The best romantic comedy ever

Recommended Posts

You might be right. Tough to beat. To go up against this juggernaut, I might probably have to start with something from Lubitsch or Wilder.

Lubitsch-- I'd say HEAVEN CAN WAIT (1943) is the most romantic comedy he made. 

Wilder-- maybe THE EMPEROR WALTZ (1948).

My vote would be "The Philadelphia Story ". Romantic Comedy at it's finest

While I'm a big fan of The Philadelphia Story,  I don't find a lot of romance in it.    In fact 2 out of the 3 romances are bogus  (Tracy and Kittredge,  no romance there for sure,  and Tracy and Mike,  which was mostly just booze and Mike being a flake).

Of course there is true-love between Tracy and Dexter,,,,,  but it isn't until the very end that we see any romance between the two.   

There is also the Mike and Elizabeth love affair;   little romance goes on between these two and Mike going back to her,,,,,well,,,, that is more pathetic than romantic.   (I feel sorry for the gal).

I am going to agree with It Happened One Night. Although my personal favorites are The Shop Around the Corner and Ninotchka, It Happened One Night was a significant inspiration for the genre.
