Sometimes the perfect date night is snuggling up with your honey in front of a romantic movie—something you'll love and he won't hate. Make a list of your own favorites, or use these ideas to get started. Pick one to fit your mood—smart, steamy, exotic, twisted, sappy, goofy—it's all good!
Bogie and Bacall, when sexy was subtle.
An Affair to Remember
What love stories were like before cell phones.
When Harry Met Sally
Nora Ephron can write a romantic comedy. We love all the cute little older couples telling their stories. And who wouldn't want to marry their best friend?
Nicolas Cage and Cher are just weird enough to play their roles to perfection. And Olympia Dukakis and Vincent Gardenia rock as the older couple making it work.
An Officer and a Gentleman
We have a soft spot for men in uniform. Richard Gere = hot. Debra Winger = strong. Good stuff.
The Princess Bride
Clean enough for kids to watch, this romantic tale can win over anyone's heart. Plus there's sword fighting.
If you came of age in the '80s or '90s, there's no doubt that John Cusack standing on his car holding up a jam box is a romantic icon for you.
Like Water for Chocolate
Forbidden love is hot. So is seduction via dinner plate.
Some Kind of Wonderful
A John Hughes classic, replete with unrequited love and high school clique drama.report abuse
