Heartfelt Romantic Comedies

From "The Wedding Planner" to "27 Dresses", Hollywood can't seem to get enough of platinum rings and white dresses. However, "The Five-Year Engagement" brings you a refreshing take on having to delay a wedding and shares the agony of waiting- with rings attached, of course. Wait no more longer for Jason Segel and Emily Blunt to say their 'I do's" (if they even do!). If humour starts to wear thin, there are always other good romantic comedies with a twist that can put you in bellows of laughter.


High Fidelity ("2000")

An adaptation of a 1995 British novel of the same name by Nick Hornby, "High Fidelity", centers on Rob Gordon (John Cusack), who struggles in trying to understand maturity and adult relationships. Cool cat Cusack displays one of his best acts as he nails the screen with each witty monologue on failed romance. The end of the film only leaves you with two things in mind and they are; One: How to wipe that smile off and Two: How to be as cool as John Cusack.


Bridesmaids ("2011")

Eat your heart out, "Hangover", and let the girls take their strut as they prove that progesterone-fueled comedy can still work. "Saturday Night Live" star Kristen Wiig takes the role of Annie, a broke and lovelorn woman of late thirties who must serve as her best friend's maid of honour. With stiletto-sharp lines and a few spew of vulgarities, the story gives a stark portrayal of a wedding – both entertaining and sickening.


The 40 Year Old Virgin ("2005")

Don't let the name hinder you from watching the honest quest of a good man in realizing his lifelong dream of getting laid because seriously, "The 40 Year Old Virgin" is more than just a degrading label. Now, if only every 40-year-old male virgin in the real world looks almost half as cute as Steve Carrell. And to think the shenanigans a 40-year-old virgin has to go through just to save himself for the right woman. Sweet? Absolutely. A little disturbed? Slightly. Memorable? Indeed. Whoever could forget the famous 'sandbag' line?


Forgetting Sarah Marshall ("2008")

Raunchy scenes and a requisite flash of nudity makes "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" appears more like a dude flick than a chick flick. However, do not let the crass antics be the downer as Jason Segel actually does pull off as the adorable, sappy schlub pretty well. And Russell Brand's fatuous Aldous adds a little extra flavour to what could have been just another story about a girl who dumps the guy for some unmemorable hunk.


Meet the Parents ("2000")

It's hard enough to be named Gaylord Focker (Ben Stiller). It's even harder when your father-in-law-to-be is Robert De Niro; or at least, someone who bears De Niro's facade. The pairing of Stiller and De Niro turns out to be a unique comic act as "Meet The Parents" blends wit, slapstick and romance, all in one flavour. It's no wonder the film has become one of American's best comedies of 2000.


I Love You, Man ("2009")

The power of bro-mance have struck the chords as "I Love You, Man" brings the perfect combination of Jason Segel and Paul Rudd as best friends for life (or probably just till the wedding, perhaps?). It's difficult not to like this comedy that explores the true meaning of male bonding in a 'rom-com' sense that can at times be both confusing and awkward.


Wedding Crashers ("2005")

Two best friends' cynical take on marriage make it a point to crash wedding receptions every weekend in getting the bridesmaids to sleep with them. After a decent frequency of successful crashes, Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) takes John (Owen Wilson) to a wedding for the daughter of the US Secretary of the Treasury. The duo makes such an excellent pair, with a series of hilarious gags bursting without fail.


50 First Dates ("2004")

Despite taking too much cheap shots at making vulgar-loving adolescents 'LOL' their guts out at many of his films, Adam Sandler has finally won the hearts of the audiences as he tries to win the heart of Lucy (Drew Barrymore) in "50 First Dates". Underneath the crude jokes, the duo shares their golden moments in scenic Oahu island, accompanied by reggae covers that makes it easy for anyone to fall for this light comedy.
