Nora Ephron (“You’ve Got Mail,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “Julie & Julia”) made a list of her top 11 romantic Valentine’s Day movies to the Daily Beast. You can see the inspiration for her witty, sophisticated love stories in the classics she picks, all of which are high on my list, too.
Once you’ve seen all those, check out Matt Zoller Seitz’s “Great Declarations of Love” movie list on Salon. All wonderful.
And one more from me — it’s not a perfect movie by any means but the most deliriously silly bedroom scene I know is in “The Tall Guy,” with Jeff Goldbloom and Emma Thompson — and some singing underpants.
