My Favorite Romantic Comedies

You know what I love? I love a good romantic comedy. If there's a pretty girl, a cute guy and a love story that makes me laugh and cry, I'm all in. Here are my favorite romantic comedies in no particular order.

Hope Floats
Bernice: Mom, are you gonna marry Justin Matisse?
Birdee: Oh, honey, I'm not planning on getting married again for a long time.
What, you don't like Justin?
Bernice: No, it's not that. It's just that...
Birdee: What is it? You can tell me.
Bernice: I just don't want to be known as Bernice Matisse!

Jerry Maguire
Jerry: That's more than a dress. It's an Aubrey Hepburn movie.

Bridget Jones's Diary
Mark Darcy: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances,
I like you, very much. Just as you are.

The Notebook
Duke: She had come back into his life like a sudden flame, blazing and streaming into his heart. Noah stayed up all night contemplating the certain agony he knew would be his if he were to lose her twice.

Sweet Home Alabama
Jake: The only reason I ain't signing is cause you've turned into some hoity-toity Yankee bitch,
and I'd like nothing better right now than to piss you off.

You've Got Mail
Kathleen Kelly: I love daisies.
Joe Fox: You told me.
Kathleen Kelly: They're so friendly. Don't you think daisies are the friendliest flower?

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Andie: It's just... I wish I ate meat. Mary had a little lamb, little lamb.
You have to take it away before I gag.

Notting Hill
William: Whoopsidaisies!
Anna Scott: What did you say?
William: Nothing.
Anna Scott: Yes, you did.
William: No, I didn't.
Anna Scott: You said whoopsidaisies.
William: I don't think so. No one says whoopsidaisies, do they? Unless they're...
Anna Scott: There is no unless. No one has said whoopsidaisies for fifty years and even then,
it was only little girls with blonde ringlets.

Something's Gotta Give
Erica: What are you doing here, Harry?
Harry: Turns out the heart attack was easy to get over. You were something else. I finally get it.
I'm 63 years old, and I'm in love for the first time in my life.

Crazy, Stupid Love
Jacob: The war between the sexes is over.
We won the second women started doing pole dancing for exercise.

Hope Floats is my absolute favorite movie...somewhat because it shadows my life story (husband has an affair, I move on with my kids and find love very unexpectedly). My favorite quote ever is the one at the end about giving hope a chance to float up.

Sweet Home Alabama makes my heart happy (why you want to marry me for anyway? - so I can kiss you anytime i feel like it).

Notting Hill - I own this on VHS..LOL

BREI said...

Yes to all of those! I love it! And Hope Floats holds a special place because I just love Harry Connick. He's from NOLA so I have to love him.

I am right there with you on these- you may have inspired me to have a romantic comedy movie marathon watching weekend :)

Ahhhh, The Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama. I just love that in The Notebook, real love prevailed over money, and over her mama hidin' those letters. :( Shame on her! Sucks that the rich fiance got his feelings hurt. Same thing with SHA too. Bless all their hearts.

I watched Jerry Maguire a while ago for the first time in forever. I forgot how much I loved that movie.

I adore The Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama. I own both but still watch whenever they're on TV.

Bridget Jones's Diary is my jam.

RoselyC said...

I have watched How to lose a guy in ten days about ten times. It never gets old, its funny romantic love it. Crazy stupid love, The Notebook and Bridget Jones´s Diary are some of my favorites too.

Because Shanna Said So said...

Um, where is Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman and Footloose...okay, maybe they are not comedies...but my faves...along with your picks of The Notebook & How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days! :)

Venus Trapped In Mars said...

I've never even seen some of these (Hope Floats, Jerry Maguire, Bridget Jones's Diary) I need to jump on netflix ASAP!

ty said...

Crazy Stupid Love is one of my favorites. When Harry Met Sally is my alltime face :)

Unknown said...

Some of my favorites! However, An Affair to Remember and Up Close and Personal are at the top of my list!

Heather T. said...

"How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days" is one of my favorite movies ever and my absolute favorite romantic comedy. I adore every second of that movie.

I get a lot of flak because I'm in the 1% that abhors "You've Got Mail" as I am not a huge Meg Ryan fan...but I get the appeal to others.

Honorable mentions for my fave romantic comedies go to "27 Dresses" (I'm a sucker for James Marsden singing Elton John), and "Pretty Woman." Love "The Notebook" too!


Unknown said...

I could watch Sweet Home Alabama every single day. I love it!

The Notebook holds a special place in my heart though. My grandmother had Alzheimer's so it hits a little close.

Karen M. Peterson said...

I love every single one of these movies. So, so much.

Alycia Grayce (Crowley Party) said...

I love love love all of these :)! Hope Floats just makes me *sigh*

Mike said...

Before Cameron Crowe made Jerry Maguire, he did 'Say Anything', with John Cusak. I don't know if you ever saw it, but I thought it was better than Jerry Maguire.

Unknown said...

Oh my goodness! I could sit and watch these movies nonstop all weekend and be completely happy. I've seen and love all of them except the last two.

Danielle said...

SUCH good choices here! I've never seen Crazy, Stupid Love, but how can you go wrong with ANYthing Emma Stone? I have a serious girl crush on her (and her style).


Shelley said...

I STILL haven't seen Crazy Stupid Love, dangit!! I really want to! Love the rest of those!

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I feel you on the Sweet Home Alabama.

I have to say my favorite romantic movies/semi comedy are Singles (most favorite romantic movie ever), Say Anything and High Fidelity.

I am sure there are more but for me I guess I just love Cameron Crowe's directing AND John Cusack :)

Lisa @ Adventures of a Dream Catcher said...

I'm not a big chick flick person, but I did really love Bridget Jones's Diary--it was so funny.
My two sisters, on the other hand, LOVE romantic comedies. I bet they own most or all of what you listed!!

Following you now. :)


Dinah Gacon said...

Jerry Maguire is the SHIT!!! Also love some Crazy Stupid Love and how to lose a guy in 10 days....oh I could go on and on ;-)

xo Dinah @ sunshine super glam

Christina said...

So many good movies! The Notebook for sure! And Crazy Stupid Love. I need to re-watch that. I also love The Object of My Affection, The Wedding Planner, The Wedding Singer, Some Kind of Wonderful, Chasing Amy, Love Actually... Oh! And Just Friends. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I'll watch it any time it's on TV. Haha!

McGriddle Pants said...

Notting Hill as just on TV today! Loved it as usual!

Oh - and somethings gotta give... ahhhhh YES!

My all time favorite is, and always will be "Return to Me"

Unknown said...

I have not seen them all, but my favorite is When Harry Met Sally. I'm sure that lets my age show, but it's my all-time fave.
Happy Sunday,
Lulu and Daisy

Unknown said...

I watched "You've Got Mail" for the first time in years just last week - so long that I watched it on video!! Love that film. I watched "Sleepless in Seattle" too, it was that kind of day :)

So many great choices here, I still haven't seen "The Notebook"...just waiting for the right moment, I need to get a move on!
