With these stats in mind, we've rounded up the top 14 movies to watch with your sweetie this Valentine's day. Check out our picks below!
SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE
Nothing is better than an 90's Nora Ephrom rom-com. Seriously, this movie has it all. Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, and the Empire State Building on Valentines Day.
SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
I pretty much love any period piece set in Britain, but this is one of my all time faves, and a Jane Austen classic! The cast is amazing, including Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman. Fun fact: my family's poodle is named after "Mr. Willoughby". Sorry, not sorry. (spoiler below)
I mean, you kind of have to have this one on the list. It's called Valentine's Day, after all. Also, there's about 235234623 stars in this movies, including the adorable Ashton Kutcher.
WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING
This is still my favorite Sandra Bullock movie to this day. Gahh, they just did rom-coms better in the 90's.
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
Two words: Audrey Hepburn. One of the best classic movies of all times. Also, can I have her entire wardrobe?
So, I'm not really a Nicholas Sparks kind of girl, but if I had to pick one, this would definitely be it! I'm pretty sure it's impossible not to tear up at the end of this one!
WHEN HARRY MET SALLY
I.Love.This.Movie. Seriously, this may be my favorite rom-com ever. The ending gets me every time! (spoiler below)
MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING
Julia Roberts at her finest. Also, I'm a fan of any movie that stars both Rupert Everett AND Dermot Mulroney.
HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU
One of the few ensemble movies that got it right. Seriously, it will evoke so many emotions. I wanted to punch Bradley Cooper and hug Ginnifer Goodwin throughout the entire film.
You didn't think we'd get through this list without a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, did you? It was hard to just pick one, but in the end Oklahoma has something for both the guys and the girls. Also, I could listen to Gordon MacRae sing forever.
YOU'VE GOT MAIL
If you liked Sleepless in Seattle, it's a sure thing that you'll like this one. Also, you'll feel nostalgic when you hear the AOL guy say "You've got mail!" Fun fact: Meg Ryan's bookstore in the movie is called The Little Shop Around the Corner, the title of the original 1940 film this movie is based on.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
There's a reason that this animated film won multiple Golden Globes and Oscars. I mean, what girl didn't want to ballroom dance in a golden dress after seeing this movie?
THE GREAT GATSBY
What happens when they turn your favorite book ever into a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio? Pure.Bliss.
The OG of romantic movies. Humphrey Bogart is *perfection* in this movie. Whether you've seen it or not, you definitely still know some of the most famous lines from the film, including the one below. Sniff sniff.
