Movies to Watch For Valentine's Day

The day of love is fast approaching. If you are looking for a couple of romantic movies to watch, I have compiled a list of some of my personal favorites. I have probably watched these movies WAY too much, but they never cease to entertain me.

Feast of Love (2007)

This movie follows multiple characters and shows how all of their different love stories intertwine with one another. People are falling in and out of love throughout the entire movie. It’s packed with a star studded cast, including Greg Kinnear, Morgan Freeman, Selma Blair, and a mustache-less Billy Burke before his Sheriff Swan days. If you are looking for a good cry, I highly recommend this movie.

She’s the Man (2006)

Based off of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Viola (portrayed by Amanda Bynes) pretends to be her twin brother, Sebastian, at his high school so she can play soccer. If you want a good laugh, this is the movie for you. Everyone is falling in love with different people, which causes a humorous amount of love triangles and awkward situations. Also, it has Channing Tatum in it, so that's a huge plus.

A Walk to Remember (2002)

Out of all the Nicholas Sparks’ movie adaptations, A Walk to Remember is my personal favorite. Get a box of tissues, because this one is a tear-jerker. Mandy Moore stars as Jamie, a girl that keeps to herself until she meets Shane West’s character, Landon. The two slowly start to fall into a passionate love, and they try to go through the trials of high school and heartbreak together.

The Proposal (2009)

This movie stars Ryan Reynolds as Andrew and Sandra Bullock as Margaret. To avoid being deported back to Canada, Margaret coerces her assistant, Andrew, into entering a fake engagement. They visit his family in Alaska to try to pass off their fake relationship before they get married. But along the way, they find themselves wondering if they really are pretending to be in love. Also, Betty White is a gift to the audience in this movie.

Keith (2008)

Here we have Jesse McCartney portraying outcast Keith and Elizabeth Harnois portraying tennis star Natalie. They are set up as lab partners, and quickly, Natalie finds herself curious about the enigma that is Keith. As they fall in love, they find themselves reenacting romantic clichés so they can have epic love story moments in the short amount of time they have together. This is another tear-jerking movie, but it also incorporates the right amount of humor. 

Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

I fell in love with this movie when I first saw it. Constance Wu plays Rachel, a woman that is going to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family for the first time. There, she discovers that Nick (portrayed by Henry Golding) is a wealthy heir to a family that lives in the spotlight. Rachel must find a way to navigate this life-style, and stay true to who she is.
