10 Underrated Romantic Movies You Must Watch like About Time

Updated on February 2, 2018

Romance movies focus on passion, emotion, and the affectionate romantic involvement of 2 souls and the journey that their genuinely strong, true and pure romantic love takes them through dating, courtship or marriage.

It could be love at first sight. It could be obsessive love or spiritual love, forbidden love or platonic love, sexual and passionate love or sacrificial love.

Whatever them a romantic movie has, it brings that cute smiles to our faces so many times.

About Time is a romantic comedy-drama film about a young man with the special ability to time travel who tries to change his past in order to improve his future.

While the film hardly received any negative reviews, most of the reviews were just above average. About Time never received the accolades it deserved.

So here I am bringing to you a list of good romantic movies which are so underrated:

They still hang out with each other as best friends every day, with Jesse living and working as a freelance graphic artist in Celeste's guest house. The separation and imminent divorce was largely Celeste's idea, she a successful social trend analyst, recently published author, and co-principle of a media consulting firm with her gay business partner, Scott. Driven Celeste could not be married to someone as lackadaisical toward work and earning money as Jesse, who is in no hurry to get more permanent and stable work even in his field, preferring his recreational activities and largely living off what Celeste earned. Their mutual friends, seeing how happy they still are whenever they are together, cannot understand why they are headed toward divorce. Jesse would still prefer to remain married to Celeste, he still seeing her as his soul mate. Things start to change in their relationship when Jesse, seeing the reality of the situation, is the first to move on from them as a couple, entering into a relationship with a woman named Veronica. Out of circumstance in the situation with Veronica, Jesse slowly transitions into being that mature human being that Celeste so wanted in him for their marriage. As such, Celeste works on two parallel tracks: to get Jesse back; or to enter into a relationship with someone as happy as Jesse and Veronica appear to be. Celeste may get a clearer picture of her own life in dealing with one of her new clients, teen pop sensation Riley Banks, a seemingly vapid and only moderately talented singer.
