I don't see as much info on them because they aren't big in the box office I guess but what are the best romantic films of the past decade.

I'm guessing it's mostly low grossing ones that normally you wouldn't hear about?

The ones below are the only ones since 2005 that I like and most of them not that much not to mention that I think Her, 500 Days of Summer, and Before Midnight were the only three pure romantic movies on the list. If it helps, my all-time favourite romantic films are The Apartment, Before Sunrise/Sunset, Groundhog Day, Say Anything, and Breakfast At Tiffany's.

  • 500 Days of Summer
  • Frances Ha
  • Silver Linings Playbook
  • Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
  • Moonrise Kingdom
  • Before Midnight
  • The 40 Year Old Virgin
  • Her
  • Adventureland
  • Up In The Air
  • Just Like Heaven
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  • Knocked Up
  • The Invention of Lying
  • She's Out of My League

As far as dumb rom-coms go, Leap Year was delightful. It was light, funny, and didn't completely fall to pieces at the end.

I also liked Letters to Juliet. This was another dumb-ish rom-com that just knew what kind of movie it was and excelled at it. You want beautiful people? Got it. Gorgeous travel photography? Got it and good. A simple story that leaves you feeling a-okay about love and life? Right here. The romance going on between the older couple (whose real life story seems to be the basis for the movie) is actually much sweeter than the youngsters. Anyway, it's just a simple pleasure.
