Living as Emma in
THE SAINT

I remember watching The Saint with Val Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue and thinking, "Damn, I wish I wrote that."  It had it all. A hot guy (with impeccable hair). A geeky, beautiful heroine. Exotic destinations. The KGB! Every romantic suspense novel should have an appearance by the KGB! Simon (The Saint) climbs down into a frozen Russian river, and naturally only naked flesh against naked flesh can keep him from succumbing to hypothermia!

THE MUMMY

If I was living out my favorite romance movie it would have to be The Mummy. I just love Brendan Frasier and Rachel Weisz’s chemistry together. He has the perfect balance of respect and protectiveness towards her – it’s almost palpable. Plus, if I was living that movie, I’d get to walk around saying, “I am proud of what I am. I am… a librarian!”

Living as Ellen in
DAVE

If I could live in a fantasy world, I would replace Sigourney Weaver in the movie DAVE.  I loved Kevin Kline as the kind-loving imposter who took the place of the president.  I’d make the world a better place and be smiling the whole time doing it.  He’s my absolute favorite!

Living as Lucy in
WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING

My favorite romantic movie is While You Were Sleeping, starring Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. Lucy has a crush on a man who rides the train. When Peter falls on the tracks one day, she saves him and ends up at the hospital. A nurse overhears her mumbling about being his girlfriend and BOOM, she's sitting next to his bed and meeting his family. It's so wrong, and she knows it.  But it isn't until she meets Peter's brother, Jack, that she realizes she's with the wrong man. The harder she tries to tell the truth, the worse things become. Instead of spending Christmas alone, she's surrounded by her new family. She agrees to marry Peter and is standing at the altar when she finally admits that she's in love with Jack.

It's sweet and funny!  I love a happy ending, especially when it’s the girl-next-door who thinks she knows exactly what she wants.

BEAUTY and the BEAST

I'd like to live in Beauty and the Beast. That library is fantastic! :)

Living as Allie in
THE NOTEBOOK

I would want to live out The Notebook. I love how both characters went on to do other things with their lives, but they eventually found a way back to the love they shared. I love the passion between them and Noah's support of Ally's painting, something she loves to do. I would also hope to be with my love right up until the day I died.

Living as Cathy in
AMERICAN DREAMER

One of the reasons I love writing romantic suspense is that my heroes and heroines really do live their convictions. They sacrifice for the people they love. Even through their flaws, in the end they are unselfish, courageous and worthy.  I always hope I would be heroic if faced with the same challenges. But we all have doubts and fears. In American Dreamer, through a bump on the head, the heroine forgets her past and her doubts and her fears and believes she’s the heroine of a romantic thriller series. She begins to live the life of a heroine, to dangerous—and hilarious—results. Her fantasy gets caught up in others’ reality. It’s one of my all-time faves!

I can’t believe it. AMERICAN DREAMER is my favorite movie!!!!! I’ve met only one other person who loved it!!!  I wish I’d WRITTEN American Dreamer.

Living as Tess in
FOOL’S GOLD

If I lived in a romantic suspense movie, I’d definitely want to live in Fool’s Gold. Adventure, water, and sun! Spending my days scuba diving, yachting around the tropics and finding sunken treasure with the one I love sounds like paradise!

Living as Nora in
THE THIN MAN

After much thought, I settled on the original of The Thin Man series. Based on a Dashiell Hammet mystery, Nora (Myrna Loy) is a socialite wife to her detective/husband Nick Charles (William Powell). No matter how long I do Nutrisystem, I won’t have a long lean body like Mryna Loy, but it’s fun to fantasize. Quick and quirky dialogue + the relationship between Nick and Nora, which steamed from the screen, kept movie goers returning again and again.

Living as Joan in
ROMANCING THE STONE

I'd love to be Joan Wilder in Romancing the Stone because she's so successful as a writer that men in a remote town in Columbia have read her book and because she has wild adventures with a dashing hero. And because my book set in Peru features gold plates, a handsome hero and a jungle trek.

Living as Reggie in
THE CLIENT

One of my fave movies of all time is The Client. (Lol, yes, I know it’s based on a book). So I don’t smoke like Reggie, but I am pretty sarcastic. I love that this little kid with no money came to her, and she wanted to kick him to the curb but couldn’t. She’s strong and not afraid to go after the bad guys no matter the danger.

Living as Kate in
KATE & LEOPOLD

A history buff, I'm a sucker for a great time travel romance. As a teen I swooned over Christopher Reeve in Somewhere in Time and adored those dreamy turn-of-the-century hats and white dresses. In this millennium, my vote goes to Kate & Leopold, where we find Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman at their best. Smart, funny, sexy, and ultimately suspenseful! Time can be a powerful and cruel villain.

SHANGHAI KNIGHTS

A movie I think would be fun(ny) to “live” is Shanghai Knights.  It stars Jackie Chan (as Chon Wang) and Owen Wilson (as Roy O'Bannon).  It’s goofy and fun, but it does have suspense, and one of my favorite scenes is when Chon Wang's sister (Roy's love interest) runs into Jack the Ripper, kicks him in the head and knocks him into the river.  (Now you know why Jack the Ripper stopped killing!)

Living as June in
KNIGHT AND DAY

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be June in KNIGHT AND DAY. This movie represents my books and ultimate wish list! I write about heroines caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, then taken on an adventure with the man they complete. What a dream! This movie hits all the right buttons for me with it's humor, honor, action, chemistry and music. I actually write every book to the soundtrack. I love the dialogue. It's one of my favorite movies to quote. "With me. Without me," has become a favorite with me and my hubby. Along with, "It's someday, Roy."

  5. My goodness, Angi, this may be the best blog post ever! Love the films people chose and watching the clips. I hadn't seen a clip of The Thin Man in ages, but the dialogue was a quick and clever as I remembered. Thanks for this. So glad I could participate. I'll be sharing for sure.

  6. Great movie choices! Saw Romancing the Stone 22 times at the theater when it came out! Movies were a lot cheaper then! I love American Dreamer. Poor Tom Conti was always one step behind. While You Were Sleeping has my favorite movie line, "Peter once asked me when it was I fell in love with Jack, and I told him, "It was while you were sleeping!"" (Sigh) If you watch the movie, you'll understand. I think if I could live out a movie it would have to be either Romancing the Stone or Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson and Doris Day. They were so good together and Rock Hudson was tall, dark, and handsome. (Another sigh) They don't make movies like that any more. Funny, no one wanted to be a Bond girl!
