top 10 romantic comedies of all time; top ten romantic comedies; best romantic comedies of all time
One of my favorite ways to spend Valentine’s Day — or any night really — is curled up on the couch with a favorite rom-com.

The genre is what made me want to major in film, and while it may not have been popular to answer the question of What is your favorite movie? with “anything with Audrey Hepburn” while my counterparts were naming dark and arty films, it was — and remains — the truth. (And anything that includes Nora Ephron, Meg Ryan and/or Tom Hanks.) In fact, every Valentine’s Day or anniversary (they are just four days apart) Fred Baby and I watch the first one on the list, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s a tradition that I treasure, and the past few years have even been lucky enough to see on the big screen. So, in the spirit of love and Valentine’s Day, may I present my Top 10 Romantic Comedies.

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
