Romance 101 (Heartbreakers / Legally Blonde / The Cutting Edge)

Despite Twentieth Century Fox’s procurement of the distribution rights to MGM’s illustrious filmed properties, these “College Essentials” only encompass MGM titles instead of mixing titles from both studio’s varied catalogs.  Despite this slight misstep, the majority of these sets are actually very warranting of purchase.  Whether or not they warrant being “essential” for weary-eyed college students or if they warrant being boxed together is another question.  Check out the rest of the College Essentials here.

This is a tricky one. Legally Blonde and Heartbreakers are similarly goofy in their romantic comedy ways so they fit well together. The Cutting Edge, although it features a good amount of comedy, tends to sway farther to the romantic side and doesn’t fit with the other two. The problem? This set is called ROMANCE 101 not ROMANTIC COMEDY 101” so technically the first two are the oddballs out.
