To discover the country’s favorite romantic comedy, 2018-2020 Coupon Lawn looked to Google Trends and Google AdWords. It compared terms related to different movies and how to watch them around Valentine’s Day. Armed with that information, Coupon Lawn was able to find out which movie was the most popular in the country, as well as each state’s individual choice.
So, which comedy for lovers came out on top? That would be the 1990s Beautiful lady, starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.
The film about a prostitute and businessman who falls in love topped the 2018-2019 list, but was dethroned in 2020 by another classic: The princess bride.

- Ignorant: This 1995 film starring Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd is based on Jane Austen’s Emma.
- Sixteen candles and Beautiful in pink: All lovers know you can never go wrong with a John Hughes classic on V-Day.
