MaryAnn’s quick take… A rom-com for people who hate rom-coms. A painfully funny movie, full of enrapturing emotion that captures the glorious contradictions of all kinds of love. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

Romance radio host Delilah says she fields thousands of requests and dedications from her devoted millions-deep radio following who tune into her nationally syndicated show nightly. February is a particular busy time for the “Queen of Sappy Love Songs,” who is also known for advice-giving, as she highlights love songs and stories all month long.
“I really do think that putting expectations on a holiday is setting yourself up for failure,” Delilah, 56, tells People exclusively. “A lot of times, in our culture and our society, we put romantic love somehow on a higher plane than self-love and friendship love. You can’t do that. »
