In an unofficial survey, we found Columbus residents prefer the timeless classics. Check out their picks for favorite romantic movie.
Movie: “Love Story” (1970)
“I loved the story and that memorable line, ‘Love means never having to say you’re sorry.’ It still gets me today just talking about it, but, then, I’m an ol’ softy.”
Movie: “You’ve Got Mail” (1998)
“It’s a contemporary twist on classic romance. It tied in my generation’s approach to communication. It makes me cry every time.”
Movie: “Pretty Woman” (1990)
“It’s a good love story. My favorite scene is when Julia Robert’s character is at the opera. It’s just so sweet. She really doesn’t know how to act.”
Movie: “Adam’s Rib” (1949)
“It’s one of those movies that survives well through time. It’s well written and had outstanding actors. And there was a certain charisma about Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.”
Movie: “The Notebook” (2004)
“The movie is just heart wrenching and sweet; just to have a love that’s that strong, no matter what.”
Movie: “Forrest Gump” (1994)
“You don’t normally think about it as a love story, but Forrest is always there for Jenny. Even though he’s simple, he’s a good man. I get tears in my eyes every time, when he’s at the grave talking to her about the boy.”
