Top 10 Romantic Movies Of All Time

Tuesday, March 8 by Dee Jones

So what are the top 10 romantic movies of all time? Well, it depends on who you ask, and they types of movies they like in general. Do they like Hollywood classics? More modern romantic comedies? Or are they into sweeping historical pieces? No matter what your taste, there are some romantic movies that you can expect to find on most lists. Here are 10 of the most romantic movies of all time.  

  1. "A Walk in the Clouds" (1995). A soldier just back from the war (World War II) meets a young woman on a bus. As it turns out she’s on her way home, pregnant, and unmarried, which won’t go over well with her very old fashioned father. So the young soldier, played by Keanu Reeves, agrees to pose as her husband. And, in the midst of the deception, love blooms. On top of being a very romantic movie, A Walk in the Clouds is also a visual treat.
  2. "An Affair to Remember" (1957). Two attractive individuals, played by Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, meet on a cruise, and spend most of their time charming each other. Thus begins a romantic movie so well-known that it is actually mentioned in another movie on the list.
  3. "Casablanca" (1942). What list of the most romantic movies of all time would be complete without this classic starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman? It’s a movie about love and sacrifice, and should be seen multiple times by any lover of romantic movies.
  4. "Ghost" (1990). Starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, this romantic movie became something of a surprise hit when it was released. And it’s really no surprise. The movie’s message about the power of love is one that will resonate with most viewers.  
  5. "Gone With the Wind" (1939). To some people, Gone with the Wind is the very definition of “romantic movie.” And the film itself is just slightly more interesting than the drama behind its making.
  6. "Pretty Woman" (1990). For many people, this tale of a hooker and the ruthless, cold-hearted businessman who find love just goes to show that anyone can have a romantic, fairytale ending. And looking like Julia Roberts and Richard Gere probably wouldn’t hurt.
  7. "Sabrina" (1954). A ruthless businessman, played by Humphrey Bogart, tries to keep his playboy brother away from Sabrina, played by Audrey Hepburn. Not because he’s interested in her himself, but because his brother’s pending marriage will strengthen their family’s business. Of course, the businessman spends so much time with Sabrina that he falls for her himself. Isn’t that the way it goes in romantic movies?
  8. "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993). This romantic movie uses another film from the list, An Affair to Remember, as a sort of backdrop. In Sleepless in Seattle, a single father (Tom Hanks) calls into a radio show and ends up talking about his love for his deceased wife. And that’s all it takes for our heroine (Meg Ryan) to start falling in love with him.
  9. "Titanic" (1997). Despite being plagued by problems during filming—like going over budget just a little bit—Titanic became a runaway blockbuster smash hit. And reaffirmed that the world will never get tired of a good love story.
  10. "When Harry Met Sally" (1989). Can a man and a woman just be friends? Of course. Just not the leads in this movie, where two close friends (Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan) end up falling in love. This romantic movie will tug at the heart strings will tug at the heart strings of anyone who has found themselves having feeling for someone who was supposed to be “just a friend.”
