Great Life Great Love put together the Top 10 best movie quotes for you to bring out some of the most romantic moments and love lessons from the big screen. These love quotes share some of Hollywood’s most romantic scenes, and yes we admit to watching the top movies for way too many hours. We write Great Love Reviews and watched hundreds of romance movies, including the classic Pride and Prejudice, When Harry Met Sally, Eat Pray Love, and even The Hangover. Hollywood really knows how to write the best love quotes that trigger an emotional reaction and make us think about our own relationships.
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.
Great Life Great Love is happy to share the 2011 Golden Globes Awards Winners and Survey Results based on feedback from movie lovers on the best films, actors, actresses, directors, screenplays and songs who voted thru Facebook and Twitter in our poll. We write Great Love Reviews with love lessons from the big screen from our Los Angeles-based home, and awards season is our favorite time of year!
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.
Great Life Great Love is all about helping you attract the Great Love that you deserve, and the holidays are the perfect time to get out there and take more chances. If you’re one of the 97 million singles in the US (ages 18 and older), here are 10 Holiday Pickup Lines plus 5 Flirty Bonus Questions that can help you find great dates this season. For the best results, deliver these icebreakers with a big grin and confidence (It’s all about the delivery, and confidence is the sexiest part of your wardrobe! And if you’re sad, leave your glum at home or these lines won’t work. Take my advice in the pickup department, “fake it until you make it.”)
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.
If you’re ready for some great laughs and romantic comedy, check out Morning Glory with a 5-star cast: Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum, Ty Burrell and Patrick Wilson (aka Rachel’s great love interest.) When Rachel (Becky) gets fired from her Good Morning New Jersey producer job, it’s the best thing that ever happened to her. When knocked down, Becky’s career comeback is truly entertaining and inspirational.
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.
When Apple released it’s iPhone 4 last Thursday, the record pre-order reservations (600,000) and long store lines (many reporting up to a 12 hour wait) make you wonder if this love affair with a cell phone has gone overboard? Have iPhones become more important than romantic relationships? If you saw the Manhattan Beach Village Mall (video below) line wrapped around Macy’s, you’d say it looks like the same crazy draw that we feel when we first start building a Great Love relationship.
If you’re looking for some hope that Great Love can be found, check out The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez (Zoe) and Alex O’Loughlin (Stan). In this fun romantic comedy, Zoe meets the right guy who is a Bachelor Available (best kind of guy in my first book, Smart Man Hunting). As soon as Zoe decides to give up and have a baby on her own, her man magically appears. What we learn about love in this movie is that it’s important to be open to a relationship when the real deal shows up.
Great Life Great Love is about building a Great Life to attract Great Love, and teaches about love through lessons from the big screen. To bring you insights from Old and Young Hollywood, we went to the TCM Classic Film Festival in Los Angeles last week, and interviewed Baltimore actor Vincent De Paul about his lunch with Luise Rainer (the first woman to win two consecutive Academy Award Winner) and many movie projects. We also photographed a rare moment where Luise talked about her Great Love in a live interview with Robert Osborne from TCM.
Great Life Great Love is all about building a great life to attract great love, which is why we asked celebs at a Precious Oscar Pre-Party about the messages to women about building their self-esteem. Precious went through unimaginable challenges, and through the help of a great teacher and writing a journal, she starts building her confidence in this Best Picture nominated film. We were fortunate to interview Ashlan Gorse (E! Red Carpet Reporter and Event Host), Lee Daniels (Best Director Nominee and Event in his honor) and Dennis Haysbert (Actor who plays the President on 24) about the love lessons from the big screen (and yes, it took courage to ask these questions on the red carpet).
