Enough-Said

45 Best Romantic Comedies of All Time

Nothing caps a romantic Valentine’s Day like watching glamorous people fall in love — often while trading witty barbs. And if you find yourself dateless, don’t despair: the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Hugh Grant, and Meg Ryan make for good company. With that in mind, we’ve got the perfect cinematic Cupid’s arrow: RT’s Best Romantic Comedies!

Like love itself, compiling our list was a little complicated. We utilized a weighted system that factors in both Tomatometer and number of reviews, and each movie needed 20 reviews to qualify. Enough talk: dim the lights, pop the bubbly, and get cozy with our compendium of the best reviewed romantic comedies of all time!

#45
Adjusted Score: 83.47%
Critics Consensus: While You Were Sleeping is built wholly from familiar ingredients, but assembled with such skill -- and with such a charming performance from Sandra Bullock -- that it gives formula a good name.
Synopsis: This offbeat romantic comedy has some rather dark underpinnings that add, rather than detract from the fun. It is the... [More]

#44
#44
Adjusted Score: 83.811%
Critics Consensus: It never lives up to the first part of its title, but Crazy, Stupid, Love's unabashed sweetness -- and its terrifically talented cast -- more than make up for its flaws.
Synopsis: At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream-good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his... [More]
Directed By: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa

#43

Clueless (1995)
81%

#42
Adjusted Score: 84.55%
Critics Consensus: A funny and clever reshaping of Emma, Clueless offers a soft satire that pokes as much fun at teen films as it does at the Beverly Hills glitterati.

  • Crockett

    I’m glad to see some of my favorites in this list, including “Roman Holiday.”

  • Jason Blackman

    say anything… how is this not on the list?

  • Otto T

    I swear that if It Happened One Night is not on the list shit is going to get real.

  • Strider

    WTH??? Where is Say Anything? it had a 100% on the tomatometer up until about 2 years ago when a couple “new” critics ruined the perfect score.

  • Rooby Doo

    So glad to see What’s Up, Doc on this list. IMHO, it’s the greatest screwball comedy since Hollywood’s golden age ended (Grand Budapest Hotel is close though).

  • Guest

    Enough Said at #12 ?? seriously??. -_-

    Silver Linings Playbook and THE PHILADELPHIA STORY are my faves.

  • I disagree with the order, and films are missing (people have already mentioned Say Anything). I have seen all of these and a few would not be on my list at all. But as lists go, and one dominated by popularity rather than quality, it is a good list.

  • Sirena Loveridge

    Gotta Have Say Anything or it’s not a real list!!! I just saw a movie that should make this list in the future. THE DOG WEDDING, it’s really sweet

  • Dezzie

    Where the heck was Sleepless in Seattle?!? Did I miss it??

  • thiago

    Where’s As Good as it Gets? It’s a fantastic romantic comedy, and won two Academy Awards for acting in recent years (something really rare to happens with comedy movies), and has a good tomatometer – 86 per cent -, and i am upset, they forgot THIS film, but put Enough Said and Treinwreck, which is not that great.
