One of our favorite pastimes is watching romantic comedies. Romantic comedies are after all, all about love. As we head into fall, we thought what a better way to celebrate the leaves changing, the chance to pull out our favorite scarfs and boots, and all things pumpkin with the celebration of love? We thought it was a great idea to so we’ve compiled a list of five of the best romantic comedies for you to enjoy while the prettiest leaves fall right outside your window.
The Wedding Date
The Wedding Date is a classic. A hilariously, witty, at times dark, but romantic classic, The Wedding Date tells the story of Kat (Debra Messing), a single woman, who hires Nick (Dermot Mulroney), a paid escort, to attend her sister’s (Amy Adams) wedding. Hilarity ensues and they fall for each other. With swoon-worthy lines like “I think I’d miss you even if we never met” and one-liners like, “You’re my half-sister, but I whole love you,” you’re in for a treat of laughter, sighs, a bit of drama, and a happy ending.
Never Been Kissed
Never Been Kissed is the perfect comfort movie. Is stars one of the queens of romantic comedy, Drew Barrymore, as Josie Geller, the youngest copy editor at the Chicago Sun Times picked to go undercover on assignment as a high school student at her old high school. The problem is, Josie wasn’t popular in high school. The cool kids made fun of her constantly, going as far as tricking her into thinking that the popular guy, Billy, wanted to take her to prom, only to roll up to her house and throw eggs at her. Still, Josie gets her redo and finds love along the way. What’s better than that?
Charlie’s Angels 1 & 2
Charlie’s Angels stars Drew Barrymore as Dylan Sanders, Cameron Diaz as Natalie Cook, and Lucy Liu as Alex Monday. Each of these women are Hollywood starlets in their own right, but teaming them up for two of the best romantic comedies of all time was magical in and of itself. If you’re reading this and thinking, “How are these romantic comedies?” allow me to explain. In One and Two, we have Dylan Sanders falling for the wrong (bad) guys while Alex Monday and Natalie Cook have stable significant others of their own, but the real love story is between the three woman. No, they aren’t romantically linked to each other, but the love for each other is strong and important.
While You Were Sleeping
While You Were Sleeping stars the other queen of romantic comedies, Sandra Bullock. She stars as Lucy Eleanor Moderatz, a lonely transit worker who pulls her crush Peter (Peter Gallagher) out of the way of an oncoming train. He ends up in a coma and she ends up not correcting his family when they assume that Lucy is his fiancée. With eyebrows like Peter Gallagher’s, who could blame her, right? Things get super complicated when she starts to fall for his brother Jack. You have to watch it to learn the rest!
Sweet Home Alabama
Sweet Home Alabama follows the story of New York Fashion Designer Melanie, played by Resse Witherspoon. Melanie is engaged to New York’s most eligible bachelor, but she has a secret of her own… she’s still married. She got married when she was in high school and sets off back to Alabama to get Jack, the man she married, to divorce her once and for all. However, Jack has other plans, and before she can see it coming, she starts to believe in those plans, too.
