Roger Ebert
Rom-Com Cred
America's most beloved film critic; happily married for 20 years.

Favorite Romantic Movie
A Walk in the Clouds (1995)

Why It's Wonderful
"The film, set in the vineyards of Northern California after World War II, tells the story of a young man [Keanu Reeves] and woman [Aitana Sánchez-Gijón] who meet at a time of crisis in their lives, agree to pretend to be married, and fall in love just when the pretense is about to fail. To a jaundiced eye, the film might look like melodrama, but perhaps one needs to have a little longing in one's soul to respond—it sang to me."

Best Line
"Newlyweds. What else do they do but make love and war?"
