3) WALL-E (2008)
You might be wondering that what on earth is an animated movie doing in the genre of romantic comedies. But trust me, this list will remain incomplete if we miss to mention this movie. Produced by Pixar Animation Studios and under the direction of Andrew Stanton of Finding Nemo’s fame, this is a futuristic love story of a lovestruck robot called Wall-E living alone on Earth which had been evacuated by humans due to unsurvivable e-waste dump.
Wall-E is adorable with its cute and clumsy expressions which can make you laugh yet it’s love for duty-bound Eve(the probing robot sent by humans) can move you to tears. This movie is a delight to watch, enjoy the mind blowing animation and admire the subtle emotions portrayed.
