My Favorite Movies About Love & Romance

Just like true love, the perfect romance movie is hard to find. Is there even such a thing? One thing I love about movies is that a million viewers can view the same movie and each walk away feeling something different. Below is a list of my personal favorite movies about love and romance.

10. Runaway Bride (1999)
09. Guess Who (2005)
08. The Thomas Crown Affair (1999)
07. The Holiday (2006)
06. An Officer and A Gentleman (1982)
05. Message in a Bottle (1999)
04. She’s The One (1996)
03. Cousins (1989)
02. True Romance (1993)
01. The Time Travelers Wife (2009)

How about you? Did your favorite make my list? Have one to suggest? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

    Love The Thomas Crown Affair and An Officer and A Gentleman. In fact, any movie with Debra Winger is a favorite of mine. This is a good list. I haven’t seen The Time Traveler’s Wife but it’s been recommended by many.

  2. My favorites are Jane Eyre and Pride & Prejudice (the BBC versions of both).

    I really love the Notebook – very romantic.

  4. I never saw the pilot’s wider but loved
    The book. Great list!

  5. I haven’t seen your #1, #3 or #9, so thanks, I always like to add to the list. A few of my all-time favorites not on your list (but I like all the others you mention): Love Actually, The Way We Were, My Life as a House, Shall We Dance? and more recently, I liked New Year’s Eve and Life as We Know it. Love a good movie about love.

    Rajean, Life as a House is one of all time favorite books and movies. I also LOVE Life As We Know It and have probably seen it a dozen times, thanks to cable.
