Popcorn worthy Romantic Comedy of 2019

image

In a way, we’ve evolved past the romantic comedy. It will take multiple forms—escape movie or girl’s night out; coming of age stories and political comedies. basically, with the reinvention of the rom com in recent years, the foundations have modified and we’re sitting in a new place paying attention to the list of the below 10 movies worth watching. Hell, even Daenerys Targaryen is moving into the sport, even though its sans one or two of dragons. however do not expect the romantic comedies that you simply recognize from year’s past. Nope, the options that fall into the umbrella of romantic comedy take the genre to a brand new place, and it isn’t unhealthy, guys.

The below ten movies square measure the roundup of the simplest of this year, however that is by no means that the tip of the list. With one or two a lot of months of 2019 left, there is still an opportunity for a late entry (which is why we’ve gone ahead and thrown in Last Christmas here as a result of, come on). there is a little bit of one thing for everyone—even those that refuse to travel to the cinema (i.e, Netflix).

Booksmart

Real talk: Booksmart is the best romantic comedy of the year. Not only is the friendship between Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever intoxicatingly charming, but the film features that awkward fumbling that comes along with being infatuated with a high school love. On the eve of their high school graduation, two academic superstars and best friends realize they should have worked less and played more. Determined not to fall short of their peers, the girls try to cram four years of fun into one night.

Long Shot

Nothing is more unlikely than finding out your old babysitter is Secretary of State and also planning a run for the United States presidency, but hey, movies aren’t always about being realistic. What makes Long Shot work so well is the strangely palpable chemistry between Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. He’s still the stoner movie guy, but damn if Seth Rogen doesn’t know his way around a rom com.

Based on a book of the same name, Cate Blanchett takes on the lighter role of a woman who is defined by her role as a wife and mother until she decides that she wants to spice up her life in the same way she experienced years ago, whens she was a preeminent architect. A loving mom becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passions after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Her leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump-starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.

Someone Great

Starring Gina Rodriguez, Netflix has established a reputation for producing romantic comedies that make you feel good. Are they particularly going to nab any major awards? No. But damn if it’s not fun to watch while you polish off a bottle of wine. After getting the job she always hoped for, Jenny (Rodriguez) has to leave New York and her boyfriend isn’t coming with her. What results is a girls-night-out trip, featuring Britney Snow, Questlove, and RuPaul.

Always Be My Maybe

Everyone has an old flame that floats into their minds ever so often, but rarely do you get the chance to consider rekindling that relationship. In Always Be My Maybe, Ali Wong and Randall Park unite as one of the most charming couples of the year. Wong plays Sasha, a successful chef, while March (Park) is still jamming out with his hip-hop rock band from high school. That doesn’t particularly get in the way though when the two reunite…after 15 years!

Murder Mystery

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in a romantic comedy-mystery? Game on. The two play an NYC-based couple who get invited on the worst yacht ever when a murder breaks out. What results is the fanciest game of clue in modern memory, very reminiscent of the books Aniston’s character reads. But spoiler: a little bit of death can actually help heal a stale relationship especially when you’re wrongly framed.

Yesterday

Yesterday was one of those sleeper summer films that got a bit lost in the shuffle, but it doesn’t mean that it’s any less charming or not worth your time. When a global power outage ends, no one in the world can remember The Beatles or any of their music—except one guy who then makes it his mission to communicate their work to the world. But when his mission launches him into stardom, he’s pushed to decide if love or fame is more important. (Listen to the song, my man. Love is all you need.)

What Men Want

Out earlier this year, Taraji P. Henson’s gender-swapped version of What Women Want may not go into the rom com canon, but she gives it her all. After getting knocked out, Henson’s character wakes up with the ability to read men’s minds. That’s not always the gift you think it is though. A bit of comedy and romance makes it one of the easiest watches of 2019.

Isn’t it Romantic

Isn’t it Romantic attempted to skewer the hallmarks of romantic comedies while folding in a story of its own. When a woman gets knocked out (this is a recurring thing, y’all), she wakes up to find that she’s in her greatest nightmare: she’s trapped in a rom com of her own. The good news is that by the end of the story, she’s come to realize that the greatest love story of her life is the journey that she takes to love herself. Do you get it?

Last Christmas

Still a ways from being out, Last Christmas is the Christmas rom com you didn’t know you needed this year. With Daenerys Targaryen in her rear view, Emilia Clarke stars along with Henry Golding as an elf at a Christmas shop who is disenchanted with the holiday season. Under the thumb of her delightfully campy mother (Emma Thompson) and Christmas shop boss (Michelle Yeoh), Clarke is tasked with finding a reason to appreciate the season and find love in her life again.
