Valentine's day is quickly approaching and whether or not you're looking forward to it the world is about to fill with red hearts and expensive chocolates, so might as well embrace it. As a self-proclaimed romantic comedy aficionado, I've developed a definitive list of the best romcoms ever made. Here is what you should be watching every night until the big day is here. Enjoy!
1. She's the Man
I figured it was only necessary to start off with the best. She's the man is an undeniable classic. Amanda Bynes is hilarious and Channing Tatum is hotter than ever.
2. A Cinderella Story
Two words: Austin Ames.
3. Footloose (the remake)
Look, I'll say it: the remake was better than the original. Ren McCormack's Boston accent is admittedly terrible, but Miles Teller is adorable, and Julianne Hough is electric.
4. 27 Dresses
This one's for every girl who has ever felt like they're always the bridesmaid and never the bride. Also, Bennie and the Jets.
5. Crazy, Stupid Love
The cast, the intermingled storylines, just everything about this movie is *chef's kiss.*
6. She's All That
If he falls in love with you after dating you as a dare, it's still romantic that he loves you right? Anyway, young Freddy Prinze Jr. and young Paul Walker make this a must-watch.
7. 10 Things I Hate About You
You're lying if you say you've never wanted a boy who hates everyone to love you. Also, the soccer field scene. And, the paintball date. I could keep going, but I'll stop here.
8. Made of Honor
Think "My Best Friend's Wedding," but in Scotland, with a way better plotline, and Patrick Dempsey.
9. Leap Year
Falling in love with an Irish pub owner after traveling around Ireland with him? Yeah, sign me up.
10. Life as We Know it
There's something so good about a "meant to be" enemies to lovers story. This one just happens to also include a really cute little girl.
11. The Holiday
Imagine a boy writing a song for you composed of "only the good notes." SWOON. Also, Jude Law in glasses.
12. Princess Diaries 2
Have I mentioned my thing for an enemies to lovers plot?
13. Easy A
This movie has everything - Penn Badgley, John Hughes references, and even an awesome musical number.
14. To All The Boys I've Loved Before (Triple Feature)
Three years in the making, this is a much-watched on the big day! We've been waiting so long to learn how Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky's story will end, and now it's finally here!
Honorable Mentions (for nights you're wanting a double feature):
Sweet Home Alabama
Letters to Juliet
