"Bridget Jones's Diary" - Most quotable line #1: “I like you very much. Just as you are.”Most quotable line #2: “Christ, is that blue soup?”Sometimes first impressions are straight up terrible, especially if they occur during a sad Christmas party thrown by your parents.
But it was Love, Actually that really showed how debased the form had become, with its implausible plots and insulting depictions of women – and men, but mainly women. A similar drop in quality can be seen in Nora Ephron’s romcoms, from the peerless When Harry Met Sally to the stalker-y Sleepless in Seattle to the even more stalker-y You’ve Got Mail.
"Sleepless in Seattle" - Most quotable line(s): “When a man is a widower why do we say he was widowed? Why don't we say he was widowered?”It started with a phone call to a late-night radio host and, suddenly, we were introduced to the ultimate rom-com dream team!

"Annie Hall" - Most quotable line: “That sex was the most fun I’ve ever had without laughing.”Diane Keaton's titular character wears the most gorgeous outfits throughout this underdog-meets-the-beautiful-girl love story. Woody Allen portrays the uniquely observational (or super paranoid, depending on how you see it), Alvy Singer.

"Never Been Kissed" - Most quotable line: “I'm not Josie Grossie anymore!”In order to truly enjoy Never Been Kissed, you have to ignore the fact that for most of the film, Josie Gellar falls for a man who thinks she's just another teenager in his high school English class.

Serendipity. Dear rom-com skeptic: People like you blindly lump all romantic comedies into the category of ‘lame,’ no matter how brilliant they might be, and once upon a time I used to rage at people like you.
