10 Man-Friendly Romantic Comedies That Women Love

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I thought I’d begin a series of posts on date ideas, and watching a romantic movie – cuddled up together at home on the couch or in bed, perhaps sharing a bowl of popcorn or some chocolate treats – is a great way to enjoy each other’s company and share your love. It is relatively inexpensive to set up a decent home theatre system these days that can make you feel like you’re at the movies, without the associated annoyances like people talking or getting in your view, babies crying, food rustling, and so on.

For the majority of guys, the thought of sitting through two hours of a soppy tear-jerker may be nausea-inducing, no matter who the company is! We come to the rescue here with this list of 10 man-friendly romantic comedies that women love to watch. These 10 movies straddle the line between romance and comedy that’ll leave both parties happy. For some romantic comedies that portray relationships in a more realistic way, check out the end of our post on The Natural Drift Of Relationships – Why Some Relationships Don’t Last.

  1. I think there’s some notable misses here: Mallrats, Clerks 2, Sliding Doors, Zombieland, Juno, 10 Things I Hate About You, 16 Candles and Easy A all leap to mind fairly quickly.

    • Thanks Adam. 10 Things I Hate About You and Sliding Doors would squeeze into the Honourable Mentions, maybe even the Top 10. I haven’t seen Clerks 2 (or Clerks 1 assuming it’s a sequel), Mallrats (I vaguely remember a young Shannen Doherty stars in it?), 16 Candles or Easy A. No movie with zombies in it could ever be described as a romance film (well, not for the girls I’ve dated). I didn’t find Juno romantic or funny, just a bit awkward, like Napoleon Dynamite.
