We’ve compiled a list of romantic comedies that are likely to please our readers, so they may enjoy them with a special someone this weekend. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill love stories; rather, they’re romantic dramas with a surprise twist in the middle or end. It is our aim that these movies may inspire you to think about what you want in a relationship, too!
Here is a list of things I’d want to tell you before I give you the list.
A love that comes out of nowhere?
There are some things in life that just happen and you don’t know when or how they will happen, but the most important thing to remember about unexpected love is that the sensation matters most. That surge of butterflies coursing through your body because you’re so thrilled, this person came into your life and it feels like a dream.
When you meet someone who you never anticipated to be in a relationship with, but who you are so grateful to have in your life, you know it was meant to be. It’s those moments when you feel something for somebody and don’t know why or how, but there is no one else you’d rather be with than them..
1. Before Sunrise (1995)
On July 26th, 1995, Before Sunrise, a love story set in Vienna, Austria, was released in theaters. The film begins with a voiceover from Jesse recalling his first encounter with Celine and the profound impact it had on his life. While traveling through Europe, they discuss everything from love and sex to politics till morning, when both realize they’ve just met someone who will change their lives for the better forever.
When you accept someone into your world without expecting anything in return, and most importantly, when you meet them halfway instead of taking over or being afraid to display weakness, something great like growth together can happen, the main topic of this story.
2. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)
The 19th of March, 2004, saw the release of the New York City-set film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It stars Jim Carrey in the role of Joel Barish and Kate Winslet in the role of Clementine Kruczynski, both of whom had their memories erased for different reasons.
It’s a story about attempting to erase your past suffering so that you can move forward without it holding you back, but when they meet again years later, events spiral out of control and drive them together into an unexpected love affair, even though they both want each other gone.
This is another one of those movies that you don’t want to watch alone because of its numerous surprising twists. Joel has an internal debate about whether or not he should let Clementine leave when she decides to wipe her memories once more at the conclusion since there is something within herself that forces her back into an unwanted condition time and time again.
The fundamental question is: do we really need our memories at this point? If they weren’t there, would certain things cause us less discomfort? In some cases, these memories may help us better understand ourselves and the experiences we’ve gone through.
Unexpected love has a way of leaving you feeling vulnerable, pure, and bursting with emotions all at the same moment. It’s the sensation of being in the presence of someone who genuinely cares about you and who understands you without having to try.
3. Sideways (2004)
A movie called Sideways was released on October 22, 2004 in the Santa Ynez Valley. Paul Giamatti plays Miles Raymond, a man going through a midlife crisis because he keeps comparing himself to his more prosperous friends and their flawless lifestyles, while Pinot Noir winemaker Jack has to deal with his aging parents seeking to sell his family vineyard. The film stars Paul Giamatti.
Unexpected love between two people who are not alike yet connect over the same thing: searching for something they can’t seem to find anywhere else but in each other. Even if it doesn’t work out in the long term, it says a lot about how someone you never imagined might be precisely what you need at that particular moment.
My favorite part of this story was Miles’ conversation with Jack, who had been married for years, about his views on being single, and how he remarked that he wanted to meet someone fresh every day without looking back.
As a result, their relationship was on shaky ground before it had even begun because there were two types of people present: those who wanted stability and those who craved excitement. After their time in Paris together, neither of them anticipated to see the other again, let alone develop affections for each other.
4. Say Anything (1989)
On August 15th, 1989, Say Anything was released as a film set in the suburbs of Seattle. It stars John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler who meets his French pen buddy Diane Court for the first time outside his house when she comes to visit her sister.
These two hopeless romantics—who don’t even know one another—share a passion for music and poetry, which they utilize to forge a bond that feels as if it was meant to be from the start, even though they haven’t met in person.
The fact that Lloyd never anticipated to meet someone who would make him feel like he was someone special makes this a surprising love tale. This movie will make you believe in love all over again even if it doesn’t work out in the end, because Diane was the person she had been waiting for her entire life and Lloyd made all of his dreams come true in return.
5. The Notebook (2004)
It was released on October 4th, 2004, and is a film set in Seabrook, South Carolina. Following just a few months of getting to know each other, Noah Calhoun and Rachel McAdams develop a passionate romantic relationship.
Even if they didn’t finish up together, we think that real love never dies in this romantic drama film based on the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks, which was sent from heaven above.
For some, the movie resonated with them in ways they can’t articulate, while for others, it was a source of inspiration they could only dream of finding.
6. Atonement (2007)
On September 7th, 2007, Atonement was released in the United Kingdom. On his way home from school, Robbie Turner falls for Cecilia Tallis, the housekeeper’s daughter, while visiting his sick mother.
A forbidden romance is the subject of this tale. Cecilia Tallis should have been with Robbie. It is Cecilia’s socioeconomic status that separates her and Robbie, as she is a lower-class woman. As it turned out, Robbie was also attracted to a woman of a similar age to him, and the two of them went to church together every Sunday (even though she showed more romantic interest in him). We still don’t know why this love tale transpired, but it was surprising nonetheless.
7. Pride & Prejudice (2005)
An adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was released on September 16, 2005, in Hertfordshire, England. It stars Kiera Knightley in the role of Elizabeth Bennet, who falls in love with Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy after he and his closest friend Charles Bingley arrive at a nearby estate because of his sister’s marriage to Mr. Bingley’s sister, Jane Austen’s Mr. Bennet.
However, there are many miscommunications and misunderstandings between the two main characters that lead to their eventual separation, making this a surprising tale because the characters were all deeply in love with one another even though they refused to admit it until they couldn’t deny their feelings any more.. Think about what else you can do so that the love that you have for each other can finally be realized by your loved one by letting them in.
8. The Wedding Date
Most unexpected love story movies are light and enjoyable to watch. The Wedding Date is a good illustration of this. After being dumped by her partner, a single woman takes a flight back to her hometown in this film. During the flight, she is seated next to a charming man. They get to talking, and she learns that her sister requested him to be her phony date to a wedding celebration, and that’s when she finds out. In the absence of a significant other in their life, both of them have agreed to attend the wedding as each other’s dates. On this particular day, they meet, fall in love, and realize that they would be lost without one another.
Everyone in your family will appreciate this surprise love story movie.
9. Before We Go
Before We Go is yet another surprise love story film. Two wandering souls find each other in the middle of the night in the center of New York City in this romantic comedy. An elderly guy approached the woman as she stood in line for public transportation and begged that she call a cab. She agrees because she has nothing else to do and he has no money for transportation. There’s something special about their relationship, something that will last the test of time, and they begin to converse to each other.
