Back in 1990 Pretty Woman hit the big screen.

During this time the two fall in love. The movie is not short of its funny scenes and has a very memorable love story indeed.
10 Things I Hate About You:
This 1999 romantic comedy starring Julia Stiles and the late Heath Ledger was based on high school romance. The movie is about a new boy at school who falls head over heels for it girl Bianca but there is a big problem… Bianca is not allowed to date until her older, awkward and bad-tempered sister Kat does. Camron decides to get Kat a date and that is where the fun begins. The movie will no doubt make you chuckle as you watch the teens fall in love.
50 First Dates:
50 First dates is an epic love story about a girl who suffers from a fictitious memory impairment (Drew Barrymore) and the guy who wants to date her despite the condition she has (Adam Sandler). The guy goes out of his way to get a date with this girl on a daily basis to make her like him all over again… Some days it goes pretty good but others, well, let’s just say ends up in hilarious disaster.
What Women Want:
This movie tries to answer the question that every guy has… What Do Women Want? Well, that’s a question Nick (Mel Gibson) wished for and he ended up with a lot more than he bargained for. One night while testing out woman’s products for his advertisement company nick falls in the bath with a hairdryer and ends up being able to hear the thoughts of every woman he comes across. This movie makes me laugh each time I watch it which is why It just had to be on this list.
Any movie starring Tom Hanks ends up being a great one… Including this 1984 romantic comedy Splash. Splash is sort of a real-life Little Mermaid situation but with a normal guy instead of a prince. Basically, guy meets girl, the girl is a mermaid, guy and girl fall in love. Its a great love story with great comedy scenes to boot. If you haven’t seen it I strongly suggest you do.

She’s All That:
This movie was possibly the most popular teen romantic comedy of the 90s and with good reason… That reason was the dreamy Freddie Prinze Jr. The movie is based on a bet made by the most popular boy in high school and his friends.

The girl they pick is Laney, a girl who loves art, wears overalls and glasses. Little did Zack know when making this bet that Laney would end up being the girl of his dreams.
