Ah, l’amour. It’s what makes the world go round. And according to the Beatles, it’s all you need. But sometimes life doesn’t work out as planned.

These romantic comedies show us that sometimes we find love in the unlikeliest of places, sometimes when we’re not even looking for it.

1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall


Love hurts. Breakups suck. But like anything else, you have to pick yourself up and dust yourself off.

The setup in this movie is one we’ve seen before, but Jason Segel is just so darned cute and boy-next-door charming, we can’t help but hope the guy finally gets the girl he deserves.

2. Hitch


Too busy helping nerdy, shy guys get the beautiful gal, he doesn’t notice love has slapped him in the face. Or rather, has swollen his face to epic proportions.

The combination of suave Will Smith’s character, Hitch, and adorably funny man Kevin James as Albert Brennamen, makes this a feel good heartfelt comedy where everyone wins in the end.

3. 10 Things I Hate About You


Guy gets paid to woo feminist hard ass and surprise!

He actually likes her! Loosely based on Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew,” our hearts were stolen as Heath Ledger’s Patrick provided his rendition of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”

After that, we were rooting for Kat to let this so called bad boy into her heart.

4. I Love You, Man


Not your typical boy-loves-girl story, or even the other way around. “I Love You, Man” helped coin the term “bromance,” which is what this movie is essentially about.

It’s hard making friends in adulthood, even tougher if you’re a dude. But guys have feelings too and our hearts melted when they finally christened each other as BFFs.

5. The 40 Year-Old Virgin


Your first time is awkward enough as a young adult.

Having that experience as a middle aging man provides a goofy, hilarious mess of a movie, which also includes sincere, tender moments.

And we can never say “French toast” the same way, thanks to Leslie Mann’s car scene.

6. Knocked Up


With his sweet dance moves, Seth Rogen was lucky to land a girl like Katherine Heigl.

And what better way to lock that wifey down than to get her knocked up? Okay, so that wasn’t the plan, but it all worked out in the end.

“Knocked Up” showed us that despite some little road bumps, it’s all worth the morning sickness, birthing lessons, and baby books.

7. When Harry Met Sally


The diner scene alone puts this movie on the list. Can women and men just be friends?

Harry and Sally have a surprising chemistry between them and we see well before they do what happens. The best romances have a foundation built on friendship.

8. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days


Kate Hudson is darling, Matthew McConaughey only gets better with age.

“How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days” might be a tad predictable but we laugh and smile nonetheless.

And Princess Sophia, Hudson’s nickname for one of McConaughey’s, uh, parts, made us double over in hilarity.

9. Clueless


We remember the 90’s fondly whenever we think of “Clueless.” Cher is rich, she’s popular, and she has a killer wardrobe.

On top of that, she excels in matchmaking but seems to neglect her own relationships. In the end, Cher finds out what true friendship is, finds love, and looks fabulous the whole time doing so.

10. Silver Linings Playbook


Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are a winning twosome and sparks fly between them.

They’re dysfunctional, irrational, and delightful all at the same time. The clincher is the sweet dance competition that they totally own.
