For instance, Pretty Woman, A Walk to Remember, Dirty Dancing and even the current hit Juno - all films with female protagonists - made the women’s list, but the men went for movies with arguably more masculine role models like Casablanca and An Officer and a Gentleman or with a comedic bent like 50 First Dates and The Princess Bride.

Fandango, http://www.fandango.com, the nation’s leading moviegoer destination, announced the results of an online nationwide survey asking men and women to name their favorite romantic movies and romantic lines of dialogue. Several thousand moviegoers responded during the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, and the differences between the choices of men and women are notable.

“The Fandango survey reflects the different tastes between male and female moviegoers around the country,” says Ted Hong, vice president of marketing for Fandango. “For instance, Pretty Woman, A Walk to Remember, Dirty Dancing and even the current hit Juno - all films with female protagonists - made the women’s list, but the men went for movies with arguably more masculine role models like Casablanca and An Officer and a Gentleman or with a comedic bent like 50 First Dates and The Princess Bride.”
