Coming Soon… February Movie Releases

Happy Rom-Com Month, darlings! Whether you like it or not, February means releases of cheesy, Nicholas Sparks-type movies. Rather than bore you with the typical Valentine’s Day films, check out some of these quirky, love(ish) inspired stories.

For the “friend-zoned”: “Cavemen”

Three words: Chad. Michael. Murray. While this trailer made me ponder CMM’s whereabouts since One Tree Hill’s series finale, that’s a potential think piece for a different day… “Cavemen” looks like the typical ‘we’re friends, but it’s really something more but we’re both too nervous to make the first move’ type of rom-com. Skyler Astin plays the adorable best man-friend to the beautiful Camilla Belle and CMM obvi plays the douchey foil to Astin’s likeable character. Could this be the Millennial version of “When Harry Met Sally…” ? Highly doubtful, but looks enjoyable nonetheless.

Release Date: Feb. 7

For the poet: “Adult World”

This seems to be less of a movie about romantic relationships and more of a story about the crazy love affair we have with our aspirations. Amy Anderson (Emma Roberts) is out of school, learning the ropes of adulthood, and realizing that her dreams of becoming a renowned poet won’t happen overnight. Seems quirky and a tad eccentric, so it’s right up my alley. Plus, John Cusack is in it. SOLD.

Release Date: Feb. 14

For the twisted lover: “In Secret”

By far, the creepiest of these love-themed movies, “In Secret” stars Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Felton, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange. Therese (Olsen) is stuck in a passionless marriage with her cousin (Felton) but finds herself engulfed in a thrilling affair with Laurent (Issac). Seems like the makings for some good old-fashioned, 19th century drama, but things don’t appear to end well (spoiler alert: looks like Cousin Malfoy doesn’t make it)!

Release Date: Feb. 21

So what’s your pick? Tweet @litdarling with the movie you plan on checking out this month.


As a publicist outside of Boston, Molly’s career centers around tech companies but her unhealthy obsession with Hollywood is a full-time hobby. As such, she’s had several celebrity sightings in her lifetime. 2000: Dancing back-up for Aaron Carter, Molly was decked out in a yellow and silver-sequined unitard. Pictures have since been burned. Molly can’t decide if she’s more embarrassed about the unfortunate costume or the fact that she shared the stage with a Backstreet Boys’ younger brother. 2006: Susan Sarandon tapped on Molly’s shoulder as she cleared tables at an ice cream shop on the Cape. Molly, thrilled to meet her favorite Stepmom, quickly came down from this celebrity high as an evil co-worker swooped in and stole the table. She almost Thelma and Louised his ass. 2007: As a badass high school senior, Molly crashed an event at Brown University to meet John Krasinski, her TV crush. A true gentleman, John agreed to a picture with the awkward teen and commented that he had a lot of chest hair showing that day. He did indeed. Fun fact: That’s also the closest Molly has ever been to Ivy League-anything. 2009: Molly was in a Nordstrom dressing room and in walked Kellan Lutz. No, seriously, that happened. Whether it’s dissecting the trashiest moments of a Bravo series or praising the latest HBO or Showtime masterpiece, Molly writes about anything and everything entertainment has to offer for Literally, Darling.
