Competition Poem

When Harry met Sally, they were destined to get hitched,
"I love how it takes you an hour to order a sandwich".
With his good looks and charm, Jerry "had me at hello..."
Rose told Jack that she'd "never let go".

Mark's "wasted heart will love you, 'till you look like this..."
Insert a picture of a mummy, and Keira Knightley gives you a kiss!
"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get"
Forrest had a way with words, just like Romeo and Juliet.

Star crossed lovers, caught between two worlds,
Vampires, werewolves and a plain brunette girl.
"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb".
But "Frankly my dear, I couldn't give a damn".
By sending the young boy home, Dan was a "Murderer of Love!"
Returning a glass slipper that fits his princess's foot like a glove.

That cute looking ghost that asked "Can I keep you?"
A Tin Man without a heart wants to feel love for someone too.
Which 12 romantic movies have been flirting with you above?
Name as many as you can to be in with a chance of receiving some love.
