Top 70 Most Romantic Movies Of All Time

Who doesn’t love good romantic movies? To experience that feel good mushy feeling, to enjoy with your partner, all snuggled up in a warm blanket. Well, if you are looking for movie recommendations for your upcoming date night, then I have you covered.

Here is a long list of the most romantic movies of all time for you to select from, so all you need to do is dig through the list to find the one for you.

Breakfast At Tiffany’s  

“AKA, the one with *the* Aubrey Hepburn outfit everyone has worn for Halloween at least once. Hepburn plays Holly Golightly, a charming wistful socialite who falls for her handsome new neighbor, played by George Peppard.”

Before Sunrise   

“This incredibly romantic film follows Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke as two young travelers who meet on a train and decide to spend a magical day and night exploring Vienna together.”


“This movie features what I will definitively call the sexiest pottery scene in all of cinema! Patrick Swayze plays Sam, a man whose love for his girlfriend transcends everything — even death, it seems.”


“This futuristic romance centers on a lonely writer who slowly develops a bond with an artificially-intelligent operating system (think, like, Siri or Alexa), voiced by Scarlett Johansson. It’s gorgeously shot and surprisingly sweet.”

The Way We Were  

“This 1973 romantic drama stars Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford, who fall for each other despite being total opposites. Come for the iconic cast, stay for the melodramatic ending.”

My Big Fat Greek Wedding   

“A classic rom-com! Toula is a 30-year-old woman with a loving, slightly overwhelming Greek family. When she accepts her boyfriend Ian’s marriage proposal, she realizes that planning the wedding and getting her family to accept Ian might be more complicated than she thought.”

The Holiday  

“If watching this movie isn’t part of your annual holiday tradition, what are you even doing?? This cozy film stars Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz as two women who are going through it relationship-wise and decide to swap homes for the holiday season.”

500 Days Of Summer  

“Despite the voiceover that says, “You should know upfront, this is not a love story,” I think it deserves a spot on this list. It’s a realistic story about a situationship, plus Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel are super charming.”

Kabhi Khushi Kabie Gham  

“This visually stunning Bollywood film tells the story of the adopted son of a wealthy family who falls in love with a woman from a low-income background. He marries her despite his family’s protestations, and things get complicated from there.”

The Half Of It  

“This sweet movie centers around Ellie, a shy high school student who makes money writing essays for her classmates. When she’s approached by football player Paul to pen a love letter to their classmate Aster, she accepts.”

Something’s Gotta Give  

“Come for the coastal grandmother aesthetic, stay for the love triangle between Keanu Reeves, Diane Keaton, and Jack Nicholson.”


“You’ll either find the premise of this movie very charming or very annoying, but there’s only one way to find out! Jonathan and Sara are two people who spend a surprisingly intimate day together. But rather than give him her number, Sara insists that if it’s meant to be, they’ll cross paths again.”

Romeo + Juliet  

“I mean, it’s kinda *the* love story! Baz Luhrmann’s version of the Shakespearean drama takes place in the fictional Verona Beach and stars Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular couple.”

Sweet Home Alabama  

“Reese Witherspoon stars as an up-and-coming fashion designer in New York who’s on the cusp of marrying her dream guy. The only thing is she’s *technically* still married to her childhood sweetheart who lives in her Alabama hometown.”

My Best Friend’s Wedding  

“As far as rom-coms go, this one is surprisingly subversive. When Julianne’s best friend Michael gets engaged, she realizes she’s been in love with him all along. She plans to break up the happy couple, but things don’t exactly go according to plan.”


“This movie follows one Black man throughout his childhood and adult life as he works to figure out his sexual identity.”

Crazy Rich Asians  

“This movie is not only a romance but just an absolute feast for the eyes, to employ a film critic phrase. The clothes! The locations! It doesn’t get any prettier than this.”

West Side Story  

“The 2021 remake of West Side Story is very good, but we’re putting this one on the list instead because there’s something to be said for the original.”


“The opening sequence of this film will make you openly sob, and then after that, it’s just really, really enjoyable. He’s just trying to fulfill his wife’s lifelong dream!!”

The Umbrella Of Cherbourg  

“If you liked La La Land (which may or may not make an appearance later on this list), it owes a lot to this movie. It’s like, if you’ve already seen the 2.0 Emma Stone/Ryan Gosling version, you should definitely see the 1.0 version.”


“This movie is what the phrase “stood the test of time” was invented for. If you didn’t know where the lines “Here’s looking at you, kid” and “We’ll always have Paris” came from, you need to watch ASAP.”

An Affair To Remember  

“Before Chuck and Blair made their infamous promise to meet at the Empire State Building, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr made the same one in this classic romance.”


“Robot love counts as love, okay?”

When Harry Met Sally  

“This is one of those classics where two people who are obviously attracted to each other try to stay just friends. The fake orgasm scene is just the cherry on top.”


“I only need one word to sell you on the romance of this film: CHER.”

About Time  

“On his 21st birthday, Tim’s father tells him that the men in their family can time travel. At first, Tim uses this ability to get himself a girlfriend, but as life goes on, he realizes time travel isn’t the answer for all of his problems.”

Step Up  

“Oh, this? The movie where Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan met? With the final dance number you certainly tried—and failed—to learn? Absolutely.”

A Star Is Born  

“Okay yes, the second hour of this movie is very sad, but the first hour? Where Lady Gaga is simply falling in love? That’s romance, baby.”

Pride & Prejudice  

“Before Matthew MacFadyen was stabbing Shiv in the back on Succession (IYKYK), he was breaking hearts as Mr. Darcy. This adaptation of the beloved novel will bewitch you, body and soul. (Get it?)”

Love Rosie   

“Before she was Emily in Paris, Lily Collins played single mom Rosie, who can’t seem to get the timing right with her best guy friend, Sam Claflin’s Alex.”

One Day  

“Prepare to spend two hours crying as you watch one of the most tragic love stories of our time with Anne Hathaway at the center of it all. This one will rip you apart, but it’s totally worth it.”

The Vow  

“Rachel McAdams gets into an accident and forgets everything, even her husband, Channing Tatum—as if anyone could forget they were married to Channing Tatum. But the point is that he kept trying to make her fall in love with him, even when she forgot him. Ugh.”

The Time Traveler’s Wife  

“Another Rachel McAdams classic to add to the list. This time, she’s falling in love with an actual time traveler, and it’s not as cool as it sounds. Will their love endure?”

The Notebook  

“Are you surprised? The Rachel McAdams film festival continues! It’s safe to say Nicholas Sparks is pretty much the *king* of romance. Almost all of his novels get made into movies, but The Notebook is by far his most famous adaptation.”


“I mean, this one’s just a given, right?”

10 Things I Hate About You  

“UGH. Heath Ledger serenading Julia Stiles with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” is truly one of the best scenes to ever happen in the history of cinema, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY.”

Pretty Woman   

“There’s a reason why Pretty Woman has the highest number of ticket sales ever for a romantic comedy: It’s just, like, really effing good. Julia Roberts is a gem as always, and the FASHUN in this movie! Iconic!!”

La La Land  

“It didn’t win six Oscars for nothing.”

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days  

“Because Matthew McConaughey. Need we say more? Okay fine: Kate Hudson, too!”

Crazy Stupid Love  

“Just because there is no such thing as too much Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Also Steve Carell. Enough said.”

Love Actually  

“The romance movie of all romance movies. No matter what age, this one is a MUST.”

P.S. I Love You  

“For some reason, a lot of great romance movies involve somebody dying. It’s very masochistic if you ask me, but I don’t make the rules!! At least in P.S. I Love You, you know from the start.”

You’ve Got Mail  

“This one is sort of underrated, IMHO. But seriously, give it a watch. You won’t be disappointed. P.S.: Is this how online dating worked before there were dating apps?”

The Fault In Our Star   

“Two teens with cancer fall deeply, madly in love? Sure John Green, just f*ck us all the way up!”

Call Me By Your Name  

“If you want to feel absolutely destroyed, this is the movie for you! The Italian setting and the soundtrack are so freakin’ beautiful, as is the relationship that forms between Elio (internet bae Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer-me-with-those-thighs.)”

Moulin Rouge!  

Moulin Rouge! gave us the most epic love song mashup of all time, the “Elephant Love Medley,” and for that, we should be forever grateful—but the movie behind the song is just as legendary. It’s sexy, wacky and, um, kind of heart-shattering, TBH.”

Notting Hill  

“I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” DAMMIT JULIA ROBERTS, I’m crying all over again.”

Me Before You   

“Oh man, I’m legit crying just thinking about this movie. I won’t spoil anything for you, but I would recommend placing a box of tissues within reach. Also, it’s kind of unfair how Sam Claflin’s face looks that good all the time.”

A Walk To Remember  

“Yet another adaptation of a Sparks classic, A Walk to Remember is pretty cheesy at times, but it’s also very cute and lovable.”

Brokeback Mountain  

“I wish I knew how to quit you.”

The Wedding Singer  

“There’s a reason why “Grow Old with You” has become such a modern-day wedding playlist staple. This movie has one of the sweetest rom-com moments of all time, and also plenty of hilarious scenes thanks to the comedic stylings of Adam Sandler.”

Music And Lyrics  

“The best time I’ve had in the last fifteen years was sitting at that piano with you.”

My Girl  

“Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade.”


“Somewho the silence seemed to connect us in a way that words never could.”

The Lake House  

“I don’t know if you remember but, we saw each other. That is, I saw you. You never told me… how beautiful you were.”

Just Like Heaven  

“In this “boy-meets-ghost” romcom, a widower rents out an apartment that’s occupied by the spirit of an E.R. doctor under a coma after a terrible car accident.”

Leap Year  

“When my 60 seconds came around i realized i had everything i ever wanted… but nothing i really needed. and i think what i need is here. and i came all this way to see if you maybe think so too. If you do, well… i don’t really have plans past that, which is new for me. So, Declan O’Callhan and i should probably learn your middle name, here is my proposal; i propose we not make plans, i propose we give this thing a chance and let it work out how it works out. so what do you say, do you wanna not make plans with me?”

Hello, Love, Goodbye  

“This tear-jerker of a romance speaks to the feart as two overseas workers living in Hong Kong find a spark and build a budding romance that runs deep.”

When In Rome  

“Honey, you cannot learn from my mistakes. You’re going to have to go out there and make your own. Now, you could get your heart broken or you could have the greatest love affair the world has ever known , but you’re not going to know unless you try.”

Letters To Juliet  

“You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like – a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for – but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I’d have the courage to seize it.”

When We First Met  

“Relationships are about intangible things. They’re about moments. The real moments and who you share them with. And the realest moments that I’ve had over the past three years have been with you.”

A Cinderella Story  

“I can be surrounded by a sea of people and still feel all alone…Then I think of you…”


“And we lived happily ever after – well, happily ever after so far at least.”

The Last Song  

“Love is fragile. And we’re not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can. And hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.”

Sleeping With Other People  

“If you want someone to fall for you, you gotta be you.”

Last Holiday   

“Next time… We will laugh more, we will love more; we just won’t be so afraid.”

She’s The Man  

“Girls with asses like mine do not talk to boys with faces like yours.”

Sylvie’s Love  

“Life is too short to waste time doing things you don’t absolutely love.”

Dirty Dancing   

“Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”

Never Been Kissed  

“That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone, and everything around becomes hazy, and the only thing in focus is you and this person, and you realize that that person is the only person that you’re supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment you get this amazing gift, and you want it.”
