That Is My Movie! White Rom-Coms Black Folks Love

December 4, 2012 ‐ By


I’m a sucker for romantic comedies; battle of the sexes and chick flicks with all-Black casts are actually my weakness. But that doesn’t take away from my love for the same types of films with predominately White casts, which I find to be equally entertaining At the end of the day, love is love, regardless of race and I know I’m not the only one out there who loves Love Jones just as much as, say, The Notebook. Check out this list of popular rom-coms that have predominantly White casts but are on plenty of black folks’ “favorite move” lists.

    I can only watch The Breakup because of my love for Vince Vaughn. He just makes all comedies better!

    Ya’ll need to put a movie starring Debra messing titled The Wedding Date… that movie is goooood! Sad u guys are missing the classic pretty woman, work it baby work it, own it… lol

  • De

    Something Borrowed it is so underrated. That movie was excellence and relate able for ppl. Stars Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. About love and friendship.

    The Notebook, need I say more? Lol. I can watch it a million times and it never gets old. I still cry at all the same parts as if I haven’t seen it before 🙂

  • I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the notebook and 500 days of summer

  • get real

    And white worship continues. I wonder how many all blk casts can white folks tell you about? Because I’m sure they loved Soul Food, Jumping the Broom etc.

    • Cleo

      I see where you coming from, but unfortunately white people run the media and our stories or films are not seen as important as theirs.

      • get real

        Does that mean drool over their bs all white cast movies? Your attitude is why little blk kids can see a white doll and say its prettier and better then the one that looks like her.

  • Diam

    I can’t be the only Black girl who loves When Harry Meets Sally.

    • Teri

      You’re not. That’s my Ish.

  • ANTMilf

    I love me some Bridesmaids that I rented one from Red Box last year and kept it for $20. I also love Ghost, Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman.

    • RJA

      Yooooo, I did the same thing with Bridesmaids ctfuuu, we stoopid

  • I could watch Bridemaids over and over! That movie had me cracking up in the theater! I have to agree with most of this list but having to keep clicking was getting on my nerves!

  • Guest89

    I like most of these. The Notebook, Ghost, and Dirty Dancing aren’t romantic comedies though, more like drama/tear jerkers.

  • Allie

    I LOVE the breakup and bridesmaids 🙂

  • Laine
