"From slapstick to satire and subtle innuendo. From the grotesque to the carefully mannered. From madcap anarchy to the darkly deadpan. Film comedy comes in a wide range of forms.

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we at RT are aware you’ve probably already thought of picking up flowers and candy for that special someone. However, if you’re looking for the perfect cinematic Cupid’s arrow, we’re here to help, in the form of RT’s Best Romantic Comedies! Nothing caps a romantic Valentine’s Day like watching glamorous couples fall in love -- often while trading witty barbs.

Given the fact there’s hardly a lack of romance and comedy in the movies, we decided to winnow our candidates down to lighthearted films that primarily focus on love affairs. So dim the lights, pop the bubbly, and get cozy with our compendium of the best reviewed romantic comedies of all time!

So this year BBC Culture decided to get serious about comedy. We asked 253 film critics – 118 women and 135 men – from 52 countries and six continents a simple: “What do you think are the 10 best comedies of all time?” Films from any country made since cinema was invented were eligible, and BBC Culture did nothing to define in advance what a comedy is; we left that to each of the critics to decide. As always, we urged the experts to go with their heart and pick personal favourites, films that are part of their lives, not just the ones that meet some ideal of greatness.
