NKPR’s Best Romantic Comedies of All Time!

Posted on

Around the NKPR office, we love to talk about love! Whether it’s the breakups and makeups of our favourite Hollywood stars, the ups and downs of our own love lives, or the latest and greatest in romantic comedies… love is a hot-topic for us!

Not that we ever need an excuse to put on a cheesy, hopelessly romantic movie on a Sunday afternoon… but with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to round up NKPR staffers’ best romantic comedies of all time!

Whether you’re single or attached, admit we all enjoy a good ol’ fashioned rom-com to inspire and remind us that love truly is worth celebrating.

Read on for our all-time favourites…

Natasha:
You’ve Got Mail with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks!! My favourite quote is: “The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something but I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.” So romantic!

You've Got Mail Meg Ryan Romantic Comedy

Lauren:
Clueless… because Cher Horowitz is EVERYTHING. (It ends in romance so I’m classifying it as a rom-com!) The best Cher quote is “LUCY!!! Where is my white collarless shirt from Fred Segal? It’s my most capable looking outfit!!” And my favourite scene is the one below… I actually LOVE her outfit in this scene, with the long sheer collar shirt & cropped sweater.

Clueless Cher Horowitz Romantic Comedy

Rebecca:
One of my favourite romantic comedies is The Holiday. Jude Law for the win!

The Holiday Jude Law Cameron Diaz Romantic Comedy

Tory:
My favourite rom-com is definitely Notting Hill. Between Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts, the smile-factor is NEXT level. My favourite scene is when they are racing around London trying to get to Julia’s character’s film junket.

Notting Hill Car Scene Hugh Grant Romantic Comedy

Katie:
My all-time favourite romantic comedy is How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. The best scene is when Ben takes Andy to meet his parents and you witness them realize they are actually falling for each other during the shower scene as Chantal Kreviazuk’s “Feels Like Home” plays in the background. Classic!!! ❤️

Nathan:
I Love you, Man! So it’s a little more com than rom, but who doesn’t love a hilarious bromance? My favourite scene: Slappin’ da bass. My favourite quote: “Get home safe Pistol.” “You got it, Jobin.

I Love You Man Paul Rudd Jason Segel Romantic Comedy

Yulia:
Although it’s one of those bleak comedies, Lost in Translation has a great romance at its heart. Favourite quote: Bob: “Can you keep a secret? I’m trying to organize a prison break. I’m looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?

Lost In Translation Scarlett Johansson Bill Murray Romantic Comedy

Nicole M.:
Amélie! ❤️

Amanda:
Princess Bride! Love the humour, period wardrobe and great romantic love story that melts my heart every time! Favorite scene is a classic moment in 80’s movie history when Wesley is tossed down the hill by the Princess who has not yet been aware of his identity. He is then suddenly discovered as her one true love when his words float up to her as he tumbles downward, “As… you… wish.” Really cool romantic scene. 🙂

The Princess Bride Robin Wright Romantic Comedy

Aisosa:
My all-time favourite romantic comedy is He’s Just Not That Into You.  So many key messages that girlfriends are either too naïve or caring to break to their girls – but sometimes, “If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind” because “busy is another word for a**hole.” 🙂

He's Just Not That Into You Ginnifer Goodwin Justin Long Romantic Comedy

Cait:
When Harry Met Sally! Classic, but I love everything about it. Especially how the characters and their relationships change during the movie (case-in-point Sally’s take on Casablanca), but their most annoying – and uniquely loveable – qualities stay the same (cue final scene, with chocolate sauce on the side). The vignettes of couples throughout the movie are maybe my fave parts, but, again, I love the whole thing from the song ‘let’s call the whole thing off’ to the faceless man in Sally’s dreams.

When Harry Met Sally Meg Ryan Billy Crystal Romantic Comedy

Daria:
Does Forgetting Sarah Marshall count?

Nicole A:
Love Actually – It’s just so real. Bill Nighy is a genius. I watch it 10x every Christmas season!

Erin:
I love P.S. I Love You because it makes me ugly cry and Gerard Butler is hot.

PS I Love You Hilary Swank Gerard Butler Romantic Comedy

Cassie:
Serendipity! 🙂 I love the moment that she gets the bill with his name and number on it. There’s that overwhelming happiness you get when you realize they’re going to be together!

Serendipity Kate Beckinsale John Cusack Romantic Comedy

Kristin: 
The 40-Year Old Virgin! Judd Apatow. Steve Carrell. Catherine Keener. Paul Rudd! Just about as much awkwardness as you’d expect based on the title… but actually a really earnest love story. Laugh out loud funny.

The 40 Year Old Virgin Paul Rudd Romantic Comedy

Bunmi:
Top Five was written and directed by Chris Rock. He also stars in the film with Rosario Dawson and Gabrielle Union. It’s a Woody Allen-esque film that showcases Chris as comedian Andre Allen, the romantic lead, and Rosario as a New York Times writer Chelsea Brown; she is the mega cool love interest for Andre and love rival to Gabrielle Union’s Erica Long, a gorgeous reality mega-star who is about to get married to Andre. It is a smart, breezy film that can be a bit raunchy for some people’s tastes, but I like a bit of raunch! 🙂

Olena:
My favourite romantic comedy is Bridget Jones’ Diary because I am basically her.

It was impossible to miss the show-stopping metallics and shimmering sparkles trend worn by fashion icons Julianne Moore in Givenchy Custom CoutureReese Witherspoon in Calvin Klein Collection and Emma Stone in Lanvin.

Jaws dropped at the perfect winter-whites worn by Rosamund Pike in Vera Wang, Kiera Knightley in Chanel and Sienna Miller in Miu Miu!

One of our favourite red carpet trends was the super-sexy, deep V seen on Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad, and both Jessica Chastain and Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace. What can we say… the deep V stole the show!
