These now-classic rom-coms from the 2000s not only made us laugh, but gave us some very swoony romantic scenarios.
In this offbeat indie (which inspired the Broadway musical), an unhappily married pregnant woman (Keri Russell) falls for her OB/GYN (Nathan Fillion). And together, they make a lot of beautiful pies.
'Just Like Heaven' (2005)
A recently widowed architect (Mark Ruffalo) finds his new apartment comes with an occupant: A bossy ghost! (Reese Witherspoon). The lengths he goes through to be first get rid of her -- and then be with her -- are impressive. (Don't worry, it isn't suicide that lets them be together.)
'Something New' (2006)
A sensible accountant (Sanaa Lathan) has her choice of savvy businessmen to date, so why is she falling for her scruffy landscape architect (Simon Baker)? There's a steamy scene in the rain and an incredibly romantic, "defying the odds to proclaim your love" ending.
'Bride and Prejudice' (2004)
Independent Lalita (Aishwarya Rai) insists on marrying for love, much to her father's dismay. She takes an immediate dislike to American William Darcy (Martin Henderson), which of course means they're really meant for each other in this Indian spin on "Pride and Prejudice."
'Mamma Mia1' (2008)
What could be more romantic than getting married on a scenic island in Greece? The ocean views, the fun music, the good-looking cast (with varying degrees of singing talent) are all pretty swoon-worthy.
'Sweet Home Alabama' (2002)
No offense, Patrick Dempsey, but when Josh Lucas shoots those moldering looks at Reese Witherspoon, it's game over!
'Return to Me' (2000)
Widower Bob (David Duchovny) finds love again with Grace (Minnie Driver) -- until they both realize she received his dead wife's heart as a transplant! Can their love survive? His big romantic gesture -- flying to Italy to declare his love – will have you misty-eyed.
'The Mummy Returns' (2001)
Besides being an action comedy and a horror comedy, "The Mummy" movies are also romantic comedy, thanks to sparring spouses Evie (Rachel Weisz) and Rick (Brendan Fraser). It's a love that transcends time and death -- but not a third film, alas, when Evie was recast. Oh well, we'll always have the first two films.
'Brown Sugar' (2002)
It takes the whole movie for Sid (Sanaa Lathan) to realize she's in love with Dre (Taye Diggs). Even after they hook up, she's conflicted. He's married! She's engaged to someone else! But an on-air declaration of love beats all. The end!
''My Big Fat Greek Wedding' (2002)'
Mousy Toula (Nia Vardalos) gets a makeover and catches the eye of handsome teacher Ian (John Corbett). Let's not forget he was also Carrie Bradshaw's squeeze on "Sex and the City." Hummina hummina. But Toula gets to marry him. Sorry, Carrie!
'The Holiday' (2006)
An international house swap leads American Amanda (Cameron Diaz) to cross paths with very easy-on-the-eyes Brit Graham (Jude Law).
'Before Sunset' (2004)
"Baby ... you are gonna miss that plane." We just can't get enough of Celine and Jesse in this second film in the series. Achingly romantic and sweetly funny.
'Bridget Jones's Diary' (2001)
When Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) finally realizes that Mark Darcy (Colin Firth) is the one, it's a snowy New Year's Eve. She panics when it seems he's fled after reading her scathing early thoughts about him in her diary. That kiss in the snow (he's gone to buy her a new diary, the dear) is movie romance at its peak. And still funny: She's in her underwear!
