Romantic comedies which are also excellent movies:
-His Girl Friday (and basically any screwball comedy from this era--It Happened One Night, Bringing Up Baby, etc.)
-When Harry Met Sally... (funny, moving, and stylistically innovative, to boot)
-High Fidelity (more for men, I'd say)
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (more of a romantic dramedy, but there's plenty of humor)
-Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
-Scott Pilgrim versus The World
-Lars and the Real Girl (haha)
-As Good as it Gets
-The American President
-Annie Hall (and many other Woody Allen movies)
-Groundhog Day (one of the best movies ever made)
-Chasing Amy (for that matter, Clerks 2)
And a quick scour around the internet says I've barely touched the surface. Discarding an entire genre as "too emotional" is exceptionally immature.
I have a friend who thought the way you did; I tied him to a chair and made him watch Before Sunset, and now he loves romantic movies. Give it a shot, you might enjoy yourself.
