Everybody loves a good rom-com whether they’re recovering from a recent heartbreak, feeling particularly lonely or are just in the mood to laugh.

Romantic comedies are light-hearted movies containing a humorous plot line revolving around romance. Though they are often referred to as “chick flicks” and dismissed as senseless and dull, rom-coms appear to be making a comeback in pop culture.
