Thankfully, Valentine’s Day only comes once a year, but for those that appreciate, here’s 30 of the best romantic comedies (rom-com’s) that you can check out if you haven’t already watched them on this fine day. If you’re a little more sardonic about the day, you’ll appreciate Shane McLendon’s movie choices that will surely make you glad to be single…or wish you were. Our gossip girl Ricki Reay came up with her list of the most romantic movies so if you want something to make you cry, here’s your list. We give you plenty of choices.

If art imitates life, do the love stories we see on the big screen reflect reality? Throw in some comedy for effect, and you might come close to the sometimes messy, often poignant, but always heart felt genre that is the romantic comedy.

Commonly referred to as rom-coms, these films make you laugh, cry and keep faith that your soulmate is out there somewhere. To identify the best rom-coms to enjoy on Valentine’s Day — or really any time of year — our friends at Pretty Famous looked for romantic comedies with over 50,000 IMDb votes. We then ranked the films by Smart Rating from high to low. Our Smart Rating (out of 100) is a weighted average of the following:

  • Rotten Tomatoes‘ Tomatometer
  • Rotten Tomatoes’ Audience Score
  • IMDb Rating
  • Metacritic’s Metascore
  • Data provider Gracenote’s Proprietary Rating, which is based on ratings from top critics at Variety, Newsday, Chicago Tribune, Rotten Tomatoes, and Metacritic.
  • Inflation-adjusted cumulative box office gross

Whether you’re watching a rom-com to celebrate Valentine’s Day or any time of year, this list has your must-sees.

Note: Ratings in the Smart Rating are all given equal weight, whereas box office gross has a lesser weight.

#30. My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Smart Rating: 83.70
Release Year: 2002

For Toula, marrying a non-Greek man won’t be as easy as it might seem, since she needs to contend with the overbearing — and often hilarious — protests of her very Greek family without driving him away in the process.
