The Best Romantic movies ever

most romantic movie ever

Attention men, here come the chick flicks. Perhaps it wouldn`t hurt to have a look at the best romantic movies to watch, though. You might impress your dream girl with these ten best romantic comedies.

Top 10 Romantic Movies – The Ultimate Ranking

 

15. Four weddings and a funeral

Hugh Grant`s breakthrough performance is a very sweet movie. His chemistry with Andie McDowell (one of the most beautiful women of all time by the way) is great and makes this one of my favourite romantic films.

Romance score: 85%

14. Pretty Woman

The 90s have been a pretty good decade for romantic comedy movies and Pretty Woman (1990) is probably the most well-known and most mentioned of them. Certainly because of the charming and good-looking lead characters – played by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. But also because of bringing the taboo of prostitution to the big screen in form of a light-hearted romantic comedy.

13. Sleepless in Seattle

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks were so lovely together in this that a few years later they were reunited in a very similar romance – “You`ve got mail”

12. Crazy, Stupid, Love

No. 12 of the best romantic comedy movies scores with lots of star power. Chick magnet Ryan Gosling (not photoshopped), Steve Careel and Emma Stone are just the tip of the iceberg. This flick clearly focusses on the comedy a little more than the romance. And there is lots of comedy when Gosling`s character tries to make a womanizer out of Carrel`s character.

11. The Notebook

Every woman loves this movie and every man ha… ugh is a little bored while watching. A clear sign that this must be one of the most romantic movies ever!

10. Ghost

Chick magnet Patrick Swayze is murdered, then tries as a ghost to save his girlfriend from the same fate. This story is very close to kitsch, but the three chief characters -Whoopi Goldberg helps as a friendly psychic- act nicely and made this flick a hit. One of the top romantic movies of the 90s.

9. Picture Perfect

One of my favourites among the best romantic comedies with the lovely Jennifer Aniston has to be in this ranking of course, since she is born for the best romantic movies. So Picture Perfect thrives on Aniston`s charisma plus it offers nice dialogues and a heartwarming lovestory.

8. What women want

We can roughly divide it in two parts. At first Mel Gibson is befallen by the cruel fate of being able to hear what women think after an incident in the bathtub. After the first scock he uses this gift to climb the job ladder and hunt after sexy women. So that`s part one and its ingenious. Finally we know what crosses women`s minds throughout the day. Part two begins with the upcoming romance to his colleague and the ladykiller`s guilty conscience joins in. That`s when it becomes a 100% tearjerker and the humour is completely gone, although the lead characters gift offered so much more potential. What a shame! But “What women want” is still among the best romantic movies and certainly worth watching.

7. 500 Days of Summer

This little romance was a surprise hit, starring the lovely Zoey Deschanel and shooting star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Try it…you`ll enjoy it and probably rate it as one of the top romantic movies.

6. Friends with benefits

The topic of man and woman trying to be friends has been covered before, for example in “When Harrymet Sally” and countless other movies. But this version is very refreshing probably due to the great lead actors Mila Kunis and multi talent Justin Timberlake.

5. Hitch

Comedy giants Will Smith (Fresh prince of Bel-Air) and Kevin James (King of Queens) united in romantic comedies, could this go wrong? The answer: No! The date doctor supports shy men to approach their dream girl.  Meanwhile the expert himself has trouble, because a great woman discovers the secret of his job. Both lovestories are lovely and genuinely written, inbetween there is lots of time for comedy, which had to be expected with Smith and James. Mission accomplished, lovely romantic comedy.

4. The Bodyguard

Kevin Costner guards Whitney Houston and becomes a superstar. This is dripping with kitsch, the bodyguard action is reduced to a minimum. But as a chick flick all this works perfectly and has to be regarded as one of the most romantic movies of all time. When Mrs. Houston sinks into Mr. Costners arms whilst chanting “I will always love you” there is no dry eye in the house.

3. Titanic

Many would claim Kate & Leo`s adventures the ultimate lovestory and number one of the top romantic movies. I don`t see it in the top spot of the ranking though. However the record-breaking film about the sinking of the Titanic has to be in the list. Besides powerful pictures with the huge cruiser sinking into the icy sea it offers an epic lovestory between an unhappy, upper-class lady and a poor, uneducated boy. DiCaprio was reduced to this role for a long time. Luckily he overcame this and is now considered as one of the strongest character actors of our time.

2. Music & Lyrics

Rarely any romantic comedies caught me as quick as “Musics & lyrics” and it almost reached the number one spot of the best romantic movies. It starts with a music video in typical 80s style, Hugh Grant with very special hairdo chants an unbelievably catchy tune while performing boygroup dance moves. Believe me, these threee minutes alone are worth watching this movie. Who witnessed the decade of bad hair, has to watch it anyway, for everyone else I strongly recommend it. So the charming Brit plays a boygroup star from the 80s, who`s career is on its way down. A chance for a comeback opens up when a hot pop princess asks him to write her a song. With the help of his poetically gifted flower girl he approaches the task, which leads to heart-warming, funny and musically ambitious moments with lots of 80s-reminiscences.

1. Love actually

The definition of romantic movie! Twelve cleverly entangled lovestories around Christmas in London. Whether it is the dancing prime minister Hugh Grant who fancies one of his housekeepers, or a delivery man flying to Minnesota hoping for better chances with hot girls there, all stories are lovely, funny and touching at the same time. In addition director Curtis comes up with everyone of distinction in British cinema. All this is accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack. Best of the best romantic movies to watch and also A MUST-SEE on Christmas!
