Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)
It might be hard not to spend this whole scene worrying about Cat, who got lost somewhere in a rainy alleyway as the result of a rash decision by Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) to jet off to Brazil in pursuit of a sugar daddy. Even when she does find the sopping wet feline, she does a terrible job of tucking him into her trench coat as she runs to Paul (George Peppard) for the climactic kiss. True romantics, however, should just see this as a really romantic scene with a bonus cute kitty.
Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)
You don't even need to know about the ways in which Hugh Grant's Charles and Andie MacDowell's Carrie keep meeting and not getting together over the course of the movie's titular events. With MacDowell looking flawless, despite being drenched, and Grant doing that adorable British stuttering thing, this scene is a perfectly wrapped romantic package all on its own.
The Notebook (2004)
If anyone says the words "kiss in the rain," Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling's soaked embrace is the first thing that pops into your mind, right? And all other words we're writing in this space are superfluous because you've already stopped reading in order to replay the scene 14 times. "It wasn't over. It still isn't over!"
It looked like the "will they or won't they" of Ross and Rachel would go on forever (which, honestly, a season and a half isn't even that long), when this argument at Central Perk made our dreams come true. The rain makes Ross' hangdog expression outside the door all the more poignant, but thank goodness Rachel has the good sense to pull him inside instead of joining him out there.
There's a lot to be said about how showing just the slightest bit of skin can be sexy as hell. Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) is showing a lot as the rain pelts her flimsy dress (and she's nearly the victim of a brutal assault). But when she pulls down Spidey's mask for that iconic upside-down smooch, it's the small glimpse of Tobey Maguire's neck and chin that sends chills down our spine. Worth all those raindrops that must have been flooding his nose, for sure.
