As You Wish

I wrote a post about romantic movies for The Pioneer Woman.
It's up today!

Wild Hearts Can't be Broken didn't make the cut.  I wanted to include it but to tell the truth...I couldn't remember it enough to talk about it....but in my heart...I remembered it being a sweet love story.  But mainly because it has the enigmatic Michael Schoeffling in it!! 

Also this morning I remembered The English Patient.
Oh!  And Out of Africa with it's flying and hand holding and hair washing.
And French Kiss with Kevin Klein and Meg Ryan.  I can't seem to find French Kiss to rent or buy.  I have looked many times.  

Head on over to The Pioneer Woman's website to see my favorite romantic movies.
I'm having a fun time reading the comments and seeing all the great romantic movies I didn't choose.  I am also so surprised when people comment to say they haven't seem any of them.  Imagine that!  :o)

Have fun reading the list.

Encourage one another,
Donna aka Miz Boo


  1. There were three on your list I haven't seen. I will search high and low and watch them soon. Romantic movies in February? Yes, please. Even if I have to watch them by myself. ;)
    Roman Holiday is one of my favorites. Then I thought about The Quiet Man. Does that one count as a romantic movie?

    OOOOhhhh, such a fun post. I loved the 80's flick Some Kind of Wonderful more than Say Anything. I think it was the smallest, least popular of the Brat Pack films. I think it was the most romantic, maybe because I am a tom boy. :)

    1. Some Kind of Wonderful is one of my top 5 for sure!

    2. I also loved Some Kind of Wonderful! Great flick!

  3. So delighted with this! I have wonderful movies to rewatch this month! love you xoxo

  4. Great post! I own French Kiss and I love it - Kevin Kline and Meg Ryan are two of my favs.

    Under the Tuscan Sun is such a good book, I was disappointed in the movie ... most of which wasn't in the book! But ... it sure is purdy to look at. Have you read it??

    You've Got Mail and Something's Gotta Give are also beloved - I would love to live in Meg Ryan's apartment OR Diane Keaton's beach house! I love love love the very last scene at the restaurant :-)

    I need to see Jane Eyre. Soon!

    As for Persuasion, you know I am loyal to the other version. I like the fellow with Sally, but not Sally.

    Thanks, Donna!

    Indeed, a lovely list of romantic movies from you Donna, thanks!
    We have DVDs of The Princess Bride and The Man from Snowy River which is the movie I wrote about on your PW post. Would My Big Fat Greek Wedding count as romantic....we liked that one enough to buy the DVD, too? Great to see you back at the PW blog again. love and prayers, jep

    I totally enjoyed your PW post and many of them are my favorites too. I also love Moonstruck, Crossing Delancey, and the very quirky The Accidental Tourist with Geena Davis. Chick flicks are a great idea for the month of February which can be rather drawn out and winterish.

      Crossing Delancey, what a great movie! jep

  7. Ohhh!!! Wild Hearts can't be broken was my absolute favorite! It tore my 14 year-old heart just to bits. :-)

  8. Hi Donna - coming out of lurkdom to say that French Kiss is one of my fave rom coms! Wanted to let you know the DVD is available to buy through Amazon, but I would be happy to send you my extra copy. I just treated myself and ordered the BluRay version since the scenery is so beautiful and so now I don't need my other one. Let me know if you would like it, I can put it in the mail....

    I loved your list on PW by the way. I've seen most of them and the ones I haven't I'm writing down for a rainy(or snowy at this time of year!) day as we seem to similar taste in movies. Wishing you and all the QL readers a great weekend!

    Love your list! Most would make mine, too. A few others favorites are Return to Me, Love Actually, Leap Year and Man in the Moon. Man in the Moon is more of a coming of age story, but with several love stories within it. Agree with you about Mr. Darcy (although I dearly love him), but I would add Sense and Sensibility to my list. Snowy winter days seem perfect for movie watching, don't they? :)
