When Harry Met Sally (my favorite)
Cinema Paradiso
Punch Drunk Love (may not be your thing)
Notting Hill
Bridget Jones' Diary

I'd say that When Harry Met Sally is the best. I think that Cinema Paradiso is a better film, but not as frequently funny.

Charade, no doubt, is among the top 5.

Four Weddings & A Funeral

"Romantic bittersweet" is more like it, but it's a really fine film. Characters you can really feel like you know.

Groundhog Day

I defy you not to laugh at this.

Love Actually

Not on DVD yet, but this thread will last, so why not. An assortment of several short intertwined stories, and while there isn't much time for each character to be developed fully, it doesn't matter, as the film is so entertaining. Funny, touching, and sad.

Amelie

So what if it's french? It's stylish and terribly cute. Watch it.

The Princess Bride

Um... yeah, I'm stretching it there. But it's dashing, romantic, and at times incredibly funny.

Grosse Pointe Blank and High Fidelity

Substancially darker than your average, but either of these are excellent romantic comedies.

Shakespeare In Love

Brilliant.

The Wedding Singer

Could have been just very average, but the addition of the plastic 80's background and some really funny characters make this a great romantic comedy.

And finally...

Chasing Amy

A film that'll make you laugh, then kick your ass.

How about About a Boy ? Not a romantic comedy in the traditional sense, but it will leave you with the same warm and fuzzy feelings.

Pretty Woman. Sheesh, scary to think that movie's almost fifteen years old. I remember seeing it in the theater like it was yesterday.

In keeping with stuff nobody's mentioned, I'd go with Mystic Pizza nice early Julia Roberts and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance by Matt Damon.

Playing by Heart is a bit uneven but still funny and romantic.

The Truth About Cats & Dogs I totally love this movie but I think I'm the only person that loves this movie.

I am shocked and dismayed to see so many posts and not have even one of them mention the mother of all romantic comedies, Annie Hall.

Some more:

Sliding Doors

What's Up, Doc? (an homage to Bringing Up Baby, which was already mentioned, but funny enough in its own way to merit a view)

I Know Where I'm Going!

How To Marry A Millionaire

The Seven Year Itch

The Apartment

Defending Your Life

Very funny flick starring Albert Brooks who also written and directed and Meryl Streep about two people who just recently died and meet in the afterlife.
