1. Twilight (I) (2008)

PG-13 | 122 min | Drama, Fantasy, Romance

56 Metascore

A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.

Director: Catherine Hardwicke | Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, Sarah Clarke

Votes: 374,361 | Gross: $191.47M

Not since Romeo and Juliet have we fallen in love with a couple like we did with Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart), whose romance is at the center of the "Twilight" universe. Of course, we're fans of Taylor Lautner's Jacob, too, but this relationship is what keeps us thirsty for more big-screen adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's vampire books.

2. Titanic (1997)

PG-13 | 194 min | Drama, Romance

75 Metascore

A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.

Director: James Cameron | Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates

Votes: 890,668 | Gross: $659.33M

Oh, Leo, you did it again! In 1997, the Oscar-nominated actor joined Kate Winslet in a coupling so perfect and so memorable that it stole the show from one of the most famous shipwrecks in history. Sure, James Cameron's special effects impressed us, but it's the scenes with the resourceful Jack and rebellious Rose that compel us to watch this movie over and over.

3. The Notebook (2004)

PG-13 | 123 min | Drama, Romance

53 Metascore

A poor yet passionate young man falls in love with a rich young woman, giving her a sense of freedom, but they are soon separated because of their social differences.

Director: Nick Cassavetes | Stars: Gena Rowlands, James Garner, Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling

Votes: 444,884 | Gross: $81.00M

I dare you to watch this movie about the lifelong love between Ryan Gosling's Noah and Rachel McAdams' Allie in "The Notebook," without crying. Despite having seen the former real-life couple fight, pine for each other, and make out in the rain many, many times before, I'll gladly view this Nicholas Sparks tearjerker with you.

4. Juno (2007)

PG-13 | 96 min | Comedy, Drama

81 Metascore

Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, an offbeat young woman makes an unusual decision regarding her unborn child.

Director: Jason Reitman | Stars: Ellen Page, Michael Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman

Votes: 449,365 | Gross: $143.50M

10 years after "Titanic," Ellen Page and Michael Cera charmed us as a pregnant teen and her quirky baby daddy in "Juno." How? By acting somewhat similar to actual teenagers, which is more than we can say for most movies. Oh, and their sweet duet of "Anyone Else But You" was a nice touch.

5. Romeo + Juliet (1996)

PG-13 | 120 min | Drama, Romance

60 Metascore

Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue.

Director: Baz Luhrmann | Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, John Leguizamo, Harold Perrineau

Votes: 185,707 | Gross: $46.35M

My heart truly stopped for a moment when Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio's star-crossed lovers locked eyes through the fish tank in Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet." I didn't always know exactly what the two were saying -- the film kept the dialogue of Shakespeare's 400-year-old play -- yet I understood enough to agree when Romeo uttered the line, "I never saw true beauty 'til this night."

6. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

PG-13 | 97 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

70 Metascore

A pretty, popular teenager can't go out on a date until her ill-tempered older sister does.

Director: Gil Junger | Stars: Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Larisa Oleynik

Votes: 252,428 | Gross: $38.18M

I Must Use Only 1 Word to Describe The Chemistry Between Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) and Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles): C-U-T-E!!!

7. (500) Days of Summer (2009)

PG-13 | 95 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

76 Metascore

An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn't believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her.

Director: Marc Webb | Stars: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Geoffrey Arend, Chloë Grace Moretz

Votes: 420,231 | Gross: $32.39M

Seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel fall in and out of love in 2009's "(500) Days of Summer" was such an emotional roller coaster ride that we walked away with all the same feelings we leave a relationship with -- regret, optimism, and the thought that although we're sad it's over, it was fantastic while it lasted.

8. Atonement (2007)

R | 123 min | Drama, Mystery, Romance

85 Metascore

Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a thirteen-year-old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's lover of a crime he did not commit.

Director: Joe Wright | Stars: Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Brenda Blethyn, Saoirse Ronan

Votes: 215,512 | Gross: $50.93M

Just when you thought it was safe to put those tissues away, Keira Knightley and James McAvoy came along with their British accents and World War II-era wardrobes and forced us to pull them out again with "Atonement." Robbie and Cecilia's tragic story, which left me all holding our breath to see when they would reunite, is not for the faint of heart, but it's beautiful if you can stick with it.

9. Garden State (2004)

R | 102 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

67 Metascore

A quietly troubled young man returns home for his mother's funeral after being estranged from his family for a decade.

Director: Zach Braff | Stars: Zach Braff, Peter Sarsgaard, Natalie Portman, Ian Holm

Votes: 196,926 | Gross: $26.78M

In 2004's "Garden State," Zach Braff and Natalie Portman's offbeat characters were not sexy or even that likable on their own, but together, they were golden. Suddenly, Zach's Andrew was much less depressing and pathetic, and Natalie's Sam made a lot more sense.

10. Knocked Up (2007)

R | 129 min | Comedy, Romance

85 Metascore

For fun-loving party animal Ben Stone, the last thing he ever expected was for his one-night stand to show up on his doorstep eight weeks later to tell him she's pregnant with his child.

Director: Judd Apatow | Stars: Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann

Votes: 319,900 | Gross: $148.73M

Thanks to Seth Rogen's name and face on the poster, "Knocked Up" was a movie boyfriends and husbands actually wanted to see with their girlfriends and wives. And they loved it as much as I did! Seth's Ben and Katherine Heigl's Alison made a couple that was both cute and sarcastic. Their relationship was just as dysfunctional as many of our own ... only much, much funnier.

11. Dear John (I) (2010)

PG-13 | 108 min | Drama, Romance, War

43 Metascore

A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he's home on leave.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Richard Jenkins, Henry Thomas

Votes: 120,077 | Gross: $80.01M

Movies based on writer Nicholas Sparks' books should come with a warning they may cause uncontrollable tears. Case in point: this year's "Dear John," in which the sexy Channing Tatum and the always likable Amanda Seyfried star as Savannah and John, a sweet couple separated while he heroically serves in the military and ... sniff ... can someone please hand me a box of tissues?

12. Slumdog Millionaire (2008)

R | 120 min | Drama, Romance

86 Metascore

A Mumbai teen reflects on his upbringing in the slums when he is accused of cheating on the Indian Version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"

Directors: Danny Boyle, Loveleen Tandan | Stars: Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Saurabh Shukla, Anil Kapoor

Votes: 710,030 | Gross: $141.32M

Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are yet another example of young Hollywood stars who turned an on-screen pairing into an off-screen affair. And after watching their characters Jamal and Latika survive years of separation and edge-of-your-seat adventures in "Slumdog Millionaire," I'm definitely rooting for them.

13. Drumline (2002)

PG-13 | 118 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

63 Metascore

A band director recruits a Harlem street drummer to play at a Southern university.

Director: Charles Stone III | Stars: Nick Cannon, Zoe Saldana, Orlando Jones, Leonard Roberts

Votes: 30,359 | Gross: $56.40M

Long before she landed roles in two of 2009's biggest movies, "Star Trek" and "Avatar," Zoe Saldana won a place in the hearts of moviegoers -- and Nick Cannon's character Devon -- in the 2002 movie "Drumline." The chemistry between the actress and the future Mr. Mariah Carey was so strong the duo snagged a nomination for best kiss at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards.

14. Guess Who (2005)

PG-13 | 105 min | Comedy, Romance

49 Metascore

A young woman, Theresa, brings her boyfriend, Simon, home to meet her parents and surprise them with the news of their engagement. Another surprise: Simon is white.

Director: Kevin Rodney Sullivan | Stars: Ashton Kutcher, Bernie Mac, Zoe Saldana, Judith Scott

Votes: 36,536 | Gross: $68.92M

Ashton Kutcher and Zoe Saldana played husband-and-wife-to-be Simon and Theresa and in 2005's "Guess Who," an updated version of 1967's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." While the "Punk'd" producer is no Sidney Poitier, we could definitely see why Zoe's Theresa wanted to spend the rest of her life with him, no matter what her family thought.

15. The Last Song (2010)

PG | 107 min | Drama, Music, Romance

33 Metascore

A rebellious girl is sent to a Southern beach town for the summer to stay with her father. Through their mutual love of music, the estranged duo learn to reconnect.

Director: Julie Anne Robinson | Stars: Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Greg Kinnear, Bobby Coleman

Votes: 68,676 | Gross: $62.95M

Teen queen Miley Cyrus and her co-star Liam Hemsworth found real-life love while filming their roles in the Nicholas Sparks-penned romance "The Last Song." The budding actress told Parade she "went [to the set] thinking the summer was about me and getting focused on my career. But I guess God was like, 'Girl, here is this amazing guy.'"
