My Favorite Vday Movies


I am not a romantic but many of my friends are. I just can't sit through a sappy love story, especially if it has a sad ending. But I do have a heart. Here are my favorite romantic comedies of all time:
  1. "What's Up, Doc?" 1972 (Barbara Streisand and Ryan O'Neal - I liked the follow up too, "The Main Event" 1979)
  2. "French Kiss" 1995 (I love Kevin Kline! and Meg Ryan is in it too)
  3. "Housesitter" 1992 (more faves: Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn)
  4. Still of Cameron Diaz and Jude Law in The Holiday"The Holiday" 2006 (I love Cameron Diaz and Jude Law!)
  5. "You've Got Mail" 1998 (How does Meg Ryan end up with all the good parts!)
  6. "Pretty Woman" 1990 (no comment necessary)
  7. "Failure to Launch" 2006 (Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker)
  8. "The Wedding Singer" 1998 (some may not like Adam Sandler, but this was a good one & Drew Barrymore is awesome, "50 First Dates" 2004 was good too)
  9. "Bridget Jones Diary" 2001 (Renee Zellweger and unassuming Colin Firth)
  10. "Working Girl" 1988 ("Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn't make me Madonna. Never will.")
Honorable Mentions:
"When Harry Met Sally" 1989
"Two Weeks Notice" 2002
"Clueless" 1995
"Doc Hollywood" 1991
"Roxanne" 1987
"As Good As It Gets" 1997
"How to Marry a Millionaire" 1953
And almost any B&W movie with Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers or Clark Gable...
