Top 10 Romantic Movies all the Time

Titanic (1998)

The most expensive movie made in history! Though the story line is age old! Rich girl meets poor boy and then a happily ever after… but a nineties package! With the luxurios Titanic forming the background, Rose (Kate Winslet) falls in love with the lovable tramp Jack (Leonardo Di Caprio). Playing the man who unleashes her spirit as Jack plays the gallant hero.

A Room With a View (1986)

If you thought the British upper class at the turn of the century stuffy and unromantic, think again. While on a trip to Florence, a head strong young woman (Helena Bonham Carter) meets an unconventional man (Julian Sands), and they share a passionate kiss. The problem? Her stuffy fiancé (Daniel Day Lewis).

Pretty Woman (1990)

A cold businessman (Richard Gere) picks up a Hollywood hooker (Julia Roberts) with the requisite heart of gold and a great pair of thigh high boots and takes her back to the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Roberts is so appealing, you root for the moneyman, to realize he wants to be her knight in shining armor.

Bridges of Madison Country (1995)

A faithful adaptation of the best selling novel by Robert James Waller. A National Geographic photographer ) Clint Eastwood) in assignment in lowa brings animal passion to the life of a bored, married farmwife (Meryl Streep). They share a sloooow dance in the kitchen.....and her cozy four-poster bed.

Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

Talk about a long-distance relationship! A Chicago journalist (Meg Ryan) decides a Seattle widower (Tom Hanks) is her destiny after hearing him mourn his dear departed wife on a late-night radio show. And the film within the film (the classic An Affair to Remember) makes Sleepless twice the tearjerker.

Casablanca (1942)

The most famous love triangle in cinematic history. Time has gone by since Rick (Humphrey Bogart) and IIsa (Ingrid Bergman) met in Paris. Now she and her husband Victor (Paul Henreid) come to Rick’s Cafe Americain in Casablanca in search of exit papers. But don’t worry – Rick and IIsa will always have Paris.

Dr. Zhivago (1965)

This story of a doctor (Omar Sharif) in love with two women – one his brunette wife (Geraldine Chaplin), the other a blonde nurse (Julie Christie) - is an epic in every sense: It was directed by David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia), it’s set against the Russian Revolution, and it clocks in a more than three hours.

Ghost (1990)

A chick flick if there was one. Okay, her boyfriend (Patrick Swayze) is a spirit but that doesn’t stop a grieving mortal ( Demi Moore who possesses an amazing ability to tear up on command) from communicating with him via a storefront medium (a scene-stealing Whoopi Goldberg). Magical.

Shakespeare in Love (1999)

You don't have to be scared of Shakespeare anymore! Shakespeare in Love is about a man who wrote the world's most passionate play Romeo and Juliet! Gwenyth Paltrow in an Oscar winning performance plays Will Shakespeare's muse who helps him overcome his writer's block! Maybe one of the most sensitive re-telling of the world's greatest playwright.
