So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

Read More: The Romantic Comedy Is Having a Revolution — And It's Happening on TVAfter a successful theatrical release in Portugal and a positive first showing at the annual Afm Market back in November, Vision Films has now announced they will be releasing their "A Date With Miss Fortune" in theaters across the USA and Canada, as well as on DVD and VOD, this February. A romantic comedy about clashing cultures and unexpected love, "A Date with Miss Fortune" is so in the vein of films like "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" and "Meet the Parents" that it's practically a spiritual sequel. The film centers on a struggling American writer (Ryan K. Scott), who meets and falls in love with a beautiful and charming, yet superstitious and traditional Portuguese woman (Jeannette Sousa). Despite their cultural and familial differences, they try to make it work and hope that true love will prevail in the end. »
