The Most Searched 2000s Rom-Com in Each State

Last Updated on February 2, 2023 by Zoi Walker

Jump to:

Some of the best rom-coms of the 2000s—especially the early 2000s—still sneak into pop culture today. Just last November, Ariana Grande wore Jennifer Garner’s 13 Going on 30 dress on the set of The Voice, and the third installment of Legally Blonde premieres later this year.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, new rom-coms are about to hit theaters—but you always have the option to curl up with a nostalgic 2000s rom-com on TV instead. Will you be watching the same one your state’s been googling all year?

Interesting Findings

  • Serendipity is the most popular 2000s rom-com nationwide, with 18 states googling it most last year. Those states included New Jersey and California, two of the states where the movie was filmed.
  • Although 13 Going on 30 tied with Sweet Home Alabama for the lowest IMDb score on our list at 6.2/10, it’s the most searched movie in 7 states.
    • The film became one of the five most-rented DVDs in 2004 when it was released. 
    • The soundtrack also charted in the top 50 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
  • The Holiday topped the search results in 6 states. The film, which has been called a modern Christmas classic, has won two awards: the International Film Music Critics Award and the Teen Choice Awards.
  • Love Actually is the most searched rom-com in 5 states. 
    • The London-based Christmas film has the highest IMDb score of any movie on our list, at 7.6/10. 
    • The film was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture and won 10 awards including the 2004 Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award.
  • Although Enchanted is by far the highest grossing film on our list, earning $340 million at the box office, it was only searched most in New York, where the film takes place. 
    • Good news for Enchanted fans—a sequel called Disenchanted premieres on Disney+ in the fall of 2022.
