Hi I'm Carissa Loethen for About.com. If you're ready to cuddle up and grab a box of tissues -- today is your day! Here are our top 5 romance movie picks:Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet dazzle in the film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Carrey plays Joel Barish, a man heartbroken that his ex-girlfriend Clementine, played by Winslet, underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory forever. Barish then decides to do the same, but as he is undergoing the procedure, he realizes he wants to keep the memories and he really still loves Clementine. It may, however, be too late to correct his mistake.Tom Cruise plays title character Jerry Maguire -- a sports agent who has it all: a beautiful fiance, big names clients and respect. That is, until he wrote a passionate memo that gets him fired. Maguire starts his own agency with one client remaining, Cuba Gooding Jr's Oscar-winning portrayal of Rod Tidwell, and one employee, Dorothy Boyd portrayed by Renee Zellweger. Maguire and Boyd predictably fall in love — probably thanks to Maguire's famous line “You had me at ‘hello.'” So if you want to see Tom Cruise give several long, lovelorn speeches, this flick is for you.“Love Actually” follows the lives of eight different couples all dealing with romance in their own very different ways. The characters fall in and out of love and everything in between. One of the most memorable scenes from the movie is when one character finally reveals to his best friend's wife he is in love with her. He shows up at her doorstep with a boombox and a stack of cue card, showing her one that read: “To me you are perfect,” as every hopeless romantic in the world shed a tear. You'd probably better break out more than one box of Kleenex for this one! “The Notebook” starring Rachel McAdams as Allie and Ryan Gosling as Noah is a true tearjerker. The movie starts with an old man reading a story to an elderly woman in a nursing home. The story involves Noah and Allie, who meet at a carnival and eventually fall in love. Allie's rich parents, however, disapprove of Noah's low-income upbringing, intercepting Noah's letters to her. After years, Allie becomes engaged to a soldier. One day, she sees a picture of Noah in the paper standing in front of a house he restored for her. Allie visits him and realizes it's not over between her and Noah.Ahhhh... the classic! “Titanic” follows the story of Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio). 17-year-old Rose is expected to marry a rich man, but as the story goes, she instead falls in love with a poor artist named Jack while on board R.M.S. Titanic. Rose, whose future is already planned by her uptight family, is fascinated by Jack's impulsive nature. Their short romance ends as the majestic ship strikes the iceberg. As the Titanic sinks, Rose climbs up onto a door and Jack remains in the water and holds her hand. In the end, she tells him, “I'll never let go, Jack.” Throughout the movie, a 101-year-old woman is telling the story. It turns out she is the real Rose.Thanks for watching our Top 5 Romance Movie picks. For more, go to About.com.
