Valentine’s Day will be upon us soon and here in the One4all HQ, we’ve been re-watching some of our favourite love stories. From kisses in the rain to cheesy serenades, and goofy monologues, here are some of the most romantic movie scenes in cinema history.
While this tale of two star-crossed young lovers is full of romance, our favourite scene has to be the moment Noah and Allie reconcile years after their summer fling. ‘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,’ Noah replied. ‘You wrote me?’, Allie asks. ‘Yes! It wasn’t over. It still isn’t over.’
John Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler is the king of grand romantic gestures. In the 1989 classic Say Anything, the lovesick underachiever attempts to win back his estranged girlfriend Diane Court by blasting Peter Gabriel’s ‘In Your Eyes’ on a boombox he’s holding over his head outside the valedictorian’s bedroom. A demonstration of true love that we smile watching every time.
10 Things I Hate About You
Teen romance 10 Things I Hate About You features one of the most iconic cheesy serenades of all time. The late Heath Ledger’s character, bad boy Patrick, serenades Julia Stiles’ cool-girl Kat with Can’t Take My Eyes Off You during soccer practice at their high school’s sports ground. Even the cops couldn’t stop his goofy dancing!
One of the most powerful sequences in film history, Up’s beautiful opening sequence creates a rollercoaster of emotions as viewers follow the lifelong love of Carl and Ellie from youth to old age. Between their wedding, their teamwork in building their forever home, and working towards their dream of Paradise Falls, we shed a tear every time.
This scene between Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the iconic Casablanca is a real tear-jerker. Featuring one of the most memorable lines from the romantic drama ‘Here’s looking at you kid’, the moving scene shows two people desperately in love but torn apart by circumstance. Bogart’s Rick tells Bergman’s Ilsa to leave him and board a plane, saying to her if she doesn’t she’ll regret it ‘maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon – and for the rest of your life.’
With lines like ‘You are the epitome of everything I have ever looked for in another human being’ and ‘I can’t stand next to you without wanting to hold you’, Ben Affleck’s monologue in Kevin Smith’s 1997 rom-com Chasing Amy is a poignant yet beautiful expression of unrequited love that gives us all the warms and fuzzies every time.
