One of the most famous romantic movies ever without a doubt. This is a romantic film with plenty of music, plenty of dance and lots of feelings.

Plot: Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy's (Olivia Newton-John) love story begins with the classic premise of good girl meets bad boy, but from there it parts ways with any kind of archetype. Newly transplanted from Oz, goody two shoes Sandy comes to Rydell High, only to discover that her sweet summer love is actually the bad boy leader of the T-Birds.

However, when Edward's friend and partner discovers Vivian's occupation, his behavior and reaction cause a rift between the two -- but ultimately, love conquers over money.

This movie is a three times winner of the Academy Award and it surely deservs every one of them. See Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in a movie different from every other romantic movie.

The two men get along rather well, but things change after a night of heavy drinking leads to intense, nearly violent passion, leaving both men confused but unable to deny their feelings for each other.

15. Stepmom (1998)

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Julia Roberts is the stepmom and Susan Sarandon is the biological mom. From the beginning they can't stand each other but when one of them gets really sick everything changes. Again, the touch of tragedy, not to mention the familial elements, makes this one of the most romantic movies ever.

Romantic Plot: Luke Harrison (Ed Harris), who is divorced from Jackie (Sarandon), now has a girlfriend named Isabel (Roberts), with whom he lives, a situation that does not sit well with Jackie or their children, Anna (Jena Malone) and Ben (Liam Aiken). Their mother's feelings toward Isabel influence the way the children feel about her, and Isabel isn't very fond of Jackie, either. She's also not used to dealing with kids, which creates even more tension, but a burgeoning tragedy creates unbreakable bonds between the split family.

Main Cast: Susan Sarandon, Julia Roberts, Ed Harris, Liam Aiken, and Jena Malone.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

They've made Bridget Jones's Diary and they've made Notting Hill. This is another funny and entertaining romantic comedy, full of life, love, and intrigue. A lot of the most romantic movies come out of England, especially when they incorporate all-star casts like the one in Love Actually!

Romantic Plot: Lucy (Bullock) is a toll-taker in a subway booth, who falls in "love" with a man she sees everyday.

She can't see him, but as he's wheeled away, she makes the mistake of murmuring that she was going to marry him, convincing the nurse that she is his fiance -- which comes as a surprise to his friendly, open family, with whom lonely Lucy becomes close.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A movie to remember with a terrific Mandy Moore in the lead. A trustworthy, touching story that you won't forget after you've seen it. Well written and absolutely worth being watched.

This leads him to get help from religious, conservative good girl, Jamie Sullivan (Moore), who's supposed to be plain but really isn't. As they spend time together, they fall for one another, but Landon's popularity takes a dive because of it, and Jamie has to deal with her father and a deep secret.

This movie is one of the most famous romantic classics ever. It's still one of the most popular romantic movies even though it's been more than 60 years since it was released.

Romantic Plot: In a plot that is just as iconic as both the stars and the film itself, Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), who used to be a freedom fighter, now owns a nightclub, located in Casablanca. During the first years of World War II, he uses his club to house refugees who need to buy papers that will help them escape to America. Everything is going as smoothly as it can, given the times, until Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), an infamous rebel, comes to Rick's, along with his wife Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) -- who happens to be Rich's one great love. She left him when the Nazis first invaded Paris but it quickly becomes clear that they both still love one another. She wants Victor to leave for America while she stays with Rick -- but he sacrifices his own happiness for her safety.
Main Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, and Claude Rains.
