ROMCOMS RANKED

I am a teen girl who has begrudgingly gone to too many sleepovers. Only have movies that were marketed as romantic comedies so movies like Beyond the Lights (which is really good) and the Before Trilogy (ditto) aren't included. Also if I did not consider it a romantic comedy (The Devil Wears Prada???). Top 15 or so could pretty much be in any order
  1. 1.
    The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
    I went back and forth on whether to include this on the list. I did find it funny, but I don't know if romantic comedy is the right word for what it is.
  2. 2.
    Juno
    Gosh I love this movie. Ellen Page is great. I think it's a great portrait of being 16 and reckless.
  3. 3.
    Bachelorette
    Made the song 500 miles poignantly tragic and if any movie can do that to a novelty song it's obviously excellent.
  4. 4.
    Sleeping With Other People
    Um this movie was great.
  5. 5.
    The Graduate
    The Last Scene
  6. 6.
    Roman Holiday
    Pretty, nice people who like each other going around a beautiful city.
  7. 7.
    Clueless
    So great
  8. 8.
    Beginners
    The beginning. Just takes a lot of stylistic risks that completely work?
  9. 9.
    When Harry Met Sally
    Need to rewatch this. Rewatched and bumped.
  10. 10.
    The Princess Bride
  11. 11.
    His Girl Friday
  12. 12.
    Obvious Child
  13. 13.
    (500) Days of Summer
  14. 14.
    Amélie
  15. 15.
    Broadcast News
  16. 16.
    Pride and Prejudice
    Interesting blocking. I disagree with some of the cuts (IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR DARCY TO JUST ASK ELIZABETH TO DANCE WITHOUT BEING FORCED THE SECOND BALL, IT JUST DOESN'T. ALSO WICKHAM SHOULD BE INTRODUCED BEFORE COLLINS. AND ANOTHER THING COLONEL FITZWILLIAM SHOULD BE MORE DEVELOPED. THe ROSINGS PROPOSAL DOESN'T MAKE SENSE IN A DAY. I have many more thoughts.) Anyway, Kiera Knightley was really good.
  17. 17.
    Breakfast at Tiffany's
    My cut: Delete Mickey Rooney's character and lose the last kiss. Holly is an interesting and dynamic character and this movie kind of sucks.
  18. 18.
    Celeste and Jesse Forever
    Celeste is such a great character gosh.
  19. 19.
    Midnight in Paris
  20. 20.
    Safety Not Guaranteed
  21. 21.
    Austenland
    Stick the landing
  22. 22.
    The One I Love
    Anti-romantic scifi that's also oddly romantic (in the smallness and self-absorption of people's desires)
  23. 23.
    Bridget Jones's Diary
  24. 24.
    Annie Hall
    I still think it's funny but I don't adore it.
  25. 25.
    Intolerable Cruelty
    Coen Brother's B+ game is still the smartest kid in the class snarking his way through a funny movie.
  26. 26.
    Hello My Name is Doris
    Not a huge fan of cringe humor but solid movie
  27. 27.
    But I'm a Cheerleader
  28. 28.
    Groundhog Day
    Super funny but I don't really consider this a romcom.
  29. 29.
    Anomalisa
    A work of genius and funny but very depressing imo.
  30. 30.

  35. 35.
    Trainwreck
    First act was A+, didn't work with an Apatow movie's ideas about monogamy
  36. 36.
    Funny Face
    Ugh I do not buy Astaire and Hepburn for a second but at least you get to see Hepburn in pretty dresses and a 🔥parody of existentialism.

  38. 38.

  42. 42.

    Forgettable film I enjoyed much more than I should have.

    You've Got Mail
  46. 46.

  65. 65.
