When Harry Met Sally (1989)
When Harry Met Sally explores whether a man and a woman can be platonic friends. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan will charm you in this funny flick. Between Crystal’s quick quips and Ryan’s fake orgasm, this movie is a must-see.
Pretty Woman (1990)
The world fell in love with Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in this fairytale of a film. A high society businessman goes weak-at-the-knees over a Hollywood Boulevard hooker. Does it get any better than this? Maybe only behind closed doors.
Here is a romantic classic with all the elements of a good love story. Casablanca is an intriguing tale starring the dashing Humphrey Bogart and the beautiful Ingrid Bergman. If you have never seen this classic, use this Valentine’s Day as an excuse to indulge yourself! And if you have, just remember that sometimes things are even better the second time around.
The Lady and The Tramp (1955)
Two lovely dogs, one delicious meatball dinner. It’s truly a delight watching these canines enjoy a candlelight dinner. Need I say more about this adorable film?
Titanic is one of the most popular movies of all-time. In fact, rumor has it that the average teenage girl saw this movie 5.2 times. And for good reason; Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet sizzle in this epic love story.
Top Gun (1986)
With Tom Cruise as an attractive, smug pilot and Kelly McGillis as his beautiful instructor, this movie always takes my breath away. The awesome soundtrack is reason enough to watch this movie. Once just is not enough. Go into the Danger Zone one more time.
Romancing the Stone (1984)
Michael Douglas, a treasure seeking adventurer, and Kathleen Turner, a romance novelist from the city, go on a crazy quest together in this love story for the ages. If you haven’t seen it, you will see be pleasantly surprised by the rather handsome Douglas.
The Notebook (2004)
This is definitely a new favorite that is quickly becoming a classic. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling share a chemistry that even they could not ignore. The Notebook is a story that will restore your faith in love and bring your heart to untouched heights.
An Affair to Remember (1957)
In the movie that inspired the great Sleepless in Seattle, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr fall in love and agree to meet months later atop the Empire State Building. Watch this classic to find out if sparks fly at the top of New York City.
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Beauty and the Beast is a truly beautiful love story from Disney. This is a children’s movie that parents will enjoy just as much and appreciate more. End your Valentine’s Day on a high note, watching Belle fall in love with the warmhearted beast. It goes to show, you should never judge a book by its cover.
