8Eat Pray Love
Writer Elizabeth Gilbert suddenly finds herself feeling trapped in a marriage she doesn’t want in life, she didn’t envision. Despite the fact that she chose to fashion that very life, now she wants out — and that realization will destroy her husband and worry her friends.
A love affair with a young actor isn’t the answer, and neither is disappearing into her sorrows. So she decides to go to Italy, where she hopes to rediscover her passion for food, and, perhaps, life; to India, where she seeks spiritual connection; and to Bali, where she may finally forgive herself.
It’s there that she meets a Brazilian man who just might convince her that love is worth the risk.

7Crazy, Stupid, Love
Over dinner, fortysomething Cal’s almost twenty-five-year marriage to his high school beloved, Emily, collapses after one dreaded little sentence: she wants a divorce to take a chance of love with a man who doesn’t take her for granted.
Helpless, hopeless, and like a fish out of water, the now-single Cal finds himself out on a limb, until he chances upon the self-confident Lothario and exceptional pickup artist, Jacob, who decides to take him under his wing.
Now, nothing will ever be the same again–and as the rusty and pitiable seducer in making rediscovers his latent manliness–something utterly unpredictable happens: Jacob, too, is susceptible to the intoxicating feeling of deep affection. Who said love was easy?

In Legally Blonde, adorable Southern California sorority girl Elle Woods is about to graduate with a major in fashion marketing. Her life seems perfect. Her biggest challenge is what to wear for what she thinks will be a marriage proposal from her beau, Warner Huntington III.
But he has another idea. He has decided to break up with her before he leaves for Harvard Law School because she’s not the right type to help him in his political career. Elle decides that the only way to get him back is to join him at Harvard. So, she studies hard, aces, LSATs, and, with the help of a very unique videotaped application essay, she is admitted.
Her new classmates are skeptical and tease her. Worst of all, Warner is engaged to a girl who looks like an ad for Town and Country magazine. They won’t let her study with them and they play a cruel joke on her.
But Elle surprises them all — and even herself — by becoming a first-class law student and a first-class lawyer while staying true to herself. She ends up defending a murder suspect with whom she has a special rapport and conducting a cross-examination that would impress Perry Mason.

2 Forgetting Sarah Marshall
When his TV actress girlfriend, the titular Sarah Marshall, calls to say she’s arrived home early from a trip and is coming over, Peter hustles to get his apartment cleaned and strips naked, hoping for an action-packed homecoming.
Instead, she dumps him (while he’s still naked), sending him into paroxysms of grief. To forget her, he heads to Hawaii — but, as luck would have it, she’s vacationing there, too, with her new beau, rocker Aldous Snow.
