Romantic Movies for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are each doing well, and that your week is off to a lovely start!

Now on this particular day, I thought it might be rather fun to come up with a list of ten absolutely romantic movies.
 
I must confess, the first movie that came to mind was Sleepless In Seattle.




I know, it is a predictable choice! But it deserves to be, don't you think? ;) It's such an endearing movie, and who can resist Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks together?



Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen   is a close second with its enactment of Jane Austen's novel. {Perfection!}

One movie that is a decided favorite of mine is Fireproof.



This is one of the most romantic movies I have ever seen, yet the premise is quite different from the typical love story. Set five years after the couple marries, this movie shows how a complete change of heart through faith in God can redeem a failing marriage.




Roman Holiday is another perfect choice. It is both lighthearted and fun, but not without a bittersweet ending.




A movie that is not only family friendly, but also truly fun for the whole family, is Disney's Tangled.




{I found it romantic and thoroughly entertaining!}


And how could I not mention The Notebook?




Oh, how this one tugs at the heart strings! {And he transforms an entire old house simply for love of her!}





A romantic comedy my husband and I stumbled upon recently is The Importance of Being Earnest, with Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon. It is one of the most hilarious movies ever!



Love Comes Softly  is such a sweet and romantic film! Be sure to bring out the tissue for this one.


Number nine on my list is Much Ado About Nothing.




Although a romantic comedy in its own right, it has a definite element of plot and intrigue.




And last, but not least, is  Sense and Sensibility.

 

Another wonderful movie based on a Jane Austen novel, and so well done!

So, do any of you like to watch a fun movie with your sweetheart or family for Valentine's? 


What is your all-time favorite romantic movie?


{Whatever you have planned for this special day, I hope it is a beautiful one for you!}


Much love,
Jenni

I LOVED Tangled! :) These are wonderful and I have to admit that I have not seen most of them. I am not sure what my favorite is but I do know that I love watching The Time Travelers Wife quite often and I always cry. :)
