A List of the Best Romantic Comedies of the Past Decade

It is not always easy for guys to sit through romantic comedies. A large portion of men consider this genre of movies to be pretty much unwatchable, and often are doing a favor to their significant other by sitting through it. But this does not always have to be the case. While many of these films are certainly catered to the female demographic, there are some good ones out there that can be watched and enjoyed by anybody.

This article will discuss some of the best romantic comedies from the past 10 years.

One movie that falls under the romantic comedy genre, but surely is anything but, is Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Starring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, this movie tackles a very interesting approach to the subject of breaking up, and is incredibly enjoyable.

If you are a fan of British comedian Ricky Gervais, then Ghost Town is worth checking out. If you have no idea who that is, then it is still worth seeing. This movie takes place in New York City and is a dry, yet humorous watch.

It goes without saying that The 40 Year Old Virgin should be on this list. Steve Carrell stars in his breakout role as a virgin, who is, as the title would suggest, 40 years old. Directed by the great Judd Apatow, this film is filled with laughs.

Any fan of Woody Allen films should check out Vicky Christina Barcelona. Woody Allen has always been exceptional at showcasing the cities in which his movies take place, and Vicky Christina Barcelona shows the beauty of the Spanish city brilliantly. It is truly amazing the range that Javier Bardem has showed recently.

In just a few months, he went from playing one of the most terrifying villains in cinematic history (Anton Sigur in the multiple Academy Award Winning film No Country For Old Men) to playing a seductive Spanish romantic in this film.

Finally, a great film to watch, either by yourself or with a significant other, is Juno. This movie is directed by Diablo Cody and stars Ellen Page in her breakout role as well as the awkwardly funny Michael Cera. This film is anything but cheesy, and every line from this movie is well written.

Hopefully you found one or more films on this list that you will consider next time you want to watch a romantic comedy.
