Updated September 24, 2019 513 votes 62 voters 5.3k views50 items

List of the best 2009 romantic comedy movies, ranked by how many upvotes they've received by other fans of the genre. Some of these romantic-comedies are more comedy than romance, while others focus more on the hardships of relationships and the theme of love conquers all. These are all the romantic comedy movies that defined the year 2009, so vote for your favorites and help them rise to the top. This poll is also a great resource for finding new movies that you haven't already seen, especially since you can watch trailers for each film right on this page. To make sure this list is as accurate as possible, please don't downvote a movie if you haven't seen it.

Examples include (500) Days of Summer and Up in the Air. This isn't necessarily a list of all romantic comedy movies from 2009, but it does contain all the ones worth watching.
