Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
This impossibly enjoyable sequel is a pure blast of feel-good movie magic.
As Good As It Gets
Jack Nicholson is on cantankerous form in James L Brooks’ 1997 rom-com. The film follows misanthropic writer Melvin Udall, who, after his homosexual neighbour is brutally beaten, is entrusted with the care of their dog – and, on top of everything, finds himself falling for Carol (Helen Hunt), a single mother and waitress with whom he has a difficult relationship. Both stars took home acting awards at the Oscars.
Sleepless in Seattle
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are on charming form in this endearing rom-com from queen of the genre Nora Ephron.
There’s undeniable chemistry between John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John – in fact, it’s electrifying – in the chart-topping, dancefloor-filling, feelgood musical romance between two star-crossed lovers at a 1950s California high school.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
A young New York socialite takes interest in a man who moves into her apartment building downstairs in this lovely adaptation of Truman Capote’s novel. Audrey Hepburn is a delight.
A day out on the town with Audrey Hepburn? William Wyler’s romantic comedy, which stars Gregory Peck as a reporter who crosses paths with a runaway princess, is a delightful, charming ride.
Meet the Parents
Comedy starring Ben Stiller as the doomed groom who can’t do anything right when he meets his fiancee’s intimidating dad, played by Robert De Niro.
Will Smith is on charming form in this comedy about a ‘date doctor’ coaching nerds in the art of seduction – but he’s not so smooth when he meets a savvy journo played by Eva Mendes.
Harold Ramis’ comedy about a weatherman who finds himself reliving the same day over and over again is funny, sweet, profound and features a superb central turn from Bill Murray. A verifiable classic.
Just Go With It
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston team up for this surprisingly entertaining comedy about two workmates who end up pretending to be former spouses.
Friends with Benefits
Easy A director Will Gluck helms Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in this cracking romantic comedy.
50 First Dates
Adam Sandler finds his perfect match in Drew Barrymore. Everything is wonderful until the next day, when he discovers she’s forgotten everything about him. It’s a cute enough premise for a rom-com, but Sandler and Barrymore’s chemistry is the real star here.

“I’ll never let go, Jack!”
About Time is an honest, provocative and accomplished work that deserves to be given a shot, even if you don’t like Love Actually.
DescriptionSam and Molly love each other, but their romance is short-lived when Sam is killed by a thug. Unable to tell Molly that her life is in danger, Sam’s spirit takes help of a psychic in this sweet and genuinely entertaining romantic fantasy.
“Show me the money!”
Bridget Jones’s Diary
A charming cast and witty script make this romantic comedy a winning tale of a woman turning the page and writing her own story.
Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are irresistible in this peak Richard Curtis rom-com.
When famed photographer Christina Eames unexpectedly dies, she leaves her estranged daughter Mae Morton (Issa Rae) hurt, angry and full of questions. When a photograph tucked away in a safe-deposit box is found, Mae finds herself on a journey delving into her mother’s early life and ignites a powerful, unexpected romance with a rising-star journalist, Michael Block (LaKeith Stanfield).
For all its cliches, it’s hard to resist Richard Curtis going full Richard Curtis in this rambling, uneven seasonal anthology.
A funny cast and a witty script make this candy-coloured Jane Austen adaptation a bubbly, energetic watch.
Perfectly updating Jane Austen for 1990s Beverly Hills, Clueless is an evergreen adaptation.
Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen and Julia Robert are painfully raw in this spiky drama about the intertwining, romantic entanglements of two unhappy couples, based on Patrick Marber’s 1997 stage play of the same name. Accomplished, classy, caustic viewing.
This earnest ensemble rom-com is full of charming sincerity.
