Three Action-Romantic-Comedy You Will Love To Watch

It’s rare that a movie combines three of the top genres into one, and rarer still that it actually works, but these 3 films managed to pull it off splendidly. Checkout:

True Lies

Schwarzenegger is in full flow in this James Cameron’s remake of the French movie ‘La Totale!’ playing an undercover counter-terrorism agent who’s pretending to be a computer salesman in front of his wife, played by Jamie Lee Curtis. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis are a match made and they play Harry and Helen Tasker. The family seems to be going through a rough patch due to Harry’s constant absence from the family. While Helen and Dana, their daughter, believe this is due to the traveling Harry has to do as a computer salesman, it is actually due to the fact that Harry is constantly busy with his secret missions. Of course, when Harry tries to reveal this to Helen as a surprise, it all goes terribly wrong when they are kidnapped by a terrorist group. The zany plot packs in nuclear warheads, a double-dealing art dealer, Art Malik’s buffoonish Arab terrorist, and Curtis’ valiant attempts to save her marriage.

The Princess Bride
Endlessly quotable, Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride tells the story within a story of farmhand Westley and his quest to rescue his true love, Buttercup. The humor of The Princess Bride is its most distinctive feature, but Reiner doesn’t lose sight of such basic values as action, adventure and romance. There’s some brilliant swordplay and a sacred quest tucked away in the corners of this movie. And by the end, you can’t help rooting for Westley and Buttercup to be reunited. This loose adaptation of William Goldman’s half-serious fairy tale could have been just another spoof sword and sorcery adventure but somehow manages to transcend that tiresome genre. This is because it again treats children with respect, allowing them an adult sense of humour but also a childlike sense of the fantastic too. The Princess Bride is the film for all ages.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Based on the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley, this movie features Michael Cera as the title character who must battle his girlfriend Ramona’s seven evil exes, who are trying to kill him. When Scott first meets Ramona, however, he simultaneously goes out with her and the girl he was already dating, Knives. Before Scott can fight the final ex, Knives and Ramona fight over Scott. Scott ends up apologizing to them both, defeating the seventh ex, Gideon with Knives’ help and ultimately chooses to follow the leaving Ramona. Talk about a rough relationship? Lol…

That’s all folks!
