Ahhhhh Valentine’s Day, a day some absolutely love and some absolutely hate. I’ve always been a Valentine’s Day lover, I can’t lie. I love the thrill of seeing people in love or feeling extra love from my friends (yes, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about romance people!!!! It’s about all kinds of love.) 

I love rom-coms year round but nothing hits harder than a rom-com around Valentine’s Day. My perfect Valentine’s Day would consist of a LARGE pepperoni pizza with a glass of wine in hand, a face mask on and most importantly, my favorite rom-com playing in the background. While I’m a huge rom-com girly, there are a few that are just so top tier and you can’t change my mind. So settle in, grab your remote and start watching some trailers. 

“The Proposal” (2009) 

 This amazingly hilarious movie stars Sandra Bullock as a Canadian executive who coerces her assistant, played by Ryan Reynolds, into a fake marriage to avoid deportation. They fly to Ryan Reynolds’ hometown and Canada and I swear I laugh the entire time. 

“Crazy, Stupid, Love” (2011)

This movie follows the intertwined love lives of several characters but in some way, they all connect. I love those kinds of movies. Steve Carell who plays a recently divorced man needs some man mojo back and he meets Ryan Gosling, who is a young (hot) smooth-talking bachelor, played by Ryan Gosling. The end has the BIGGEST twist! 

“10 Things I Hate About You” (1999) 

This modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” stars Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles as high schoolers. Julia Stiles is hard-core and stubborn but Heath Ledger changes everything for her. I absolutely love this movie. It’s funny, heartwarming and romantic all in one. 

“How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” (2003) 

This movie stars Kate Hudson as a journalist who has the opportunity to write an article about how to drive a man away in 10 days. Her victim is played by Matthew McConaughey. But what neither of them knows is that they are both betting on each other. Matthew has a bet to make a woman fall in love with him in the same timeframe. Kate Hudson pulls the most hilarious things to get him to break up with her. This movie is funny AF but also a true romantic comedy that I am truly obsessed with. 

“13 Going on 30” (2004) 

This movie stars Jennifer Garner as a 13-year-old girl who magically wakes up one day as a 30-year-old woman. She begins to navigate NYC with a 13-year-old mind in a 30-year-old body. Her main goal is to reconnect with her childhood best friend, played by Mark Ruffalo. I love this movie because it isn’t like most romantic movies. It brings childhood energy alongside romantic butterflies.

Whether you love it or hate it, any Valentine’s Day can be made so much better by watching these films!
