Top Ten Romance Movies

Updated on April 2, 2012

We love going to the movies and we watch them on TV and on DVD for the ones that were before our time!

I’m afraid it is hard to rank them from one to ten irrespective of the category, so I am just sharing some of the movies I believe were very romantic and great love stories. Some are pure romance, some are great story lines with love inevitably a part of them. Most of these we have watched multiple times because they seem timeless...

- A breathtaking setting, a haunting soundtrack, powerful performances by Daniel Day Lewis and Madeleine Stowe make The Last of the Mohicans probablya personal favourite. You have to watch this highly intense drama and love story if you like movies set during colonial American wartime. ‘I will come back for you’ says Daniel and then jumps downs the waterfall, leaving you with goosebumps! Has some violent war scenes though. (1992)

- I think Michelle Pfeiffer is so beautiful and so talented. Along with George Clooney, they starred in ‘One Fine Day’ and you’ll look forward to rainy days thinking of this movie! Sammy her little boy defined making ‘fish faces’ so well while waiting for his mum to wrap up a client meeting. (1996)

- Kate & Leopold – We love Meg Ryan! Not believing but wanting to believe and just living in the love for the moment or rather weekend. The blast from the past role suits Hugh Jackman immensely and the two make another uncanny yet lovely pair in this sci-fi mix romantic story. (2001) We even liked ‘Australia’ starring Hugh and Nicole Kidman.

- A multi cast movie with great actors like Anthony Hopkins, Brad Pitt, Julia Ormond make Legends of the Fall a must watch! Intense emotional display and a super story line make it a heart renching watch but nevertheless, we love it for the fabulous setting, direction and acting of the various characters involved in the story. (1994)

- Julia Ormond takes me to another funny and romantic film pairing her opposite Harrison Ford and Greg Kinnear. ‘Paris is always a good idea’. We have seen Sabrina so many times and it makes you literally urge Harrison Ford to please loosen up and go get your girl! (1995)

- It is Meg Ryan again in You’ve Got Mail. Love her persona, her antics, her short hair, her lazy strides, her wardrobe...and isn’t it life’s most treasured gift to dish out to us what we fear the most? Tom Hanks is simply amazing and so funny when he learns the truth about Shopgirl’s identity. One can laugh over and over on the F-O-X scene. (1998)

- Serendipity is another fabulous romantic film starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. A glove, a dollar currency note and a book called ‘Love in the time of Cholera’ is around which the story centres about two people who let destiny decide if they are meant to be together. How many of us are crazy to try this one?! Beautifully made , this one is another repeat watch. (2001)

- Bridget Jones Diary – we love the goofy Renee Zellweger and this one makes you hate Hugh Grant even though we love him too! Colin Firth in his no nonsense lawyer role is fantastic and the brawl on the roadside with Geri Helliwal screaming ‘its raining men’ in the background is one of the best parts of this romantic comedy. Part II wasn’t bad either. Who makes a blue coloured soup? Ha!(2001)


- Casablanca- Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman are simply magic in this love tale set during WW II. You’ve probably heard of the famous tune that Sam plays when IIsa walks into Rick’s nightclub. The last aerodrome scene leaves one shocked, how could he? A famous tagline “of all the gin joints in all the towns in all of the world, she walks into mine’. (1942) Roman Holiday, Come September – love these Black & White classic romances too.

- As Good As It Gets- Well deserved Oscars for Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt here, the two are simply class actors who at first would seem to make an odd pair but soon together they bring the house down ; he with his quirks and she with her short fuse. Love the gargling scene and the date at the fancy restaurant.(remember ‘say something nice’) Add Greg Kinnear to the party and you have a wholesome movie making you laugh all the way to the end. Not all of us have ‘normal boyfriends’!! (1997)

Having penned down some of our favourites, I think Sandra Bullock as well as Hugh Grant have done actually quite a few funny romantic movies like The Proposal, Two Weeks Notice, Nine Months and Notting Hill.

As I write these down, more names come to my mind such as Dr Zhivago, Love Story, Out of Africa, Bridges of Madison County, The Horse Whisperer.....
