The 10 Best Movies to Watch if You're Single on Valentine's Day

It may not be everyone's ideal to be single on Valentine's Day, but if you are, don't sweat it! Just grab a blanket and a pint of cream, and curl up with one of these great movies for a day of holiday binge-watching.

 

1. The Notebook 

There’s a reason this movie pops up everywhere you turn. It’s just that good. If you’re in one of those moods where you just need to cry your eyes out, Nicholas Sparks will never disappoint.

 

2. The 40-Year-Old Virgin 

First of all, this movie is hilarious. But even if you aren’t looking for a cheesy romance movie, this film is just as much about friendship and personal growth as it is about finding “the one." Plus, who doesn’t love Steve Carell?

 

3. I Love You, Man 

This movie gives a huge shout out to all of the best friends out there, because even if you have a perfect romantic relationship, your life still isn’t complete without your friends. So grab your besties and watch this film for the wonderful bromance (and Paul Rudd of course).

 

4. 10 Things I Hate About You 

Everyone has an ex like one of the leading guys in this movie. He could be a total jerk like Joey, a too-sweet kid like Cameron, or a rebel like Patrick. This movie is honestly one of the greatest out there -- let the ex-bashing begin.

 

5. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 

This movie is a total classic. I mean, in terms of rock-solid friendships, it doesn’t get much better than this. Who needs a guy when you have your girls behind you?

 

6. Bridesmaids

It may seem counterintuitive to watch a wedding movie when you’re single on Valentine’s Day, but trust me on this one. This movie won’t leave you looking for love, but it will leave you looking for your best friends.

 

7. Grease 

Grease is one of those movies that you can never really get tired of. This film is just so completely feel-good that it’s hard to find an occasion where you shouldn’t watch it!

 

8. The Other Woman 

If you’re in a wonderfully bitter mood, then I have the movie for you. In this movie, a man’s wife and his two girlfriends (yup) come together to enact their revenge on him. It’s totally worth the watch.

 

9. Forgetting Sarah Marshall 

This movie is hilarious, and how could it not be with Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, and Paul Rudd on the roster? If you want to remember why it’s great to be single, give this film a shot.

 

10. The Last Song 

Since I’m pretty sure it would be a crime to only include one Nicholas Sparks movie on this list, here’s another tear-jerker. This movie is my personal favorite of all of his movies, and that’s saying something. And no, that isn’t only because Liam Hemsworth is in it.

 

So there you have it! Ten killer movies to snuggle up to this Valentine’s Day! Enjoy!
