A good rom-com never fails to hit the spot. These are the top 50 romantic comedies of all time


43. My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997)

The best rom-coms of all time 16

Julia Roberts reinforced her credentials as one of the biggest movie stars on the planet by steering My Best Friend’s Wedding to almost $300 million at the box office in another effortlessly commanding performance.

Two childhood friends made a pact to get married if they were still single by the ripe old age of… 28. Unfortunately, Dermot Mulroney’s Michael is set to get married four days before the milestone.

Naturally, Roberts’ Jules decides she’s in love with him, and sets out to try and stop the impending nuptials, before things get increasingly complex. Of course, being a rom-com, things ultimately resolve themselves in the end and everyone gets a happy ending.
