Every year as the nights draw in, I love to get cosy to films such as Home Alone, Sleepless in Seattle, Love Actually and my absolute winter favourite, The Holiday.
Just in case you haven’t watched it, the movie centres around two strangers; Iris and Amanda (played by Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz) who swap houses in LA and Surrey for 10 days. Iris has a broken heart and Amanda has just been cheated on by her boyfriend; the impulsive decision to house swap pays off and they both have life changing experiences.
Here is his explanation of a meet cute: ‘a man and a woman both need something to sleep in and both go to the same men’s pyjama department. The man says to the salesman, “I just need bottoms,” and the woman says, “I just need a top.” They look at each other and that’s the ‘meet cute.’ I just love that.
