What is the Most Romantic Movie Ever?

With Valentine's Day looming at the end of the—wait, who are we kidding? Love is on our mind all the time, it's what we do!

But since everyone else's mind is also on love, we wanted to ask—what movie do you think is the most romantic? Is it one you'd like to see with your significant other, a group of girlfriends, or all by yourself?

Oooh, this is a tough one. I'm going with The Quiet Man, followed by The Lady Eve since one is a drama and the other is a comedy. Can you tell I'm a fan of the classics?

Casablanca. I cry every time, especially at the "hill of beans" bit.
OMG, I'm in tears now.
I love Zefferelli's "Romeo and Juliet" but the supporting actors are better than the leads. Michael York's Tybalt, for instance, is a real prince of cats.
I will watch them with people who understand how I feel about them, so I'm not embarrassed when I reach for the tissues!
If you've not seen "Casablanca" then don't watch this, because it's a big spoiler. If you've seen it, or you don't care, enjoy!

"The Lady Eve" is another good one, and "Dark Victory" too! For a light hearted romance, "Top Hat" is delicious.

Top 5 :
Wings of Desire - He gives up his wings for her!
Amelie: Two dreamers finding love...in France!
Casablanca: Just *swoon*
Breakfast at Tiffany's - Just fast forward through Micky Rooney's bits
Any movie related to a Jane Austen novel, but especially Pride and Prejudice (BBC) and Mansfield Park.

I've never seen The Lady Eve! It's on my Netflix queue. I would say Moonstruck and, of course, Persuasion and P&P.

I wish Casablanca didn't tear me up so much, because I do love that movie, but each time I wish it could end up differently. It can't, but SOB.

@MFrampton--Whenever The Lady Eve is on I want to take modern filmmakers, sit them in front of the screen and say, "This is how you produce a witty, sophisticated romantic comedy without resorting to cheap sex jokes."

Alas, they truly are not making them like they used to.

Yes! Yes! Yes! to Casablanca!

I'm a huge fan of old movies so
An Affair To Remember with Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant. I've watched this a gazillion times. When she tells him she was looking up at the Empire State Bldg. . . .

Notorious with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman has a kiss scene that sizzles.

And I loved Pretty In Pink because of Duckie.

I do love some of the movies mentioned, particularly Moonstruck and Notorious. I guess I'll have to put The Lady Eve in my queue.

But I'm sticking with The Princess Bride

@MFrampton Moonstruck and Persuasion are tops on my list, too! Wentworth's letter...*sigh*

Practical Magic is a fave of mine, too, but I also agree with @Myretta about The Princess Bride...there are too many great movies to choose from!

King of Hearts, because the hero falls in love with a whole way of life.

Chocolat

To go along with the old movie theme, Sabrina is awesome, both old and remake. How has no one mentioned The Princess Bride?! Inconcievable!
Glass Slipper

This is a tough question! If I had to choose only one, it would be A Royal Affair. What a gorgeous film!

The English Patient. (paraphrasing) "Every night I cut out my heart ...and every morning found that it had filled up again " Beautiful and heartbreaking!

Bull Durham, for combining the two loves of my life (other than hubs and fam, of course) ... baseball and a gorgeous romance. When man (what a man) meets woman (and what a woman). Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon at their very best. Or should I say The Thomas Crown Affair?

The Princess Bride followed by The Quiet Man. The English Patient was great but just too painful to watch a second time.
