To separate the best of the bunch, PrettyFamous, an entertainment research site by Graphiq, found the top rom-coms of all time. The team ranked romantic comedies on their Smart Rating -- a score out of 100 that takes into account a movie's Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer and Audience Score, IMDb rating, Metacritic Metascore, Gracenote rating and the inflation-adjusted cumulative U.S. box office gross. Movies were required to have over 15,000 IMDb votes to qualify and ties are broken by a film's IMDb rating.
What differenciate romantic comedy from simple comedy?the laugh?the love? I'm impressed by the lack of laugh from the audience in most or all the recent comedies,romantic or not.Why the frank,simple,naive, good and healthy laughs have disappeared?the one of Chaplin or Laurel and Hardy movies,were are they?laughs have been changed into smiles and that's called a comedy.Sometimes as in series we hear laughs in the background just to mark the instant we should have laughed but didn't spontanously.Just as if we were completely retarded and didn't understand that "just here at this moment you should have laughed".Did we become all spoiled by the enormity of the productions and ,as a consequence, lost our simplicity ,the naive vision of the children.They also laugh less with time.It's a pity.Perhaps we should learn to laugh again ...laugh defines humans...
So glad that City Lights is #1 on the list. It does suck that I've only seen about 20 of these films.
