There's nothing better than having the time to watch a favorite movie, at really any time of day, but there's something extra amazing about romantic films. Often deemed "chick flicks" or pushed under a label for women only to then be scrutinized, these movies have a special place in cinema and its history. While the list is longer than one can imagine, there are around ten romantic films that always seem to be in the back of my mind and on the screen when I need it. Below is a list of those films with trailers included and a blurb of the plot from their individual IMDB pages.
