& their list:
10) Love Actually (2003) — A predominantly British cast carries this Richard Curtis film through a series of different stories showing the different aspects of love. Despite the presence of both Hugh Grant and Colin Firth, it’s not as twee as you’d think.

9) The 40-Year Old Virgin (2005) — Writer/director Judd Apatow could have easily taken the raunchy route with his tale of a middle-aged virgin looking to “deflower,” but instead, this is a sweet, funny and insightful film. Steve Carell is likable as always, and Catherine Keener plays his perfect match.

8) Brokeback Mountain (2005) — The most romantic movies are about the subtle gestures, the moments in between intimacy, and Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain captures them against a vibrant Alberta landscape. Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger are amazing as ranch hands who fall in love.

so we should all watch depressing romantic movies because romantic comedies are bad for us. the end
