1. Amélie (2001)

R | 122 min | Comedy, Romance

69 Metascore

Amélie is an innocent and naive girl in Paris with her own sense of justice. She decides to help those around her and, along the way, discovers love.

Director: Jean-Pierre Jeunet | Stars: Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz, Rufus, Lorella Cravotta

Votes: 670,356 | Gross: $33.23M

Gosh, it feels strange to consider "Amelie" as a romantic comedy because it's always meant so much more to me. It's a cinematic masterpiece that explores loneliness, eroticism, bullying, parental neglect, introversion, creativity, and isolation. The romance was hugely important to me of course, but when I saw this film in the theater at age 13, all I could think was "Wow, there's someone out there who truly understands me.".

2. Moonstruck (1987)

PG | 102 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

83 Metascore

Loretta Castorini, a bookkeeper from Brooklyn, New York, finds herself in a difficult situation when she falls for the brother of the man she has agreed to marry.

Director: Norman Jewison | Stars: Cher, Nicolas Cage, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello

Votes: 45,544 | Gross: $80.64M

When I initially saw this movie on cable, several years after it premiered in theaters, I didn't know what to make of it. I hadn't seen anything like it and that baffled me. Today, I understand the truth: "Moonstruck" is undeniably brilliant. It's completely over-the-top and bizarre in ways that feel refreshingly honest and sincere, Nicholas Cage and Cher have electric chemistry and the family dynamic (usually half-yelling, always in each other's business) lovingly reminds me of my own. Also: "Snap out of it!"

3. Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)

R | 97 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

66 Metascore

A British woman is determined to improve herself while she looks for love in a year in which she keeps a personal diary.

Director: Sharon Maguire | Stars: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Gemma Jones

Votes: 213,215 | Gross: $71.54M

Like "Amelie", I saw "Bridget Jones's Diary" in theaters when it premiered and a lot of the content went over my thirteen year old head. I hadn't experienced the Spanx vs. thong conflict before a date yet and I definitely didn't get how deeply the British commit to their costume parties. However, throughout high school, I deeply empathized with Bridget's nearly routine humiliation, self-doubt, witty sarcasm, and seemingly unending quest for self-improvement. And to this day, I still think Colin Firth saying, "I like you. Just as you are." is the single sweetest, sexiest line I've heard in a movie.

4. Overboard (1987)

PG | 112 min | Comedy, Romance

53 Metascore

Votes: 49,365 | Gross: $26.71M

I LOVE films that feature mistaken identity, imposters or amnesia!
