Date night doesn’t need to mean a formulaic chick-flick that’s going to have one-half of the couple squirming and checking baseball updates on his phone. Every year, the Romantic Comedy genre continues to produce some hilarious and original odes to love for all tastes.
Our list ranges in date from 1934’s It Happened One Night to 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook, covering every decade in between. We only included films where the romance was central to the plot and that we felt were truly funny—whether the dark comedy of Harold and Maude or the slapstick of The Princess Bride. That means that some classic romances like An Affair To Remember and some gut-busting comedies like Bridesmaids got left off (but you should watch them both anyway).
Whether you’re watching with that special someone or just watching while dreaming about him or her, these are the 50 Best Romantic Comedies of All Time.
