Top 20 Romance Movies

8. Pretty Woman (1990)

good romantic movies

This romantic comedy about the prostitute and the rich man was the perfect modern day fairytale for the 1990s. Wealthy businessman Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) hires Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts) to be his escort to several business functions. During the course of the week, a relationship begins to form between them, and Edward ultimately turns Vivian from a down and out prostitute into a lady of high society. It’s basically My Fair Lady again. Or Cinderella.

7. Titanic (1997)

James Cameron’s epic romantic weepy about the sinking of the Titanic, and a passionate love affair, became the highest grossing film of all time and sealed Leonardo DiCaprio’s place in heartthrob history. It’s the late 1990s and 101 year old Rose DeWitt (Kate Winslet) recounts how she was once a wealthy woman engaged to be married who fell in love with a poor street artist, Jack Dawson (DiCaprio), but lost him to the freezing cold waters when the Titanic was destroyed.

6. An Affair To Remember (1957)

Despite being engaged to other people, they have a brief romance, and decide to meet each other again at the top of the Empire State Building in six months time. However, Terry is injured in an accident on the day of the meeting, preventing her from making it. Nicky walks away believing that she is happily married and no longer loves him. Eventually, the truth comes to light.

5. An Officer And A Gentleman (1982)

most romantic movies online

Richard Gere makes it onto our list again in this 1982 romantic drama about a young man with an attitude problem learning the value of love, friendship and personal growth as he trains in Navy Flight School. The final scene where Gere carries Debra Winger into the sunset like a knight in shining armour is one of the strongest romantic images in cinema.

    Wow, hard to believe you missed the amazing 1968 adaptation of Romeo and Juliet by Zeffirelli with Olivia Hussey. In my whole life I will never forget seeing that film at 15. She was truly stunning with no fake tan or fake bosom or fake anything. She was perfect. And he…well God could not have sculpted a more amazing male. Leonard Whiting was a perfect Romeo. The film won 2 Oscars for Cinemetography and Costume Design. Zeffirelli was nominated for Best Director and the film for Best Picture. It was also nominated for several Golden Globes and won Best director for Zeffirelli from The National Board of Review. It was not only visually stunning but the soundtrack particularly “What is a Youth?” was amazing. Really messed up not including this one.

    I really think City of Angels is a great one.
    I cried so hard when I watched that movie.
    It’s such a beautiful movie.
    And, Legends Of The Fall is another one.
    Love Me Tender is probably my favorite though.
