Rom-coms are the easiest to do but the hardest to perfect... here are my all-time faves (in chronological order)! (With some romance films thrown in there too... because I can't always tell the difference)
  1. The Parent Trap (1998)
    Giphy
    This movie somehow made kids everywhere care about two old people rekindling their romance. Most satisfying ending ever!
  2. Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)
    Giphy
    "It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces." It would be morally wrong for this movie not to make this list.
  3. It's Complicated (2009)
    Giphy
    This movie makes being old look fun. Also, it would be a crime to not include a Nancy Meyers film on this list.
  4. The Proposal (2009)
    Giphy
    SO FUNNY! I'm very sure this is what helped Ryan Reynolds score Deadpool.
  5. Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
    Giphy
    Easily one of the best twists in rom-com (and potentially, cinematic) history.
  6. Friends With Benefits (2011)
    Giphy
    FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS PLOT LINES WILL NEVER GET OLD!
  7. The Giant Mechanical Man (2012)
    Giphy
    In which Danny Castellano and Pam Beesly find love. Weird, but mostly touching.
  8. Warm Bodies (2013)
    Giphy
    I don't know what the average girl's obsession with basically-dead fictional creatures is all about, but... this makes zombies as swoonworthy as vampires.
  9. About Time (2013)
    Giphy
    Time travel and alternate universes have never been this romantic.
  10. Two Night Stand (2014)
    Giphy
    Because we need more movies about online dating.
  11. Man Up (2015)
    Giphy
    Okay, but why do American actresses play British heroines so well?!
  12. Trainwreck (2015)
    Giphy
    Trainwrecks need love too! Also, Bill Hader is the crush you never knew you had.
