This week I’m sharing my top ten favorite romance movies.
As you can see, I mostly prefer the romantic comedies.
Remember, I hardly ever watch rated R movies, so that cuts a lot of the more recent romances out.
10) Some Kind of Wonderful
This movie has always called to me, and it encompasses all of the 80’s teen romance films along the same vein Most girls, including myself, thought of themselves as the no-so-popular best friend type. And let’s not forget the music in this one. Love it!
9) Date Night
This one is almost more action/adventure than romance, but at it’s heart, the movie does its very best to remind this couple why they love one another. Whenever the hubby and I sit on the same side of a restaurant booth I think of this show.
8) The Proposal
The supporting characters in this film really make it shine, but the romance is delightful and half of the movie makes the reader feel as awkward as the characters, which is always a plus!
7) The Holiday
Let’s see, there’s the hilarity that is Jack Black, the everything that is Jude Law, plus the great cast of women all during the holidays. What’s not to love?
6) Two Weeks Notice
The scene when they’re stuck on the freeway and she has to go to the bathroom will never not be funny. Ever.
5) Notting Hill
I know, two Hugh Grant movies in a row, but I can’t help it. He’s got such a great, dry sense of delivery on his lines. I frequently quote bits of this one: the mayonnaise line, give it to me in yards, Horse and Hound…
4) My Big Fat Greek Wedding
This show is hilarious. My family is the quiet, dull family in this show, and my hubby’s fam is the Greek family. Neither is quite as extreme as in the movie, but the contrast is certainly there. Also, tell me you’ve never wondered about putting Windex on a cold sore?
3) The Cutting Edge
2) Ever After
I do love a good fairy tale retelling, and this movie is one of the best! It incorporates a strong female lead who helps the prince unlock his true potential while also falling in love. The end gets me every time.
1) Pride and Prejudice
The BBC version is my favorite, but in general, I’ll watch or read any well-told P & P retelling. This spot represents all of those retellings.
His Girl Friday
Maybe the best dialogue between a couple of any move ever
So funny. So sad. So great. It makes you think, what if…
Sleepless in Seattle
Because Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks
Duh, romance and zombies? You know I’m there.
