Thinking on the “romantic” holiday, I thought I would offer up some on my favorite ROMANCE movies. Likely, I will be curled up on the sofa this evening and enjoying several of these. Perhaps, you have favorites you would wish to mention below.
For these, I know the majority of the lines…
Pride and Prejudice with Matthew Macfadyen… Enough Said!
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers – know all the song lyrics!
Notting Hill – Hugh Grant at his best!
Sabrina – played the part in community theatre production of Sabrina Fair
Sweet Home Alabama “You’re the first boy I ever kissed, Jake, and I want you to be the last.”
Sleepless in Seattle – Can you too repeat all the lines from the Empire State Bldg. scene?
These are sweet and satisfying…
10 Thins I Hate About You – the young adult version of Taming of the Shrew
The Cutting Edge – the best of the series
Bridget Jones’ Diary – fabulous tale based on Pride and Prejudice
A Knight’s Tale – Heath Ledger and a naked Paul Bettany as Chaucer
Never Been Kissed – Michael Vartan!!!
These are tear jerkers…
The Quiet Man – when John Wayne returns her to her brother, I was hooked. What of you?
Casablanca – a classic tale of love lost
Up Close & Personal – I turn this one off before Redford dies!
West Side Story – the songs and the story remain a classic
The Notebook – such a sad, but fulfilling ending
Atonement – (sigh!) James McAvoy
Gone With the Wind -“Frankly, my Dear, I don’t give a damn!”
An Affair to Remember – “I really hope you’ve found happiness, and if you’re ever in need of anything, like someone to love you, don’t hesitate to call me.”
North and South – a fabulous miniseries
