Roman Holiday

If you've already watched Breakfast at Tiffany's ad nauseam, Roman Holiday is the next Audrey Hepburn must-watch. American reporter (Greg Peck) finds a Roman princess (Hepburn) passed out on a bench in Rome after she took sedatives and, well, the rest is what earned the 1953 classic critical acclamation and Hepburn an Oscar.

Moonrise Kingdom

Like Little Manhattan, the romance in Moonrise Kingdom is between naive lovestruck kids — only in the quirky, bizarre Wes Anderson way that makes for a wonderfully unique love story.

Jersey Girl

Jersey Girl is one of those critically mediocre yet deeply satisfying guilty pleasures of a rom-com. Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler fall in love after he meets her at the movie store. Affleck's young daugher in the film, Gertie, is by far the cutest darn part.
