8. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days

Some have described this romantic comedy and one of the best of the last twenty-years. Starring Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson, How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days was a monster hit.

5. Romeo & Juliet

Arguably the most recognisable love story ever told - even though technically it is classed as a ‘tragedy’. Romeo & Juliet, throughout the years has been adapted for the silver-screen numerous times, but Baz Luhrmann’s modern-take on the Shakespeare classic makes it onto a list.

Stylistic, romantic, lively, Luhrmann effortlessly captured the nuance of Shakespeare’s writing whilst bring Romeo & Juliet to audiences like never before. Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes deliver epic performances and ignite the screen. For DiCaprio, the movie would prepare him for another love story, but more of that later on in the countdown.
