We put together a list of our all-time favorite romantic movies to help narrow down your choice a bit. There’s a good chance that you’ve seen at least some of these before but they’re all so great that you can watch them over and over again.
The Note Book: The love story of Noah and Allison that beats the odds to last a lifetime will have you in tears while your heart melts. A rollercoaster of passion and heartache, these two young lovers will have you rooting for them and cheering them on.
A Walk to Remember: The unlikely pairing of Landon and Jamie and the story of their love is a beautiful lesson for all of us. This is more than just your regular high school romance flick.
Me Before You: Louisa’s cheerful nature is in stark contrast to Will’s cynical outlook on life, but maybe Lou is exactly what Will needs to heal his unseen injuries.
Love Story: Where do we begin? One of the greatest and most heartbreaking love stories ever told, Oliver and Jenny’s tale will leave you teary-eyed at its conclusion.
PS I Love You: With a love as strong as Gerry and Holly’s, a little thing like death is not going to get in their way. This beautiful story will leave you heartbroken but with hope.
Pretty Woman: A movie that has gone down as a classic tells the story of how a love blossoms between a businessman and a hooker and how they both rescue each other.
Titanic: Titanic is sure to leave even the most hard-hearted crying by the end. The movie’s appeal has less to do with a sinking ship and more to do with the connection between Rose and Jack.
Sleepless in Seattle: This sweet little romcom will have you going 'awww'. The movie set in the 90s came-alive with the on-screen chemistry of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. And if Sam and Annie’s characters aren’t enough for you to love the movie, little Jonah will win you over for sure.
The Holiday: Set during Christmas time, two complete strangers Iris and Amanda do a house swap across continents to try and get over their guy problems. Little do they know that what was supposed to be a simple holiday was going to be a life-changing experience for both.
Brokeback Mountain: Not your traditional love story, but just as poignant as any heterosexual romance. The story of gay cowboy lovers in an age where such relationships are unacceptable sends a strong message of love and heartache.
Wall-E: Who said that only humans are allowed to fall in love? Wall-E and Eve (Eve-Ah) show us that love transcends all boundaries and even robots can get attached. The animated children’s movie also bears a message of how too much technology can make us forget our humanity.
Romeo + Juliet: Arguably the greatest love story of all time, Shakespeare’s tale of the star-crossed lovers was reenacted in the 1996 film adaptation of the play. The story was moved to the 90s but retained the original plot and introduced a whole new generation to Shakespeare-style English.
That’s our pick for the best love movies of our time. We hope you like our selection and give them a try if you haven’t already. Get cozy on the couch, grab some hot chocolate and just press play.
