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?
