Top 10 Romantic Movies Even Guys Love




They may not run around bragging about it to their friends, but deep down every man has a soft spot for a good love story. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Romantic Movies Even Guys Love.



For this list, we’ll be looking at romantic films that your boyfriend, husband, brother, and father secretly can’t get enough of.





#10: “Annie Hall” (1977)




Woody Allen’s seminal romantic comedy about the banality of life and the perplexing nature of human relationships is one of the director’s all time best. The film is an intellectual examination of love and sexuality that ignores all of the conventions of the modern rom-com. From breaking the fourth wall and giving his characters mental subtitles to the simple fact that the protagonists don’t end up together, “Annie Hall” is truly a unique cinematic experience. Perhaps that’s why men and women alike continue to find it so appealing.





#9: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004)




Honestly, who doesn’t love this movie? A subtle sci-fi rom-com unlike any you’ve ever seen, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” is set in a world where people can have their painful memories erased. Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet are fantastic in the lead roles, with equally strong supporting performances from Mark Ruffalo, Elijah Wood, and Kirsten Dunst. A critical and commercial success, the film is sweet and hilarious, quirky and heartfelt, and above all a wholly unique story about two people falling in and out of love. You can lock this one in as your next date night movie.





#8: “500 Days of Summer” (2009)




Joseph Gordon-Levitt is an absolute revelation in this film, turning in a sweet and salty performance that has something for everyone. While your male companion will probably be more focused on the always-lovely Zooey Deschanel, that doesn’t mean he won’t enjoy all the other quirks this film has to offer. The movie has a nonlinear narrative unlike any you’ve seen before, skipping to different points in the tumultuous relationship between the titular Summer and Tom, an aspiring architect working at a run-of-the-mill greeting card company. “500 Days of Summer” is dripping in style and wit and will definitely have you examining your own relationship by the time the credits roll.




#7: “Before Sunrise series




If you enjoy watching talented actors walk around European cities discussing life and love, then this film trilogy is for you. After a serendipitous meeting aboard a European train, a young American backpacker and a vacationing French student decide to spend the day together wandering the streets of Vienna. As the years – and films – roll by, the two struggle to bridge the gap between their very different lives. Jesse and Céline have the love story many wish they had. Being able to watch their story unfold over the course of three decades is an absolute treat. Grab your significant other and settle in for one of the most romantic film series ever made.





#6: “The Princess Bride” (1987)




Try to watch this movie without busting a gut laughing. Go ahead, we dare you. The film tells the story of Buttercup and Westley, two star-crossed lovers who will do anything to be together. “The Princess Bride” is the definition of an 80s classic. The film is peppered with fantastically hilarious and wholly original moments the likes of which haven’t been matched since. Carey Elwes and Robin Wright lead a stellar cast whose strengths are on full display from start to finish. Honestly, if your man doesn’t enjoy this film then he is beyond saving.





#5: “La La Land” (2016)




Guys and musicals don’t always mix, but director Damien Chazelle’s Los Angeles set flick about an aspiring actress and her tumultuous relationship with an up-and-coming jazz musician doesn’t feel like a musical. The film explores the tenuous nature of going after your dreams, something we can all relate to. “La La Land” is visually stunning and jam-packed with star performances lead by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, the latter of which took home an Academy Award for her performance. If you still haven’t seen this film, we recommend dropping everything and dashing home immediately. No seriously, go!





#4: “When Harry Met Sally…” (1989)




The best films are the ones that can stand the test of time. “When Harry Met Sally…” is as good now as it was when it was first released. A sharp-witted rom-com starring two actors at the top of their game, the film made millions, won numerous awards, and is consistently ranked among the funniest movies of all time. However, that’s not why guys love it. The film avoids the typical pitfalls of the romantic comedy genre and puts forth a number of relationship-related issues that had previously been ignored on screen. In the end, the film is a warm reminder of the fact that if you fail, you can always try again.





#3: “Lost in Translation” (2003)




When Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson headline a film you can bet your bottom dollar that both sexes will be down to see it. “Lost in Translation” is the story of a fading movie star who travels to Tokyo to shoot a commercial. While there, he strikes up a relationship with a young, newly married woman. Directed by Sofia Coppola, the film is a beautifully shot and well-acted dramedy that was nominated for four Academy Awards. The chemistry between Murray and Johansson is palpable and will grab your attention every time they appear on screen together. This is a must watch for any and all movie buffs.





#2: “The Graduate” (1967)




When recent college grad Benjamin Braddock returns home to devise a plan for his future, his world is turned upside down when he enters into an adulterous affair with a much older woman, Mrs. Robinson. A classic of 60s cinema, “The Graduate” is far from your typical love story, as an awkward love triangle soon develops between Benjamin, Mrs. Robinson, and her daughter, Elaine. The film turned Dustin Hoffman and the folk-rock due Simon & Garfunkel into household names and was nominated for seven Academy Awards. As of 2007, the film is ranked 17th on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time. So yeah, it’s worth checking out.





Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:



“Crazy, Stupid, Love” (2011)





“Casablanca” (1942)





“Love Actually” (2003)





#1: “Titanic” (1997)




James Cameron’s semi-fictionalized retelling of one of the greatest shipwrecks in history broke all kinds of records when it was first released. Aided considerably by two star-making performances from Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, the film pushed the boundaries of what could be accomplished on the silver screen. From the sets, to the effects, and everything in between, the film has a little something for everyone, which makes sense, because it appears as if the whole world saw it when it came out. And if you don’t believe us, go check how much money it took home at the box office. We’ll give you a hint: it’s more than $2 billion.
