Favorite Romantic Movies

In honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day ... I give you some of my favorite romantic movies.

While You Were Sleeping

What's not to love? It's sweet, it's funny, it's romantic.

The Princess Bride

Again, funny, sweet and romantic. Did I mention funny?

Ever After

Hmmm... funny, sweet, romantic. I'm sensing a theme.

Notting Hill

Yeah.. sweet, funny and romantic again

The Saint

Okay, not sweet (exactly) or funny (really) but definitely romantic.

What about you? What movies would you add to my list? Keep in mind, I have to have a Happy Ever After (so don't suggest "Casablanca" or "West Side Story", please).

Happy Valentine's Day!

    Gosh, the list is just too long... but doesn't it bring a sigh to your lips just thinking about them??


  2. Oh man! Heck...Oh MEN!!! LOL! You had me at "While You Were Sleeping"! LOVE that movie- and made in Chicago-my hometown. My all-time favorite was also made in Chicago, "Return To Me". At first you'll cry, and then fall "Truly, Madly, Deeply" in love! Also: "Moonstruck"-you'll laugh AND love! "Roxanne"-the rapier wit of Steve Martin! Does anyone remember "Sandcastles" with Jan-Michael Vincent? I was a teen with a mad crush on him back in the day. Thanks for the sweet videos Marianne!

  3. Oh my... Moonstruck and Roxanne!!! I loved those too! And I can remember watching "While You Were Sleeping" over and over again on one of those 24hr pay per view passes about 12 years ago. I was working as a graphic artist at the time and I was on an 11th hour deadline. The movie playing behind me as I worked made me so relaxed, that my client said that he could feel the romantic vibe in my work. Talk about subliminal! I'm just glad I was working on a package design for a vacation club that catered to newly weds at the time!!! LOL!

  4. You certainly chose the perfect muse Marianne-lol!

  5. Great green toad frog, there are so many. I love "Enchanted" and "Maid of Honor." But yeah, I see that McDreamy theme too.

    Two I'll watch over and over again for the final scenes alone are "An Officer And A Gentleman" and "Pretty Woman."

    An oldie I've always adored for reasons a psychologist could probably write a volume about is "The American President."

    Great post, Marianne. It sort of puts me in the mood to curl up with some popcorn. Heck, I might even tie my hubby to the sofa to make him watch with me. Nah, the last part's just a fantasy. Hubby would chew his way through the rope and escape........

    Quacking Alone

  6. Nobody yet has mentioned Much Ado about Nothing, with Kenneth Brannagh. It's funny and wonderful and I keep replaying it...

  7. Good choices! I've seen Moonstruck and Roxanne and both are fabulous. Jean, I have to admit to never seeing "Much Ado.." which is odd because I love Shakespear AND Kenneth Brannagh. Will have to remedy that!
