Best Romantic Comedies

Not my favorite genre, but there are some good ones out there!

The Top Ten

1 Love Actually

Awesome, awesome, awesome movie! Probably my favorite movie ever! The soundtrack is great!

THE BEST romcom ever made, hugh grant is hilarious and you will fall in love with all of the ten couples who lives are followed. Whether you watch with the girls or cuddled up with your man, make sure you have a box of tissues, a glass of wine and chocolates at the ready

Amazing movie. It has its share of comedy, but its brilliant portrayal of different people experiencing love differently really brings it home.
And it has an excellent soundtrack.

It's an amazing film showing the different links between the people and that you can really fall in love anytime anywhere and you may have already met the one.
Love it my fave film

2 50 First Dates

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! I think it might be the cutest movie I've ever seen! I love it, I cried at the end love it

50 first dates is the best romantic movie I've ever seen and best Adam Sandler movie ever!

seen it so many times and it still puts a smile on my face
it's funny, heartwarming and it's got the ingredients which make it suitable for young and old

Very different concept... but confused with the name 50 first dates for him his whole life would be a date as she doesn't remember her past

3 She's The Man

It is actually so much better than it looks on the cover. It looks like another dumb teen comedy but the story is actually really good. - jso11

Looks stupid, but it's actually adapted from Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night, or What You Will".

It actually looked like just another stupid teen comedy, but it's one of my favourite movies now! I watched it twice.. And it wasn't only because of channing tatums abs :P

AMAZING my favorite part where he was getting chased by the girlfriend and he said girl when I close my eyes I see you for who you really are and that's ugly!

4 You've Got Mail

This was just wonderful.
Their relationship over the internet, how they rely on each other and are helping each other against themselves... And Meg! I absolutely loved her and her little library!
This is a must watch. A wonderful, heartwarming film.

Perfect love-hate relationship! Fabulous ending... Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are always great together

The acting was great (Tom Hanks was amazing again). Overall the movie was great, although I would change the title. Loving the enemy would be a better one.

Such a charming film! Should be on top of the list. Hanks and Ryan make an adorable pair. This movie never gets old. Love it!

5 500 Days Of Summer

A simple story of boy meets girl where love and hate are equally part of the situation. Funny, quirky and indie. You can see the true mastery and emotion that Joseph Gorden Levitt has left us with through this film. I can honestly watch this movie over and over again.

When you watch it, you recognize yourself.
It's not like the other romcoms, where you know how it will end, this one actually surprizes you! It's very recomended to watch if you are in love with someone, especially if heshe don't share your feelings.
This movie really helps.

Different and touching. Should at least be top 5. - Castiel

I love this movie and I love zooey deschanel more

Cute and quirky

7 Sleepless in Seattle

I loved this movie,with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. - westsider29

Great movie for romantic comedy lovers! Its in my top list absolutely

8 10 Things I Hate About You

I watch it every time I find it on. Cry during the list of 10 things every time. It's a feel good movie.

This movie is far one of the best movies. It is actually something that could happen in real life and is such a beautiful and sweet movie. If you like teenage romance, yet a funny movie, this would be the perfect movie!

Julia stiles is so amazing! Not to spoil d ending or anything... but at the end she gives a marvellous speech! Brought tears to my eyes... definitely a MUST WATCH movie for all you girls!

Best movie I have watched, have watched 8 times already and it always makes me laugh especially when the guy sings the song for her... So I recommend it-- so go watch it

9 40 Year Old Virgin

This is without doubt one of the funniest movies ever....the ending will go down in history

I'm not a huge comedy fan, but this has got to be the single funniest movie I have ever seen! I don't know if I have ever laughed that hard at a movie! - heather

10 When Harry Met Sally

How is this not #1? Incredible. This is THE romantic comedy. - truckturner

This is a disgrace! It Should be number 1 - Cookiecutter26

it is the classic which actually defines the genre... a list doesn't make any difference to this Billy Crystal- Meg Ryan classic... nothing else to say... - underhill

though... ofcourse you've got mail and sleepless in seattle are supposed to be 2nd and 3rd in the list... BUT it actually is the first and the best... - underhill

15 Heartbreakers

love this movie. When I was a kid I didn't know what it was about... had to look up the actors to find out what it was :) GREAT movie

This movie was more Comedy than Romance but I love it so much - very funny and entertaining. The whole cast did a wonderful job. Also, Sigourney Weaver looked so sexy here - Irina2932

Very funny and two very good actresses with very good characters in the film and a very good funny story

Loved every second of this movie. Sigourney Weaver was amazing from the beginning till the end. Gene Hackman has great comedy acting skills ( this was really a surprise to me)
Jennifer Love Hewitt is fantastic and sexy as the cynic mean / adorable girl. All the other actors and actresses were even great in this movie ( Ray Liotta, Sarah Silverman... ).
Most of the film is based on comedy rather than romance ( the last twenty minutes of the movie is the real romance part ) but it is neverteless one of my favorites rom-com movies.

16 Notting Hill

Just loved the movie!

William: I live in Notting Hill, you live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name.
Anna: I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.

Finally, a rom-com that's actually funny! I love this film, one of the only romantic comedies I actually enjoy watching!

I can watch this one over and over, it is just great. Oops-a-daisy!

17 Maid in Manhattan

Is the BEST COMEDY ROMANCE EVER!

18 The Proposal

Funny and uplifting comedy with adorable romance and amazing actors. Love it!

Me and my husband like this, life as we know it, 50 first dates, um, let me think, oh, 27 dresses, we have seen must love dogs once, and thirteen going on thirty I have never seen the beginning

This is the only movie I still want to watch again... And I've already seen it five times.

There are some movies which are called Romantic Comedy but lacks either romance or comedy. The mixture is not good in those. Not this one. One of the best Romantic Comedies I've ever watched in my life.

19 The Princess Bride

WATCH! You wont get disappointed! It's hilarious and romantic, but is nothing like the usual chick flicks! Everyone will love it! It's a movie made for every single person in this world!

More jokes from this have been quoted on the internet than everything above it combined. Inconceivable, you say. Well' I'm sorry but I don't think that word means what you think it means.

Fantastic movie, it's more than your typical romantic comedy. It has fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles, what's not to like? - LarkwingFlight

The Only movie that every single person I know loves

20 Spaceballs

How is this a rom com...like HOW

It is totally a romantic comedy, if also a Star Wars parody. As it turned out, Yogurt was rooting for a Lone Starr/Vespa hookup the entire time. - SourNote2014

21 Crazy, Stupid, Love

Way better than Juno.

Such a cute movie with a lovely cast.

Needs to be higher!

Best funny film ever, this is what I am talking about a good movie that just has a beginning, middle and a fabulous ending

I love this movie

24 Lake House

I love it! The soundtrack, keanu reeves, the story, the endin', everything!

Who wrote the comment about " Sandra Bolluck " (? ). Is this from a 5year old kid?

SANDRA BOLLUCK IS THE MOST BEAUTIFULL ACTRESS IN THE HALL WAORD

25 Knocked Up

This Should Be Higher

26 Annie Hall

This is easily one of my all time favorite movies in general. Definitely should be higher

I agree, this is a great one. Have you ever seen Deconstructing Harry? It's also a Woody Allen film. Excellent list

BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME HANDS DOWN. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY OR YOUR MISSING OUT ON A WONDERFUL PART OF LIFE.

This movie is Woody Allen at his best. It made me laugh the whole time.

27 Friends With Benefits

Easily one of the best romantic comedies ever! It has a lot of funny humour and a great story to back it all up. One of my top 3 movies 10/10.

Honestly this movie is just incredibly cute and lovable. If you're in the mood for a romantic comedy this is perfect.

Just funny and romantic so true!

28 The Ugly Truth

This movie is so amazing! It's so hilarious and Gerald Butler and Katherine Heigl did amazing in it. I highly recommend you see this movie. - RebeccaN123

It is one of the funnest films I have seen next to just go with it and bounty hunter

One of my favourite rom. Comedy. I watch and watch and watch again and again

One of my favorites... Just loved the way they both acted...

29 Up in the Air
30 Blast From The Past

My brother told me how good this movie is. This is in my top ten favourites movies. Blends the 60's and present day so well with lots of laughter and a novel storyline. a must see.

31 27 Dresses

Out of all the romantic comedies I've ever seen, this movie takes the number 1 spot in my eyes. I absolutely love it because it seems like something that could actually happen and I bet by the end of the summer I'll have watched it 27 times! xD It's great.. and so is James Marsden. so cute!

Love this movie like anything! I loved the climax... especially the marriage in boat scene... wow watching the climax over n over again! :) must watch movie for those who like light hearted films!

32 13 Going on 30

Jennifer Garner was awesome in that one. I actually watched when I was 13 and I kinda hated at first, because I didn't wanna grow up too fast, but then I actually loved it when I found out about the message that movie sends.

Throwback to when I was like 9

33 The Holiday

I loved it, I felt so sorry for the English woman at the beginning, because of the thing with jasper, I also felt sorry for Miles when he saw his girlfriend with someone else, but all in all, great film! Bit stereotypical of England

It was hilarious and at the same time so sweet. I have to admit in the start I had my reserves especially with so many top name actors and actresses participating. But it was truly wonderful.

I thought this movie was brilliantly done. Was touching, charming, and completely gorgeous (jude law anyone? ).

one of the 'bestest' - so sweet, touching, funny, optimistic, and above all - romantic

34 Wedding Crashers

One of the best "Funny movie" I Ever seen Owen Wilson is awesome. Not for kids and family.

this was one of the funniest movies i've seen in my life.

35 Bridget Jones' Diary

I love this movie! You simply fall in love with Bridget and her way of being able to describe life in such an amazing and comedic point of view, and be able to make fun of herself and her own flaws. I think this movie is down to earth, contains great acting, as well as having great humor that seems to be very greatly woven in the plot, instead of pushing jokes into the movie that has no real effect on the actual story (which many romantic comedies do nowadays). The story has the, very un-rated, ability to be able to watch many, many, times without losing the greatness and the comedy.

Love this movie. So romantic. Why is this not #1. I love it. The audience fall in love with bridget jones and also this movie shows the real truth.

Endlessly funny, amazingly sweet. One of the top romantic comedies ever!

36 City Lights
37 It Happened One Night
38 There's Something About Mary

The funniest romantic comedy - Gaspar

39 The Sweetest Thing

SOoo funny & not to spoil it or anything, but they end up 2gether!

40 Chasing Liberty

Absolutely adorable. I could watch this movie every day and never get sick of it. It's such a good romantic movie. It makes you believe in true love.

Its so cute. Mandy Moore is really good in it too.

41 The Wedding Singer

A classic, feel good movie! Must watch for cheesy-movie lovers.

42 He's Just Not That Into You

I was amazed that this movie was so good because most of the actresses in it are really not my favorite actresses ( Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johanson ) but to my surprise ( especially Drew Barrymore ) they did all a great job. The ones who stand out however are Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Connelly (as the detail obsessed woman ). All the actors are equally great in this movie and even the more lesser-known actresses who played just a small part are all doing a great job. As for the film, the script is very well done. So good as a matter of fact that you can watch this movie over and over again.

So many good actors in that movie. It's so inspiring, fresh, cute, young, funny...and actually Jennifer Aniston is pretty good in that film, even though overall I don't like her as an actress. I've watched that movie 4 times. Enough said.

Very entertainig movie! You'll not regret watching it! A good, cheery and funny movie if you're feeling down or just not in the mood of going out a saturday night.

I loved that one

43 Sweet Home Alabama

A really cute movie! Reese Witherspoon did justice to her role! Loved it! I've watched it like 10 times and I'm still not bored of it.

44 She's All That

This is a very Heart warming story of how a guy changes someone for good.

45 My Best Friend's Wedding
46 Hitch

Both funny and romantic. Will Smith is great in this!

Always good to laugh at ourselves!

Epic, as well as sweet- HILARIOUS. With Will Smith what can go wrong?
