Continuing the discussion. . .

What makes a good Romantic movie??

Plot?
Actors and Actresses?
Music?
How close it is to real life?

And, why do we like Romance movies?  Do they help us to still believe that Romance exists?  Do they bring us closer together?  Do they let us escape???

I await your thoughts. . .

Hmm..
Some part of it is the actors/actresses...Hmm..
Can we say...ROBIN WILLIAMS? He gives a great performance!

As for the rest of it...well, I'm not sure how I define romance anymore.  
In "My Best Friend's Wedding" I thought the whole scene at the end with Julia Roberts and her male friend was romantic. Call me weird, but I liked it.

Oh! this should be easy to answer
No poetry involved
My favorite romantic movie
Is Tarrraaaaaa!  "Dream Team" with Michael Keaton on a field trip from a mental recovery institution trying to impress an old girl friend.
"Quick Change" with Bill Murray and Gena Davis another somewhat romantic funny movie
"Benny and Joon" with Johnny Depp romantically sad
"Coneheads" with Dan Akroid and Chris Farley i found the movie romantically alien
"Bitter Moon" with Peter Coyote and Hugh Grant romantically twisted

there have been many great romantic movies written over the years, relatively recent ones like -when harry met sally- sleepless.. etc are great movies, but do they really compare with the likes of casablanca, an american in paris, the african queen, west side story, and on and on..lol--- i suppose one of my favorites though would have to be bridges of madison county.

Ah yes. . . the classics. . . you have to love them all. . .

One of my favorites is a movie called Intermezzo it's the first movie by a then-new Ingrid Bergman. . . it's about a pianist who falls in love with a violinist (played by Leslie Howard) and it's wonderful. . . simply wonderful. . . *sigh*. . .

Can't beat the classics. . . they will live on forever. . .
