America’s Fave RomCom by State

Valentine’s Day is next week and to commemorate the impending Holiday, which is somewhat scrutinized by singles as a Hallmark holiday, the analysts at CableTV.com created a national report revealing each state’s favorite romantic comedy film.

Report highlights include: 

  • Over one in every four states chooses Pretty in Pink as their rom-com top choice! All hail, John Hughes.
  • Everyone likes a movie that hails from their hometown: every one in seven states most enjoys movies filmed in their state the most.
  • We found predictable patterns of viewing behavior — clusters of romantic comedies dominate certain areas of the country.
  • Some popular favorites by state enforce regional clichés that are just too good to pass up commenting on:
    • Maine, which has the oldest median age in the United States, goes old school with It Happened One Night.

    • Oregon keeps it weird with Amélie, a quirky French film about an off-beat romance.

    • South Dakota, which rates in the top five highest birth rates in the U.S., gets Knocked Up a little more often.

To determine each state’s favorite romantic comedy film, the Cable TV analyst team used a Google-generated list of top rom-coms and ran them through Google Trends to find out which movies see the most love from state to state.
