If you’re in love and looking for a special way to spend an evening in this Valentine’s Day, you’re in luck! Here are our top picks for romantic Valentine’s Day to watch with someone special. (And if you are more lovelorn than lovestruck this year, don’t worry… We’ll have a list of Valentine’s Day movies for those of you who are feeling less-than-lovey-dovey this year later in our series.)

So what do you think of our selections below? What would you add to the list? Leave us a comment and let us know.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This beloved film is a classic for a reason—a unique love story about what it means to “belong” to someone else, a no-name cat, kissing in the rain and Audrey Hepburn at her most lovable all make this a must-see film. If you’ve never watched it, settle in for some stunning cinema with Breakfast at Tiffany’s this Valentine’s Day.

The Notebook

While most love stories leave their characters young, in love and ready to live out their happily ever after together, The Notebook takes you a step further in the main characters’ journeys. That, combined with gorgeous vintage costumes and a vibrant Rachel McAdams make The Notebook your ideal Valentine’s Day entertainment.

Chocolat

Johnny Depp. Juliette Binoche. A small French village. Chocolate. What’s not to love here?

Enchanted

I grew up adoring Disney princess in all of their sparkly pink glory, but even if I hadn’t the playful fun of Enchanted would still get me every time. Amy Adams’ cheerful style just makes me want to embrace my inner child and/or burst into song in the middle of the street from time to time.

Pride and Prejudice

I love the most recent adaptation of this classic Jane Austen novel starring Keira Knightly. It takes the timeless story and presents it in a perfectly gorgeous way. Plus, the film will probably leave the man in your life aspiring to be your very own Mr. Darcy…

An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle

Trapped inside by snow and the chilly winter weather? Watch Cary Grant charm Deborah Kerr in An Affair to Remember and you’ll be sure to tear up when Meg Ryan references the film in Sleepless in Seattle. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day double-feature.

The Princess Bride

Admittedly, the men in your life might not be too crazy about the movies on this list, but they are sure to love The Princess Bride. With it’s zany humor and swashbuckling adventure, this is one movie that will leave you laughing together.

    I love every one of these movies, especially Pride & Prejudice and An Affair to Remember. Oh, I actually haven’t seen The Notebook, but it’s in my Netflix queue. Maybe I’ll sit the hubs down to watch that with me this V-day? I would add Sleepless in Seattle with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, You’ve Got Mail, with the same two actors, and my all-time favorite: It Happened One Night with Clark Gable & Claudette Colbert. I could {and have} watched that movie a million times and never get tired of it. Great list! Thanks!

    Haha, I realized I said “add Sleepless in Seattle” but it’s already on there. :) I put The Notebook at the top of our queue. Thanks!

  5. I’ve said countless of times that I love Audrey Hepburn so much so because of her effortless style and grace. She is also one of the most capable actresses I admire. -Hannah Lee
