Thursday Movie Picks #50: Fake Relationships

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Fake Relationships!

Now, I usually don't watch a lot of romantic movies, but I have watched many romance films that dealt with couples faking a relationship to impress their parents or to move up the ladder in their lives, only to realize that they actually care about the person they were faking the relationship with.  So, here are a couple of romance films where the couples fake their relationships that I have seen so far!

A pushy boss forces her young assistant to marry her in order to keep her visa status in the U.S. and avoid deportation to Canada.

This movie is one of my all-time favorite romantic comedies ever made!  Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock's chemistry with each other is fantastic and hilarious and of course, Betty White is one of the best highlights in the film!  I just loved the comedic moments and drama this film had and it's become a favorite movie in our family! 

A struggling artist working as a waitress kidnaps one of her customers to bring home and meet her parents at Christmas.

Another favorite movie in my family, Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez's chemistry with each other was hilarious to look at and I actually found the plot about the main character kidnapping one of her customers to make him her fiancΓ©e just to impress her family to be really hilarious! 

3. Borrowed Hearts

Kathleen's a hard-working single mother, who's saving to buy a house for herself and her daughter, Zoe.  Sam's a businessman who has to pretend he has a family in order to close a deal with the mysterious Javier Del Campo.  Sam owns the company that Kathleen works for, and as her boss, manages to convince her to help him out. But Del Campo is more than he seems, and it just might be Zoe who's making the real deal to get a new home for herself, her mother, and Sam.

I remembered watching this movie a bit when I was younger, but it's been a while since I last saw this movie, so I don't really remember much about this movie.  All I remembered was that my mom really enjoyed this movie and I did managed to see bits and pieces of this movie.  Definitely planning on re watching this movie soon!
