The Most Romantic Grand Gestures in the Movies ...


It doesn’t matter if movies give us unrealistic expectations of romance.

We love to see over-the-top moments, unrealistic love stories coming true, mis-matched couples coming together against the odds.

Movie romance is movie magic and sometimes, the cheesier the better.

There’s nothing quite like grand romantic gestures in the movies to give us the feels.2
