When pressed, not unlike ham, to pick my favorite film genre, I would have to choose romantic comedies. Laughter combined with love is a hard combo to beat in any category, if you ask me. That said, the RomCom world has more than its share of stinkeroos, which makes the good ones all the more endearing. Now onto the list. Maestro!
The modern masterwork of the genre.
When Harry Met Sally
No wagon wheel coffee table, this.
While You Were Sleeping
Sandra Bullock charms.
The Philadelphia Story
Hepburn, Grant, Stewart. You'd be an unsavory fool to ask for more.
Bringing Up Baby
Brilliant. No dinosaur bones about it.
Wins with a whisper.
Kissing Jessica Stein
Surprisingly satisfying, even though the ending was lame.
A golden as Hawn's hair. As loopy as Chevy's grin.
Albert Brooks at his best.
His Girl Friday
Wins for most words per minute. Banter so remarkable it should be bronzed.
