Movies are a treasure trove of witty one-liners and elaborate words you can use in the context of romance. Check out our list of the best ones!
Some guys don’t know all the right things to say, but even if they don’t, they might know a few right things to say, and sometimes, more often than not, that’s also enough.
I happen to be a sucker for great quotes, and I tend to fall in love with a song not because of the melody, but because of the lyrics. There is nothing more romantic than hearing someone tell you something that only sounds like it was taken right out of a movie.
Just like in matters of love and relationships, if you know there are some things that always work like a charm, why wouldn’t you use them on your guy or gal? With that said, romantic movie quotes are things we know would often work. We know they work because those same lines managed to pull on our heartstrings when we watched them.
The best movie lines to use on someone you like
When you simply can’t come up with anything romantic to say, look to these sweet lines to sweep your guy or gal off their feet.

#9 Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you. – Dirty Dancing

#21 Sometimes, the things you want the most don’t happen and what you least expect happens. I don’t know – you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed forever. – Love and Other Drugs
#22 It doesn’t matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other. – Good Will Hunting
#23 I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all. – 10 Things I Hate About You
#24 I would rather have had one breath of her hair, one kiss of her mouth, one touch of her hand, than eternity without it. One. – City of Angels

#28 I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is. – Forrest Gump
#29 I wish I knew how to quit you. – Brokeback Mountain

If anyone were to say these great lines to me, I would absolutely melt inside. What girl wouldn’t want a handsome guy she likes telling her all the things she has only actually heard and known to be true in movies, but dreamed about happening in real life?
There is a reason some girls tell guys they know all the right things to say. My guess is they have probably taken some notes from watching romantic movies or reading a great love story. As cheesy as you might think it seems, it works, and it works really, really well.
So the next time you desperately want to say something romantic to make your girl or guy swoon, but you find yourself getting tongue tied, just remember some of these incredible movie quotes and use them.
