Top 10 Romantic Comedies Streaming on Instant

Posted below are what we consider to be the best romantic comedies available for streaming on Netflix Instant, defined by the simple parameter of what we've watched.

5. Big

I'm not a big "romantic comedy" fan, and I'm not even sure how you truly define the term Romantic Comedy, but I'm assuming that it's some sort of combination between humor and romance, where there's some relationship being built throughout the movie?

about a boy should easily be top #3 on that list

What an odd, manly list. When Harry Met Sally is the only one mentioned that would fit in a conventional romcom list.

That's probably because most modern, "conventional" romcoms stink. I would place some of the screwball comedies of the 30s and 40s like My Man Godfrey and The Palm Beach Story on the list.

Boy meets girl under hilariously unusual circumstances. Everyone says they're all wrong for each other. They may hate each other at first.

The boy is currently engaged, or in a long-term relationship with, a domineering harpy. The girl is in a long-term relationship with a guy who's good looking, but doesn't appreciate her.

The boy and girl fall for one another through a series of wacky antics. Maybe there's a montage at some point.

But wait! There's a contrived misunderstanding, or boy does something stupid! Girl now hates boy! Oh no! Boy blew it! But to be fair, girl didn't give boy a chance to explain what is really a simple misunderstanding that was actually set up in the first or second act. That's called "foreshadowing." The writer of the film learned about it in his screenwriting class at the Learning Annex.

Boy does something wacky and adorable. Girl loves boy again.

The End (of every romantic comedy ever)
