  1. The most romantic film(s) in my opinion are:

    The Christmas Lodge (or Christmas Lodge). This one has a distinctly religious undertone, so won’t be for everyone. But even I, who is jaded vis a vis all things romantic and ‘sappy’ was bawling by the end. *sniff* It was a beautiful film.

    Titanic. And I only saw it once, and won’t ever watch it again. It sorta tore my heart a little. It tears everyone’s heart a little I think the first time they see it. Any subsequent viewing is (to me) redundant.

    You’ve Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally. Yeah, yeah, yeah. More funny than ‘romantic’ per se, but love stories all the same.

    Eat, Pray, Love.

    Under The Tuscan Sun.

    The Last of the Blonde Bombshells.

    Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men – again more comedy than romance, but a lot of romance all the same.

    There are DOZENS. These are just some I really enjoyed. πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve started a list, because I’m doing something similar next month….here are my choices:

    When Harry Met Sally
    Sleepless In Seattle
    The Notebook
    Ten Things I Hate About You
    Leap Year
    Mamma Mia
    Hope Floats
    Fools Rush In
    Somewhere In Time
    West Side Story
    Pride & Prejudice
    Wuthering Heights
    The Choice
    Crazy Stupid Love
    Love, Actually
    PS I Love You
    Music & Lyrics
    He’s Just Not That Into You
    Bridges of Madison County
    Nights In Rodanthe
    Little Manhattan
    Across The Universe
    The Wedding Singer
    Benny & Joon
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Punch Drunk Love

    Not a love story, but has one of the sweetest/romantic scenes:
    Stranger Than Fiction, When he gives his girlfriend “flours”

    Steamiest sex scenes:
    9 1/2 Weeks
    A History of Violence
    Donnie Brasco

  3. Roman Holiday, The African Queen, Mrs. Miniver, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, The Quiet Man, Brigadoon, A Place in the Sun, Desk Set, Woman of the Year, The Philadelphia Story, An Affair to Remember, West Side Story, Splendor in the Grass, The Sand Pebbles, The Goodbye Girl, Last of the Blonde Bombshells, Mrs. Henderson Presents, A Fish called Wanda, Under the Tuscan Sun, Music and Lyrics, Before Sunset, Notting Hill, The Importance of Being Ernest, A room With a View. I can’t think of anymore….lol

  4. Oooo! One I forgot when I sent in my list previously was


    Anyone who doesn’t find that movie romantic isn’t paying attention nor knows the definition of the word IMHO. I saw it again the other evening and it brought a tear to my eye. It’s very beautiful.

  5. I go old school (kinda) with romantic movies:
    Rebecca, Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility, The Ghost and Mrs Muir, My Fair Lady, South Pacific, Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, Faust, The Sheik, Adam’s Rib, Roman Holiday, An Affair to Remember, The King and I, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, West Side Story, Three Coins in the Fountain, Hello Dolly, The Parent Trap, Tammy and the Doctor, and The Remains of the Day.

    1. All absolutely excellent choices Teresa, l tend to agree, l think that some of the movies from the 40’s – 60’s , the BW’s had more to them to some of the newer ‘love stories’ πŸ™‚

      All noted and added πŸ™‚

  6. One of my absolute favourite old romantic films is Random Harvest starring the lovely Greer Garson and Ronald Coleman.

    The Quiet Man is another good one.

    An Affair To Remember is fantastic too.

    Show Boat – I like the 1936 version with Irene Dunne in the best, but the MGM version in 1951 is also good.

    A more modern film that is actually a comedy, but has a nice love theme running through it is There’s Something About Mary.


      1. I know its one of the funiest films I have EVER seen. I saw it for the first time on TV and cried with laughter from beginning to end, then went out and bought the DVD. It’s one of the few films made in the last 20 years that I like. Actually, I just checked it, and it came out 21 years ago!!! I feel Old now.

  7. I have a LOT to list and I’m not really that into romantic movies (or maybe I am?) Some have already been listed but I’ll put them in here anyway: The Notebook, Moonstruck, A Fish Called Wanda, Brokeback Mountain, Natural Born Killers (hey, love is love!), Wild at Heart (smokin hot David Lynch movie), Pacific Rim, Dr. Zhivago, Cloud Atlas, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Pretty Woman, Amour (end of life tear jerker), Ghost (perhaps the best love story ever created!), The Cakemaker (wow, it takes love story to the next level), Call Me By Your Name, The Hot Spot (Don Johnson in his prime!)

  8. My two favourites are Ghost (although it never fails to make me cry) and Dangerous Liaisons (which come to think of it also makes me cry)…..I don’t watch romantic films very often :O) x
