The I Am Geek Emergency Romantic Comedy List

Happy Valentine’s Day Geeklings! I know this is kind of a made-up holiday designed to make those of us not in relationships feel kind of crappy about life, and for that I’m sorry. Just know that we here at I Am Geek love you to pieces. We truly do!

But with it being Valentine’s Day and all we thought we hit you with some romantic suggestions. So whether you have a hot date tonight with a special certain someone or you’re just spending the night at home with you, I Am Geek wants to give you the hook up on the best romantic comedies to snuggle up to.

Now, these are some of my favorite romantic comedies, not necessarily the best ones. Just ones that I so happen to enjoy. Either way, pour yourself or selves a glass of wine, dim the lights, get some chocolate and saddle up for some romantic comedy bliss.

  • The Devil Wears Prada (my personal favorite)
  • Easy A (it makes me happy)
  • The 40 Year Old Virgin (top five movie of all time for me)
  • When Harry Met Sally (a classic, have what she’s having)
  • 10 Things I Hate About You (I dare you not to smile when Heath Ledger sings. Dare. You.)
  • Clueless (get your Cher on or roll with the homies… your choice)
  • 13 Going On 30 (adorable)
  • Superbad (come on, it sort of works. Boop)
  • The Wedding Singer (duh)
  • Crazy, Stupid, Love (I secretly love this movie. Not so secret anymore)
  • Pretty Woman (if you’re feeling uninspired that is)
  • Hitch (cracks me up every time)
  • Bridesmaids (you owe it to yourself)
  • Knocked Up (this one’s pretty sweet at heart)
  • Sleepless In Seattle (another classic)
  • The Notebook (if you just want to cry all night, that’s up to you)
  • The Princess Bride (as you wish)

  1. Your first three are definitely not rom coms. A case could be made for 40 but that is a very loose interpretation. Superbad is not a romantic comedy even with the boop. Bridesmaids I would not classify as if so then Wedding Crashers is and I would not classify as such. Knocked Up not a rom com. The Notebook ain’t a comedy unless your sick and twisted like myself.

    Maybe we just classify them differently. These are movies I would say are both good and terrible and terribly good:

    He’s Just Not That Into You
    American President
    (Guess I like good Presidents?)
    Groundhog Day
    Big Sick
    Sixteen Candles
    Five Year Engagement
    Bull Durham


  2. See all of these have romantic pursuits though. Devil Prada May be a loose interpretation but Easy A is a love story, 40 Year Old a love story both with main characters pursuing interests w obstacles.

    Knocked Up most certainly is but it’s a twist. The whole pregnancy is the obstacle because they were already together. Bridesmaids it’s the pursuit of the Irish guy with Hamm being the fool and the wedding being the obstacle.

    The Notebook… that was a brain fart


  3. Our interpretation is clearly different. For lack of a better term Easy A is a chick flick before a rom com. Knocked Up, Bridesmaids and 40 have love stories true as in they need somewhere to go with the film but it’s all about the jokes on that IMO
