Because of its simplicity and more entertain, I believe everyone loves comedy romance film. Sometimes, some scene inspires us to do something kind of brave and romantic to someone we love.
I thought I don’t. They merely just show me about how they hate each other at first then end up kissing each other. It always has same and same formula. Boring and predictable! The theme or basic story isn’t strong as I expect, just emphasizes the charming of the artist. What a cheap film!
But as time walks, I figure out that not all comedy romance movies are like that. Some surprisingly have high quality story, script, and acting. I don’t only laugh a loud because of the comedy, but also feel amazed of the romance.
Here are the lists of my most favorite comedy romance (and this lists can be changed anytime when I figure out the better one):
10. Notting Hill (Roger Michell, 1999)
Stars: Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts, Rhys Ifans
Yeah, Hugh Grant is still the king of rom com actor
“The fame thing isn’t really real, you know? And don’t forget I’m..I’m also just a girl…standing in front of a boy…asking him to love her.”
~ Anna Scott
9. When Harry Met Sally (Rob Reiner, 1989)
Stars: Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan
It’s a delightful rom com with a different formula.
“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
~ Harry Burns
8. My Best Friend’s Wedding (P.J. Hogan,1997)
Stars: Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Rupert Everett, Cameron Diaz
When a rom com movie doesn’t always have a happy ending..
“It is not going well! This is what comes of telling the truth, or even part of it. You know, getting what you deserve is totally unfair.”
7. Leap Year (Anand Tucker, 2010)
Stars: Amy Adams, Matthew Goode
It takes Amy Adams and Ireland to make an elegant and beautiful rom com movie.
“When my 60 seconds came around I realized I had everything I ever wanted… but nothing I really needed. and I think what I need is here. and I came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well… I don’t really have plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O’Callhan and I should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal; I propose we not make plans, I propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. so what do you say, do you wanna not make plans with me?”
6. Little Manhatttan (Mark Levin, 2005)
Stars: Josh Hutcherson, Charlie Ray
The cutest one!
“Suddenly, I knew what I had to do. Love isn’t about ridiculous little words. Love is about grand gestures. Love is about airplanes pulling banners over stadiums, proposals on jumbo-trons, giant words in sky writing. Love is about going that extra mile even if it hurts, letting it all hang out there. Love is about finding courage inside of you that you didn’t even know was there.”
5. You’ve Got Mail (Nora Ephron, 1998)
Stars: Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks
Now I’m missing the chemistry between both and……. Ephron’s film of course :c
“What will NY152 say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.”
~ Kathleen Kelly
4. Sleepless in Seatle (Nora Ephron, 1993)
Stars: Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks
It’s timeless classic rom-com all the time
“Sam… It’s nice to meet you.”
3. Amélie (Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 2001)
Stars: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz,
Just one word: U N I Q U E !!
“[whispering in theater] I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old American movies.”
2. L’arnacoeur a.k.a Heartbreaker (Pascal Chaumel, 2010)
Stars: Romain Duris, Vanessa Paradise
It’s totally hilarious, funny, dynamic, different, and…..romantic.
“In a couple there are three categories of women. The happy ones, the unhappy ones who cope, and the unhappy ones who do not admit it. That last category is my stock in trade. We exist to help them. Our job: Breaking up their couples. Our goal: to open their eyes. Our method: seduction. We break their couples, never their hearts. My name is Alex Lippi …… and today, I broke my own heart.”
~ Alex Lippi
1. Flipped (Rob Reiner, 2010)
Stars: Madeline Carroll, Callan McAuliffe
Unquestionable, the best rom com I’ve ever watched. It’s definitely match for all ages.
“Somehow the silence seemed to connect us in a way like words never could.”
So, what is yours?? Let’s share here ;D
