What's Your Favorite Romantic Movie?

Yesterday was Valentine's Day and romantic movies played on television all day. Hands down, my favorite romantic movie is Titanic. I love the story of Jack and Rose.

Poor little rich girl Rose (Kate Winslet), whose family fortune is lost, is being forced by her mother to marry a handsome millionaire Cal (Billy Zane),who's also an abusive cad. But Rose falls in love with honorable poor boy Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio), who has nothing to offer her but love. The ending is bittersweet, but Rose does manage to disentangle herself from the clutches of the cad.

The movie opens in the present and is told in flashback. And by the way, the flashback takes place on the Titanic before, during, and after its sinking.

Romance, excitement, and adventure are found in this motion picture and it truly is unforgettable!

I'm not much of a movie reviewer, so to learn more about Titanic, click here. But most likely, you've already seen it. If not, and you're a sucker for a good romance, you have got to see it!

So, that's my favorite romantic movie! What's yours?

I have several favorites. Titanic is one of them. I also love Pretty Woman, Sweet Home Alabama, Moulin Rouge, and a lesser-known movie titled If Only.
