What’s your favourite romantic film of all time?

Lady and the Tramp

Whoever said romance is dead clearly never set foot inside Time Out Towers. The love bug’s been going round like a bad stomach virus ever since we decided to put together a definitive list of the 100 best romantic movies of all time  (just take a look at some of our personal favourites below).

But it’s not about us, it’s about you: we really want to know what movies make you go all gooey inside. Maybe it’s that robotic snog in ‘Wall-E’, or the bit where Leo and Claire lock eyes through a fish tank in ‘Romeo + Juliet’, or when Swayze said ‘Nobody puts Baby in the corner’, or the moment Billy declares his undying love to Meg in ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Or maybe it was just the moment that Ryan did this:

The Notebook

Whatever film gets your pulse going, let us know. And if you’ve got time to tell us why you might just find yourself featured when we publish the final list.

Ten favourites from Time Out Towers

Groundhog Day
‘Because I actually want to be seduced by a grouchy time-warped Bill Murray who sculpts ice with a chainsaw.’

The Secretary
‘It’s about two fucked-up crazies who get together and be fucked-up-crazy-happy together. The spanking is irrelevant.’

Grosse Point Blank
‘It has the highest body count of any romantic film. (Apart from maybe ‘Titanic’.)’

Open Hearts
‘Dogme at its best: more real than reality.’

‘Oh, Jerry, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We have the stars.’ Aaagh! How can you not fall for that?’

The Pillow Book
‘Great love story but a healthy dose of psychosis and evil to balance the emotional schlock.’

‘It’s my favourite bromantic movie.’

Reality Bites
‘Just for the line: He’s so cheesy, I can’t watch him without crackers.’

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
‘It demonstrates why relationships are the most wonderfully awful thing you can ever experience.’

The Princess Bride
‘Because it’s just a great film and everything ends well.’
