Meg Ryan or Julia Roberts? Ranking of the best romantic comedies

Frank Capra was one of the most important American comedy creators in the 1930s and 1940s

The story presented in one of his greatest hits is based on the journey of two heroes towards New York. The paths of a cynical journalist (Clark Gable) and the daughter of a millionaire (Claudette Colbert) constantly cross, although both have made it clear that they do not like each other. Over time, however the initial reluctance passes and a casual acquaintance turns into a deep feeling. The film's plot is still there, even after so many years since its premiere delights with its simplicity and warm humor.

In 1935 “Their Nights” won as many as 5 Oscars (for film of the year, direction, screenplay and two leading roles).

Queen of comedy Meg Ryan at one of her best looks. “When Harry Met Sally” tells the story of the development of the relationship between the two characters over the years.

Initially, Sally (played by Meg Ryan) doesn't like Harry (Billy Crystal). When they meet each other after a few years, it turns out that their difficult love experiences have changed their perspective on the world and relationships. Initially they establish a friendly relationship, which over time becomes fertile ground for love to blossom For good and for bad.

In 1990, the film won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Duo Julia Roberts – Richard Gere won the hearts of thousands of viewers. “Pretty Woman” is a fairy tale about Cinderella for older audiences. Gere plays the role of wealthy lawyer Edward Lewis, who is enchanted by the energy of escort girl Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts). The man offers her to spend a week with him, for which he will pay $3,000.

The girl learns the joys of luxurious life, clothes and food, although initially it is difficult for her to get used to the new situation. Ultimately, however, not everything resembles a fairy tale scenario.

For his film performance as Roberts in 1991 She received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Comedy.

What would be, if one day repeated itself endlessly? This terrible scenario was experienced by the main character of “Groundhog Day” – the bitter weather forecaster Phil Connors (Bill Murray).

When he comes to work once again to shoot material from the titular event that heralds the arrival of spring, he does not hide his dissatisfaction. To make matters worse, producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) rejects his advances. When Phil wakes up after a terrible day, it turns out that… Groundhog Day is celebrated again and the whole story begins again. He tries in every possible way to get out of the space-time loop. In the meantime he takes the opportunity to get to know all the town's inhabitants and the beautiful Rita better.

In 1994, the production won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay.

Julia Roberts for the second time! The film tells the story of… between a famous actress and the owner of a small travel bookstore (Hugh Grant). Another story from a fairy tale that seems like it shouldn't have happened… but it did!

Despite belonging to different worlds and despite all adversities in life, the characters begin to like each other and believe that they are meant to be together.

We recently wrote about “Notting Hill” in more detail, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its world premiere.

Star cast in a Christmas comedy about complicated types of love. On the screen we can see, among others: Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Keira Knightley and Colin Firth.

The story presents events in the lives of several people during Christmas time. Some are already in happy relationships, others are struggling with a wounded heart, and still others are just learning what this magical feeling really is. The film proves that love has many names, but whatever it is, it is always an important part of our lives.
