For many, a romantic comedy and a tub of ice cream are Saturday night staples. For others, rom-coms are a seasonal pleasure during this month of love. Whatever your romantic appetite, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a rom-com must have a heroine.
One of our favorite queens of the rom-com scene is the lovely Reese Witherspoon. She’s charmed us as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, dazzled us as June in Walk the Line, and, most recently, had us chasing Cooper in Hot Pursuit.
Let Reese show you both the sweet and bitter sides of love with this list of five of her classics. Easily add them all to your queue at once!
While discussing our favorite romantic comedies, it quickly became clear that there was a generational divide about the classics. Jaws dropped all around the office as our young millennial colleagues admitted that they’d never seen go-to films like You've Got Mail or Moonstruck.
Though you may have been running around the playground at the time, the ‘80s and ‘90s were a time when directors like the late Nora Ephron made the world fall in love again through the on-screen romances of Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Strong women like Julia Roberts and Andie MacDowell fended off the charming Hugh Grant in several rom-coms by writer Richard Curtis.
And so, dear millennial friends, we culled through hundreds of titles to create this list of quintessential to quirky romances; add them all with a single click.
