Wait, I have to guess the movie? Ok... um... Gone with the Wind, and... um... Gone with the Wind :)

Ah, Katie and Hubbell in The Way We Were! My favorite doomed lovers. Sigh.

Let's see... I saw Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, My Fair Lady, Jerry McGuire, Castaway, The Lake House, When Harry Met Sally... and I think that's all I've got.

Fun list, nice romantic movies, but my all-time favorites are those British ones with all the repressed affections, like Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Swoon.

My favorite movie kiss is from Lady and the Tramp! The one in Gone with the Wind is pretty good, too!

I'd have to go with the Lake House, and the most recent Pride and Prejudice.
