What is your favourite romantic comedy?

Asked by mcsnazzy (434points) June 12th, 2013

I’m trying to find a movie to watch that I haven’t yet seen. Lately I’ve been on a romantic comedy kind of thing. I watched, The Women, I watched Pretty Woman, and I watched The Wedding Planner. What do you guys suggest?

Bringing up Baby…with a young and gorgeous Cary Grant and ditto Katherine Hepburn. Made in 1938 but has aged very well.

Sleepless in Seattle
When Harry Met Sally
An Affair to Remember
Charade(1963_film) with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant again (it is 1963 and he is still gorgeous).

Oldies:
The Philadelphia Story
Holiday
(what can I say, I love Kate)

I love the Nora Ephron ones as well, and I would add the fun John Hughes rom-coms, like
Some Kind of Wonderful
Pretty in Pink

And then there are some that are dear to my heart, even if lesser known, like
Crossing Delancy
Truly Madly Deeply
^^ clip mostly for @Kardamom, who I’m sure will be along soon. :)

Shakespeare in Love.

Okay not really a comedy but I can’t stand typical rom coms and I love that movie.

Seek's avatar

I don’t typically do the rom-com thing, but I thought The Ugly Truth was hilarious.

dabbler's avatar

Not necessarily my favorite (so many great ones mentioned above) but to add to the mix:
“So I Married an Axe Murderer” Mike Myers and Nancy Travis

rockfan's avatar

I’m surprised no one has mentioned The Apartment yet. I also like Silver Linings Playbook, Sideways, Beginners, Lost in Translation, 500 Days of Summer, and Garden State.

What’s Up Doc
Annie Hall
Ghost

Don’t do chick flicks, but those are exceptions to an otherwise yawn filled rule.

Amélie It’s so clever and quirky that it so worth it, even if you aren’t a fan of subtitles. We found it on Netflix, but it’s one that I’d spend the money to purchase it.

Another is Serendipity. It’s one where you can’t help but hope that the couple meet again despite all of the odds against it. Jeremy Pivin’s role as the comic sidekick of John Cusack is in fine form.

@jordym84 One of the main reasons I like it alot is because of DeNiro’s performance, it took him so long to be in a good movie again. I also love the complete random casting choice of Chris Tucker, his character was surprisingly mellow and down to earth, and added alot of warmth to the movie, unlike alot of other characters he’s played.

mcsnazzy's avatar

Thanks everyone! I look forward to slowly conquering this “to watch” list :)

Gabby101's avatar

I liked The Upside of Anger (rom-com?), You’ve Got Mail, Crossing Delancey, and Bridget Jone’s Diary.

jordym84's avatar

@rockfan Agreed!!

I almost forgot to mention another all-time favorite: Midnight in Paris.

Ladyhawke is a nice romantic comedy. It is an old movie but well worth it. It stars Rutger Hauer, Michele Pfieffer, and Matthew Broderick.

“HER” must watch movie, give it a try.

rockfan's avatar
