It’s February, which means the next special occasion on everyone’s mind is Valentine’s Day.
So, we’ve picked out a bunch of Valentine’s Day movies that you can watch with your other half.
Those of you who are a bit more cynical can also check out our Valentine’s Day movie picks.
With over twenty recommendations below, you’re your match and you’re bound to find something you both agree on.
Here’s what to watch on Netflix this February 14.
To all the boys I loved before
What if all of your past crushes found out how you feel about them…at the same time? Well, that’s what happens when the love letters Lara Jean wrote for all the boys she’s ever loved mysteriously get sent in the mail.
It’s a staple when it comes to big-screen romances, so we couldn’t not include “The Notebook.” The film follows an old man reading a love story to a woman in a nursing home.
The sad truth
Neither Katherine Heigl nor Gerard Butler are strangers to big-screen romances. So pairing them up for a romantic comedy makes sense. He’s a cynic, she’s in love with love. How will they ever see eye to eye..?
No strings attached
Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman are sweeter than pie as they play friends-turned-f***-buddies-turned-maybe-something-more? (Of course it’s something more)
Pride and Prejudice
Most swear by the BBC series, but the 2005 film adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice” starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfayden is still damn romantic.
Two APs hatch a plan to get their bosses together so they can finally have their own free time. But, inevitably, they begin to have feelings for each other…
Charlotte Brontë’s “Jane Eyre” has been adapted several times at this point. But we can’t help but have a soft spot for the 2011 film version in which Mia Wasikowska plays Jane and Michael Fassbender is Rochester.
The sexual chemistry between Keira Knightley and James McAvoy is undeniable in this war drama. We’re not going to lie to you, you will definitely need tissues at the end.
How to lose a guy in 10 days
Kate Hudson plays a writer for a women’s magazine whose latest assignment is to push back potential dates. Matthew McConaughey bets he can make any woman fall in love with him and starts dating her. It’s sure to create a mess.
ps i love you
Yes, Gerard Butler’s Irish accent is abysmal in “PS I Love You,” but there remains a huge fandom for this big-screen adaptation of Cecelia Ahearn’s novel.
Silver Linings Playbook
Bradley Cooper plays a man with bipolar disorder who is discharged from a psychiatric hospital and returns to live with his parents. He then meets recently widowed Tiffany Maxwell (Lawrence), who is suffering from depression, and is convinced to enter a dance competition as a partner.
With Hugh Grant at his loosest hair and Julia Roberts at her most adorable, “Notting Hill” is cutting-edge romantic comedy territory. Who can ever forget this sentence: “I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
The Time Traveler’s Wife
Following this romance, Rachel McAdams will play yet another time traveler’s wife in “About Time”, opposite Domhnall Gleeson.
Hitch (Will Smith) is a “dating doctor” for hire who advises men unlucky in love how to woo the women of their dreams. Kevin James plays his latest client, who, though hopeless, Hitch might learn a thing or two from.
Isn’t it romantic
Rebel Wilson is the best she’s ever been as a cynical bachelor who lands in her worst nightmare – a PG-13 romantic comedy. It’s fun, sweet, catchy, chockablock with movie references (not just rom-coms), and very entertaining.
Love and other drugs
Next up in our Valentine’s Day movie selection is a tearjerker that could give “The Notebook” a hard time. Anne Hathaway plays a woman with Parkinson’s disease while Jake Gyllenhaal is a pharmaceutical sales rep. Both are in top form.
“Dirty Dancing” was released theatrically in 1987 and despite so many factors working against it, the film was a smash hit and broke VHS sales records. To this day, it remains an all-time classic.
Fifty shades of Grey
Listen, we don’t consider ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ to be particularly romantic (quite the opposite in fact). But some viewers like a little dirt on February 14, so naturally we had to include it.
Jane Austen would simply adore this clever and cheeky adaptation of her beloved novel. Emma Woodhouse’s (Anya Taylor-Joy) acts as a matchmaker land her in a lot of trouble. She’s so caught up in other people’s business that she might miss a chance at love that’s right in front of her.
Sorry, but anything starring John Cusack and Jeremy Piven is Oscar-worthy. Soundtrack; the juxtaposition of NYC against San Fran; the absolute nerdy – we’ll take it all please.
This latest iteration of Daphne du Maurier’s famous novel is spicier than previous iterations. Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas are the headliners.
