Day Two of the Hop

Today is day one of our countdown of Romantic Movies. Don't quibble too much over our choices, or at least their placing. Jmo and I argued long and hard over the order. I won. I'm the female, I know. I also led him into a closet with the promise of bacon flavored Oreos. He's now locked in there and I'm wondering when or if he'll figure out it's only Beggin' Strips in the bag. Hell, bacon tastes like bacon, right?

Anyhow, starting the countdown with 100 through 71. The odd numbering is so we can wind up with our top ten at the very end. The top ten is the most important, so we'll work our way there.

100. Music and Lyrics
99. Mulan
98. The King and I
97. Jerry McGuire
96. Hope Floats
95. Hitch
94. He's Just Not That Into You
93. Heaven Knows Mr. Allison
92. Hairspray
91. Grosse Point Blank
90. Four Weddings and a Funeral
89. Empire Strikes Back
88. Doc Hollywood
87. Dirty Dancing
86. Elisabeth Town
85. Cinderella
84. Chances Are
83. Bridges of Madison County
82. Beauty and the Beast
81. Aladdin
80. A Star is Born
79. 27 dresses
78. Top Gun
77. To Wong Foo
76. Tin Cup
75. The Ugly Truth
74. The Phantom of the Opera
73. The Mexican
72. The Gods Must be Crazy
71. The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain

I'm willing to bet you'll argue the placement of some, or most of our choices. You're free to do that, but this is our list, so this is how it stands. Tomorrow we'll see the next 30 down the list.

Remember to leave a comment, and if you fall off the hop, or want to start at the beginning, go to and get on board!

27 Dresses

I'd definitely push Phantom of the Opera close to the top. PS I Love You is another one. I never thought of The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain as that romantic, but it is a fun movie.

Can't wait to see what No. 1 is.

Mulan so has to be closer to the top. At 21 years old I still cry like a baby when I watch that movie during some of the parts.

We fought over Mulan LOL. Disney before Hugh? Box office earnings finally settled that question.

Was tough to put this in order, I'll say that. I wanted at least 30 of them in the top ten. Jmo's still icing down his owies.
