DVD Diva: Romantic Movies

Romance will soon be in the air with Valentine’s Day coming, so why not have a candlelit dinner and watch one of these romantic movies with your sweetie:

It’s always fun to watch Hugh Grant fumble his way through life as he tries to find his special someone. Two that I particularly like are Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Four Weddings and a Funeral with Andie McDowell.

Michael Douglas and Annette Benning combine politics and romance in The American President.

And when you combine intrigue and romance and the great line “We’ll always have Paris,” you get Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in one of the all-time favorite romantic movies, Casablanca.

Shakespeare in Love features a young Shakespeare, out of ideas and short of cash, when he meets his ideal woman and is inspired to write one of his most famous plays, Romeo and Juliet.

You’ve Got Mail has Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan falling in love over the internet, a not-uncommon way to meet your mate these days.

In Jerry Maguire, Renee Zellweger tells Tom Cruise “You had me at hello” and a new catch-phrase was born.

And in Love Story, Ryan O’Neill tells Ali McGraw “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”
