2. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

The Judd Apatow classic that led Russell Brand and Jason Segel into superstardom has just the right amount of mush, humour, vulgarity and pizzazz to make it onto our Top 10.

4. Miss Congeniality

She’s beauty and she’s grace, she’s Miss United States...Who can resist the goofy and lovable Sandra Bullock as Grace, the federal FBI agent with admirable skills for the law, but primitive skills when it comes to her latest undercover identity - as a contender for the Miss United States Beauty Pageant!

5. Music and Lyrics

Two of the genre's favourite players get together in this romantic comedy about love, music and...plants?

8. My Best Friend’s Wedding
