We all know how a romantic movie tends to go: two souls who might never have met meet under extreme circumstances, their love is filled with tumult and passion, and their relationship either survives or dramatically ends. There’s your romantic movie. Despite the seemingly formulaic layout of romantic movies, there are some incredibly memorable romantic movie scenes that it often seems like everyone and their mother can recite by heart. Let’s take a look at the top 10 most romantic movie scenes!
- Jack and Rose
If you didn’t read that title and immediately feel the tears well up, are you even a real human with emotions?

Let’s relive this romantic scene that topped all other romantic movie scenes.

Although this scene from When Harry Met Sally (1989) may not be of the typical romantic movie scenes, this is a classic scene that will bring a cringing laugh from all who watch it.
- “I’m in love with you”
The Fault in our Stars (2014) made us laugh, cry, and hug those close to us. One of the most touchingly romantic movie scenes of recent years was when the young couple goes on a date and truly confesses their love.
