This list is desperately missing "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." It should definitely be Top 20 or 30.

Dr Zhivago is too low.

"But for you to marry that boy would be a disaster. Because there's two kinds of women. There are two kinds of women and you - as we well know - are not the first kind. You, my dear, are a slut." -- Rod Steiger as Viktor Komarovsky

I feel like Gone With the Wind should be higher.

Does Brokeback Mountain count? More of a drama I guess? What about Love Actually?

I guess romantic dramas should count. There's also heaps of romantic comedies on the list.

Yes, one of which isn't "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Again, that movie should be very, very high up.

I hate romantic comedies in general but there are exceptions to everything.

Annie Hall. When Harry Met Sally. Princess Bride. Moonstruck. As Good as it Gets. Anything with Audrey Hepburn in it. AND AMELIE, I LOVE AMELIE.

And where is Philadelphia Story? Hell, where is Wall-E? No Lost in Translation either? The fuck?

Forgetting Sarah Marshell was pretty damn good too, for a movie I totally expected to hate just because it made Russell Brand popular. And it convinced me that Mila Kunis is actually an actress with potential.

So maybe I should suck up my pride and finally retire that running gag about me thinking she is the most hideous looking person on the planet just because I stayed so fucking bitter over that whole hottest women contest fiasco that happened a few years ago.

Eternal Sunshine should totally be on this list too. It's a brilliant deconstruction of romance movies in general. And any romance movie that doubles as a great mindfuck movie gets cool points with me. All hail Charlie Kaufman.

Oh yeah and Tangled is one of the best romantic comedies I've seen as of late too.

I haven't seen Zombieland but I hear that it's a horror romantic comedy? Sounds awesome.

How in the world is When Harry Met Sally... the FOURTH highest Meg Ryan film? I'd switch it with You've Got Mail. It really set the template for the romantic comedies that followed, and the scenes of the various couples talking really helps cement the romanticness of it all, if that matters.

You're actually mistaken. It's the sixth highest.
