1. About Time

With one of the most unusual plots on our list, this film is a notable rom-com that shows us what life would be like if we had the power to go back in time to a moment where we wish we'd done something differently to relive it and do it again the right way. If you could go back to every moment where you said the wrong thing or where you were too afraid make a move, you might go from geek to sleek overnight.

3. Set It Up

Sometimes when people make their whole life about work, there can be a trickle-down effect that occurs which affects the lives of the people who work under them. In this case, the best way for two hardworking assistants to get their social lives back will be to work together to make sure their bosses have a social life, too. There are also times where people think that they're setting up someone else, but they might unknowingly be setting themselves up in the process.

4. 50 First Dates

This film is one that you're likely to see on every Valentine's Day list or even just any list of the greatest rom-coms of all time. Though Adam Sandler is absolutely known for his out-of-the-box comedy, he's also known for this gem because it's one of his most endearing films that shows what it really means to love someone unconditionally... and we get to hear him sing a little bit, too.

6. Mr. Right

When we meet new people who seem to check all of our boxes for what we want in a significant other, we might accidentally ignore the other boxes that are checked which shouldn't be. For example, the guy in this film is always 100% honest, has a pretty good sense of style, and he always gets the job done. But he also murders people. So, he might be Prince Charming when he takes you out to dinner, but he might also have to be John Wick for a quick moment in the restaurant parking lot when trouble comes calling for him.

For the main character in this film, he's had to deal with bipolar disorder in an institution, but he ends up meeting someone who has also had to deal with their own mental health condition. Even though he may think he wants to reclaim an old relationship, life may show him a better path that he wasn't even looking for.
