The 70 Best Romantic Comedies of All Time

A cynical Pittsburgh weatherman (Bill Murray) and his producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) are sent to Penxutony, Pennsylvania, on a dead-end assignment: reporting on soil dials rat day. Boy, is this a dead end? Mind you, Murray is stuck there, not just in one snowstorm, but in a continuous loop where no matter what he does—including suicide—he wakes up in the same hotel on the same day. At first, the weatherman is predictably frustrating, but eventually, he uses all the information he gets in the same day of his life over and over again to improve his own life and the lives of those around him, and eventually his personality change leaves Rita impressed. It’s fun to watch Bill Murray, it’s fun to watch Bill Murray struggle, it’s fun to watch Bill Murray stuck in a deadlock, chasing Andie MacDowell and wrestling with moral philosophy at the same time.

How to watch: Stream on Amazon, Apple TV or YouTube.

Tom Hanks is responsible for some of’80s hits—Splash and Big

– but in Nora Ephron’s The film is about a widower’s son who calls into a radio show to try to find him a new wife, who solidifies his elf as America’s favorite man. Meg Ryan is his rival for the title in 019, Playing a hapless betrothed Baltimore Sun reporter wrote Hanks’ character on a whim, having him on top of the Empire State Building with her Meet up (see:

Things to Remember on Valentine’s Day ). Totally contrived but utterly charming, this fast, goofy, funny movie is superfood for anyone who believes in second chances and true love.
