We love the couple’s witty banter the most. They eventually confessed long-buried feelings to each other—their connection was just so strong. We weren’t surprised when we saw them again in “La La Land.”

Henry and Alex in “Red, White & Royal Blue”

This recently released romantic comedy caught the world by storm—it’s one of those romantic movies we just want to watch again and again. The story is about two people, Prince Henry (Nicholas Galitzine) and Alex Claremont-Diaz (Taylor Perez), who were forced to spend time together to end unwanted rumors after a cake catastrophe.

Alex, the first son of America, had a negative first impression of the spare heir to the throne. However, truths came out, including their attraction to each other. From makeout sessions to playful banter, their love story empowered queer romance and love generally.

Joe and Kathleen Kelly in “You’ve Got Mail”

“You’ve Got Mail” is a classic romantic comedy—and we have this couple’s chemistry to thank for that. The movie is about a connection that gets stronger online without each person knowing about the other’s real-life personality.

Joe (Tom Hanks), a bookstore chain owner, and Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan), a bookshop owner, unknowingly fall in love with each other’s online alter egos. Although they clashed in public, their pull was evident with those covert gestures and gazes. Their shared love for books intensified their connection.

Patrick and Kat in “10 Things I Hate About You”

This romantic comedy is one of those unexpected love stories that we love so much. It’s about the school’s bad boy, Patrick (Heath Ledger), who was hired to take Kat (Julia Stiles) out. Tides turned, and the original ‘assignment’ was changed.

Although she was a tough feminist, Kat’s soft interior was revealed by Patrick’s charm and crooked grin. Their witty and warm romance makes the movie a phenomenal one that we can’t ever forget.

Lara Jean and Peter in “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before”

This movie follows the story of Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor), a shy high school student who often writes love letters to guys she crushed on without ever sending them. To end the gossip, when her letters were mysteriously mailed, she had to fake-date Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo).
