Romantic Comedies-My Favorites

A few weeks ago, I wrote about romantic comedies and how much of a huge fan I am of them. After I signed off, I tried to write down some of my favorites romantic comedy films. As I was making the list, I thought I would limit it to just the top ten but I found as I started jotting down my faves, that there are much, much more than ten and I couldn’t narrow it down. It would be like choosing your favorite among your own children. I also discovered that I watch way too much T.V. but that’s the topic of another blog.

So here is the list of my top 60, which you’ll see is a mix of the new and old, the classics and contemporary, the musicals and the straight dialogue. The films that really capture my imagination are the ones with the couple sparing-duking it out, a hate to love relationship. I can’t help it-I love a good war of words. Hey, I’m a writer-did you expect anything differently?

They are listed in no particular order. Please feel free to add your own to the list as I am sure I missed a few good ones. Enjoy!
