We’re not going to pretend like Valentine’s Day is the greatest day all year round (I mean hello, you don’t even get the day off of work/school!) but we also won’t pretend that it’s not a super special day.
A day dedicated to celebrating romance? Count us in!
So if you don’t have a date with a swoon-worthy hero from an epic historical romance novel or even plans with friends, fret not. MOVIES can be your friends, and we’ve complied a list that we’re quite proud of (in no particular order) for you to watch thi Valentine’s Day. Or any day, really.
Because Valentine’s Day is more than just a day to celebrate romance – it’s a state of mind that can be revisited any time!
Maid in Manhattan (2002)
One of the shimmering gems of the romcoms of the early 2000s, get swept off of your feet with JLo as she falls madly in love Ralph Finnes in a modern day Cinderella story.
Roman Holiday (1953)
Prepare yourself for butterflies in your stomach and breathy sighs as you watch Audrey Hepburn in her film debut, falling for Gregory Peck.
Say Anything (1989)
You haven’t known true love until you’ve seen John Cusack stand outside in that long trench coat, heavy boombox over his head.
50% romance, 50% comedy, 100% entertaining thanks to the brilliant talents of Will Smith and Eva Mendes.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
Classic boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, then has to win over the approval of her entire Greek family when he asks her to marry him. Watch it and weep openly with your feelings!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018)
Modern classic, in our humble opinion. You won’t be able to resist the charms of Peter Kavinski/Noah Centineo in this coming of age heart-stopper.
