If you’re looking for a date movie, the following 10 most romantic movie scenes will surely get your girl in the mood. Of course, this plan could also backfire and show your beloved exactly how big of a jerk you are. If that’s the case, then this list of the most romantic movie scenes will at least give you some ideas about how to win her back. Check it out.

  1. “10 Things I Hate About You” (Ledger singing): If Hollywood has taught us anything, it’s that one sure fire way to be romantic is to make a complete fool out of yourself. In this scene, Ledger’s character performs Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You” in front of the entire girls soccer team. The song and dance number lands him in detention, but not before winning Julia Stiles heart, along with every girl in America.
  2.  “Casablanca” (end): “Here’s looking at you, kid." This is the most famous line from one of the most famous love stories of all time, and the hero doesn’t even get the girl. Humphrey Bogart’s famous words come out just when his love is leaving him. This scene goes to show that sometimes, if you love someone, you have to let them go.
  3. “Sleepless in Seattle” (Empire State): How many times can we watch Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan fall in love? Probably as many times as Hollywood will let us. Still, this is one of the most movie scenes in all of chick-flic-dom, and we’re happier for it.
  4. “The Wedding Singer” (plane): This scene makes the list of the most romantic move scenes for several reasons. First, it’s a genuinely romantic scene. Second, it’s from a genuinely funny movie. Third, "Growing Old with You" was a good song. Fourth, everyone loves the 80’s and Billy Idol.
  5. "The Notebook” (all): Your girlfriend will make you watch this movie, and there’s a reason why. Every other scene in this flick could probably make this list of the most romantic movie scenes. This movie is in the same category as Nutella for it’s effect on women. The most romantic scene is probably at the end, where the old lady finally remembers who she is and who she loves.
  6. “Ghost” (pottery): Swayze certainly had a way with the ladies. In this scene, he and Demi More shape some pottery together. In the process, they shape our hearts, like, for real.
  7. “Jerry McGuire” (end): We can thank this movie for two of the most over-quoted movie lines of all time. Yes, this film gave us “you complete me” and “you had me at hello,” but it gives them to us in a most romantic way. For that, “Jerry McGuire” makes the list.
  8. “Say Anything” (boombox):  Let’s ignore the fact that this scene is really short and doesn’t do much for the plot, it’s still one of the most romantic movies scenes of all time. In this scene, John Cusack stands outside his lover’s window with a boombox hoisted over his head. This is one of the single most iconic images in 80’s films, and easily the most romantic movies scene of the decade.
  9. “Pretty Woman” (limo): Here he is, the knight in shining armor. Lovely Julia Roberts gets to live happily ever after. This scene is the perfect ending to this modern fairy tale.
  10. “An Officer and a Gentleman" (kiss): This is another knight in shining armor scene. What woman doesn’t want to be swept away in Richard Gere’s arms? The fact that “Up Where We Belong” plays in the background solidifies this scene as one of the most romantic scenes in movie history.
