Christina Applegate is suuuuch a good bff in the Sweetest Thing! I mean when we first see her she's all about dancing in the street. She makes her friend go on a roadtrip to stop a wedding of a dude said friend met at a club and she also knows what to do when a friend gets a dick caught in her mouth. She and Cam don't just try on crazy outfits, they buy them and wear them to crash a wedding. If I were making the list, she'd be a strong at #3.

@Lisa Mohar@twitter She's No. 1 -- if not on this list, then in my heart


Marie! I love Marie so much. Someone else is definitely married to my husband.

Oh and it's not a get the guy type romantic comedy, but where's Mary Lynn Rajskub in Julie and Julia? I would want her if I can't have Marie.

And agreed on Christina Applegate in Sweetest Thing. She should be way higher. Sweetest thing was really good about female friendship.

Also missing: Toni Collette in Enough Said, Nicolas Hoult in About a Boy and and the deaf brother in Four Weddings and Funeral (if we can count Hugh Grant as a rom com heroine)


@MeghanElizabeth OF COURSE we can count Hugh Grant as a rom com heroine :: Notting Hill?


Kate from Only You! Yay!!


@deathcabforcutes I KNOW I was so happy to see Only You get some love! I have a serious soft spot for that movie. Peak RDJ! Billy Zane in a wig! BONNIE HUNT ALWAYS.


@chrysopoeia Bonnie Hunt in "Return to Me," so great.


Kat (Annabeth Gish) and Jojo (Lili Taylor) - Mystic Pizza****

**** Best friends are actually sister who mostly annoys the heroine and is always around, and an actual best friend


Only way this post could be better: If you'd called it "The Judy Greer Award for Best Friend in a Rom Com".
(Top 5 is fucking flawless though)

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

The spelling mistakes in this made me sad, but can we keep this going as like a continuous power ranking?

Kirsty Lee

Yes, yes, one thousand times yes, Marie is certainly #1.

But, re: #8, it's Shazzer.


I loved Rosie O'Donnell in Sleepless in Seattle...
