There is only one Julia Roberts, and there will likely never be another actress like her.

With an incredibly contagious and endearing smile and a mane of beautiful red curls that have been drawing sighs since the mid-80s, Julia has proven once and once again that she is one of Hollywood’s brightest stars.

Revisiting her best romantic movies, her classic Rom-Coms is to relive a large part of modern cinema’s history. But which ones are the best? The most iconic? The must-sees? Here are

Julia Roberts’ Best Rom Coms

Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman is not only one of the most iconic films in Julia Roberts’s Rom-Com filmography, it is arguably one of the most beloved and memorable films in cinema history.

Julia Roberts plays a prostitute who meets a wealthy businessman, played by the ever charming actor Richard Gere, who introduces her to a life of honeyed luxury and, eventually, love.

Pretty Woman is the type of movie that you can watch over and over again without growing tired of it.

Notting Hill

Notting Hill is often pitted against Petty Woman for the spot of Julia Roberts’s best romantic comedy. The movie tells the story of a British bookseller, played by the “King of Rom-Com Hugh Grant”, who falls for a popular American actress, played by Julia.

Notting Hill is a well-told story with just the right mix of whimsy, quirkiness, romance, and comedic charm to go down in history as one of the best Rom Coms ever made.

My Best Friend’s Wedding

My Best Friend’s Wedding was a bonafide worldwide box office hit, and its soundtrack was one of the most successful of the year.

This one is on the funnier side of the Rom-Com formula and it managed to subvert expectations in many ways.

My Best Friend’s Wedding tells the story of two life-long friends who made a promise to marry each other, and how that promise falls apart when a young Cameron Diaz walks onto the scene.

Valentine’s Day

This is one of the first showcases of Julia Roberts’s acting chops and endearing personality.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is a relatively recent release in Julia Roberts’s storied career and proves that she still has it.

The movie, though received critically by some reviewers in the industry, is a delightful tale of love, family, friendship, loss, and self-realization.

There are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of heartfelt moments. If you like Julia Roberts’ more lighthearted side, Mother’s Day is sure to please.

Runaway Bride

This brilliant comedy is another successful collaboration with her longtime director friend Garry Marshall, and it reunites Roberts with Richard Gere to give us a bit more of their on-screen chemistry.

The movie tells the story of a “forever bride” who just can’t seem to truly commit to making it down the aisle.

But, like in all romantic comedies, the runaway bride’s path crosses with that of an enigmatic and endearing gentleman who manages the impossible and conquers her heart completely.

America’s Sweethearts

Julia Roberts takes a step down from leading lady in America’s Sweethearts, but it is her presence that keeps this film from becoming predictable.

She brings venerable spontaneous moments, sympathetic sensibilities, and truly funny moments. Julia Roberts’ laughter is worth the price of admission.

I Love Trouble

1994’s I Love Trouble features Julia Roberts alongside superstar Nick Nolte in a highly entertaining romantic comedy/crime film that tells the story of two rival Chicago news reporters as they join forces to decipher a mysterious accident.

The resulting film is one of Ms. Roberts’ most divisive, but also one of her most whimsical and legitimately funny.

Something to Talk About

Something to Talk About is one of Julia Roberts’ Rom Coms that is tinged with more than a bit of drama. It tells the story of a woman dealing with her husband’s infidelity and her family’s inability to see things her way.

If you like Battle of the Sexes stories, small-town quirkiness, and self-realization, this one will give you plenty to talk about.
