Now, you might be wondering, “Why does a French foreign-language film take the number one spot as Louisiana’s favorite rom-com?” Honestly, you’ve got me. Maybe it has to do with Louisiana’s cultural ties to France and the French language. Either way, Amelie, originally titled Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain in French, might need to be on your list of movies to watch this Valentine’s Day if you live in the Boot.

As for the rest of the country, the United States shows a diverse rom-com taste for timeless classics, such as Bringing up Baby, and modern flicks, like The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Some states are even rom-com crazy. Comparitech’s research found that Alaska, the District of Columbia, Maine, Utah and Vermont have more than one favorite romantic comedy. To designate which is the most popular film for that state, researchers used the film that was more popular over the last 12 months. 

Also, several states love the flicks that were filmed right in their backyards. Washington’s top pick is 10 Things I Hate About You and Pennsylvania’s is Silver Linings Playbook. Viewers likely enjoy seeing their own state as the movie’s backdrop. 

If you haven’t watched all of these romantic comedies yet, then maybe this is your time to see what the fuss is all about. Read more results here.
