Love – it’s a funny old game. Or at least it is in these films. Here's Time Out's definitive list of the 50 best romcoms.

Like cargo pants and saying ‘as if!’ to people, romcoms were huge in the ’90s, but fell sadly out of fashion in the 2010s. Now, though, that drought looks to be over. Thanks in part to Netflix, we’re in the middle of a romcom revival, with films like ‘Always Be My Maybe’ and ‘Set It Up’ inspiring mainstream Hollywood to start making romantic comedies again.

From Nora Ephron classics to Richard Curtis movies that are so-very-British (and so-very-funny), we’ve put together 50 of the most hilarious romantic comedies and bittersweet romances that’ll leave a lump in your throat and tears rolling down your cheeks.
