The 20 most romantic moments in Christmas movies, ranked


Listen, did you really think it wouldn’t be here? While many “Love Actually” sequences are already on this list, the cue card scene is the most iconic moment in the entire movie. It’s been parodied over and over again, and while it hasn’t aged as well as some of the others, it’s still a classic for a reason.

Throughout the film, Juliet (Keira Knightley) and her husband’s best friend Mark (Andrew Lincoln) had a difficult relationship. Things get even more complicated when Juliette sees Mark filming beautiful close-ups of her during her wedding, causing the bride to realize that Mark was in love with her all the time. As Mark isn’t very good with words, their odd friendship gets even worse.

But then we come to the scene in question, where Mark uses giant cue cards and a boombox to tell Juliet her true feelings, and the audience realizes that Mark is actually quite romantic. Of course, if you think about it too much, this scene looks absolutely scary, but there’s a reason it’s still loved by so many people. With Christmas carols in the background and the snowy landscape, this moment perfectly captures the romantic (and somewhat heartbreaking) spirit of Christmas.
