. Everyone loves Groundhog Day, right? Ive always found it curious that many people dont regard it primarily as a romance. I guess its understandable given how funny it is and its fantastical premise, but much of this story is about Bill Murrays character learning how to truly love someone other than himself. He develops such a profound longing over time for Andie MacDowells character because hes given unlimited time to fully appreciate what makes her unique, which transforms his baser lusts into genuine love. Ultimately, he works toward making her life better in the one day hes allotted with a selflessness that comes from a lack of expectations of reward.
It Happened One Night
. Valentines Day is a great opportunity to revisit some film classics from the Golden Age of Hollywood, and they dont come any more classic than It Happened One Night. In many ways the quintessential American romantic comedy to predate the implementation of the Production Code in 1934, it tells the story of a young socialite runaway Claudette Colbert who tags along with a streetwise reporter Clark Gable. It goes pretty much exactly as youd expect they both learn from each others very different skill set, and opposites absolutely attract. Its famous for its hitchhiking scene, where the wily Colbert successfully flags down a car simply by showing a little leg, completely emasculating Gable. His reaction is priceless.
. Wes Andersons 2012 film is described as an eccentric pubescent love story, but its really not quite as eccentric as it would have you believe. Through just about any form of measurement, its probably Andersons most simple and sincere film, a genuinely heartfelt story about a couple of weird kids and their confusing adolescent romance. The directors films are so often about exceptional children growing into adults who fail to achieve their promise, but here they never have that chance. Its an optimistic story that entertains the possibility that maybe love really is all we need. Call it sappy, but the innocence is refreshing. Also, Billy Murray is there perhaps his presence is the biggest deciding factor to getting on this list?
. If you feel compelled to go full indie and cant stand love stories with tidy, happy endings, Drinking Buddies should be your pick. Its an unconventional romance in that most of the characters never commit to the relationships or infidelities we expect them to. Instead, its about temptation, the lies we tell ourselves in a relationship and the boundaries between friendship and romantic feelings. A scion of but not full fledged entry into the mumblecore genre, its largely improvised dialog lends an air of reality to the conversations, but those expecting typical genre conventions may find themselves perplexed when you dont get anything resembling the wedding bells ending of the typical romantic comedy.
. A comedy drama starring Keri Russell as a pie baking waitress probably doesnt sound like something your boyfriend would seek out, but Waitress is much more than meets the eye. A fun, quirky movie thats as emotionally affecting as it is entertaining, it plays like a more feminine Coen Brothers flick. Russell is wonderful as Jenna, a Southerner waitress who finds empowerment and freedom from her overbearing, emotionally abusive husband first in an affair and then in a new source of love. This film, unlike some of the others, is not so much about romantic love as it is about finding love for self. It was an impressive achievement for writer/director Adrienne Shelly, who was tragically murdered three months before its debut.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
. I love Edgar Wrights whole Cornetto trilogy of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End, but for my money this is easily his most impressive film to date. For all the appreciation that has grown for it since its poor box office showing, Scott Pilgrim still hasnt truly gotten its due. Most of what makes it great in addition to the stellar writing is Wrights incredibly creative visual aesthetic, seamlessly blending influences from comics, video games and pop art into a whole that just works, against all odds. The romance aspect is a bit more young adult and inconsequential, but youre unlikely to notice in a film so vibrant and full of life.
His Girl Friday
. If youve ever wondered what the big deal is about women and Cary Grant, then youve probably never seen His Girl Friday. One of the absolute classic screwball comedies of Hollywoods Golden Age, it was a definitive role for Grant as a hard boiled newspaper editor. Its actually fairly progressive, or at least tries to be, as beautiful star Rosalind Russell plays her reporter role vivaciously and plans to leave the scheming Grant behind her before getting caught up in the news story of the decade. The pair have a comic chemistry that has rarely been seen in the near 75 years since, and the movie moves so fast that you hardly have time to breathe. Every joke ever made about fast talking 1940s newspapermen had its source in this movie.
. It would be a crime to leave foreign romances off this list entirely. The Indian Monsoon Wedding is a little hard to describe, but suffice to say it plays out a little bit like Father of the Bride meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding, except, you know
The Brothers Bloom
. If The Brothers Bloom came out in 2014, wed probably be looking at Wes Anderson like success for the film, but way back in 2008, a lot fewer people were familiar with director Rian Johnson. Sure, there were devoted fans of his neo noir Brick, but it wasnt until the runaway success of 2012s Looper that he was put on the map as an ascendant Hollywood director. This earlier tale of con men brothers was a great star vehicle for Adrian Brody and Mark Ruffalo in particular, whose performance then hinted at the comic potential he would later display as Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Rachel Weisz is especially good as the bizarre love interest who gets brought along on a continent spanning adventure. The complicated plot is a little wonky, but the romance is sweetly endearing and Johnson gives it a fun, globe trotting panache.
Stranger than Fiction
. Like Jim Carrey in The Truman Show, Will Ferrell deserved far more popular acclaim for his dramatic turn in Stranger than Fiction. Its excellent magical realism premise would have been enough to make for a promising film, but what Ferrell does here is wondrous he crafts a character who is uniquely humble, reserved and average. Roger Ebert described the film as being about quiet, sweet, worthy people, and that is quite accurate. Its a film that has an unexpected reserve of dignity, and its central romance between Ferrell and Maggie Gyllenhaal is seemingly mismatched but all the more genuine for it. Their first kiss is one of my favorite romantic film moments totally vulnerable and adorable.
. Now, as he assumes the mantle of The Tonight Show, it may be a good time to finally give Jimmy Fallon his due although his film career has more than its fair share of bad movies Taxi, anyone?, he put together an oddly endearing performance in this underrated, underseen flick. The premise makes you think it will simply be about Fallons character learning that love is more important than his die hard Boston Red Sox obsession, but it ends up having a slightly deeper perspective on issues of vulnerability and abandonment. Fallon is undeniably charming, both funny and sympathetic. Drew Barrymore on the other hand is rather ditzy as the female lead, but compared to some of these other films Fever Pitch is fun, popcorn entertainment. And its a great way to get a sports fan to watch a romantic comedy.
Safety Not Guaranteed
. Alright, were definitely on the fringes of romance now, but theres still a sweet love story at the center of this down to earth comedy with a sci fi premise. The relationship between Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass builds in unconventional and unexpected ways, and the audience is held in suspense throughout because they arent sure if either characters stated feelings are a ruse. The nature of their emotions is very much dependent upon the unknown mental state of Duplass is he crazy for thinking he can travel through time or simply an eccentric dreamer? The conclusion strikes exactly the right balance between possible payoffs.
Singin in the Rain
. If Singin in the Rain isnt the greatest of the classic American film musicals, then its at least so close as to make no difference. Sweet, earnest and genial, I personally find it a lot more entertaining than the likes of other romances such as West Side Story or Camelot. The characters are fun, and the music is incredibly infectious. If youve never seen it, theres no way youll avoid finding yourself singing Make Em Laugh, Moses Supposes, Good Morning or the title track in the days that follow. The movie is like a well worn pair of jeans that fits perfectly.
The Princess Bride
. Buttercup thinks that she will never see her beloved Westley again after his ship is captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts. When Westley returns, the couple must conquer an evil prince, a dangerous Fire Swamp and even death before they can finally be reunited.

Gnomeo And Juliet
. In this animated rendition of Shakespeares classic, Gnomeo and Juliet are garden gnomes from feuding clans. The star crossed duo will charm parents and kids alike with their over the top adventures as they fumble towards a happy ending.
. Giselle, a bubbly princess to be, is banished to New York Citys Times Square by a wicked queen. Fairytale romance gets a modern makeover when Giselle discovers that her true love is not a handsome prince but a jaded divorce lawyer.
. This animated musical tells the tale of Ted, a 12 year old boy who sets out in search of a living tree to please his crush Audrey. When he meets the Once ler, Ted learns why all the trees are gone and makes it his mission to plant the last remaining seed.
. Based on the Nicholas Sparks tearjerker, the movie follows Allie and Noahs long romance, starting as a teenage summer fling. Although Noah is from the wrong side of the tracks, Allie falls helplessly in love, but the summer comes to an end. Allie is engaged to another man when the two reunite, but all the same feelings are still there. Played by former real life couple Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, their chemistry brings the romance to life on screen.
The Lucky One
. Also based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, this story begins with Logan, played by Zac Efron, finding a picture of a girl while he is serving in Iraq.

Taylor Schilling plays Beth, who is unaware of the handsome strangers history and is swept off her feet.
. The movie, which chronicles multiple relationships, is set at Christmastime in London. Love is in the air as some couples are beginning and others are ending. The charmingly British cast of characters includes Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson.

She gets her wish, and is transported to present day, where she has a high powered job in New York City, rich friends, and a professional hockey player for a boyfriend. The problem is that Jenna is still living in the mind of her 13 year old self and does not understand her adult life. She seeks refuge in her childhood next door neighbor and best friend, Mark Ruffalo, who has to break it to Jenna gently that they stopped talking on her 13th birthday.
