They Came Together comes out this week, with stars we love (Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd), and a premise we can't resist: it's a romantic comedy satire. It feels like it's high time to skewer the genre, since the last few years have been a bleak time for romantic comedies. I don't know what happened to girls just standing in front of boys asking them to love them or why Tom Hanks isn't shutting down Meg Ryan's shop anymore; I just know that this genre isn't as good as it used to be. To help matters, I've picked out 11 great romantic comedies that you can stream on Netflix — 11 movies that are either old favorites, gems you may have never seen, or semi-recent movies you missed for whatever reason.
