C'est L'Amour: My Favorite Romantic Films

I know it's after Valentines Day so technically all the lovey dovey stuff should be done and over right? Well.....not on my blog.....nope nope nope. I actually stole this post idea (I do that a lot it seems) from my gal Stephanie--her guest post on Chelsea's blog made me remember all of the romance-type movies I like to watch and I thought I would share them with you!!


Pride and Prejudice--Hello Mr. Darcy, will you please come woo me?? I loved the book Pride and Prejudice since I was a little girl and even though I could never manage to get through the six or so hour long version of the book, I think Pride and Prejudice is pretty much the most romantic film (or book) out there. 

Pearl Harbor--Confession about this move, my husband just introduced me to Pearl Harbor last year. Gasp! I'm really not sure how I'd never watched it before because within the first five minutes I fell in love with it, although there is a teensy part of me that wishes that Josh Hartnett's character Danny had gotten the girl in the end. 

The Proposal--I have a weakness for romantic comedies and this Sandra Bullock classic is one of the best. I mean after all doesn't everybody wish they could blackmail Ryan Reynolds into marrying us? No, just teenage me? This love story is super funny with just the right amount of sweet.

A Walk to Remember--Preacher's daughter reforms town bad boy, they fall in love, get married and live happily ever after. Landon and Jamie don't end up getting to live their happily ever after but I think that's what makes their love story so special. Again a movie that makes me cry buckets.

Sweet Home Alabama--Incidentally this film was one of Stephanie's choices too! Again it's a fairly recent favorite of mine. I love the backstory behind the characters, Melanie especially. The banter, the sweet syrupy Southern accents--such a cute movie to watch. 


The Notebook--Another adaptation from Nicholas Sparks...I loved the book and I adored the movie. It's not so much the young love of Noah and Allie that's so hold-your-breath romantic to me but the love that keeps Noah by his wife's side even when most of the time she doesn't even remember him. Yes, it might be a little corny but it's the best kind of corny. 

Life as We Know It--Brought together by baby takes on a whole new meaning when Holly and Eric suddenly have their god-child dropped in their lap after a horrible accident. This movie is kind of light and fluffy compared to some others on this list but it's sweet, funny, and is a definite win for unlikely romances. 

The Prince and Me--This movie reminds me of the love story of Will and Kate which is probably why it ranks in my favorites. Prince Eddie travels to Wisconsin (where I lived for a short time) for some un-royal fun and ends up falling in love with a small-town farm girl with big dreams. That's exactly the recipe for a great Cinderella-type romance. 

The Bounty Hunter--Two reasons to watch this movie--Gerard Butler and Jennifer Anniston. They play a couple whose marriage seems to have failed but is rekindled through unlikely circumstances, namely being chased by criminals. Its pretty much the best of comedy combined with just the right amount of heart. 

Top Gun--Alright so this one might be a stretch to call a romance but I'd still vote for it. Ok so Tom Cruise, military uniforms, and fighter jets may influence my decision to include Top Gun in my top ten. However, it's been my favorite girl's night movie since I was a teen so I figured it merited an honorable mention!

What are some of your favorite romance films? How many of these have you watched and what did you think of them?
