With Valentine’s Day, right around the corner, here are some great movies you can watch.
Valentine’s Day (2010)
This movie features a stream of love stories that interconnect, similar to Love Actually (one of the best romantic Christmas movies). It has a star-filled cast playing characters that represent the different types of love.
Jennifer Garner, Bradley Cooper, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, and Queen Latifah are among the star-studded cast members of the movie. One of the star performances of the movie came from Ashton Kutcher who is incredibly funny and has a certain allure.
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
This movie is not your standard romantic comedy. It is based on Helen Fielding’s humorous book of the same name, which was inspired by Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. As she finds herself in a love triangle with the dashing devil Daniel Cleaver (Hugh Grant) and the misunderstood Mark Darcy (Colin Firth, who played Mr. Darcy in the BBC’s Pride and Prejudice), bumbling Bridget (Renée Zellweger) can’t seem to get anything right. Bridget’s relatability—that she is flawed but lovable—is possibly her most endearing quality.
The Notebook (2004)
The Notebook, a movie for hopeless romantics based on Nicholas Sparks’ book, enthralls audiences with a romantic tale of the 1940s with wealthy girl Allie (Rachel McAdams) and poor boy Noah (Ryan Gosling).
Can they maintain their summer romance when their disparity in social standing threatens to separate them? Expect one of the most romantic rainy-day kisses in movie history and a much more heartfelt parallel relationship between Gena Rowlands and James Garner.
The Notebook is a rare Valentine’s Day movie that can make you cry your eyes out and recite love lines, far from the corny movie it could have been. Gosling and McAdams deliver powerful performances, which cement their status in the highest tier of Hollywood performers.

To All the Boys I have Loved Before (2018)
One of the best things about streaming services is that you can quickly get new and old movies, like the endearing, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. This Netflix original features well-known rom-com elements, a likable protagonist, and endearing male supporting characters. It is based on the Jenny Han teen novel.
The story is about a half-Korean teen and has a contemporary vibe. The idea could not be more entertaining: Lara Jean is embarrassed when her crushes receive her covert love messages in the mail. The film has two sequels.
When Harry Met Sally (1989)
This Nora Ephron movie redefined modern romantic comedy with its witty dialogue and brilliant performances from Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. When it comes to hilarious films, When Harry Met Sally is right up there at the top. The romance of the film aside, who can ever forget Rob Reiner’s mother’s famous “I’ll have what she’s having” comment from the iconic deli scene?
The romance film Casablanca is set against the dramatic backdrop of World War II, like the other Valentine’s Day movies on this list. If you are single this Valentine’s Day, turn on one of the best breakup movies, the original painful love story.
Humphrey Bogart’s character, Rick, an ex-pat bar owner, tells his former love, Ilsa, “It doesn’t take much to recognize that the concerns of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world” (Ingrid Bergman). By the movie’s end, almost two hours long, their problems turn from a molehill into a mountain.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
In this late-’90s teen comedy, the late Heath Ledger initially won our hearts while belting out “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” from the school bleachers. This rom-com adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, which is set in a high school in the Seattle region, has held up surprisingly well over time. Mainly due to the feminist, antisocial Kat (Julia Stiles), who is one of the best female leads in the genre. Bianca, Kat’s younger sister, is not allowed to date until Kat does, so her would-be admirer hires bad boy Patrick (Ledger) to pursue her. This movie is bound to make you laugh and swoon.
Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
A Chinese American professor named Rachel (Constance Wu) discovers that her boyfriend’s family is wealthy when she goes to Singapore for his friend’s wedding. In addition, we are speaking filthy rich over here. Rachel must decide if she genuinely wants to be a part of this expensive, seemingly lovely world, as she strives to blend in with his social circle and win the respect of his mother (Michelle Yeoh). In this romantic comedy based on the Kevin Kwan novel, Awkwafina turns in a hilarious performance as Rachel’s BFF Peik Lin Goh.
The story begins as an English country-house drama that develops into an epic love story set during World War II between affluent Cecilia (Keira Knightley) and Robbie (James McAvoy), the servant’s son. False charges and World War II separate the two once their new love is made public. However, will they eventually reunite? Watch the movie and find out for yourself. Adapted from the iconic Ian McEwan novel, Atonement is a piece of absolute cinematic excellence.

There is always this contemporary classic, a love story between rich girl Rose (Kate Winslet) and penniless artist Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) aboard the doomed ship if you want a side of calamity with your romance. The Best Picture winner, which explores socioeconomic class in the early 20th century, is rich in historical information and is bolstered (pun intended) by performances from DiCaprio and Winslet, who earned an Oscar for her work. The film is immortalized by the epic soundtrack ‘My Heart Will Go On’ sung beautifully by Celine Dion.
As the ship sinks, the second half of the movie moves into action movie territory. Considered one of the greatest tragic romances ever made, Titanic is one of the few films that were nominated for the most Academy Awards in a single ceremony.
