Top 5 Romantic Films

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, what’s more fitting than Romantic Films to watch. This is a few of my favourites.

  1. 50 First Dates
50 First Dates (2004), Directed by Peter Segal.

Henry Roth (Adam Sandler) is afraid of commitment and has always had a series of women with no strings attached, that is until he meets Lucy Whitmore (Drew Barrymore). However, Lucy suffers from short-term memory loss and Henry works to make her fall in love with him everyday.


2. Love Actually

Although this is technically a Christmas film, it is perfectly acceptable to watch all year round. Love Actually follows the lives of 8 completely different couples in a frantic month, leading up to Christmas.

4. The Proposal
