Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “Valentine’s Day”
“Valentine’s Day” is one of the best romantic comedies of the year. It is both sweet and bittersweet, a comedy that weaves several romantic stories together around the work of an over-the-top romantic Ashton Kutcher, as Reed Bennett. This is a genuine movie with heart and plenty of good laughs.
Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “Date Night”
I never expected “Date Night” to be a romantic comedy. I was just looking for a good comedy and figured I couldn’t go wrong with a movie that paired Steve Carell with Tina Fey. “Date Night” has it all: action, drama, comedy, and, yes, romance. It is highly comedic, but the story involves the endearing romance of a married couple. Anyone who has been married for several years realizes that married life is itself a romantic comedy, but “Date Night” drives home the importance of romance for a married couple with kids, and it is a delightfully funny movie.
Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “Killers”
“Killers” may not have received rave reviews from critics, but I’m here to give it my own review. Despite the ominous sounding title “Killers” is a warm, funny romantic comedy that pairs Ashton Kutcher with Katherine Heigl. This is another romantic comedy with plenty of action paired with comedy and romance.
Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “The Bounty Hunter”
Jennifer Anniston fans will especially enjoy “The Bounty Hunter.” Gerard Butler plays a bounty hunter who gets his dream job. He has been given instructions to find and bring in his ex-wife. The plot thickens when Milo (Gerard Butler) has to protect his ex from criminals she is investigating as a reporter. “The Bounty Hunter” is fun, sassy, and, of course, sparks ignite when Jennifer Anniston and Gerard Butler are united on screen.
Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “When in Rome”
I didn’t have high expectations for “When in Rome,” but found myself pleasantly surprised by the romantic comedy in which a young, professional from New York finds her dream man at her sister’s wedding in Rome. She is disillusioned when she discovers that having taken coins from Rome’s famous Fountain of Love causes those who tossed the coins to fall in love with her. Enjoy an off-beat, hilarious romp through the romantic comedy starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel. (Not to be confused with the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson film of the same name!)
Best Romantic Comedy 2010 – “Life as We Know It”
Katherine Heigl an Josh Duhamel unite in “Life as We Know It” to care for an orphaned baby when their best friends are killed in an automobile accident. This is the second romantic comedy for both heigl and Duhamel for the year and deserves to be ranked among the best. Two single adults become united against their will, and better judgment when the welfare of their friends’ child becomes their primary concern. There are plenty of laughs and tender moments as Heigl and Duhamel navigate unexpected parenthood and unexpected sparks.
