Paste's top 17 romantic comedies of the decade

Jeremy Madina, from Paste magazine, offers his list of the 17 best romantic comedies of this decade (Be sure to click the link above for a breif synopsis and a standout quote for each movie). Though I don't consider myself much of a romantic comedy watcher, I have seen 7 out of his top 10 (but none of the last 7). How many have you seen? Do you agree with the list?

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
2. Before Sunset
3. Amelie
4. Wall-E
5. High Fidelity
6. Punch Drunk Love
7. Sideways
8. Knocked Up
9. Juno
10. About a Boy
11. Lars and the Real Girl
12. Vicky Cristina Barcelona
13. 40 Year Old Virgin
14. Bridget Jones' Diary
15. Ghost Town
16. Science of Sleep
17. Waitress


  1. Of the decade? That is one depressing list. I noticed most of the movies were in the last two years, like nothing substantial existed in 1999.

  3. I don't know how i just deleted my comment, but i did. Anyway, i wanted to make a joke, but that moment has passed. It was really lame. It was about a plot point concerning the film, "13 going on 30." Maybe i should be glad it was deleted.
