List Rules Vote up the 2010's romantic comedies that you love.

If you like to laugh and swoon at movies in equal measure, then you're exactly the type of person we want to vote for the best romantic comedies of the last decade. This list will give you a comprehensive look at all the rom coms to have been released between 2010 and today. Many of your favorites will certainly be on here, but you might also pick up a few decent recommendations for films you haven't yet seen. 

Romantic comedies tend to be viewed as lightweight entertainment. Sometimes, they're just that -- and there's nothing wrong with it. Pictures like Home Again, The Back-Up Plan, and Set It Up are all fairly traditional examples. At the same time, several of the best rom coms of the 2010s play around with the formula, adding new elements or elevating the storytelling. The Big Sick, Silver Linings Playbook, and Crazy Rich Asians have all done this, to great acclaim. 

Vote up the best romantic comedies of the 2010s from the list below, based on how much they touch your heart. And if there are some you think miss the mark, vote them down. We want the most romantic comedy movie to rise to the top.
