    Well what have you already seen?

    I'd go for Love Actually - top film, really funny! Unless you've seen it of course. :cool:

    The best rental I've seen recently was 'Into The Blue' with Paul Walker and Jessica Alba. Part under water tropical stuff, part thriller, part action, and Jessica Alba in a Bikini for most of it :devil:

    Difficult weve seen Love actually and both really love this film. Something along those lines would be great. We dont watch that many romantic movies so there should be a few out there we ahvent seen.

    How about 'quirkier' options? My girlfriend and I watched 'The Station Agent' and 'Pieces of April' recently and really enjoyed them both - diferent takes on relationships, family, etc. Both really worth watching.

    Or how about 'Beautiful Girls' - slightly older but again, a brilliant take on relationships amongst a group of friends.

    Hope you get something sorted :smashin:

    if you haven't already seen it, let me suggest "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind", it's a different sort of romance movie but very worth seeing

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I narrowed it down to Eternal Sunshine, The Constant Gardner or a mystery choice? Which of course she went for. I happened on this movie whilst searching the online section of our video store and as we have been watching a lot of Westwing lately it attracted my attention. The mrs is a politics student so coming up with a film that features both politics and a romance was an ace card. We both really enjoyed the film and it must have been the inspiration for the Westwing series as several actors, names and quotes are reused in the series!

    So a really nice evening was had by us both.;) Thanks

    Wag The Dog?
    Grease?

    I'd have guessed The American President with Michael Douglas & Annette Bening.

    I'd have suggested Chasing Amy as good viewing though (well, it's sorta romantic).

    I'd second this, I'd not even heard of this until a friend suggested it (and I certainly didn't recognise any of the actors) but I thought it was a very touching film and the 2 leads (Ryan Gosling, Rachael McAdams) had great chemistry together. I'm sure your partner would love it, it's full of emotion and I'm sure you'll need the tissues for her - what more could you want!? :devil:

    whilst the constant gardener and eternal sunshine are good movies, they aren't really the ideal date movie, maybe you'll understand after seeing them

    again, unless your girl is a lesbian, chasing amy isn't really going to be the most appropriate date movie for an anniversary

    your probably best to stick to the notebook, and poke yourself in the eye from time to time to shed a few tears to get the real sympathy vote

    oh, and also checkout just friends after you've seen notebook ;)

    You will not be disappointed, it is not at all far fetched,very believable, and the ending is so well done.A true story of love and tragedy,

    Aaah, you see that's way I said Primary Colours as you mentioned a liking of The West Wing. Most of the main WW cast is in this.

    But then again I suppose it not exactly a mood setter.

    THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT I would guess at - one of my daughters favourite movies.(starring Michael Douglas and Annette Bening).
