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 Pretty in Pink, to modern flicks, like 50 First Dates.

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.
