Top 20 Best Romantic Movies Of 2015 (Love & Comedy)

New: Top 20 Best Romantic Movies 2015 (Romantic Comedies & Love) Will you find romance in 2015? If it’s at the movies, then yes. We’re looking at the biggest and best romantic movies of 2015, whether it’s about pure love or romantic-comedy. In fact we’ll examine every major release, good and bad. Let us know in the comments if you’ve seen any good 2015 romantic comedies, or rom-dramas.


– FEBRUARY –


Love, Rosie
Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin, Tamsin Egerton, Suki Waterhouse
Director: Christian Ditter
Out: 6 February 2015 (U.S. Release Dates)
Best Romantic Movies 2015

Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When Alex and his family move from the UK to America, their friendship is challenged by the years and the miles. Then will they gamble everything – including their friendship – on true love, or will misunderstandings, circumstances and bad luck continue to keep them apart? Based on the 2004 novel ‘Where Rainbows End’ by Cecelia Ahern (author of ‘PS, I Love You’). The book was a warm-hearted, life-affirming story of friendship and true love, but the movie’s being marketed in America as a raunchy, sexy romp which is completely misleading (see the international trailer instead). Critics say the movie’s too contrived in the way it keeps the lovers apart and that its overall charm wears thin, but audiences have connected with it. [Critics (via Rotten Tomatoes): 26%] [Public (via IMDB): 7.2]

Fifty Shades Of Grey
Starring: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eloise Mumford, Rita Ora
Director: Sam Taylor-Johnson
Out: 13 February 2015
Best Romantic Comedies 2015

A virginal literature student (Johnson, ‘Need for Speed’) goes to interview the handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey (Dornan, TV’s ‘The Fall’) and discovers an electric mutual attraction. But he strictly controls everything in his life and she learns he’s only interested in a relationship on his terms. As they delve into a passionate affair, he introduces her to his world of dark and kinky S&M fantasies. She soon finds herself exploring her own desires for the first time… Based on the 2011 erotic romance by British author E. L. James. It’s sold over 100 million copies worldwide, while on Amazon UK it’s shifted more copies than the entire Harry Potter series combined. Mr Grey actor Jamie Dornan is a virtual unknown, after Charlie Hunnam got cold feet and dropped out. Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. Critics say the movie improves slightly on the poorly-written novel, cutting out the most ridiculous parts and making the leads more rounded characters with a sense of humour. But there just isn’t the required chemistry between the leads, not least because Dornan is just a touch too young and wimpy, not really the dominant type. The sex is no more explicit or daring than ‘Basic Instinct’ 20 years ago. As a phenomenon it has some interest and fans will generally get something from it, but it doesn’t appeal much beyond that. [Critics: 25%] [Public: 4.1]

The Rewrite
Starring: Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, Bella Heathcote, J.K. Simmons, Allison Janney
Director: Marc Lawrence
Out: 13 February 2015
Best Romantic Films 2015

In 1998, Ray (Grant) was on top of the world – a witty, sexy, Englishman in Hollywood who had just won an Oscar for Best Screenplay. Fifteen years later, he’s creatively washed up, divorced, and broke, so takes a job teaching screenwriting at a small college on the East Coast. Although the idea is less than thrilling, he hopes to make some easy money and enjoy the favours of impressionable young co-eds. What he doesn’t expect to find is romance with a single mom (Tomei) who’s gone back to school and who winds up giving him a few lessons of her own. This marks the fourth collaboration between Grant, director Lawrence and Castle Rock (after ‘Two Weeks Notice’, ‘Music and Lyrics’, and ‘Did You Hear About the Morgans?’), in fact every movie Lawrence has ever directed starred Hugh Grant. The first of 2015’s romantic comedies, this one’s a slow-paced and mature rom-com that has a smattering of amusing one-liners and nicely observed romantic moments but won’t sweep a young person off their feet (there isn’t a kiss in the whole movie). Tomei exudes a charming happy-go-lucky appeal but rather than being leading lady she’s very much a supporting character. Grant gives his usual perfectly-serviceable performance, albeit in mid-life crisis mode. A solid one for long-time fans. [Critics: 64%] [Public: 6.2]

The Last 5 Years
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Jeremy Jordan, Natalie Knepp
Director: Richard LaGravenese
Out: 13 February 2015
Best Love Movies 2015

Adaptation of the cult musical, exploring a five-year relationship between a rising novelist (Jeremy Jordan – TV’s ‘Smash’), and a struggling actress (Anna Kendrick – ‘Up in the Air’). The structure is unique – She tells her story from the end of the relationship to the beginning, while he tells his story from the beginning of the relationship to the end. They meet just once in the middle, at the high point when he proposes. From the writer/director of ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and ‘P.S. I Love You’. Kendrick was a critical and commercial smash in singalong ‘Pitch Perfect’, and critics say she does terrific work here too, along with her co-star. But be warned, it’s for fans of full-on musicals only. [Critics: 60%] [Public: 6.0]

Focus
Starring: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro
Director: Glenn Ficarra, John Requa
Out: 27 February 2015
Best Romance Movies 2015 (Love)

Romantic comedy-drama about a veteran con artist (Smith) who takes a young, inexperienced woman (Robbie, ‘Wolf of Wall Street’) under his wing. They get involved romantically but that becomes perilous in a business where they lie and cheat for a living. The dilemmas of the encounter haunt them when they meet up again three years later. Complicating matters even more, he finds himself at odds with another suitor for the girl’s affections (Santoro), as well as a run-in with a former flame…all before the heist of a lifetime. Co-written and directed by the pair behind ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’. That was one of the best rom-coms of the last few years and they have a strong track record of offbeat, genre-subverting work. Reviews say ‘Focus’ has good chemistry and an originally structured plot, but it’s a bit too twisty for its own good. [Critics: 56%] [Public: 6.6]

    Sorry but I don’t think Cinderella sends a positive message to girls today. It teaches them to do the housework and that all their problems will be over if they’re attractive enough to land a man with status.

      Agree with you on that one. Although I really liked the movie I think Ever After if the best ‘Cinderella’ story out there. She rescues herself and sticks up for what she believes in. Check it out if you haven’t already.

    Love rom-coms. There’s so much badness and crap in the world, I like things that are charming, uplifting and make you laugh. What is better than that? So 2015 romantic comedies I need to see: Man Up and Sleeping with Other People. Please be good!!

    I adore these kinds of movies, its like seeing yourself in the shoes of a lady falling head over heels to their one true love, but its difficult to find a good one that keeps you guessing and wanting more until the very end. I think Aloha and Age of Adaline could be the best romantic movies in 2015 and I love those that have me blushing, smiling and laughing the entire time so Trainwreck and Man Up could be the best romantic comedies 2015 has to offer. Everyone should experience love!! And men can’t understand how us women feel when we watch these, get a clue..

    Great guide. I just saw Cinderella and it made me crave for Ever After again. I had to dig up my storage and unearth my Ever After “cd”. Indeed, the dresses are better and the effects better in this year’s Cinderella compared to the previous ones but I like the story in Ever After more. It’s because the Prince and Cinderella had more encounters in that story than in this new one where they only have 3. And I also love how they made the cinderella story realistic and not so much a Once upon time.. tale in Ever After.

    The Longest Ride is indeed a very good movie to watch out for….specially the love affairs of two different periods and intertwining them with a lovely and proportionate blend is very soothing to watch.
