The Proposal (2009)
Rom-Coms are incomplete without Sandra Bullock who gave some of the major hits of her career in this genre with films like Love Potion No.9, While you were sleeping. She starred alongside the charismatic Ryan Reynolds.
Sandra plays the role of a badass publishing executive who is facing deportation to her native country America.

Betty White is the ultimate comedy queen playing the role of a grandmother. She is simply hilarious.
Bridget Jones’ Diary
Renée Zellwegger was the ultimate star of this movie. She played Bridget Jones, a spinster. She gained 30-something pounds for her role which was initially the buzz. Bridget is a British journalist who is betrayed by her boss Daniel Cleaver played by the debonair Hugh Grant. Mark Darcy is her true love played by Colin First. This is indeed one of the best rom-com shows of all time and is a great favourite for all the relatable characters , comedy and the love it gives.
10 Things I hate about you(1999)
Teenage high school romances are the best . They are pure romance with fun, comedy and total love. The nineties saw a lot of Shakespearean remakes. But, 10 Things I hate about you was just superb. The newly arrived in the industry Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles duo leave a mark.
Set against the backdrop of a Seattle high school, the story is about Julia Stiles being a tough cookie who enjoys Thai food, feminist prose and angry girl music of Indie rock persuasion . Heath Ledger makes efforts to woo her and eventually she falls for him.
To all the boys I’ve loved before (2018)
This Netflix blockbuster is just swoonworthy. The series is based on Jenny Han’s novel of the same name. Lara Jean Covey is an Asian American. She writes letters to the boys she has ever loved. But, never intends on sending them. However, somebody sends those letters. And now Lara Jean is a wreck.
Things happen and she now has to fake date her 11 grade crush Peter Cavinsky. Their fake romance turns out to get real. To all the boys I’ve loved before is a great story that tells the story of Asian Americans and brings them to the forefront. Also, Peter Cavinsky is a darling just from the start and not a charismatic stupid popular guy who has his brains in his knees.
When Harry met Sally (1989)
The list of rom-coms would be so incomplete without the mention of the quintessential romantic comedy When Harry met Sally. This 1989 movie is a magnum opus which has all the typical settings of a romantic comedy such as the bookstore encounter and the New Year Eve’s admission of love and yes, the attraction theory. When Harry met Sally is the tale of two long time acquaintances who finally realise that they are the right person for each other. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan outshine themselves.

Julia Roberts is dazzling in her role and obviously pretty!!! Richard Gere is also able to leave a mark.
Notting Hill (1999)
Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant duo is the ultimate rom com dream. This pair is dazzling, astounding and loving in all means.
