The Week contest: Burning love
This week's question: A love-struck British man accidentally destroyed his home after he lit hundreds of tea-light candles in his apartment, poured two glasses of wine, then went to fetch his girlfriend to propose. The couple returned to find the apartment engulfed in flames, but firefighters said she "still said YES!" If Hollywood were to make a romantic comedy about this hot love story, what should the film be titled?
