Jennifer Lopez has long been one of the biggest stars in Hollywood’s firmament. The triple threat has amassed a successful career in music and movies, but there’s one genre in the latter where she particularly reigns supreme. Lopez is truly a queen when it comes to romantic comedy. For more than 20 years, Lopez has been lighting up the silver screen with her charm and we’ve rounded up some of her most beloved rom-coms to date that highlight why Lopez has been one of the most reliable mainstays of the romantic comedy genre.
It’d been years since Lopez had taken center stage in a romantic comedy when Marry Me, her latest film with Owen Wilson, debuted. The movie — which featured quite a few meta-undertones concerning Lopez’s real life in the spotlight — reinvigorated our love of the seeing the “Let’s Get Loud” songstress wooing her co-stars and audiences in equal measure.
Believe it or not, Lopez has been one of the most enthusiastic stars to take on the romantic comedy genre. Just look back 20 years ago. Lopez was in The Wedding Planner and Maid in Manhattan back-to-back. Not to mention, she starred alongside real-life beau Ben Affleck in romantic comedies Gigli and Jersey Girl before their initial early aughts split. (Thank goodness, Bennifer is back.)
Now that we’ve waxed poetic about our adoration for Lopez’s hold on the rom-com genre, let’s get to the movies! Here’s our list of most beloved J.Lo romantic comedies and where you can watch them right now.
