  1. The most romantic movie I've ever seen? I have several that I love, but my favorite is still Sleepless in Seattle. It appeals to the hopeless romantic in me.

  2. Dirty Dancing. I fell in love with my husband to be watching that movie. Once outside the theatre, he started humming the main song, swept me into his arms, and danced me across the parking lot. Doesn't get much more romantic than that!

  3. For the most romantic movie, I guess I'd have to say Ghost with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.


  4. I have to say THE WAY WE WERE, because I remember how as a young girl watching this movie affected me strongly and the feelings stayed with me for a very long time. Sometimes love is not enough.

  5. I love lots of romantic movies, but the one I return to watch time and time again, would have to be LADYHAWKE with Rutger Hauer and Michelle Pfeiffer.

    Just perfect in every way.

  6. Hmmmm, I have so many movies that I love ( I have tons and tons in my own collection), but there are three that I would have to choose. Am I breaking any rules by listing three? I hope not. If so, sorry!

    1. Gone with the Wind ( I mean who could resists Scarlett and Rhett)

    2. Titanic ( Leonardo was sooo spirited)

    3. When Harry Met Sally -One of my favorites due to the fact that is was such a changing relationship.

  7. I have to say the most romantic movie I've ever seen would be Pretty Woman. :)

  8. I'm going with The Notebook. It's so passionate, and heartbreaking, and beautiful all at once.

    My runner-ups have already been mentioned, Dirty Dancing and Titanic.

  9. I also have to second the nomination for The Notebook! Ryan Goosling is to die for. My runner-up would have to be A Star is Born with Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristopherson

  10. Mine are a bit different. I'd go with Seven Brides for seven Brothers, and my all time favourite - Houseboat with Cary Grant and Sophia Loren.

  11. Ahhh... Bridges of Madison County, I love that movie. Another would be Serendipity, which can get a bit cheesy but it's oh so romantic...Top Gun and Dirty Dancing always figure of course!

  12. Well, I was going to say The Notebook, but since others have already mentioned it, I'm going to go with another Nicholas Sparks story and say A Walk To Remember. Love thise tear-jerkers...

  13. I think I'll go totally new direction but I think the most romantic movies I've ever seen would be
    The King and I – Yul Brynner and Deborah Kerr
    Also Anastasia – Yul Brynner with Ingrid Bergman
    I don't really have to say it now, do I?:) I'm a big fan of the man himself.. Yul Brynner. I mean he's really the only one I've ever seen that would suit the role of the typical alpha male we read about in romance books. don't you think?:)

  14. to part forever after just a few brief days of intimacy takes some doing but shows loyalty to her husband and marriage; this is my favorite movie starring Meryl Streep(Francesca) and Clint Eastwood(Robert) in 'The Bridges of Madison County'.

  15. I would choose Casablanca. A wonderful movie with a very dramatic, unforgettable ending.

  16. i love bridget jones movie
    the big easy i like a little action with a love story
    kim h

  17. The most romantic movie I have ever seen is Somersby with Jodie Foster and Richard Gere. I cried so hard at the end!

  18. The most romantic movie I have ever seen is Somersby with Jodie Foster and Richard Gere. I cried so hard at the end!

  19. I have to say...

    1.) Titanic - Leonardo was excedingly hot and it makes me cry everytime I see it.

    2.) Gone With the Wind - I'm a sucker for the classics.


    3.) Casa Blanca - I don't really know why. It's just one of those romanctic movies that make my heart flutter. lol

  20. OMG, Mona, Yul Brynner... what a man, yes he is definitely to-die-for Sheikh material.

    My favorite is Room with a View. Slow, lush and gorgeous, witty, with that odd sidelong quality that some British romance has, almost denial, with such simmering passion underneath. And Julian Sands ... I mean, really....

    Chocolat was lovely, too. Is it a romance? I don't know but it was romantic.

    I love Shirley Valentine too, though I guess that's more of a redemption/education plot more than a romance...?


  21. When I think romantic movies, I think the ones that make me cry when it looks like all is lost. GONE WITH THE WIND, for sure, and a more contemporary movie, LOVE AND BASKETBALL.

  22. The most memorable and romantic movie I have ever seen is Cinema Paradiso. It is heartwrenching and beautiful.

  23. An amazingly romantic movie that resounded with me is Mostly Martha. Well done and original.

  24. A romantic movie that I will never forget is Il Postino. With Pablo Neruda and his ability to play a part I am totally mesmerized.

  25. I adore the movie, An Affair to Remember. This is one movie that is a classic in everyway.

  26. My most romantic movie would be Dr. Zhivago. That movie tears you up and never lets go.

  27. My movie would be Sabrina. Excellent and very romantic.

  28. Hey Helen,
    Glad we share the same opinion about the man.. he was truly something else:) Another movie I find really romantic was Casino Royale... regardless of all the killing and fighting the love story between Daniel Craig and Eva Green was very touching. Sure we couldn't call the whole movie romantic but there were a few scenes incredibly romantic between the two of them.

  29. Mine would have to be 'Brief Encounter'. Although it was made 62 years ago, I still find it tugs at the heart strings.

    This black and white movie, set amongst the back drop of 'post war Britain' and the age of steam amongst the couples' moral dilemma of whether to leave their husband and wife, is so tragic. It's a sad ending and yet it's not, in so much as they both think that doing the right thing counts even if it's at their own expense.

    You can view a couple of clips here:

  30. I'd have to say the most romantic movie ever is Ghost with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. He cared so much for her, it almost made you beg for that happy ending, where he gets reborn or something. My 2nd favorite is the Lake. So sweet!

  31. Oh boy. I have a lot. But my favs are:

    "The Last of the Mohicans" with Daniel Day-Lewis (Oh man, there were SO many sacrifices for love in that movie!)

    "Pride & Prej" (BBC version)


    "While You were Sleeping"

  32. 1. The Notebook
    2. Walk to Remember
    3. City of Angels
    These are some of my faves.

  33. The most romantic movie i've ever seen would have to be Reese Witherspoon's Just Like Heaven. There's something about a kiss bringing her back from the brink of death that was so amazing. And the black moments was fantastic - just when you thought they had it all worked out, she had no idea who he was. Loved it!!

  34. I have to agree with Jennifer Shirk -
    Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis and P&P BBC version. Also, a very lovely and funny movie - The Sure Thing - with John Cusak and Daphne Zuniga and who can forget An Officer & A Gentleman with Richard Gere (sigh!)

  35. Dirty Dancing
    While You Were Sleeping
    Sleepless in Seattle

  36. The most romantic movie I've ever seen is the Japanese movie I Love You (Ai rabu yu).

  37. I loved Roman Holiday with A. Hepburn

  38. Somewhere in Time with Christopher Reeve. Going back in time to find true love and leaving his modern life behind for the lady of his dreams. It's the most romantic modern day movie that I've seen in a long time. Mads:)

  39. Great prize pack and I like the question :)

    Mines are:

    #1 Just Like Heaven
    #2 Messege In The Bottle
    #3 A Walk To Remember
    #4 Love & Basketball
