These are some of my favorite movie couples.
Baby and Johnny from Dirty Dancing
How can you not love them? They both have extremely obvious chemistry. I think it’s funny and pretty much a major testament to their acting abilities that the pair didn’t get along in real life. They were able to sell it on screen in the most convincing way possible.
Sam and Molly from Ghost
Even though Sam dies in the movie and becomes a Ghost, it’s obvious the love that Sam and Molly had. We get to see that in the Unchained Melody scene especially. I just really love how much the two cared for each other.
Princess Buttercup and Wesley from The Princess Bride
By far my favorite movie and couple. Wesley was her farmboy but we all know that “As You Wish” is one of the best lines in movie history. All of the lines the two share about love makes even the hardest heart crumble just a little bit. I mean, even death couldn’t keep the two from reuniting which is rather romantic if you ask me.
Latika and Jamal from Slumdog Millionare
This is a really tragic movie but the ending is beautiful. This couple endures horrible circumstances together. Jamal gets separated from Latika but he never forgets her and he always dreams of finding her. “This is our destiny” is one of my favorite lines. I just absolutely adore Jamal’s endless dedication to Latika.
Pat and Tiffany from Silver Linings Playbook
Two people that suffer from mental illness and who feel as if no one really understands them. After Pat comes to his friend Ronnie’s house for dinner, things change for him. That’s where he meets Ronnie’s wife Veronica’s sister Tiffany. Tiffany is a widow who also understands mental illness. Her and Pat bond instantly over the medication that they’ve both taken in a heartwarming and hilarious scene. Yeah, the two definitely fight the romance to the point where you doubt the relationship is going to happen entirely. But it’s not a cliché type relationship, it’s real and that’s why I love it.
Allie and Noah from The Notebook
Obviously, I have to mention the book. But I’d feel weird leaving the movie couple off of this list. In my mind, they are one of the best simply due to the chemistry these two bring to the screen. They make the couple seem very much alive. The love story itself is so touching and you can’t help but love it.
Ellie and Carl from Up
Yes, this is an animated Pixar film. But it’s also one of the most beautiful love stories I’ve ever watched unfold that’s under about 30 minutes. We watch the pair age together and more importantly, dream together. This is the only Pixar movie besides Toy Story 3 that’s ever made me cry and this movie just really touched me.
