If you’ve ever struggled with a long-distance relationship, Like Crazy is for you. In this entertaining Sundance 2011 hit, Drake Doremus (Director), Anton Yelchin (Jacob) and Felicity Jones (Anna) capture the heartache involved in long-distance love. This young couple has extraordinary circumstances with a 6,000 mile distance between London and Los Angeles, and you can feel every emotion that they’re going through as they text each other, deal with time zone differences, and wonder what the other person is doing all the time. Jennifer Lawrence (Oscar Nominee for Sundance hit, Winter’s Bone) works with Jacob, and plays a much different role as Jacob’s distraction when the couple spends months separated. Many congrats to Drake Doremus for winning the Grand Jury Prize Drama at the festival (same prize Precious won.)
After coaching both men and women how to increase their self-esteem as a Life and Love Coach, the celebrity panels for Miss Representation and Women in Film at the Sundance Film Festival hit close to home. My latest project, Great Life Great Love, is about helping singles build a Great Life to attract Great Love. If you love yourself first, it’s much easier to attract great relationships. We all want to feel good inside, and it’s important that media images fuel confidence over fear. With 51% of the US population being female, Miss Representation is a call-to-action for both men and women to change the media perceptions of women.
If you’re ready for an entertaining film that’s based on a true story and is all about relationships, you’ll love The Fighter with Mark Wahlberg (“Irish” Mickey Ward), Christian Bale (Dickey Eklund) and Amy Adams (Mickey’s girlfriend Charlene Fleming.) When Mickey gets beaten badly in the opening fight by a boxer who is 20 pounds heavier, the film turns into a powerful comeback story with many conflicts between love and money. Everyone wants a piece of Mickey, and there is a clear divide between who really cares, and who’s there for their own personal gain in this very small town story.
If you want to see a fun and light-hearted romantic comedy, How Do You Know with Reese Witherspoon (Lisa), Owen Wilson (Matty), Paul Rudd (George) and Jack Nicholson (George’s dad, Charles) is the ticket this holiday. Lisa plays a professional softball player, who finds herself in the middle of a career crisis and love-triangle twists while searching for her “regular plan.” Everyone in this movie is actually going through a self-discovery struggle, making How Do you Know the perfect title.
If you’re looking for love online, you’ll get more first dates if you avoid these 10 internet dating photo bloopers. When I was talking to a Dating Coaching client, he shared, “I can’t believe the number of women who post photos with a fish,” and my reply was, “I thought only guys do that.” Your photos are the most important part of your profile because it’s the first place everyone looks. If you don’t pass their “Kiss Test” with the photos, let’s face it, they are going to hit delete. To increase your chances of finding Great Love online, below are brutally honest comments and photo bloopers to avoid.
f you’re ready for inspiration, go see the movie Secretariat with Diane Lane (Penny Chenery Tweedy). It’s about the powerful Great Love Relationships between a horse, owner and champion team. Penny’s focus and determination results in the 1973 Triple Crown winner (race video below). To reach this dream, she gets challenged by her husband, Dylan Walsh (Jack Tweedy) and brother, Dylan Baker (Hollis Chenery), who want to sell Secretariat and Meadow Farm in Virginia when her parents pass away. Penny builds 5 powerful relationships that make the love lessons in this film off the charts. Secretariat triumphs with a winning team that Penny creates:
If you’re one of the 500 million users on Facebook, you must see The Social Network with Jesse Eisenberg (Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO), Justin Timberlake (Sean Parker, Napster Founder), Rashida Jones (Marylin Delpy) and Rooney Mara (Erica Albright, Mark’s girlfriend.) Even though the breakup in the opening scene is fiction, you’ll be glued to Mark’s comeback story about how he built Facebook. We actually get two love lessons from this movie, the made-up story and Mark’s real life love story.
If you’ve ever wanted to escape reality for a great adventure, go see Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts (Liz), Billy Crudup (Stephen), James Franco (David), and Javier Bardem (Felipe). This entertaining film is based on the book by Elizabeth Gilbert, who takes a relationship timeout after a painful divorce and bad breakup to get in touch with herself. Liz’s one-year travel adventures in Italy, India and Bali offer fun reality checks and great love lessons about attracting the right kind of love.
If you love mysteries, London, and Big Ben, then Sherlock Holmes can take you there. However, if you’re looking for romance in this film, it’s even more of a mystery to find for Sherlock (Robert Downey Jr), Watson (Jude Law), Irene (Rachel McAdams) and Mary (Kelly Reilly). The biggest love lesson in this movie is avoid falling for a mystery man who is totally obsessed with work. Below are 3 romance clues that signal trouble based on this movie.
If you’re ready for a new visual experience and Great Love Magic, go see the hot movie, Avatar. The love story between Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) is even more spectacular than the scenery. Jake is sent by the military into the forests of Pandora with an “an Avatar” identity so he looks like the Na’vi natives. While his primary mission is to build trust and get counter intelligence, Jake has no idea that he will find Great Love Magic when he meets Neytiri, daughter of the King.
Have you heard about the Sundance hit, An Education that is getting rave reviews from both the critics and viewers? In this romantic movie, we learn a ton about naïve love from Carey Mulligan (Jenny) and Peter Sarsgaard (David) who tempts her with a Great Life, but falls short on being a Great Love. The movie takes places in the suburbs of London in 1960s, and is filled with creative twists that make this movie a must see!
Along with a ton of laughs, there are Great Love lessons in the hot summer hit, The Hangover. While most of the movie is about a wild bachelor party, the tigers come out in Las Vegas and Los Angeles to test the trust in their relationships. As soon as someone starts challenging you with crazy Tiger Talk, you want to run. Here’s the Entourage, Wild Tigers and Cool Cougars in this fun comedy.

If you’re ready for a refreshing take on relationships on the big screen, go see 500 Days of Summer with Zooey Deschanel (Summer) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Tom). While there is heartache in this movie, the story gets 5 stars for being so cleverly presented. We can all relate to longing for a lover who’s just not into us. After trying to see this movie at Sundance and the LA Film Festival, it was a relief to finally watch it on a big digital screen with an awesome guy friend!
If you want to laugh out loud at a guy’s dating rules, go see The Ugly Truth with Katherine Heigl (Abby) and Gerard Butler (Mike). Based on pure entertainment value, this movie gets 5 stars in my book for bringing out absurd relationship advice and fun. Just when Katherine thinks she knows what true love looks like, Gerard gives her some twisted advice in this romantic comedy.
