"Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed."

Yes, Andie MacDowell. It's still freaking raining. While we're delighted that Four Weddings and a Funeral had a happy ending and we recognize that London is prone to downpours, having a heartfelt conversation as raindrops spill down your nose feels a little...miserable. Nothing like a raging cold to kick off a relationship.

It's not that rain can't be sexy. Dirty Dancing's Baby and Johnny getting it on as the rain pours is hot stuff. But guess what? They were inside, safely snuggled up in a dry, warm bed. As much as we may like to think we're the type of person who can enjoy a passionate clinch during one of this month's April showers, we'll pick cozy and comfortable over snotty and soggy every day.

However, if storm clouds turn you on, you're in luck. These romantic rainy-day scenes are a meteorologist's dream come true. Someone get these lovebirds an umbrella and a towel!

Singin' in the Rain (1952)
At least Don (Gene Kelly) had the sense to bust out an umbrella before laying one on Kathy (Debbie Reynolds). Too bad he didn't borrow her rain slicker before embarking on his legendary dance routine.

The Quiet Man (1952)
John Wayne's character, Sean, is so into kissing Mary Kate (Maureen O'Hara) that he doesn't seem to notice he's inadvertently entered a wet T-shirt contest.

9 1/2 Weeks (1986)
Once you've smeared the contents of your fridge all over each other, having a sexcapade in the rain seems pretty tame. Insert your own "slippery when wet" pun for this scene starring Elizabeth (Kim Basinger) and John (Mickey Rourke).

Cinema Paradiso (1988)
Toto (Marco Leonardi) gets the girl (Agnese Nano) thanks to his refusal to let a downpour deter him from movie night. It's the rainy, Italian version of "Netflix and chill."

A sensitive, intellectual man who carries an umbrella? No wonder Jo (Winona Ryder) said yes to Professor Bhaer (Gabriel Byrne).

Sliding Doors (1998)
How is it possible that so many of these couples live in London and none of them carry umbrellas? We hope Helen (Gwyneth Paltrow) and James (John Hannah) learned their lesson.

A Cinderella Story (2004)
Today's forecast: Heavy rain with a helping of "happily ever after." Sam (Hilary Duff) didn't let the weather dampen her spirits or deter her from kissing Austin (Chad Michael Murray) in this fairy tale spoof.

The Notebook (2004)
This scene between Ryan Gosling's Noah and Rachel McAdams' Allie is so passionate, it made the movie poster. In reality, though, you might want to check your weather app before planning a canoe trip with Baby Goose.

Dear John (2010)
What can we say? Nicholas Sparks loves a good rain shower. Here, Savannah (Amanda Seyfried) and John (Channing Tatum) seek sexy shelter under a tiny piece of wood. Anyone else perplexed as to why Chan doesn't pull up his hood?
