Hello Couchers! Can you feel the love? It is the 1st of February and I know that you are all feeling the love and are excited to post your LOVE MOVIES for this month. But before we get all mushy and stuff, just an important announcement.

Good enough huh?
So now let's get down to business. For this Tuesday, our theme is Storge / Familial Love: Because We Are A Family. I do enjoy watching these kind of movie for all the good reasons: there is moral value in the theme, the scenes are wholesome, they always make you happy in the end, there are good lessons to be learned, and although some plots are far from realistic, you still are able to relate with one character or another. What's my pick this week? That will have to be Meet The Fockers. This is one of my favorite family movies because it simply is hilarious, sweet and well, I can just relate with most of the characters.
You know how it is when parents meet for the first time. There will always be first impressions and all that. In the movie, there were trust issues and reservations about one another and as the story unfolded and the conflicts became bigger and funnier because it felt like I am seeing some real life scenes in the film, you just can't help but be impressed at how they managed to stay in tact in the end. And I guess no matter the differences, you will always end up accepting and letting go of your defenses to be able to really embrace and welcome someone into your life. That is the miracle of love. After all, a FAMILY is all you've got at the end of the day.
