Before this cuffing season starts, make sure to watch these 18 romcoms and set your standards for your Tinder date astronomically high. Call out of work this weekend or skip some hours at the library and let yourself fall in love with these timeless romantic comedies that will make you want to find that special someone. Some will make you cry, some will make you laugh, but in the end, you'll be happy that you spent countless hours on some cinematic masterpieces.
1. "50 First Dates"Giphy
To start off our list, who doesn't love this Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore classic? Imagine having someone love you so much that everyday they make sure you get to fall in love with them all over again. Definitely #goals for this cuffing season.
2. "The Ugly Truth"Giphy
Same Katherine Hiegl, same.
3. "Letters to Juliet"Giphy
This is the first movie on this list that will make you cry. There's something about finding love in Italy that just makes everyone want to find their Romeo. Get the tissue box ready and that pint of half baked because this movie will definitely give you all the feels.
4. "The Proposal"Giphy
Don't all fairy tales start with a blackmail proposal to avoid deportation? This will definitely be in your top 3 movies off this list because a shirtless Ryan Reynolds always makes the top 3 of any list.
5. "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"Giphy
Sometimes we are cocky and think that we can make anyone fall in love with us. Sometimes we are cocky that we can drive someone away from us. Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson show us that two people can still fall in love despite having different agendas.
6. "Love Actually"Giphy
The perfect movie to remind yourself that everyone is out there this holiday season finding love and you're alone. But somewhere amongst the chaos and intertwined stories of all the characters, we can still find love.
7. "The Notebook"Giphy
Why do you do this to us Nicholas Sparks? Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are the perfect on screen couple. Ever. This might be another movie that requires a box of tissues and Ben and Jerry's finest.
8. "When in Rome"Giphy
Despite getting hurt every time, Kristen Bell ends up with Josh Duhamel and that's all that's important.
9. "Bridget Jones's Diary"Giphy
We're all waiting for our Mr. Darcy. To watch this movie you'll have to be a fan of British accents because only after attempting to watch this 5 times was I able to (finally) watch it all the way through. If you love it make sure to watch "Bridget Jones's Baby" to see what happens with Mr. Darcy... enter McDreamy!
10. "27 Dresses"Giphy
Shoutout to Katherine Hiegl for making this list again and bringing another classic to this list. It is possible to find love even if your younger sister steals your dream man, cuts up your mom's wedding dress, and moves in with you.
11. "Forgetting Sarah Marshall"Giphy
Out of all the romcoms on this list, this one takes home the prize for best cast. You'll want to buy the first ticket to Hawaii and
hook up fall in love with a stranger that's also trying to get over their ex.
12. "Mamma Mia"Giphy
Another movie in our top 3. Nothing but smiles and singing as the best musical becomes a movie. Make sure you have a Spotify premium subscription because after this movie you'll want to download ABBA's whole album.
13. "Bride Wars"Giphy
Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are the best friend duo we all want to be, except when it comes to having our wedding the same day as our BFF. Sabotage brings out the worst in us, so naturally, it makes sense that one wedding is doomed.
14. "You Again"Giphy
Three generations of animosity all boiling down to one wedding. See it for Betty White our comedy hero.
15. "Crazy Stupid Love"Giphy
Another amazing cast coming together to make a romcom favorite. Some of us were here for a shirtless Ryan Gosling, others were here for Steve Carrell. Forever waiting for a man with Ryan's body and Steve's personality...
16. "Friends With Benefits"Giphy
Watch the movie but update your FWB this cuffing season so that you can enjoy all the fun couples things like pumpkin picking, bringing someone to Thanksgiving dinner so that your family with stop harassing you about your biological clock ticking, and build a gingerbread house with.
17. "No Strings Attached"Giphy
And finally Ashton Kutcher blesses our screens with his presence. *Reread number 16 as to why you should have strings attached*
18. "Just Go With It"Giphy
We started with Adam Sandler in Hawaii, and we're going to end with Adam Sandler in Hawaii.
Some honorable mentions that almost made the list: "The Wedding Planner," "Wedding Crashers," "Marley and Me," "Bridesmaids," "500 Days of Summer," and anything with Owen Wilson.
