Co-starring actor and singer Miley CyruswithLiam Hemsworth(The Hunger Games), The Last Song is a gorgeously shot melodic romance about family, heartbreak, and finding yourself.

Highlighted by Cyrus’ musical talent, as well as her undeniable chemistry with Hemsworth, whom she was involved with in real life at the time, The Last Song is an enjoyable tear-jerking heartwarmer. – Yael Tygiel

Run Time: 2 hrs 8 min | Director: Nancy Meyers

Cast: Lindsay Lohan, Dennis Quaid, Natasha Richardson, Elaine Hendrix

Nancy Meyers, filmmaking queen of the romance genre, directed the remake of The Parent Trap. Starring a young Lindsay Lohan as a couple of twins separated at birth intent on reuniting their parents, The Parent Trap defined a generation. The Parent Trap is a quintessential late 90s film that made Lohan a household name. Co-starring with the young actress is Dennis Quaid and the late Natasha Richardson as the parents and a deliciously evil performance from Elaine Hendrix (Dynasty) as Meredith. Even as a modern adaptation of a classic story, The Parent Trap is a beautifully touching tale of family, love, and fighting to stay together. – Yael Tygiel

Enchanted (2007)

Barbie Movie-Enchanted-Amy Adams

Run Time: 1 hr 47 min | Director: Kevin Lima

Cast: Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey, James Marsden, Timothy Spall, Idina Menzel, Susan Sarandon

Enchanted is, well, positively enchanting. With a resume that includes masterpieces like Arrival and Sharp Objects, Enchanted is still one of Amy Adams’ best and most memorable projects. The film centers around Giselle, a beautiful princess who is banished from her fairytale land and thrown into the streets of New York City. There, she meets a cynical divorce attorney named Robert (Patrick Dempsey). They couldn’t be more different, but you know what they say: opposites attract. The two have undeniable chemistry and soon find themselves asking if it could be true love. Enchanted both pokes fun at and pays tribute to the classic Disney romances we all know and love, giving us smart writing, a sweet love story, and a truly epic soundtrack. – Taylor Gates

Run Time: 2 hr 6 min | Director: Sam Raimi

Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Rachel McAdams

Could it have worked out between them if things had been different? This is a question I’m sure many of us have asked ourselves and one that Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) gets the rare opportunity to explore with his longtime love Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The film centers around Doctor Strange protecting America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a teen who can travel the multiverse, from Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), who wants to steal said powers to get back and protect her twin sons. Along the way, he’ll encounter Christine and need her help. Though it may not be a traditional love story, it certainly is a compelling one. – Taylor Gates

Cast: Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter

In pursuit of her dream job at a fashion magazine, Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) nabs a writing position at a finance magazine. The only problem is that she’s an extreme shopaholic with a mountain of debt and creditors calling her every day. At least her boss is an extremely handsome British man (Hugh Dancy). When she starts to fall for him, she tries everything she can to keep her shopping addiction hidden. While Confessions of a Shopaholic is a fun rom-com full of great fashion, the movie also speaks to consumerism, materialism, and the destructive nature addiction has on the people around you. - Meredith Loftus

High School Musical (2006)

Troy and Gabriella in High School Musical 2

Run Time: 1 hr 38 min | Director: Kenny Ortega

Cast: Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel

High School Musical is one of the crown jewels of the mid-00s DCOM dynasty – and with good reason. The songs are certified bops, the choreography is magnetic, and the actors became overnight stars from it. Centering this musical is a love story described as a modern-day Romeo & Juliet. When high school basketball star Troy (Zac Efron) and the nerdy new student Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) audition for their school musical, the entire high school status quo turns on its head. Though the message of having multiple interests and breaking free of cliques is a little on the nose, the love story between Troy and Gabriella has audiences soarin’, flyin’. - Meredith Loftus

Lizzie and Gordo have seen each other through the highs and lows of junior high, but the way they finally get together is the stuff dreams are made of! - Meredith Loftus

Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella (1997)

Run Time: 1 hr 28 min | Director: Robert Iscove

Cast: Whitney Houston, Brandy, Paolo Montalban, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Bernadette Peters

The beloved 1997 TV musical movie Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella is having a big cultural moment, but it's not just nostalgia that makes this gem worth revisiting. Starring Brandy as the iconic princess - the first Black performer to play the role on screen, Cinderella surrounds the 90s pop queen with an ensemble of veteran screen and stage performers, including Whoopi Goldberg and Victor Garber as the King and Queen, Bernadette Peters as Cinderella's cruel stepmother, and of course, a glowing and glittering Whitney Houston as her fairy godmother. The result is a bonafide musical production, completely committed to the pageantry, spectacle, and showmanship, with some damn good singers belting out Rodgers and Hammerstein's gorgeous melodies. Cinderella's charms endure, not just for the nostalgic flashback factor, not just because it was a revolutionary moment in color-blind casting, but because it's a total treat to watch. — Haleigh Foutch

Run Time: 1 hr 37 min | Director: Gil Junger

Cast: Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Yes, really! The 1999 film 10 Things I Hate About You was released by Disney’s more adult-centric arm Touchstone Pictures, and Disney has seen fit to stick this delightful and sneakily sharp teen romance on Disney+ for your viewing pleasure. Loosely based on William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, the film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a new student named Cameron who is smitten with a girl named Bianca (Larisa Oleynik), but who needs to find a way to get around her father’s strict rules for dating—which state that Bianca can start dating once her older, more “alternative” sister Kat (Julia Stiles) does. Cameron’s fix? Hire the school bad boy Patrick (Heath Ledger) to go out with Kat. Things take a turn when Patrick turns out to be a mighty fine gentleman, Bianca turns out to kind of suck, and Patrick and Kat genuinely hit it off. The movie’s sweet, funny, and boasts a killer 90s soundtrack, so do yourself a favor and throw this one on for nostalgia’s sake. – Adam Chitwood

Run Time: 1 hr 30 min | Director: Ron Clements and John Musker

Cast: Robin Williams, Scott Weinger, Linda Larkin

The iconic 1992 animated film Aladdin still works incredibly well today. The story chronicles a lowly street rat who falls for a princess then gets a genie to help him pretend to be a well-to-do gentlemen of note, in order to make her fall in love with him. It’s incredibly charming, aided by gorgeous animation, excellent songs by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman, and Tim Rice, and of course an unforgettable Robin Williams performance. It’s a classic for a reason. — Adam Chitwood

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

Run Time: 1 hr 58 min | Director: Peyton Reed

Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas

Ant-Man and the Waspis the closest thing to a romance movie the MCU has made so far, with all due respect to Tony and Pepper. The MCU movie tasked with following up Avengers: Endgame, the Ant-Man sequel provided a much-needed jolt of levity and love in the Thanos-devastated cinematic universe, picking up with Paul Rudd's Scott Lang and Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne as they settle into their roles as co-heroes and more than flirty friends. The film goes all-in on the lovefest by staging a mission to rescue Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfieffer), Hope's long-lost mother, from the Quantum Realm, setting up some particularly emotional stakes for Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Ant-Man and the Wasp is sweet, colorful, and breezy; a warm hangout movie with a flourish of romance that also happens to have one of the best stingers in MCU history. — Haleigh Foutch

Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Beauty and the Beast dancing in Beauty and the Beast 1991 Disney animated movie

Run Time: 1 hr 24 min | Director: Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise

Cast: Paige O'Hara, Robby Benson, Richard White

A tale as old as time, indeed, but time hasn't made undisputed classic Beauty and the Beast any less gorgeous. The first animated film to be nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award—and with good reason—Beauty and the Beast stars Paige O'Hara as Belle, an intelligent young woman imprisoned by a prince cursed with the body of a monster (Robby Benson). The synopsis alone certainly sounds like something would've aged poorly, but there's just something to Beauty and the Beast that makes it one of Disney's most enduring stories. This is due in no small part to some of the best work ever produced by legendary duo lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken. The magic is still there. — Vinnie Mancuso

George of the Jungle (1997)

Run Time: 1 hr 32 min | Director: Sam Weisman

Cast: Brendan Frasier, Leslie Mann, Thomas Hayden Church, Richard Roundtree

Pure screwball goofiness from start to finish, George of the Jungle is a throwback romantic adventure that works almost entirely thanks to the singular and relentless charms of Brendan Fraser. At the peak of his innocent fish-out-of-water schtick, Fraser lights up the screen as the cartoonish character, conjuring up some breezy chemistry with Leslie Mann's Ursula Stanhope. Cute as a button, relentlessly pleasant, and refreshingly willing to have a laugh at itself, the 1997 adaptation didn't fare well with critics when it landed, but it's a whole lot more fun than you're probably remembering. — Haleigh Foutch

The Incredibles (2004)

The Incredibles Family Reunited

Run Time: 1 hr 45 min | Director: Brad Bird

Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Spencer Fox

Bob and Helen Parr, aka Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, are marriage goals. They're mom and dad goals. They're just goals. The super-powered parents fight off crime while keeping their family happy and healthy, and making it look good thanks to the stunning animation from the folks at Pixar in one of their most beloved films. Brad Bird's original animated superhero story is action-packed and full of genre thrills, but it's the Parr family, and specifically, Bob and Helen's marriage, that give the film such enduring heart. — Haleigh Foutch

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004)

Run Time: 1 hr 55 min | Director: Gary Marshall

Cast: Anne Hathaway, Chris Pine, Julie Andrews, Heather Matarazzo

The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagementmay not be the crown jewel on anyone's resume, but my goodness, what star power this charming little Disney romance is packing. Directed by Gary Marshall from a screenplay by future TV power-player Shonda Rhimes, the sequel sees the return of Anne Hathaway's Mia, as she comes to terms with being the princess of Genovia. Turns out the crown comes with an antiquated patriarchal rule -- Mia can't become queen unless she's married in 30 days. That's when she meets a cocky but charming suitor with his eye on the throne (Chris Pine in his breakout role), and a will-they/won't they semi-slapstick courtship ensues. It's goofy and lacks the wholesome charm of its predecessor, but The Princess Diaries 2 still goes a long way on the charm of Hathaway and Julie Andrews, with an added flourish of old-school Disney Princess romance. — Haleigh Foutch

Wall-E (2008)

WALL-E and Eve in space

Run Time: 1 hr 38 min | Director: Andrew Stanton

Cast: Ben Burtt, Elissa Knight, Jeff Garlin, Fred Willard

One of the best Pixar movies ever made, WALL-Eis a masterpiece of visual filmmaking. The largely silent first act works like a charm thanks to director Andrew Stanton’s attention to detail and intense study of cinematic language, and I will staunchly defend the film’s final two acts as Good, Actually. At heart, WALL-E is a love story. The romance between robot trash compactor WALL-E—spending his days on an abandoned Earth cleaning up garbage—and EVE, an unmanned probe sent from one of many human colonies floating out in space to see if Earth is still uninhabitable. Their journey continuously tries to keep them apart, but the dogged perseverance of WALL-E and his big, warm heart bring them together again and again. It’s incredibly sweet, often hilarious, and genuinely one of the best onscreen romances in movie history. – Adam Chitwood

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Jack and Sally in Nightmare Before Christmas

Run Time: 1 hr 16 min | Director: Henry Selick

Cast: Danny Elfman, Chris Sarandon, Catherine O’Hara

It’s not fall/winter without Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, which is technically a Disney movie (it was originally released through Disney’s Touchstone Pictures banner). The perfect film to transition from that Halloween spirit into the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, director Henry Selick’s macabre and lovely 1993 stop-motion animated film still stands as a classic today. Spooky but not scary, moody but not gloomy. The tone is pitch-perfect, and the songs are downright addicting, as Nightmare Before Christmas tells the story of an outsider looking for a place to belong, but going about it in all the wrong ways. And while Jack Skellington may be the star of the movie, Sally is its beating heart. – Adam Chitwood

The Princess and the Frog (2009)

Image via Disney

Run Time: 1 hr 37 min | Director: Ron Clements, John Musker

Cast: Anika Noni Rose, Keith David, Oprah Winfrey

10 years ago this December, as of this writing, Disney introduced fans all over the world to Tiana, the first African-American Disney princess, in The Princess and the Frog. Set in New Orleans during the early 20th century, the story centered on Tiana, a working-class woman who dreamed of one day opening her own restaurant. That dream was was far more important to her than the romantic notions of childhood stories like “The Frog Prince”, but as Disney movies go, Tiana soon finds herself smack in the middle of a froggy fantasy that’s complicated by a voodoo curse. And while all’s well that ends well, The Princess and the Frog takes some fun liberties with the original source material.

This movie is also one of the few traditionally animated tales that Disney makes in the modern era. That fact didn’t escape critics and general audiences alike, both of whom loved the old-school Disney feel. The Princess and the Frog is probably the last big-budget production that the acclaimed studio will tackle with traditional animation, so it’s worth a watch for that reason alone. – Dave Trumbore
