Love is all around us. Whether you’re just starting your first relationship or celebrating your awesome group of BFFs, there’s something for which we should all take a moment to appreciate: the people who we have been lucky to find in this world and with whom we choose to spend our days. As a tribute to all the different types of love out there, here is our list of movies that we’d be happy to watch with any of our loved ones.
Princess Bride: Love Conquering All
A sweet and epic journey where long lost loves come back dressed in black, are immune to poison, and have best friends that say things like, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.“
Favorite Scene: When Westley is helpless and weak from being tortured but slowly regains his strength.
Death Becomes Her: BFF Love
Two gals bond over a love of vanity and the immensity of eternal life.
Favorite Scene: When Madeline has her head completely twisted backwards but Ernest still drives her to the hospital thinking that she just has a dislocated neck.
A Woman Is A Woman: Taking-it-to-the-next-level Love
A young strip tease dancer wants to take the next step with her live-in boyfriend but he’s not into it.
Favorite Scene: Angela and Emile use their bookshelf when they get into an argument and highlight their feelings on the books.
Love Me If You Dare: Crazy Ass Love
Ever been in an intense relationship where you couldn’t concentrate on anything else in your life because it totally consumed you in every aspect? Well, you’ve got nothing on Sophie and Julien, who have that going on plus an ongoing, epic game of dare the’ve been playing since they were kids.
Favorite Scene: There are so many good ones in this film, but the kiss on top of the car is as good as it gets.
Ever After: Medieval Love
A sweet and strong-minded girl accidentally meets the Prince of France, who becomes completely charmed by her. Her evil stepmom and stepsisters trap her in the basement the night of a totally important party, but Leonardo da Vinci helps her escape to the party with a brand new makeover.
Are you like, “why have you told me the entire movie?”
The movie is a rendition of Cinderella, so it’s not really so much about the plot as it is about that one scene where Drew Barrymore is dressed like an angel with glittery face make-up we’ve all tried but failed to recreate in high school.
Favorite Scene: See above!
The Science of Sleep: Sleepy Love
A dreamy boy (he’s both dreamy and he dreams a lot) develops a crush on his neighbor but is too shy and unsure of what to do until she starts appearing in his dreams.
Favorite Scene: When Stéphanie and Stéphane are hanging out and he shows her his 1 second time machine.
5TH Element: Love Saves The World
Set in the future where everyone wears Jean-Paul Gaultier. A disenchanted taxi driver meets the girl of his dreams and finds out that she is a super human, created to save the world.
Favorite Scene: When Leelo is hanging out at the Priest’s apartment and uses the Chanel instant eye compact.
Casper: Ghost Love
A wide-eyed girl moves into a semi-spooky haunted house with her Dad, a ghost hunter searching for his deceased wife. The girl meets a friendly ghost named Casper, who she later finds out is Devon Sawa.
Favorite Scene: When we find out that Casper is actually Devon Sawa.
Simply Irresistible: Food Love
A girl has the ability to make people feel different emotions with her food, which she uses to start a relationship with Tom, a cute but emotionally cut-off guy who works at Henri Bendel.
Favorite Scene: When Tom tries one of Amanda’s éclairs for the first time.
