Top 10 Movies to Watch on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Whether you are spending the day alone, with your significant other, or with some friends, you can’t go wrong with a good movie to accompany your Valentine’s Day candy. Here are the top 10 movies you should stream this year:

  1. Five Feet Apart 

Now streaming on Netflix, this is a great movie if you are in the mood to smile, laugh, and cry within two hours. Main characters Will and Stella have great chemistry that carry the emotionally charged film. There is also a book of the same name that I would highly recommend checking out this month. The story follows the two characters as they meet in a hospital where they are both being treated for cystic fibrosis— an illness that forced them to remain a minimum of six feet apart. 

  1. The Fault in Our Stars

Anothermovie that is sure to make you cry, The Fault in Our Stars is a 2014 film based on the novel by John Green. The story follows teenagers Hazel and Augustus, both battling cancer. This is not a movie for those with sensitive hearts. It is, however, a beautiful story when you are looking to cry with a box of chocolate. Bring tissues! (Streaming on HBOMax)

  1. Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the most obvious choice, but it is still a great choice. Streaming on HBOMax, this is the perfect movie to watch if you are looking for a light story and some laughs. The star-studded cast elevates the viewing experience. 

  1. Blended

StarringAdam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, Blended follows the story of two families “blending” into one. With the help of fate and a vacation package to a South African resort, the families become closer. This movie is now streaming on HBOMax. 

  1. He’s Just Not That Into You

He’s Just Not That Into You is another star-studded film on HBOMax. The movie follows a group of individuals with intersecting love storylines. It has a lot of funny moments and is the perfect movie to watch on Valentine’s Day. 

  1. The Notebook

The Notebook is a classic for a reason. Available to stream on HBOMax, this a a sweet love story that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. 

  1. Love, Rosie

Starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, this movie is beautifully frustrating. Streaming on Paramount+, this film deals with two childhood best friends, Rosie and Alex, who face obstacle after obstacle as they deal struggle with their true feelings for one another. 

  1. Romeo + Juliet

Based on the popular Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet is available to stream on HBOMax. I would highly recommend this movie to anybody who has read the play. This version of the movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, and Paul Rudd, takes a new approach to the classic and adds modern elements that will catch you by surprise. (On a similar note, Gnomeo & Juliet, streaming on Disney+, is another fun adaptation that I would highly recommend. It is sure to make you laugh this Valentine’s Day.)

  1. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a romantic comedy that has been on my watchlist for years now. Available to stream on Paramount+, the movie stars Kate Hudson, Matthew McConaughey, and Kathryn Hahn. The story follows an advice columnist as she writes about how to get a man to leave you within ten days. Turning it into an experiment, she has a goal to find a guy and prove her theory. The man she chooses, however, is determined to make a woman fall in love with him within ten days. 

  1. Grease

If you are in the mood for a musical, Grease is a great option. Streaming on Netflix and Paramount+, this movie is a great, lighthearted film about crossing clique lines and making sacrifices for love.
