Dirty Dancing

No one says you have to watch an Oscar-winning arthouse movie on Valentine’s Day. And Dirty Dancing is definitely not that. But it’s a lot of fun, and for many people, a nostalgic favorite. Maybe you and your partner can practice some of the moves!

As Good As It Gets

Couples that laugh together, stay together. So why not watch one of the greatest, funniest romantic comedies on Valentine’s Day? As Good As It Gets features great writing, memorable characters and one of the best lines ever. Hint: it happens when Helen Hunt’s character demands a compliment from Jack Nicholson’s character.

Before Sunrise

Ever dream of spending a night wandering in Vienna only to fall suddenly and madly in love with a French woman (or man, if you insist)? Watch those dreams come to life in Before Sunrise, a beautifully-shot and memorable romantic film. The chemistry between actors Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy is palpable.

 

If you happen to be single on Valentine’s Day, do not watch these movies. You may want to try something more like this.
