What’s Your Favorite Love Movie?

I have to admit I’m a sucker for romantic comedies and dramas. Whenever my boyfriend leaves town I have the guilty pleasure of nestling on the couch searching through Netflix trying to find a good romantic movie that makes my heart melt. One of my all-time favorites is Sleepless In Seattle. I know, I know, most people would cringe at my liking it but I just can’t help it, every time I watch it my heart melts.Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are great together, although I find it slightly strange that they played a similar storyline together in You’ve Got Mail. But, I still like their chemistry.  I find that these movies help you to see the magic of love and around this time of year they are perfect to watch. We want to know what your favorite romantic movie is and don’t be shy…. we love cheesy ones too!

I adore “La fille sur le pont” by Patrice Leconte! ;)

Eva -January 28, 2013, 8:14AM

I love the Notebook…but I also like The Family Man…it is a bit cheesy but it’s a favorite of mine.

Kelsey -January 28, 2013, 8:23AM

Goodbye first Love is an amazing romantic movie. I highly suggest it!

Eliza -January 28, 2013, 8:40AM

My favorite is a newer one, Charlie St Cloud. No matter how many times I watch it I still cry.

Torrie -January 28, 2013, 9:19AM

Moulin Rouge!

Kari -January 28, 2013, 9:23AM

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – I can watch it over and over again and never grow weary of it!

Jess -January 28, 2013, 9:27AM

Across the Universe- because it’s fun and fuels my Beatles obsession, and of course, Crazy Stupid Love because everything about it is great and also Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are in it so A+ !

Alexandra -January 28, 2013, 9:39AM

i absolutely love amelie. i could watch it over and over and never get tired of it.

Katherine -January 28, 2013, 10:05AM

Love Actually is hands down the best! Bridget Jones is good too.

Dani -January 28, 2013, 10:23AM

Amelie is my favourite.

Zoe -January 28, 2013, 10:25AM

It has to be True Romance. Clarence and Alabama’s whirlwind romance and the clothes make me die everytime. I wanted to be Alabama Worley so badly from the very first time I saw it! x

Keely -January 28, 2013, 10:33AM

Its a hard choice between Romeo and Juliet (1996), Tristan and Isolde, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I think if I had to pick it would be Romeo and Juliet (1996) because Leonardo DiCaprio is fantastic in the movie and Claire Danes is just down right breathtaking! OH and the soundtrack is pretty brilliant as well.

Teri -January 28, 2013, 11:13AM

Love Story and Love Actually are fabulous and I could never choose between them! Love Story has a bonus… Ali MacGraw’s preppy style is AMAZING.

Caitlin -January 28, 2013, 11:15AM

I’m not big on romantic movies, but I loved Monsoon Wedding! Also, Buffalo ’66 if that can count.

Jamie Lynn -January 28, 2013, 11:47AM

Mozart and the Whale – such a touching love story – and possibly my favorite! Oh, and I must mention Josh Hartnett is the main character for all you Hartnett fans out there. ;)

McKenzie -January 28, 2013, 11:51AM

Amelie and Moulin Rouge! And Harold and Maude <3

Jessica -January 28, 2013, 12:18PM

Wristcutters: A Love Story <3

Natalie -January 28, 2013, 12:18PM

You couldn’t have Sleepless in Seattle without An Affair to Remember (Cary grant ad Debra Carr). I have seen once a year since I was six and still cry.

Frannie -January 28, 2013, 12:22PM

Stardust is magnificent!!!

Emily Pansy -January 28, 2013, 12:30PM

The Princess Bride…hands down.

Alexis -January 28, 2013, 12:31PM

Oh man, Legends of the Fall every time. It might not have a happy ending but it’s so dramatic and romantic it gets me every time. Plus Brad Pitt is a stone fox.

jan mcillwain -January 28, 2013, 12:38PM

“You’ve Got Mail”. I will stop and watch no matter where it is in the movie.

Elissa -January 28, 2013, 12:42PM

The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds! Love it!

Maggie -January 28, 2013, 12:52PM

Garden State, or Breakfast At Tiffany’s!

Gina -January 28, 2013, 1:10PM

Like Crazy is a great one.

Kat Clark -January 28, 2013, 2:31PM

A Room with a View, Before Sunset and Before Sunset

Krista -January 28, 2013, 2:32PM

Breakfast at Tiffany’s and LaVita Bella. Both are fantastic <3

Vanessa -January 28, 2013, 3:14PM

Buffalo 66′ – by far my most favorite love story. <3

Erin -January 28, 2013, 3:26PM

I’m adore Julia Roberts. I love Notting Hill and Runaway Bride.

b -January 28, 2013, 3:28PM

my guilty pleasure movie would be “Practical Magic”.. it is straight up 90’s rom-com cheese but i love it! i’m a 90’s kid anyways. the movie has such a girly sense of magic and love.. the movie takes place in a beautiful victorian by the sea too. and every girl likes to feel a bit witchy sometimes :)

Hannah V -January 28, 2013, 3:28PM

Just married with Ashton kutcher and Brittany Murphy, soooo what will most likely happen to mean great laughs and an adorable ending!

Tess -January 28, 2013, 3:49PM

It is not really a love movie, but I love the movie Another Year. It’s about two married people though.. When I growup I want my marriage to be just like theirs. They are such a happy couple <3

Cassady -January 28, 2013, 3:53PM

Elizabethtown! Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and a fantastic soundtrack. What could be better?

Georgie -January 28, 2013, 4:08PM

Breakfast at Tiffany’s, P.S. I Love You…

Leslie -January 28, 2013, 4:31PM

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg is amazing! It makes me wish I could speak french :)

Gabby -January 28, 2013, 4:40PM

Last Night, with Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington. Simple yet amazing. And the soundtrack is really something fantastic that just sucks you into the film. Highly recommend. It’s also on Netflix ! So check it out if you have!

Morgan -January 28, 2013, 4:45PM

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE!!! I have a picture of Audrey in her lbd hanging in my room :) Two free spirits find each other :)

Morgan -January 28, 2013, 4:46PM

Also no girl can deny two classics the notebook and titanic. Both tear jerkers

Montana -January 28, 2013, 4:51PM

Almost Famous for sure! rock n roll! Second place is Gone With the Wind. I love Vivien Leigh

Rae -January 28, 2013, 5:44PM

I love Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire! Amelie is pretty isanely difficult to compete with as far as amazing cute romance comedies go. Love the two Audreys (Hepburn and Tautou)

fp julia -January 28, 2013, 5:54PM

Leslie i love that movie! i watched it in a french class once ;)

Georgia -January 28, 2013, 5:57PM

Tristan and Isolde
Pride and Prejudice

Aurelija -January 28, 2013, 6:06PM

The Lion King is my favorite one. I like most movies with Johnny Depp like What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Arizona Dream, Edward Scissorhands… There are many movies with Keira Knightley that I like too: Atonement, The Edge of Love, Pride and Prejudice and others :)

Aurelija -January 28, 2013, 6:07PM

And don’t forget to watch 8 Femmes!!!

Elise -January 28, 2013, 8:57PM

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Moonrise Kingdom! These are my two favourite films and I just love them both so much. A bit odd, but that’s what I like in a film. :)

Sarah -January 28, 2013, 9:34PM

valley girl

Reina -January 28, 2013, 9:47PM

(in no particular order)
Blue Valentine
P.S I Love You
The English Patient — I’ve only watched it once but it made my heart melt. Who knew Ralph Finnes was so hot and I think Kristen Scott Thomas is just beautiful in it.
Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, though they’re not strictly romance
Pride and Prejudice

Catherine Hoban -January 28, 2013, 10:02PM

Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina….visually stunning, and Tolstoy’s story is eternal <3

Laura -January 28, 2013, 10:10PM

Before Sunrise and it’s sequel Before Sunset
simple films yet so great
definitely a must watch!

Erin -January 29, 2013, 2:14AM

I have so many of them…but since we’re talking about 90’s cheesy, how about Hope Floats ;)

Sweet Sarah -January 29, 2013, 6:58AM

I watched Sleepless In Seattle this past weekend with my boyfriend – hadn’t seen it in ages and it was *just* what the doctor ordered. Also! If you have never seen An Affair To Remember – watch it immediately! It will give you a whole new appreciation for Sleepless In Seattle. The scenes where the women all cry at the movie are much more justified! :)


fp jemma -January 29, 2013, 11:32AM

Hi Sarah,

I will for sure watch that movie! thanks for sharing xxxx

lilly -January 29, 2013, 12:53PM

ghost with demi moore

Bethie -January 29, 2013, 6:09PM

Harold and Maude is probably the only romantic comedy that I have ever liked.
I also like “Running on Empty”, although not completely a romantic movie it has quite a bit of romance in it and is probably the next closest thing to a “romantic movie” as I will ever get. Both are worth a watch if you’ve never seen them.

May -January 30, 2013, 10:18AM

Before Sunrise and Titanic – nothing better!

Monika -January 30, 2013, 9:03PM

Crazy, Stupid Love may be my favorite love movie. It’s funny and sweet without being cheesy–a tough balance to strike! I’ve also recently gone to see Silver Linings Playbook and loved that shows how love can be found in the unlikeliest of places, even when we’re having a hard time loving ourselves.

Britt -January 31, 2013, 8:48AM

I can’t believe nobody mentioned When Harry Met Sally! Best love story ever! I also agree with Rae on Funny Face, Such a great film (and such great eye candy)

Shannon -February 2, 2013, 10:47AM

Can’t buy me love!

Carolyn -February 2, 2013, 6:24PM

I love the movie Serendipity! It’s so cute and I’d like to believe that the universe does work in ways we can’t explain.

Alexie -February 3, 2013, 9:18PM

Anna Karenina , Blue Valentine , Last Night and Pride and Prejudice :)

Erin -February 3, 2013, 11:05PM

Amelie and Stardust!!!

Lauren -February 4, 2013, 4:37PM

500 days of Summer “I love her smile. I love her hair. I love her knees. I love how she licks her lips before she talks. I love her heart-shaped birthmark on her neck. I love it when she sleeps. “

Apple -February 4, 2013, 11:08PM

it just has to be P.S. I Love You! Wit, art, great music, friendship, and a love that just defies death? I’ve watched it a million times!!! +Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Gerard Butler, I could just go on and on, but really, need I say more?;)

Kelsey -February 5, 2013, 5:21PM


Carmen -February 5, 2013, 6:04PM

Love Actually. The Village ((watch it as a love story, not a horror movie, and I guarantee you’ll gain a newfound appreciation for it.)) Sixteen Candles.

Amanda -February 8, 2013, 10:44AM

What Dreams May Come! It is the only movie that ever made me cry and it still does every time I watch it. Such a beautiful movie.
Life is Beautiful! I named my dog after the main character, Guido : )
Tristan and Isolde- One of the strongest stories of a love true enough to tear countries apart.
Overboard- Super cheesy but I’ve been watching it since I was a wee one and it still makes me laugh every time I watch it (even though I have the entire movie memorized). And I love Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn together <3
A Knight's Tale- A great rom. com. with a little action thrown in. I love the medieval essence but with a more modern approach.

Mary -February 8, 2013, 3:41PM

My favorite is Practical Magic.. hands down!!

Debbie -February 12, 2013, 7:28AM

I could literally never list all of my favorites. I have at least 50 tied for #1! There are so many different styles of romantic movies I enjoy. Some of my favs have been mentioned by others. I will add some nobody has mentioned.
My favorite Meg Ryan rom com is “French Kiss”.
“Valentine’s Day” follows the same exact concept as “Love Actually” but in L.A. on V-Day: mega star loaded and comprised of numerous individual stories that are all linked by the end.
The best movie I have seen in a long time is an indie just released to DVD last week: “Celeste & Jesse Forever”. This one is much more cerebral but also hilarious – not a cheesy feel good Hollywood romance.

Ellie -February 12, 2013, 1:21PM

Pride & Prejudice forever and ever and ever… And Amelie!

Shelly VanB -February 15, 2013, 3:38PM

Love Actually has become our traditional Christmas movie but it’s a beautiful tapestry of love stories of all types!

Love Affair with Warren Beatty and Annette Benning…beautiful Katherine Hepburn….gorgeous movie.

My go to “what should I watch” rom com is Under the Tuscan Sun. When I feel blue or cold in winter or lonely for friends, this is the one I throw in.

Deborah -February 16, 2013, 7:48PM

The original, ‘The Ghost and Mrs. Muir’ and ‘The Quiet Man’ both oldies but goodies. Classics

Hai-Yen -May 14, 2013, 9:12AM

This “peanut butter jelly time”-toast loooooks yummy!
And my favourite love movie is SERENDIPITY :D
