10 Romantic Movies

I know that with Valentine's Day upon us, there are bound to be a lot of posts on this subject, but here's my contribution anyway. I'm chiming in a week before the big day so you have time to look at the movie trailers and to make sure you're able to get them from your library before someone else has the same idea!

Here are some of my favourite romantic movies, in no particular order:

1. A Walk in the Clouds (1995),  starring Keanu Reeves and Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, with Anthony Quinn and Debra Messing

2. Anna and the King (1999), starring Jodie Foster and Yun-Fat Chow

3. Sleepless in Seattle (1993), starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

4. You've Got Mail (1998), also starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

5. Titanic (1997), starring Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet

6. While You Were Sleeping (1995), starring Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman

7. Miss Potter (2006), starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor

8. Raising Helen (2004), starring Kate Hudson and John Corbett

9. Runaway Bride (1999), starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere

10. Becoming Jane (2007), starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy

And a bonus movie so you can get one your man will enjoy too :)

11. Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2007), starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Got any favourites that aren't on this list?


  1. Number 3 and 4 are my favourites on your list! "Sleepless in Seattle" and "You've Got Mail"! :)

  2. Ooooooh Chow Yun Fat….hubba hubba! For a truly epic romance, watch him in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. *sigh*

    And Greencard is a great romantic 80's flick if it's still out there!

  3. I really really liked Becoming Jane. :) I like a lot on your list, and I can't think of any others. You must have covered it. (Unless you count Tangled. Because I think that's a pretty awesome love story . . . or the first 5 minutes of Up.) :D
