The 5 Most Romantic Movies Ever Made
You might call them chick flicks, but really, almost everyone, including guys, loves a good romantic movie.
You know, those great movies where boy meets girl, boy loses girl, and boy and girl live happily ever after (sometimes)? I know snuggling on the couch and losing myself in a love story is one of my favorite ways to spend an evening.
Here are five films I can watch over and over again because they’re some of the most romantic movies ever made:
The Notebook (2004)
Some of the most touching of love stories starts with a lifetime of tender commitment. In this Ryan Gosling film, a husband and wife share memories of the past despite a worsening state of mental illness. Like many romances, this movie focuses on star-crossed lovers- Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun. After a fun night of carnival rides and cotton candy, these two unseeming youngsters find themselves in a whirlwind romantic journey. Only after years apart do the two reconnect in an ever lasting embrace.
Alas, we all know from the historic tale this is one film that can’t end in a happy ending. But between the magical moments and starry-eyed embraces shared by Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, we love it anyway.
Patrick Swayzee and Demi Moore are enchanting in this love-never-dies thriller. While the haunting threads of Unchained Melody ripple through the room, one of the most beautiful love scenes ever filmed plays out in front of you. The touch of comedic flair added by Whoopi Goldberg, the plot to kill Demi, and Swayzee’s out of this world efforts to save her are bonuses.
Love Story (1970)
If you ever need a good cry, this is the movie to watch. Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw shared a beautiful romance, overcame formidable obstacles, and seemed were headed for the traditional happy ending, but that would be too easy. The catch phrase from the movie is “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” and you’ll understand why if you watch this film that makes every person who sees it cry like a baby.
Gone with the Wind (1939)
It was often hard to decide whether Scarlett O’Hara and Rhet Butler loved or hated each other but it’s been said that there’s a thin line between love and hate. Their saga carries them through the Civil War and its aftermath as they battle both the hardships of war and the magnetic passion that draws them together. The music, the cinematography, the undeniable raw chemistry between the characters, and the dynamic storyline combine to make this an unforgettable movie about recognizing love too late. Frankly, my dear, I do give a damn about this movie.
Too many movies could have earned a place on this list to name them all. Here are a few of other movies I wanted to include:
When Harry Met Sally
An Officer and a Gentleman
Lady and the Tramp (the spaghetti eating scene is too charming)
You’ve Got Mail
While You Were Sleeping
The Philadelphia Story
And the list could go on and on.
I’m sure each of you has your own favorite romantic movies. Which ones make you sigh, which ones make you cry? Why not share them with us?
