Continuing our 10/10 celebration, here we are with Hollywood’s 10 best romantic comedies of the past 10 years. While science fiction and home theater theater continue to be the wonder they are for cinematic message and sparkle; no one can deny the fact that romantic comedies also have an important part to entertain us. Hollywood each year produces a plethora of films which also includes romantic comedies that we enjoy at our leisure. Over the past decade, we’ve come across some iconic actors playing great roles and showcasing them with their talent.
Whether it’s Ryan Gosling or Jennifer Lawrence, they’ve managed to rekindle our interest in movies we could watch with a coffee or a pot of popcorn. Or just hang out with your other half on the sofa in front of the ten. Or for the new normal, bring your screen to whatever couch you want. At Koimoi, we list the top 10 picks for the Hollywood rom-com genre of the past 10 years:
SILVER LINING PLAYBOOK (2012)
It’s about two halves striving to be one. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in this romantic comedy about two strangers who meet and fix each other. After his stint in the medical institution, Cooper tries to get his life back on track, he meets another messed up human in Lawrence and the ride begins.
LA LA LAND (2016)
How to talk about Hollywood romantic comedies and not to mention its warm musical that can fit into any romance subsection. Starring the prettiest Ryan Gosling and the adorable why Emma Stone, La La Land directed by Damien Chazelle tells the story of a pianist and an actor falling in love. Careers follow one another and life passes.
CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE. (2011)
Since we’ve already taken a trip with Ryan and Emma, let’s mention this gem as well. With Steve Carell and Julianne Moore with the two, Crazy, Stupid, Love. He’s about a middle-aged man who learns the tricks of the young life from a friend he finds in a bar after his wife files for divorce.
ENOUGH SAID (2013)
Enough Said is for all souls who find a hook in their late 40s. When a divorced woman (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) falls in love with a man of unique charm, she learns that he is her friend’s ex-husband. Together they explore life, love and give us cute humor with this Hollywood release. It is also the last film of James Gandolfini before his death, and one of his best.
ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE (2019)
If there was a checklist to qualify for a romantic comedy, Always Be My Maybe would pass with 10 out of 10 ticks. The chemistry of Randall Park and Ali Wong is a stage thief in it. To also feature Keanu Reeves in an unusual part and have him do things people used to the John Wick universe can’t even imagine is a treat.
NO ROPES ATTACHED (2011)
Hollywood stars Aston Kutcher and Natalie Portman in 2011 showed off the brilliant way to deal with breakups. Adam after a breakup enters a strict “Friends With Benefits” relationship with Eva. But when love enters the equation, things get worse.
THE BIG SICK (2017)
Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani’s writing in The Big Sick turns out to be the real winner. A very unconventional tale starring Kumail and Zoe Kazana about the desire for love and the humor that’s too strong in the movie that has the greatest revisit value.
TOP FIVE (2014)
It’s a Chris Rock show and he owns it. Written, directed and played by Rick, the film also stars Rosario Dawson. Chris plays Andre who is an actor and gave an interview to a journalist he falls in love with. Hollywood’s Top Five has a lot to offer and it’s hard to sum it up in a few words.
MAN UP (2015)
It’s a blind date gone wrong. Man Up stars Lake Bell and Simon Pegg. The film follows a 34-year-old single woman (Bell), misunderstood as a stranger’s blind date, finds love in the most unexpected situation. It’s Bell, a 40-year-old divorced woman.
Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu and Henry Golding conveniently skip the part where Hollywood romantic comedies usually begin, falling in love. Families here are impressed to lead the wedding on D-Day. It’s fun and all kinds of excitement.
