Top 10 Romantic Comedy Movies

The American Film Institute asked more than 1,500 members of the film community to pick the ten best films representing ten American genres: animated, fantasy, gangster, science fiction, western, sports, mystery, romantic comedy, courtroom drama, and epic. The criterion for inclusion was feature-length (over 60 minutes), an American film, critical recognition, any major awards won, popularity over time, historical significance, and cultural impact. This list was released in 2008.
