7 Romantic Movies to Watch on Valentine’s Day
Does a night of snuggling up with your love and watching a romantic movie together sound like the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Here are seven great movies to watch with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day.
1. When Harry Met Sally
This movie consistently tops most lists of Valentine’s Day movies and for good reason. This romantic comedy is about a man and a woman who wonder whether two people of opposite genders can truly be platonic friends. Even if you’ve seen this movie before, a re-watch is always worth your time.
2. Crazy Stupid Love
Sometimes you already have love, but you forget or abandon it. This is another romantic comedy that’s a must-see. A sweet man is heartbroken when he finds that his wife wants to leave him and takes the advice of a ladies-man to woo her back. That ladies-man also goes on to find a love of his own. You’ll laugh and you’ll hug your loved one just a bit tighter.
3. Love Actually
Several stories, both happy and sad, intertwine to form a beautiful picture of the various types of love in this world. This is one of the most popular Valentine’s Day movies of all-time. You can watch it again and again and take away a different lesson every time.
4. Notting Hill
Can two people from vastly different backgrounds fall in love? Yes, of course they can, as we’ve seen from countless movies and books. But can they stay in love in spite of their differences? The love between a famous actress and a regular guy who owns a bookstore will make you smile with its interesting take on fame and romance.
5. 50 First Dates
This movie has all kinds of comedy in it: laugh-out-loud funny, crude funny, heartwarming funny, and slapstick funny. It tells the story of a woman whose memory only lasts a day and a man who falls in love with her and gets her to fall in love with him every single day. After all, isn’t that really what we should be doing with our significant others?
6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Sometimes love can be brutal and so painful that you think you just want to erase it all and forget. This fascinating movie tells about a couple who erases their memories of each other, but despite the mind scrub start remembering details about each other. This thought-provoking movie provides an entertaining combination of science fiction, romance, and mysticism.
You could watch this movie for a romantic story about a woman who falls in love with her fiance’s passionate and moody brother, but the lines in the movie are priceless and the Italian family living in Brooklyn is unforgettable.
