32 of the best romcom couples of all time

Over the decades, the silver screen has been the birthplace of some seriously iconic characters, storylines and moving moments – especially when it comes to romance. 

Of course, we love the timeless movies that have provided us with the best on-screen female friendships and introduced us to now-beloved actors who played the ‘girl next door’ perfectly. But there’s something about a forbidden love prevailing, a high school romance or a tear-jerking story of heartache that really gets our hearts fluttering.

The Notebook is based on Nicholas Sparks’s novel of the same name and the love story of Allie and Noah has become world-famous since the release of the 2004 film. Played by Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, The Notebook follows well-off Allie and mill worker Noah whose love starts as a teenage summer romance. Spark even revealed that Allie and Noah were loosely based on his then-wife’s grandparents after they told him the story of how they “met and fell in love”.
