It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl!
The official topic this week is a love freebie because YAY Valentine’s Day and all things hearts and chocolate!!!! I’ve decided to highlight some of my favorite couples from TV and film formats, particularly from romantic comedies.
In no particular order…
10 Best On-Screen Rom-Com Couples
Shane and Oliver from the Signed, Sealed, Delivered Hallmark movie series
#Sholiver fans have been waiting FOREVER for them to be a “couple”, but it’s been worth the relationship growth and character building. Ah!
Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox from You’ve Got Mail (1998)
These two are a modern classic couple. From arguing over Pride and Prejudice to friendship over coffee, I love the journey of their relationship.
Lucy and Jack from While You Were Sleeping (1995)
The humor in this story is just so realistic. My favorite aspect of this story is how Lucy learns the dream she idealized is not the reality she really wants.
Ellen and Nicholas Arden from Move Over, Darling (1963)
We can’t talk about romantic comedies without mentioning THIS classic. 1. It manages plenty of romantic tension even between a married couple. 2. James Garner. 3. The hilarity of the derailed “honeymoon”.
Kate and Leopold from Kate & Leopold (2001)
A time-travel romance with humor and spunk, Meg and Hugh have the best chemistry.
Anna and Declan from Leap Year (2010)
Ireland. Sheep. Tradition. Road trip. An adorable Amy Adams. Plus a little dry humor and Matthew Goode with an IRISH accent. Need I say more?
Ellen and Roy from The Irresistible Blueberry Farm (2016) Hallmark
While I’ve only seen this once, I vividly remember how endearing and laugh-out-loud funny it was throughout. Especially that meet-cute and subsequent fallout. 🙂
Jack and Gwendolyn AND Cecily and Algy from The Importance of Being Earnest (2002)
You knew I’d squeeze a period drama onto this list, right? 😉 This play-turned-cinematic fun piece just gets funnier upon every rewatch. Mistaken identity and a town-country separation prove hilarious and fateful for this delightful cast.
Toula and Ian from My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Culture shock and a vibrant family make this film one-of-a-kind. And, the quotable lines are ENDLESS. “Put some Windex on it.”
That’s it for today! Did you participate in this week’s TTT? What are YOU favorite rom-coms?
Such a fun post! I love Move Over Darling with Doris Day and James Garner!
Thank you! Yes, that has been a favorite for a long time (along with more Doris Day films, of course!). I’m glad you’re a fellow fan! 🙂
I vote for Ian and Toula too!! Nice twist on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post. I love it!
Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:
Thank you for that! Toula’s family makes that movie so fun. Thanks for dropping by today!
You’ve Got Mail was awesome, and I liked Kate and Leopold too. I totally forgot about Greek Wedding! That was a fun movie…
So many movies, so little time! 🙂 You’ve Got Mail is a forever favorite.
Ah I loved Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in Leap Year (though surprisingly that’s the only rom-com from your list I’ve seen and I’m a massive rom-com fan!).
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2018/02/13/top-ten-tuesday-146/
Now, hopefully, you have more to discover and watch soon! How fun! And your post is a neat twist on the theme ;).
Definitely! Thank you 🙂
What a great post! I love Leap Year! I think it is a highly under appreciated movie. You’ve Got Mail and My Big Fat Greek Wedding are great as well. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.
I love this list and second many of your choices. I’m most happy to see Shane and Oliver listed. I heart them so much. And yes to Doris Day and James Garner, how can you not love those two together.
Thank you, thank you!!! Yes, Shane and Oliver are some of my favorites. (Obviously.) And yes, Doris and James make such a great couple! Have you seen their other movie, The Thrill of It All? It’s actually older and equally as fun.
Yes I have and I’m getting ready to watch it again soon, so I can clear it off my DVR. It’s a lot of fun.
I am so happy to see Shane and Oliver to make this list also. It has been such a long journey for them but they are finally getting their act together especially with the movie on Sunday “The Road Not Taken.”
Roade Less Traveled. I have Robert Frost on the brain
YES! I loved the new movie and how their relationship was more steady!!! (And haha, I knew what you meant!) I like the reference to Robert Frost in the title. At least, I think that’s what is intended?! Thanks for stopping by to comment, Victoria!

Haven’t forgotten Reese Witherspoon’s awful fake English accent from Earnest.
AWWW!! I spy so many favorites. From Cecily and Algy to Anna and Declan, this post makes me smile. Of course, I also like Lucy and Jack, and it’s a pretty good bet, I’ll like anyone I meet on Hallmark Channel. 🙂
I loved How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Groundhog Day (not exactly a rom-com?).
