Valentine’s Day Blog Hop – Tina’s TOP 15 most Romantic Movies

Welcome to another Blog Hop – if you are just joining, you can start the hop here. 

http://justromance.me/bloghop

I actually went looking for romantic movies and then was disappointed when I hadn’t seen half of them and only owned one.  So I thought I’d pull from my actual movie collection and list the movies I find the most romantic.

15.  Look Who’s Talking – I always thought the beginning should be used for Sex Ed. 

14.  Housesitter – I love Goldie Hawn’s Comedic Presence and the fabrication in this movie.  It’s both funny and the first time I watched it, I misted up a bit.

13. True Lies – befor Arnold was the Governor, he was an actor.  This movie has perfect comedic elements for his action style.  It’s also one of the only movies I remember Tom Arnold in.  You can also see see Jamie Lee Curtis gettin’ her funk on. 

12.  Overboard – Another Goldie Hawn movie with her longtime beau Kurt Russell.  This was on the Romantic Movie List.

11.  For Richer or Poorer – I love seeing Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley reconnect in an Amish Setting.  It’s pretty funny too.

10.  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The first time I saw this movie, I sobbed at the end when Beauty admits, “but I love you…”

9.  Romancing the Stone – Any Romance author can appreciate Joan Wilder writing during the Bodice Ripper era…the opening scene is priceless.   To watch Joan in her own romantic adventure is entertaining beyond words.

8.  Crocodile Dundee – Who doesn’t like the idea of a guy who knows his way around the bush and can kill a croc with a knife…

7.  Yours, Mine and Ours – Another in my tear-jerker collection.

6.  CutThroat Island – While not Romantic per say, there is a nice sexual energy by both lead characters.

5.  Beautician and the Beast – All around fun

4.  Love Potion #9 – Nerds need love too.

3.  Underworld – Vampires and Werewolves are just plain SEXY.

2.  The Mummy – Seeing Brendan Fraser as an action hero was nice…and while this movie is mostly sexual tension with a hint of romantic beginnings.  The second movie, “The Mummy Returns”  really brings out the love.

 

AND FINALLY my number one movie choice

 

1. 10 things I hate about you – Maybe it’s because of Heath Ledger, maybe it’s because it’s based loosely off my favorite Shakespeare play…but I heart this movie.

So what romantic movies are in your home collection?

    I haven’t thought about this one in a while…Paperback Hero is one that I love and I’ve only seen it once many years ago. It was my first introduction to Hugh Jackman. He played a romance author that wrote under his friend’s name. It was such a cute movie. Hmm…now I going to have to hunt this one down so I can watch it again!

    I love that you mentioned The Mummy! I swear,every time that movie comes on I watch it as if I’ve never seen it.The same with Overboard. I also love Yours, Mine and Ours. Not sure if you meant the original, but if you did, I’m right there with you!

    Some of mine…I know they’re more centered on Christmas, but I still love them and that’s The Family Stone and Love Actually. Also if anyone has ever seen it Blind Date is also on my list. I could keep going, but I’ll stop now!

    Oh and I too thought the same thing about Look Who’s Talking!
