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. And if you find yourself dateless, don’t despair: the likes of Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Woody Allen, and Meg Ryan make for good company.
However, determining what made the cut wasn’t without its complications (kinda like love itself). We utilized a weighted system that factors in both Tomatometer and number of reviews, and each movie needed 30 reviews to qualify. 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!
