30 romantic movie quotes to tell someone you love this Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Oh no... you forgot? Don't worry, we're here to help with the best romantic movie quotes of all time. Just send your other half a couple of these and all will be forgiven, right? *LOL*

Whether you're the sort of person who balks at the idea of soulmates, or you secretly love watching soppy films in secret, we can all agree that there's nothing quite like movie love. Sure, there may be obstacles - misunderstandings can keep characters apart, pushy friends can convince them they're better off on their own, the male lead might have to help some Hobbits take an evil ring to Mordor - but in the end, we all know it's going to work out because it's Hollywood.

Thanks to a combination of soaring music and heartfelt performances, romantic movies can make even the most stone-hearted of us weak at the knees and misty-eyed when we hear some of these lines about love. From Moulin Rouge to The Princess Bride, here's 30 romantic movie quotes perfect for this Valentine's Day. 

So, go find someone you love (or just like very much, just as they are) and quote one of these romantic movie lines to them… chances are you’ll get a date. And if not, well, they’re still all great movies too.
