Six Unforgettable Movie Couples of All-Time

These film couples gave us a whirlwind of emotions. We laughed, cried, got angry, and most of all, believed in the power of love. The impact of their movies on our lives will probably stick with us forever. Well, at least it won’t be difficult to rewatch their films, especially because subscription-based video streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu are just a click away these days. Here are some of the most unforgettable movie couples that we still love today.

The Notebook’s Noah and Allie

This is one of several of Nicholas Spark’s novels that was adapted into film. All credit goes to the lead stars of the show — Ryan Gosling, who played Noah, and Rachel McAdams, who played Allie. The Notebook’s plot was set in 1940, and the story revolved around a country boy and a rich city girl who fell in love. Because of their different social statuses, they were forced to separate. According to The Numbers, this 2004 movie earned a whopping $115 million at the box office, against a $30 million production budget. If you haven’t watched this masterpiece, well it’s still not over. Rotten Tomatoes suggests that you could stream it on HBO Max and Amazon Prime Video.

Titanic’s Jack and Rose

If you had to get a cash loan just to watch this film, it was probably worth it. Although it was a tragic ending for both Leonardo DeCaprio and Kate Winslet’s character, the movie couple still showed us a side of love that we haven’t seen on the big screen. Titanic was directed by James Cameron and it was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, winning 11, including Best Picture and Best Director. Winslet, on the other hand, got nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress to her credit, but unfortunately lost. The film was once the king of the world after it garnered a breathtaking $2 billion in revenue. That crown, however, was snatched by another James Cameron film: Avatar.

Brokeback Mountain’s Jack and Ennis

Warning, this film is so perfect that it might break your heart. This movie was about a forbidden love between two married men. It starred Jake Gyllenhaal as Jack and Heath Ledger as Ennis. This was Ang Lee’s best directorial investment, considering he was known for directing action movies before this. To his credit, He won Best Director at the Academy Awards. Brokeback Mountain was a box-office hit, earning $176 million or 12.7 times its production budget. Since we don’t want to spoil the plot for you, you can watch this one-of-a-kind big-screen offering on Netflix and Apple TV. Just make sure to have a tissue box beside you.

When Harry Met Sally’s Harry and Sally

This film stars Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. They later  have a disagreement regarding whether men and women can have a platonic friendship. Over the years, their paths keep crossing. From then on, build an extraordinary relationship. In case you watch this with your partner, ready yourself, as it is quite provocative. Make sure to finish the movie first before cuddling.

Ghost’s Molly and Sam

The love between these two is beyond life. After his friend took his life, Sam Wheat (played by Patrick Swayze) becomes a powerless ghost. His grieving fiance, Molly Jensen, was played by Demi Moore. In order to protect her from those who harmed him, he sought help from psychic in Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg). It was kind of creepy at first, but the degree of love Sam had for Molly was beyond unconditional.

Pretty Woman’s Edward and Vivian

Top-billed by Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Pretty Woman is a film about a decent businessman who hired an escort. She did not just do him favors but also took his heart away. The film was released in March 23, 1990, and it made over $400 million in the box office. According to Rotten Tomatoes, you can rent, buy, or stream this movie on FandangoNow or VUDU.
