Top 5 Quirky, Post-90s Romantic Comedies

Someon Like You
I love romantic comedies. Anything written by Nora Ephrom or starring a pre-plastic surgery Meg Ryan I memorized, purchased, and re-watched annually. 'You've Got Mail,' 'While You Were Sleeping,' 'Sleepless in Seattle,' 'Truth About Cats and Dogs,' and 'The Proposal' are my top five to date.

Top Big-Screen Couples Of The Decade

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
There have been many memorable onscreen pairings in the new millennium, but these couples top our list:

Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

Playing against type, with Winslet sporting day-glo punk hairstyles and Carrey slouching with a sad hound dog face, these two captured love in all of its inglorious, impossible-to-get-along shapes.

Instead, Winslet and Carrey work wonders together as a c...
