Valentine’s Day is the holiday of chocolate, date night, heart shaped candy… and romantic comedies. The world is filled with romcoms of every shape and size, but here are the top ten best romcoms ever made.

  1. My Big Fat Greek Wedding

With a memorable cast of characters and hilarious dialogue, this is everything you could possibly want in a romcom. The storyline follows Toula Portokalos as struggles to balance her wacky, 100% Greek family and her new, definitely not Greek boyfriend.

  1. The Proposal

Andrew Paxton hates his boss, Margaret Tate, more than anyone else in the world, so he’s not exactly thrilled when she ropes him into getting engaged to avoid being deported when her visa expires.

  1. Lala Land

Created in 2016, this work of art has all the optimism, bright costumes and catchy songs of a classic musical about the love story of a struggling actress and a jazz musician aspiring to open his own club.

  1. The Princess Bride

The fact that there are still people in this world that haven’t seen this movie is inconceivable. It has the quotable one-liners, the horrible villain, a sword master in search of revenge, and a hero on a quest for true love. What more could someone ask for?

  1. 50 First Dates

Imagine the having the perfect first date…and the next day the person you were with has absolutely no idea who you are. Henry Roth finds himself in that exact situation when he falls in love with a girl named Lucy Whitmore who was in a car accident a year ago that destroyed her long-term memory.  

  1. Ten Things I Hate About You

Bianca Stratford’s overly protective father creates a rule that she’s not allowed to date until her older sister, Kat, dates someone too, and Kat is notorious for hating absolutely everyone, especially guys. Solution? Hire someone to woo Kat. Things get interesting from there.

  1. How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days

Andie Anderson is writing an article about how to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, inspired by all the things women shouldn’t do in a relationship. Little does she know that the guy she chooses for her experiment, Benjamin Barry, has a bet on the exact opposite- he has to make his next relationship last ten days.

  1. Pride and Prejudice

It’s hate at first sight when Elizabeth Bennet meets judgmental, uptight Fitzwilliam Darcy in the adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic love story, but it’s not long before that all starts to change.  

  1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s 

Paul Varjak, a struggling writer, falls in love with his neighbor, eccentric and slightly crazy Holly Golightly who combats the “mean reds” with trips to Tiffany’s.

  1. Sixteen Candles

Sweet Sixteens are an important occasion, but Sam’s family completely forgets about her sixteenth birthday because they’re focused on her sister, who is getting married the next day. Throw in a misplaced confession of love and two pairs of grandparents, and you’ve got a perfect Valentine’s Day movie.
