Movies Week #5: Best 15Romantic Comidies

I am not a massive fan of romantic comedies, but when I do like a good one every now and again. Now I think that there are more romantic comedies than there needs to be, but I guess that's what people enjoy the most, and it does give that satisfying feeling at the end! So lets get started with my favorite Romcom ever!

1. You've Got Mail (1998): Meg Ryan is arguably the cutest woman on earth! And I must say  that any combination of Tom Hanks and her seems to work splendidly! So in this movie, Meg owns a small bookstore that goes bankrupt thanks to a bigger bookstore that opens right across the street from it. And around that time she starts chatting with some guy on an internet chat up line, and they decide to meet, but its complicated, funny, heartwarming, just incredible. If you're feeling down and in need of a quick pick me up kinda movie, look no further, this is the one, the one and only!
This movie features Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, and some others.

2. While You Were Sleeping (1995): As a massive Sandra Bullock fan, I must say that this is one of her best of the best. While You Were Sleeping talks about a lonely girl who rescues a man who then goes unconscious, she pretends to be his fiance for a while, then she practically falls in love with the family as well as the family falls for her. This is such a fun watch, highly highly recommended, and in the world of Hollywood romcoms, Sandra is a queen.
This movie features Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman, and some others.

3. Something's Gotta Give (2003): What can be sweeter than seeing two "older" people fall in love? Not to mention, Diane Keaton is practically the prettiest "older" woman I've ever seen, well not as pretty as my grandmothers, but close! So Diane Keaton is this playwright who has been divorced for a while, and whose daughter comes home with a much older guy, Jack Nicholson, yeah, that same brilliant Jack! So Jack starts having some health issues and he is forced to stay in bed for some time, and during that time Diane and Jack get to know each other, and then they say goodbye, etc etc. They kind of fall for each other, but Jack refuses to admit that to himself for a while, and in short, this is a great movie. No more spoilers!
This movie features Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, and some others

4. As Good  As It Gets (1997): Jack Nicholson, again, is a guy with OCD or something, and he meets a single mom waitress who happens to be the gorgeous Helen Hunt (MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN!), and they change each other's lives! So beautiful you need to see it 10 times in a row!
This movie features Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, and some others!

5. The Curse of the Jade Scorpion (2001): What's a good romcom recommendation without Woody Allen! So Woody Allen and Helen Hunt are coworkers who cannot stand each other, and then they go to a restaurant and get hypnotized by a magician, and the magician starts calling them and making them steal for him. This is one of the funniest of these recommendations for sure!
This movie features Helen Hunt, Woody Allen, and some others!

6. Love Potion No. 9 (1992): Another one of Sandra's bests is this. Sandra is a biologist who has no time to look after herself, she is not that charming in conversations, and she has almost a nonexistent love life. So she gets her hands on this magic potion that turns things upside down, and her coworker and her end up falling in love!
This movie features Sandra Bullock, Tate Donovan, and some others.

7. Big Momma's House (2000): Martin is a legendary comedian indeed. If you're up to a little bit of soft slapstick mixed with getting dressed up and all that jazz, then you're on the right track if you decide to watch this one! So an officer undercover pretends to big a big fat woman in order to catch a criminal, and its funny and some complications happen and love happens and you have to watch it!
This movie features Martin Lawrence, Nia Long, and some others.

8. Mrs. Doubtfire (1993): Robin Williams is also a comedy star! So in this movie, he tries to fight for custody rights of his kids while pretending to be an old female housekeeper in his own house. He learns how to be responsible, and he teaches others how to be fun and yet tolerant. This is a classic, a must watch indeed!
This movie features Robin Williams, Sally Field, and some other.

9. Moonstruck (1987): A true romcom indeed. A woman who is engaged to a "boring" man falls for his brother, and its crazy and beautiful and its a must watch! Plus, Cher is stunning... UGH!

10. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002): A true Cinderella type of movie where the woman turns from ugly to beautiful for the opportunity of love! My Big Fat Greek Wedding is the loveliest movie that introduces culture clashes in such a lightweight and comic way. Two different people meet, fall in love, their families meet, some funny things happen, and its just all funny and cute!
This movie features Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, and some others.

11. Meet the Parents (2000): A classic indeed! when parents are about to meet the man who'll turn their daughter from a woman to a wife, nothing needs to happen, but when they do, they make sure you realize it. Very sweet and funny, a must watch, definitely.
This movie features Ben Stiller, Robert DeNiro, and some others.

12. Big Daddy (1999): When a child enters somebody's life, s/he will turn it upside down. For a start, a man with a little boy is one of the most appealing sights to any woman looking for a serious commitment, and a child should make a person more responsible. How will a child affect the life of Adam Sandler, and how will it affect his romantic life, I will not tell you how, because you should go watch it instead.
This movie features Adam Sandler, Joey Lauren Adams, and some others.

13. What Women Want (2000): Another great Helen Hunt movie with the astonishing Mel Gibson. So both Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt work in an advertisement company, and obviously, there's always competition among coworkers. Then on one fine night, Mel Gibson gets electrocuted, and the result is that he gained a supernatural power of hearing what goes on in any woman's mind. Is it a blessing or a curse, well watch it and find out!
This Movie Features Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt, and some others.

14. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999): A light high school kind of movie is a must have in a romcom movie recommendations, I think. I also believe that this is the best high school movie recommendation there is. So an unconventional and misinterpreted boy is paid to take an unconventional and misunderstood girl, but this set up might be the best thing that happened to both the guy and the girl.
This movie features Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, and some others.

15. My Best Friend's Wedding (1997): You don't know how much someone or something means to you until you either lose partially or completely. That is what happened to Julia Roberts when she found out that her friend is engaged, she found out she loves him. Will she decide on telling him and break his engagement off, or not? Lets find out!

But all of this is filmed in such a light and cheerful way, its funny and perfect!
