Here are some charming, highly-rated romantic comedies you may have missed in the theater. With stars like Jason Segel, Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd, Kate Hudson and Jay Baruchel, these are fun for fans of straight comedies, too. Descriptions below are from IMDB.
Peter Klaven’s (Paul Rudd) world revolves around his real estate work and Zooey (Rashida Jones), his soon-to-be fiancée. After he pops the question, she calls her best friends and they go into wedding planning mode.
Peter has no male friends and that poses problems: will he turn out to be a clingy guy, and who will be his best man?
Zooey, her friends, and Peter’s brother Robbie offer help that results in awkward moments. Then, at an open house Peter’s hosting, he meets Sydney (Jason Segel), an amiable, low-key guy.
They trade business cards, and Peter calls him to meet for drinks. A friendship develops that’s great at first but then threatens Peter’s engagement and career. Can guys be friends and couples be in love? – Written by jhailey
