There’s just something about the big screen that brings romance alive. We’ve picked the 10 most swoon-worthy movie moments that are sure to make your hearts flutter.
Jerry Maguire’s awkward, yet heartfelt declaration of love that began with “Hello”, and ended with “You complete me”, only to be told by his estranged wife, “You had me at hello”, will forever go down as the moment that raised the bar for boyfriends/husbands the world over.
You’ve Got Mail
After numerous e-mails between ‘Shopgirl’ and ‘NY152’ online and several spats between Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox offline, the two finally meet and kiss in a moment we’d all been anticipating, ice cream spoons in hand. We don’t know about you, but it’s all terribly romantic for us when the two lovers finally unite – even we wanted it to be him so badly!
The Wedding Singer
Robbie can’t find it in himself to let Julia marry her fiancé Glen – the cheater. He crashes their flight, and sings her “I want to grow old with you”, a song he’s specially written for her. If a boy did that for us, we’d happily tear up as well.
You don’t see too many leading ladies declaring their love for the hero. What makes this one moment that much more special is that it comes from Hollywood star Anna Scott who puts the whole love thing in perspective for everyone when she tells Will Thacker, a bookstore owner, “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her”. How can anyone say no to that?
10 Things I Hate About You
A very young and very handsome (bless his soul) Heath Ledger serenades Julia Stiles over the PA system, in front of the soccer team, at the cost of detention, no less. Of course she agreed to go out with him after. #likeaboss
My Sassy Girl
When Kyun-woo gives the The Girl’s new suitor 10 rules to follow to enjoy a happy relationship with her, The Girl finally realises that Kyun-woo really understands and loves her in spite of her beating, punching and abusing him.
A Walk to Remember
It’s funny and romantic and poignant when Landon tells Jamie he’s fallen in love with her when she’s expressly forbidden him. Only because she’s dying of leukemia – but he doesn’t know yet.
Almost every scene from The Notebook can go down on this list, but if we had to pick just one, it would be the kiss in the rain. Which girl doesn’t want the love of her life to tell her, “It still isn’t over” after years of being apart, and follow it up with the most passionate kiss. Sigh.
No, we really can’t pick a single moment: Carl and Ellie’s entire relationship is an adorable, sweet look at how two people can love each other through thick and thin. And that just makes us want to find our own special Carl too.
Crazy Stupid Love
When what looks a lot like a one night stand between Jacob and Hannah turns into the beginning of a crazy, passionate relationship, we just had the widest smile on our faces and a warm fuzzy feeling in our tummies. We just wish it was us though. I mean it is Ryan Gosling.
