In your typical screen fare, omens prove true, ghosts are real, monsters do exist, psychics are genuine, superstition is accurate, extraterrestrials are here, conspiracy theorists have the truth, God works in mysterious but irrefutable ways while skeptics are forced to change theirs or fall victim to divine retribution, blood-soaked fangs, malicious poltergeists, path-crossing black cats, sinister government forces and the like. But sometimes we get a different point of view.

A "meet cute" is a convention in which the plot finds a contrived way for its two romantic leads to meet. The device is most associated with 1930s screwball comedies, and their successors, and is particularly useful in bringing together two persons who wouldn't normally meet, especially persons in radically different social circles.

Eli Wallach's character in The Holiday (2006) describes it thusly: "Say a man and a woman both need something to sleep in and both go to the same men's pajama department. The man says to the salesman 'Ted, I just need bottoms,' and the woman says, 'I just need a top.' They look at each other and that's the meet cute."

These ten movies might be my desert island picks—although part of me would be tempted just to take ten Hitchcocks.
