Since Valentine’s Day is tomorrow wondering what everyone’s favorite romantic movies are. To be honest it is not my favorite genre, but I do like “You’ve Got Mail” with Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks & “Pride & Prejudice” with Keira Knightly. The music in Pride & Prejudice is beautiful too. 

 

Anyone else want to share?

To my surprise, I loved Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.

My favorite is “ The Big Sick “ with Kumail Nanjiani. It is funny an sweet and based on Kumail and his wife. My other favorites are “Pride and Prejudice” and  “ The Way we Were .”

Re: Favorite Romantic Movies

There are just so many, and lots of dramas that have very romantic parts, but three I always think of as favorites are:

 

"Return to Me" (with Minnie Driver and David Duchovny)

 

 "Falling in Love" (with Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro, one of the few movies where he plays a "normal, average" person)

 

 and "Firelight" (a not so well known movie with Stephen Dillane, an actor I love.  It's very "Jane Eyre"ish and very, very romantic.)

The Way We Were and Notebook. I must confess list of classic romance films would bore the majority. For example, Enchanted Cottage: Be still my heart.

Oh no, Enchanted Cottage is just a lovely film.  One of my favorites. I love it.

Gone with the Wind and Sense and Sensibility (Emma Thompson's version) are my two picks. I'm not a big romance fan but these I do like.
