IN MY OPINION… this list has a lot of movies from producers and writers who really hate black people AND… wish to continue to flooding America with negative imagery. I hope to learn which ones are what an what ones are which. Are black people really impossible to photograph with the same quality of lighting as white people? Is our skin not beautiful? I am simply looking at the dramatically uneven racial representation of the artwork & titles. I can clearly see why black people are discriminated against by the advertising campaign apparent from the artwork. What will make these movies even worse if they are really good.
“Malcom X” has bloody X across his face, “Mandella…” has his back turned to the camera, “42 The Jacky Robinson Story ”… can’t see his face either and those films are supposed to bring pride to Black America? Apparently, the better the film the more degrading the cover photo.
Yeah, I plan to watch some of these films to get a better feel on the subliminal war against black people by the movie and television industry. I guess it doesn’t matter how black actors represent their race as long as they make a dollar from it. The only positive things I see from just looking at the artwork is that hardly any of the actors are flashing weapons. How can the American Motion Picture Industry sell a black interest motion picture when the actors are not displaying weapons on the cover? I plan to find out.

Hooking up? No problem. “Meet cute” at the book shop? Happens all the time. Finding the right one, falling in love, and getting married? What else are you gonna do? But compiling the ultimate list of the Freshest romantic comedies? It’s complicated.
For our list of the 150 best romantic comedies of all time, we searched high and low throughout movie history for every permutation of (hilarious) courtship and love captured on camera. We have the dazzling wit of the early studio system (His Girl Friday, Bringing Up Baby), the realistic cynicism of the ’70s (Annie Hall, The Goodbye Girl), and the sweeping romance in-between (The Apartment, Roman Holiday). There was plenty to find in the John Hughes, teen-driven era (Say Anything…, Pretty in Pink), and the bubbly ’90s decade that followed (Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral, While You Were Sleeping). Then we dabbled in 21st century raunch (Knocked Up) and twee ((500) Days of Summer), leading into our current era of new voices declaring that they too are entitled to their own messy relationship stories (The Big Sick, Crazy Rich Asians).
The only stipulation for a rom-com to get a shot at love on this list was achieving a minimum of 20 reviews, before we sorted it all by Adjusted Tomatometer. And because we want you feeling red, and not seeing red, we want to prepare you for some of the relatively low placements for beloved classics like Pretty Woman, Love Actually, and Sleepless in Seattle. The Tomatometer, just like the heart, does not deceive.
Ready to dive into the sea of love? Then continue on with open arms into Rotten Tomatoes’ 150 best romantic comedies of all time!
