February 12, 2021   |   Jillian Letourneau

Who doesn’t love cozying up to a romantic comedy, especially on Valentine’s Day? Whether you’re in the mood for a classic or contemporary rom-com, this list gives you a few options to satisfy your need for comedy, chemistry, and romance on the holiday dedicated to love. So pop some popcorn, pour yourself a drink, and settle in for the perfect Valentine’s Day movie in your Devonshire home.

Roman Holiday 

Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck star as a princess and a reporter in this dreamy 1953 romantic comedy. Shot on location in Rome, the scenery is breathtaking, the comedy is lighthearted, and the romance is timeless. Roman Holiday is a classic rom-com for anyone, but especially for those who are charmed by old-fashioned romance.

You’ve Got Mail

What do you get when two bitter business rivals unknowingly fall in love with each other online? You get a positively hilarious, romantic, and serendipitous modern classic. The 1998 film, You’ve Got Mail, stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, a dynamic pair, unwittingly destined for each other. The duo finds themselves trapped in a delightfully comedic predicament sure to bring love and laughter to your Valentine’s Day at Devonshire. 

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days 

Falling in love and breaking up go hand in hand in this rom-com, but not necessarily how you would expect. A journalist’s experiment based on common mistakes women make to drive men away meets a businessman’s bet on how fast a handsome man can make a woman fall in love with him in this 2003 film, starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. The unlikely couple will satisfy anyone’s craving for a perfectly silly and sweet romantic comedy this Valentine’s Day. 

50 First Dates 

A testament to the unexpected, comedic, and unwaveringly patient nature of love, this movie is sure to become an instant favorite (if it isn’t already!) A marine veterinarian named Henry falls in love with an art teacher named Lucy, who is afflicted with amnesia which causes her to relive the same day every day. As a result, Henry devotes himself to winning Lucy’s love every day, and it’s nearly impossible not to fall in love with the pair. This 2004 rom-com staple starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore is one that could very likely become your newest Valentine’s Day tradition. 

The Proposal

This 2009 film starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds shows that love can grow in unconventional ways, even in the case of a staged proposal and wedding. An executive and her assistant devise a plot to prevent her deportation back to Canada and to save both of their careers. In a turbulent journey of romance, laughter, and unplanned chemistry, The Proposal will be a lovely addition to your Valentine’s Day plans at Devonshire.
