The Notebook (2004)

We know for a fact you have watched this one. And if not, you have heard of it. This wouldn’t be a real romance movie list if it didn’t include The Notebook! However, if you are part of the 1% of the population that doesn’t know this movie, it is about a wealthy girl who meets a mill worker and falls in love with him. However, once he goes away to fight in World War II, everyone believes their relationship to be over. 

Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Although these movie suggestions are light-hearted, some are just classic, girly, and timeless. Below are three films that are always great ideas to watch alone, with a girlfriend, and especially with mom!  

Little Women (1949, 1994, 2019)

This classic story will warm your heart. (We’re partial to the 1994 version, for its stellar cast and performances…including a very young Christian Bale.)
