The Budget Savvy Bride

A good romantic comedy is one that captures you wholly while you watch it and leaves you thinking about the meaning of love for hours after it’s over.

In a romantic comedy (past, present, or future), the pursuit of love is a guarantee and we generally know how it ends, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy getting there.

Stacker looked at all movies with at least 10,000 user votes on IMDb that were categorized as both “romance” and “comedy” and ranked the top 50 according to IMDb user ratings, with ties broken by votes.

From classics like “Some Like It Hot” to modern spins such as “About Time,” we’re confident this is a list you will be able to draw from, no matter the state of your love life.
