Top 10 Romantic Comedies
By Angie Stanton
Author of Young Adult romance novels and the soon to be released Royally Lost.

I love romantic comedies and have a pretty decent collection of them on my bookcase. I’ve seen all these movies, several, if not many times and consider myself a bit of an expert on the chick flick genre. Here’s my top 10 list. Enjoy!

#10 You’ve Got Mail
This is an old classic, and you’ve gotta love anything with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.

#9 Wedding Date
I love the premise of this movie. Single girl hires a guy to be her date for her sister’s wedding. It’s absolutely hilarious, and I love Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney.

#8 Valentine’s Day
I think this movie is absolutely adorable, and I love how it brought so many huge stars together. It covers several love stories and is perfect to watch on Valentine’s Day.

#7 Wimbledon
Part of me wants to make this my #1. I love this movie. I own this movie. I’ve watched this movie about a dozen times. Here’s a new side to Paul Bettany. He is self deprecating and lovable with Kristin Dunst. Did I mention I love this movie? Go watch it!

#6 While You Were Sleeping
Most things Sandra Bullock are awesome, but this one is a real gem. I think it was her second starring role ever. Her chemistry with Bill Pullman is amazing. It takes place over the holidays, which gives it even more points!

#5 The Proposal
Funny, hilarious, outrageous! This time Sandra Bullock pairs up with Ryan Reynolds and together they are a riot. She plays his nasty boss until the tables are turned and she needs him to marry her so she can stay in the United States. And… Ryan Reynolds. Sigh.

#4 Serendipity
This movie made me fall in love with John Cusack. He is adorable and funny and adlibs a lot of his lines. It takes place in New York City, over the holidays. Kate Beckinsale is his love interest who believes in Serendipity, or shall I say fate, to bring people together, and does it ever!

#3 Crazy Stupid Love
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. O.M.G. It is hilarious, touching, and sexy. Yeah. Love this one.

#2 Kate and Leopold
I love time travel stories and this one delivers. Hugh Jackman, a reluctant Duke, comes from the past and woos Meg Ryan.

#1 The Notebook
This movie should be in the romance movie hall of fame. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling exude so much heat and love. It takes you on an epic journey and keeps you rooting for them all the way to the end.

SynopsisDragged on a family trip to Europe’s ancient cities, Becca wants nothing more than to go home. Trapped with her emotionally distant father, over-eager stepmother, and a brother who only wants to hook up with European hotties, Becca is miserable. That is until she meets Nikolai, a guy as mysterious as he is handsome. And she unknowingly finds herself with a runaway prince.

Nikolai has everything a guy could ask for-he's crown prince, heir to the throne, and girls adore him. But the one thing he doesn't freedom. Staging a coup, he flees his kingdom and goes undercover on his own European tour.

When Nikolai and Becca meet, it’s their differences that draw them together. Sparks fly as they share a whirlwind of adventures, all the while dodging his royal guard. But Becca's family vacation ends in a matter of days. Will Nikolai and Becca be forced to say goodbye forever, will his destiny catch up to him, or will they change history forever?

The Author...

Angie Stanton never planned on writing books—she wanted to be a Rockette. However, growing up in rural America with her brothers’ 4-H pigs as pets, she found that dance didn’t quite work out. Instead, she became an avid daydreamer. After years of perfecting stories in her head, she began to write them down, and the rest is history. When not writing, she loves watching natural disaster movies, going to Broadway musicals, and dipping French fries in chocolate shakes.
Best selling books by Angie include Rock and a Hard Place, SnapshotDream ChaserSnowed Over andLove ‘em or Leave ‘em. All are contemporary romances.
