I would like to add an Indian film "Vinnaithandi varuvaya" (Tamil), starred by Silambarasan and Trisha. It's a super hit fantastic romantic love story happens in the backdrop of it and comment about this film.

BawaK on May 14, 2012:

nathan 14 on April 26, 2012:

Vikash Kumar from New York on April 11, 2012:

I like step up all parts and you people should add "Someone Like You" in this list.

Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on April 10, 2012:

@Lady_E Happy that you like the list.

@Gedsy I love Notebook too...

@Gary Davis Love Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzennegar and Jean Claude Van Damme too!

@Jools99 I can understand. Men are mostly into action movies.

@fitnesszone Yes, Notebook is a wonderful film.

@adrienne2 That's nice to know.

independentminded on April 03, 2012:

Why was West Side Story not added in there?

Justin W Price from Juneau, Alaska on March 11, 2012:

i actually prefer most of these movies to action films. I'm not a big fan of action. When Harry met Sally, Gone with the wind, titanic and dirty dancing are among my favorites!

cebutouristspot from Cebu on February 13, 2012:

cbpoet from Las Vegas, Nevada on January 14, 2012:

I look forward to viewing some of your movies ideas. There's only two that you mention that I haven't seen! Thanks

Trsmd from India on January 10, 2012:

I wonder, whether it is possible to watch the movie, if you are with your girlfriend...

icountthetimes on November 25, 2011:

It's nice to see The Princess Bride getting a mention in your list.

Fierce Manson from Atlanta on November 21, 2011:

Wonderful list of movies with some of my all time favorites on it. Many of the movies I actually did watch with a boyfriend. Thanks for a great list.

fitnesszone from New York on November 18, 2011:

Good list. The Notebook tops the list for me.

Jools Hogg from North-East UK on November 13, 2011:

Great list and I like lots of these movies. My husband is more of an action adventure fan but he does watch the occasional rom-com with me so it's not too bad!

Voted up.

Gary Davis on November 12, 2011:

Sorry, but if a movie doesn't have Clint Eastwood, Arnold Schwarzennegar or Jean Claude Van Damme in it, it's not a REAL movie. Facetiously, yours, typical guy.....voted up and awesome.

Gedsy on November 10, 2011:

Oh yeah, the Notebook, such a beautiful story !

Elena from London, UK on October 30, 2011:

Great List - Some of my favourites are in there too.

Anamika S Jain (author) from Mumbai - Maharashtra, India on October 30, 2011:

Yes, Maid in Manhattan can fit into the list as it is the story of a high profile politician falling in love with a Hotel Maid assuming that she is a socialite. Jennifer Lopez rocked in the title role.

Thanks for the comment chinemeremz,

Chinemere onuekwusi on October 30, 2011:

Wonderful and romantic list, I'll like to add maid in Manhattan starring Jennifer Lopez quite an interesting film that shows that love knows no physical, class, orientation or racial boundaries.
