Maybe you should look at it as more than just a love story. Just because it's universally regarded as a romantic flick, it doesn't mean that it hasn't many other different levels in it too. It's about one man's struggle to put the past behind him (and not his just his ex-lover).

It's also about a man with issues hiding behind a 'mask' of cynicism.

Granted it is blatently a love story but there are more levels in the movie.

Oh yeah sorry for those classics I missed out on. I just went with my favourites. Its too broad a genre to have a poll on anyway. My mistake.

Moonstruck

" No, that's not what I
mean. Loretta, I love you. Not
like they told you love is and I
didn't know this either. But love
don't make things nice, it ruins
everything, it breaks your heart,
it makes things a mess. We're not
here to make things perfect.
Snowflakes are perfect. The stars
are perfect. Not us. We are here
to ruin ourselves and break our
hearts and love the wrong people
and die! The storybooks are
bull****. Come upstairs with me,
baby! Don't try to live your life
out to somebody else's idea of
sweet happiness. Don't try to
live on milk and cookies when what
you want is meat! Red meat just
like me! It's wolves run with
wolves and nothing else! You're a
wolf just like me!

Truely Madly Deeply.

A film which is poignantly romantic without making you feel like you just ate 6 bags of Skittles. One of my all-time favourite movies and the best romantic film I've seen.

Truely madly deeply was good but more then romance was the feeling of cold which seemed to come out of the screen and lech way all the heat in the room

Given the options I voted Titanic, But I reckon that Sleepless in Seatle was a good one. I'm sure there are many more of course, but that sticks in my head.
