Notting Hill (1999)

Most Read

Hugh Grant takes the leading role in this genre-defining rom-com, now a cult classic.

Grant’s character, Will, encounters Hollywood Star Anna Scott, played by Julia Roberts.

Their romance begins in a very unstarry manner with a dinner date at the home of Will’s sister, Honey.

If you haven’t seen this put it on now.

Serendipity (2001)

It all started with a magical night when the characters Jonathan (John Cusack) and Sara (Kate Beckinsale) were in their twenties.

Jonathan is sure it is love at first sight, but Sara believes in destiny.

The two continue to search for each other years after their special evening together.

Will they find each other before it is too late?

How to lose a guy in 10 days (2003)

This is the perfect feel good film - there are highs, lows and lots of laughs.

Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) is an advertising executive and ladies’ man who bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) works for “Composure” magazine and is assigned to write an article on “How to Lose a Guy in 10 days.”

When the two get set up they both have very different goals in the relationship.

The Notebook (2004)

The classic ‘love across the divide’ story, this movie is set in the 1940s and the story unfolds in Seabrook Island, South Carolina.

Ryan Gosling plays country boy Noah and Rachel McAdams takes on the role of young heiress Allie.

The pair’s romance is short-lived after an argument breaks out with her parents.

Both continue to hold a torch for one another and years later, their paths cross again.

The Vow (2012)

The film opens with a hopelessly romantic scene that makes your heart melt.

Paige (Rachel McAdams) unclips her seatbelt so she can lean in for a kiss with her besotted husband Leo (Channing Tatum).

Then disaster strikes and their car is wiped out by a truck.

Both survive, but Paige’s memory is shattered, so much so that she has no recollection of marrying Leo or even falling in love with him. Watch as Leo struggles to cope with the rejection and tries to make her fall in love all over again.
