Ah - I guess this is my guilty pleasure of the movies on this list, and a not-so-mature kind of movietaste...
The story/plot is awful, but there's some scenes that makes this rememberable (including the bus- and the laundry-scenes).

Kind of cute, the story revolves around a man and his little daughter more than romance, but Liv Tyler saves the day with cutiness. I don't know why Jennifer Lopez is credited for this movie, she's there for just 5 minutes or so.

A fun norwegian movie with hilarious gags and situations. The ending scene is one of the cutest ever seen...

This is the scene where the guy tries to finish the relationship (the furniture is a metaphore):

Businessman falls in love with a woman which pretends to be someone else - a familiar plot that works great in this movie. To bad the ending isn't as polished as some of the other movies in this list. :(

I really DON'T like Mark Ruffalo, he's a mumbeling actor, but he works somehow in this movie. Not great, but OK. Reese Witherspoon is cute as always.
The story is a original one, a guy falls in love with a ghost or kind of a coma-spirit I guess.

Revenge leads to love... Meg Ryan is the queen of romantic comedies, the story is cute, funny and thrilling.
One of my favourites from my teenage-years.

A book editor is forced to marry her male assistant in order to stay in the country. When they travel to Alaska to meet his family, the new couple has to fake their way through a surprise wedding thrown by his parents. Sandra Bullock is as cute as she was in Speed. :)

Romantic comedy meets christmas movie. Two women borrows each others houses - to get away from a man destroying their lifes. Jude Law's character has a secret that makes this movie very special - watch it if you don't already have!

The love of her life dies - and begins to write letters and messages to her telling her to move on with her life, every hint and clue signed with P.S. I love you. I don't actually like Hillary Swank, but this movie is romantic - so romantic... :)

Probably the most sci-fi-ish of the movies in this list. A gentleman from the 18th century travels through time and ends up in New York in the present - and meets the woman of his dreams - Meg Ryan (queen of romantic comedies... :p).

French film at it's best - good fx, lovely characters and a funny story - companied by a sweet romance. What more could you ask for?
Notice the colours green and red in every scene. :)

Hugh Grant (king of romantic comedies) in a extraordinary "get-stuck-in-your-head"-music-comedy. Pop! goes my heart!

Businessman falls in love with a prostitute, and they have to pretend she's not for everyone else - Maid in Manhattan-kind of twist...
I guess this is the greatest romantic comedy of the early 90's.

Like Serendipity, this is the kind of romantic movie where the lead characters is in relationsships already, and then meet their man/woman of their dreams... Cute flashback to the early years of internet, and of course; Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan...

So many love stories, so little time - this movie could go on and on... I just love the characters, the stories, the music, the gags...the best romantic comedy ever?

Ah, romantic comedies (why do they call it comedies - they're not always funny?) deserves a top 20-list I guess...so here it is, my favourite romantic movies of romantic movies from 1990 - 2010, the golden era of romantic comedies.

(They don't make that kind of quality any more... :( )
