Is there anything more delightful and life-affirming than a perfectly executed romantic comedy?
Every once in awhile, it’s nice to indulge our inner sap and just let our cynical expectations disappear as we sit back, grab a bucket of popcorn, pull up our Snuggie and pop in a cheesy feel-good (and completely unrealistic) rom-com. So here’s ten romantic comedies we recommend for those days when you just feel like falling in love.
1) The Princess Bride (1987)
Westley: This is true love – you think this happens every day?
The quintessentially perfect book to screen adaptation, this film teaches us that even death cannot stop true love… it can only delay it for a while.
With its dashing pirates, deadly sword fights, and large animatronic rodents, The Princess Bride isn’t the traditional “kissing-book” romantic comedy. Its ironic humor makes it about so much more than the central romance, simultaneously mocking and yet believing in the power of this ultimate true love between a former stable boy and would-be princess.
It’s remarkable how much difference it makes when you let a woman direct a film about women. Hustlers‘ protagonists may be strippers, but make no mistake, their only crime is stripping men of their grandest delusions.
