NOTE: With such a broad genre as romantic comedy there's bound to be some missing movies here. There are also many borderline cases, but for each one the deciding factor was whether the romance is the primary focus of the plot beyond any gimmicks or how the movie is perceived. If there are any movies that you think should be on this list, e-mail us at mail@boxofficemojo.com.
