Finding movies that are romantic, but still appeal to both of you is a difficult task. The typical love stories that girlfriends or wives enjoy tend to get that “chick-flick” reputation from their male partners. Here are a few suggestions that both of you can enjoy together, most of which combine the mushy romance with comedy, mystery or, in the case of Pearl Harbour, explosions:

Films:

  • Romeo and Juliet (Baz Luhrmann’s version with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes)
  • 50 First Dates
  • How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
  • Love Actually
  • Dirty Dancing
  • The Replacements
  • Notting Hill
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding
  • Hitch
  • The Notebook
  • Shallow Hal
  • The Holiday
  • Wedding Crashers
  • The Wedding Singer
  • Jerry Maguire
  • There’s Something About Mary
  • Ghost
  • Pearl Harbour
  • Bridget Jones’ Diary
  • Mr & Mrs Smith
