Sometimes, there's just nothing better than modernized Austen – and does it get any better than seeing Colin Firth play a Darcy? While Zellweger got some flack for her less-than-perfect accent, we love this movie just as it is.
The premise is fairly uninspired (a boss-from-hell type forces her underling into a green card marriage), but the combined charms of Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds make this a fun film.
Cheesy? Yes. A must-watch? Also yes. Because who doesn't want to see a movie about an ultra-insecure teen who finds out she's the sole heir of a small European principality? Bonus: it has one of the best makeover scenes ever.
Okay, so maybe this isn't the best movie around... it does, however, feature pre-Star Trek Chris Pine as European nobility, and if that's not a selling point, I don't know what is.
It may not be the best movie in the world, but its a must-see for Jane Austen fans!
We've all been there before - and what better way to see the time old tale played out than between a fast-talking Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake?
Even though this movie plays fast and loose with the details of the legal system, it really does contain some lessons well worth learning (and no, we're not just talking about "bend and snap.")
Ewan MacGregor is adorable, Melanie Laurent is more adorable, and Cosmo the Jack Russell Terrier is most adorable of all.
Its depiction of law school might not be all that accurate, but it still has some great advice (such as bend and snap) that we could all totally benefit from.
Another Anne Hathaway mainstay that happens to feature a pretty fabulous makeover. Also notable: Meryl Streep made history with her spot-on portrayal of the magazine editor said to be based off of Anna Wintour.
It's produced by Drew Barrymore, and we all know she knows a good romantic comedy when she sees one. Features an all-star cast helmed by the ever-sunny Ginnifer Goodwin.
It's written by 'New Girl' showrunner Liz Meriwether, and it stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. Need we say more? Oh, wait, we do: TV favorites Jake Johnson and Mindy Kaling also make an appearance.
Directed by rom-com's finest (Rob Reiner), this story of first love is a lovely combination of funny, nostalgic, and sweet.
Like '10 Things I Hate About You,' here we have another great Shakespeare adaptation. In our opinion, you can't go wrong with 'Twelfth Night,' pre-crazy Amanda Bynes, and shirtless Channing Tatum.
Thoughtful romantic comedy master Woody Allen does it again with Midnight in Paris: this film has everything from a hilarious cast to some of your favorite 1920s ex-pats.
Keira Knightley as an aspiring singer-songwriter and Mark Ruffalo as a down-and-out record producer? Sign me up! (Bonus: it's also Adam Levine's film debut).
You would never guess a movie headlining with Adam Sandler could make you cry, but this one will. Buckets. Drew Barrymore is amazingly sweet as Lucy, a young woman who suffers from short-term memory loss.
This non-love story is refreshingly told out-of-order in a way that reminds us how we rewrite history when it comes to failed relationships. It features Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, who are collectively adorable.
Worth a watch based on adorability factor alone (but seriously, it's a good movie).
It almost doesn't matter that this movie is well-written, smart, and funny, because it happens to star Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone - and you can't go wrong with them.
There's a reason this flick won best original screenplay — the rapid-fire dialogue is fantastic. Baby Ellen Page and Michael Cera certainly don't hurt, either.
This romance is off-beat in just about every way imaginable, but the May-December relationship between Aubrey Plaza's Darius and Mark Duplass' Kenneth manages to avoid creepiness by adding in a healthy dose of whimsy and mystery.
A smart, self-aware coming of age story set in a 1980s theme park. Stars pre-Twilight K Stew and Jesse Eisenberg (who happens to make a very compelling romantic lead).
Starring Shailene Woodley and her Divergent co-star Miles Teller, The Spectacular Now is another great coming-of-age love story.
This awesome film is one part romance, one part Indian coming of age, and one part soccer (or rather, "football") - we could watch it a hundred times and never get tired of it.
An unconventional romantic comedy at its most unconventional: this robot love story is sweeter than you could have imagined possible. Also, you can never go wrong with Pixar!
You came for the full-frontal Jason Segel, and stayed for the hilariously paired Kristen Bell and Russell Brand. Oh, and also the Dracula puppet musical (that Segel penned himself!)
The premise of this film is just plain bonkers – and that's exactly why we love it. Jennifer Garner plays 13-in-a-30-year-old-body so well, and you can never go wrong when Mark Ruffalo plays the love interest. Also: "Thriller!"
Truly one of the best of the best – pull this one out during the Christmas season and prepare for sappy tears as you watch pretty much every single British actor ever (A.K.A. most of the cast of the 'Harry Potter' franchise).
This critically-acclaimed film features Jennifer Lawrence (who won an Oscar for the role) and Bradley Cooper. She struggles with depression, and he with bipolar disorder — and they find love along the way.
