I don’t know about you guys, but I love a good old classic romantic movie when it’s raining outside (and when it’s sunny, snowing, windy, hurricane etc. Okay so you pretty much guessed it, I’m a big fan of romantic movies.) If any of you are bored on a miserable, rainy day like today during what is supposed to be our summer, then never fear because for all you hopeless romantics out there I have the solution… so grab the remote, your duvet, lots of chocolate and get settled on the couch and prepare to block out the rest of the world 🙂 By the way, these are in no particular order.
1. Pretty Woman
Richard Gere on point alongside our fab favourite actress Julia Roberts. What more could we ask for?
2. An Officer and a Gentleman
You know that dream every girl has where she is just living her life and a beautiful man swoops in to take her away? Oh, just me then. Richard Gere is also in this one and this is the movie that made me fall head over heels in love with that now 65-year-old man.
3. Dirty Dancing
My sister once told me if I had a role in this film, I would be the watermelon. However, with all that aside, Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing is fabbity fab.
4. Notting Hill
I am so surprised how many people have not seen this movie!! It is one of my all time favourites, ever. I looove Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts so this is the perfect film for me. Both laughter and tears to be expected. Hugh why you no love me?
So. Many. Feels.
6. Bridget Jones’s Diary
Bridget Jones is pretty much every girl ever. Especially me. Both of these movies are a must see, shame on you if you haven’t already…
7. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
Romantic Comedy at it’s finest. Plus Matthew McConaughey, so you best be getting on that asap… I literally would if I could…
8. The Notebook
Okay duh you’ve all seen this one so I don’t really need to explain why. Lets just say “Why didn’t you write me?” to bring it all back…
9. The Bodyguard
My mum isn’t a huge fan of this movie, but she also doesn’t find Tom Selleck appealing as Richard in Friends (and obviously he’s not in this movie, I’m just saying) so lets just ignore her opinions from now on. I literally watched this movie just to listen to Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and it was totally worth it!
10. Water for Elephants
I have seen this like 10 million times and still love it like the first time I watched it. R-Patz and Reese Witherspoon are perf, and I also love elephants! However, I will warn you it is quite difficult to watch at parts since it is about a circus.
Also, I’m sure you all noticed I didn’t throw in Titanic or any Disney movie and I did that on purpose because you would all be expecting it 😉 However, if you don’t watch Titanic you will never know what you’re looking for in a boyfriend and if you choose to live that way without knowing the feeling of falling in love with Jack Dawson then I feel bad for ya hun…
Sooooo I hope you enjoy crying and waiting for your crush to text back after watching all these! I think this is the issue with men nowadays, the good ones were all wasted in these movies and are now too old for us that’s why our mums always say “Your dad is a great man!” Well mother that’s very lucky for some but were is my Richard Gere…
