With Valentine's Day almost upon us, we've rounded up some of the most romantic movie moments of all time.

From kisses in the rain, to goofy serenading, grand gestures and laying-it-on-the-line monologues, these scenes have made an indelible mark on cinema history.

Check out some of the most dizzying, heartwrenching and goosebump-inducing movie moments we've ever seen.

Get ready to swoon!

The Notebook

The Notebook's tale of two star-crossed young lovers is brimming over with romantic moments (He builds her a house! They dance in the street!) but Noah (Ryan Gosling) and Allie (Rachel McAdams) reconciling many years after a summer fling has got to be the weakened-knee moment to end all weakened-knee moments.

"Why didn't you write me? It wasn't over for me. I waited for you for seven years," a rain-drenched Allie furiously asks Noah.

"I wrote you 365 letters. I wrote you every day for a year", an equally saturated Noah responds.

"You wrote me?"

"Yes! It wasn't over. It still isn't over."

Say Anything

It doesn't get much better for grand romantic gestures than in the 1989 John Cusack classic Say Anything.

The lovesick Lloyd attempts to win back his estranged girlfriend Diane by blasting Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes on a boombox he's holding above his head outside her bedroom window.

Yes, it sounds a little creepy, but it just works, which is mostly down to the effortless charm of John Cusack. Absolutely iconic.

Notting Hill

This first-rate, late Nineties rom-com starring the perennially floppy-haired Hugh Grant as William, a bumbling bookshop owner, and Julia Roberts as Anna, a glamorous Hollywood movie star, hits all the right notes.

When a devastated Anna tries to reconcile with William after many ups and downs we get the shivers every time, particularly when she tells him she's "just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her".

Beautifully gut-wrenching.

10 Things I Hate About You

The late Nineties was a bumper time for romantic-comedies, but the quintessential teen romance has got to be 10 Things I Hate About You. Starring the late, great Heath Ledger in his breakthrough role, it's smart, funny and unapologetically romantic. The definitive scene that is imprinted in our minds has got to be Ledger's bad-boy character Patrick serenading Julia Stiles' cool-girl Kat with Can't Take My Eyes Off You at their high school's sports ground.

The moment the school marching band joins in, much to Kat's wide-eyed astonishment, is top-notch, as is Patrick's goofy dance across the bleachers. Extra comedy bonus points to Ledger continuing to dance as the cops try to drag him away.

The Wedding Singer

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are a match made in movie heaven as Robbie and Julia in The Wedding Singer. Robbie is devastated at the prospect of Julia marrying her love-rat fiancé Glen. The trio are flying on the same plane when Robbie, having spilled his heart out to a group of fellow passengers including Billy Idol in a hilarious cameo, decides to serenade Julia with a song he's written especially for her, I Want to Grow Old With You.

The look on Drew Barrymore's face when she realises what's going on is just perfection. 

"I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches, build you a fire if the furnace breaks..."

All together now, awwwww.

Punch Drunk Love

This refreshingly different romantic comedy marks another entry in this list for none other than Adam Sandler.

2002's Punch Drunk Love from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson sees Sandler play socially awkward Barry who is embarking on a romance with Lena (Emily Watson), a friend of his sister. The film perfectly depicts the sweet, slightly awkward interactions during a burgeoning relationship - encapsulated in the below scene. 

Romeo + Juliet

Back in 1996, Baz Luhrmann brought his considerable flair to this modernised version of Shakespeare's tragedy Romeo and Juliet and the results are breathtaking. The moment that babyfaced Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, playing the titular star-crossed duo, catch eyes across a fish tank at a party gives meaning to the phrase 'love at first sight'. A joy to watch.

Chasing Amy

Ben Affleck's monologue in Kevin Smith's 1997 rom-com Chasing Amy is a beautifully poignant expression of unrequited love that never fails to get the tear ducts flowing. Some of the best lines include "You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being", "I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you" and "I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are". So beautiful.


The opening sequence of Up has got to be one of the most remarkable to have ever graced the big screen.

This beautifully romantic montage follows the lifelong love of Carl and Ellie from youth to old age. It puts viewers through a heartrending rollercoaster of emotions, but it says so much about marriage, love and a life well lived. It's extraordinarily powerful; we shed a tear every time we see it.


Casablanca is one of the most iconic films ever released and this scene between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman as two people desperately in love but torn apart by circumstance is hard to top.

Bogart's Rick is telling Bergman's Ilsa to leave him and board a plane, telling her if she doesn't she'll regret it "maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon - and for the rest of your life".

The moving scene is filled with memorable lines ("We'll always have Paris...") and ends with the most iconic of them all: "Here's looking at you, kid."
