Hi, friends! I’ve been using netflix to watch random things while I workout and yesterday I saw they had the romcom Runaway Bride. I vaguely remembered that one from 1999, but younger me didn’t think Richard Gere was attractive so it wasn’t one I really cared about much.
Holy hell that movie has not held up well. He’s a real prick. I haven’t even gotten to her running away from her current mountain-climbing fiancé but shit the indignities heaped on her character by Richard Gere’s character as well as the other men in her life… wow. I’m pretty sure Pretty Woman, despite being about a rich playboy and a prostitute, is a better relationship dynamic. Also, Hector Elizondo is a tool in this movie and I am not okay with him being a tool.
And it’s not even that old of a movie!
Has there been anything recently you’ve rewatched or watched for the first time leaving you with a WTF YIKES response at times?
