A few years ago, it rained on Valentine's Day, so we rented a couple romantic movies and ordered some food delivered. It was a fun and really sweet Valentine's Day, even though we stayed at home.
So, here is a list of the Top 5 Most Romantic Films ever made. Hope you can find one that both you and your significant other can enjoy, brought to you by all of us at Anderson Behel, the finest body shop in Silicon Valley:
1.) When Harry Met Sally (1989)
Starring: Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan
What It's About: Harry (Crystal) meets Sally (Ryan) when she gives him a ride to New York after they both graduate from the University of Chicago. They part ways, deciding that a man and woman can't simply be friends without romantic feelings getting in the way. They run into each other several times over the years, always facing the same question: Are they just friends, or is their relationship something more?

Our Favorite Romantic Quote: "You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-You-Are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, 'Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness.' You call yourself a free spirit, a wild thing, and you're terrified somebody's going to stick you in a cage. Well, baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the West by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somaliland. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."
4.) Sleepless in Seattle (1993)
Starring: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan
What It's About: A recent widower (Hanks) and his son move from Chicago to Seattle to escape the grief of his wife's death. On Christmas Eve, he calls into a national radio show and pours his heart out about how much he still misses his wife. This catches the attention of a Baltimore-based newspaper writer (Ryan), who falls in love with him immediately, despite being engaged to be married.
Our Favorite Romantic Quote: "Destiny is something we've invented because we can't stand the fact that everything that happens is accidental."
5.) An Affair to Remember (1957)

Our Favorite Romantic Quote: "There must be something between us, even if it's only an ocean."
