Theme Week 2 -Love

L.A. Story

plot: A weatherman down on his luck, finds out his girlfriend has been cheating on him for the last three years. While processing the emotions, he meets two other women, a divorced woman his own age and a store clerk half his age. Unsure what to do next, he finds himself at the mercy of a street sign that begins to give him advice.

This is a 1991 romantic comedy starring Steve Martin and Sarah Jessica Parker.

I'm surprised I've never seen this movie before. It was cute, witty even.

I loved the idea of the theme - when we hit a crossroads in life we need a sign- and literally making that the plot of the story. Not just in a metaphoric way, but literally having an electric street sign at an intersection telling the lead character what to do.
I also loved the fact it points out that growing up and falling in love, does not equal knowing how to handle it, and still being blown away by the whole thing. That just because you're an adult, doesn't mean you're immune to feeling like a nervous teenager.
