Whether you’re in love or just feel like rooting for two people who are, a romantic movie can be the perfect remedy. Much like every girl’s search for that perfect somebody, you’ve got to find a film that fits. While Some Like It Hot and others like them sappy, everyone can agree that love conquers all. Her Campus has collected the best of the best romantic movies of every genre from steamy to sweet.
High School Romance
- She’s All That
- 10 Things I Hate About You
- Never Been Kissed
- Say Anything
- Sixteen Candles
- Dirty Dancing
Before the Justin Bieber captured teenage hearts, there was Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Heath Ledger at the turn of the millennium. Gather the girls to rewatch the movies (and men) you used to adore and to reminisce about young love. Sure She’s All That is a little bit shallow, but that doesn’t make it any less sappy or fun. Watch as uber-jock Prinze gets the girl and the guts to stand up to his friends.
In 10 Things I Hate About You, Heath Ledger’s character serenades the object of his affection on the bleachers in front of the whole school. If that’s not a public display of affection, we’re not sure what is. Unlucky-in-love Drew Barrymore goes back to school in Never Been Kissed and finally finds her dream man in this sweet movie.
Say Anything predates all the other films by a decade but it is teenage love at its best. The scene where loyal Lloyd Dobler hoists up his boom box blaring “In Your Eyes” has been copied many times over in pop culture. But there’s nothing like the original with a baby-faced John Cusack looking up so earnestly in the hopes of winning over his dream girl Diane Court. For extra credit, try teen romances like Sixteen Candles or Dirty Dancing. Your teenage years don’t last forever but luckily these movies will.
