Some of the Top Romantic Movies of All Time

Hollywood never fails to produce romantic films. These can be the perfect addition to your plans for Valentine’s Day. These are some of the films that you can watch over and over but each time they still stir your emotions.

Some all time favorite romantic films include An Affair to Remember, Casablanca, Pretty Woman, Shakespeare In Love, and Titanic. (Feel free to mention some of your favorites in the comment section.)

Here are some details about these – if you haven’t seen them all, you should check them out.

The 1942 Casablanca film was about a love triangle between a nightclub owner in Morocco and his former lover who has a Czech rebel and nationalist husband. The story revolves around the dilemma of a man between winning the woman he loves and helping his rival escape from the French-occupied Moroccan City of Casablanca. This film is highly acclaimed and well known for many reasons: the characters, music, and phrases have become famous to the extent of including it in the list of greatest films of all time. It won three Academy Awards, including the Best Picture.

The 1957 An Affair to Remember is called the most romantic movie of all time according to American Film Institute. The story revolves around Terry and Nickie, played respectively by Deborah Kerr Cary Grant. The two meet on a ship travelling across the Atlantic Ocean. They eventually fall in love though both are engaged to other people. When they say goodbye, they promise to meet atop the Empire State Building in six months if their feelings remain the same. The theme song “An Affair to Remember,” which was performed by Vic Damone, contributed to the success of the film. (An all time awesome tear jerker that restores your confidence in love. This film is a big element of Sleepless in Seattle.)

In the 90s, Pretty Woman was a blockbuster romantic comedy that grossed $464 million dollars. The film is a love story between a prostitute and a wealthy businessman. Julia Roberts played Vivian Ward while Richard Gere played Edward Lewis. Edward hired Vivian to be his escort in many businesses functions. Eventually, the two fall for each other. Great end to the film, although not as awesome as Richard Gere in the end of An Officer and a Gentleman.

From this Cinderella-story inspired plot, Roberts won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for Academy Awards for her role.

In 1998, Shakespeare in Love is another romantic comedy film. This is fictional film that revolves around the imagining of the young William Shakespeare—played by Joseph Fiennes—until he falls in love with a wealthy young woman. Shakespeare is a struggling writer while the woman, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, disguises just to be an actor. The two eventually fall for each other. Worth noting however, some of the characters are real people and some characters and lines are based on Shakespeare’s literary works.

An award winning blockbuster movie, Titanic is about the sinking of Titanic, the biggest ship of her time. The plot revolves around the love story of Jack and Rose, played respectively by Leonardo Di Carpio and Kate Winslet. They come from two different social classes, but they eventually fall in love aboard the ship. The characters and story may be fictional but the sinking of Titanic is a real event. So far, no film has surpassed the commercial success of Titanic. It also won seven Academy Awards.

These five films have never failed to stir emotions from its audience making them an all-time favorite of moviegoers and lovers, especially during the love month.
