In a romance, the "I Love You" speech is the main event -- the reason the movie exists.  To understand the anatomy of the declaration of love, Overthinking It compiled the climatic moments from iconic  films.

Drawn from 285 clips, they range from basic proclamations, to carefully thought-through compliments, to dramatic confessions. The climax of these movies is the extraordinary power of words to woo, console, or win over.  These speeches are often exclaimed in the rain, on a doorstep and with unabashed desperation.  All run together, it seems like one prolonged and powerful, if not cliched, declaration of eternal love.

    What a wonderful compilation... It must have taken a lot of work, energy and time to put this together. I just wanted to say thank you, it's incredible and perfect!
