There are so many cute things to do on Valentine’s Day like go to dinner, or skating, or whatever being cute doing something cute. But, if you prefer something low key you’re probably home trying to figure out which movie to watch. Let me make that a little bit easier by recommending my favourite 5 mushy movies.
One of the most iconic love stories, the tale of estranged lovers Rick and Ilsa reunite in Casablanca while fleeing Nazi occupied France. Containing some of the most used catch phrases today, love, guns, planes, and the best trench coats Casablanca is a classic and worth watching.
Must Love Dogs (2005)
This is probably one of the sweetest, most adorable films I have ever seen. It’s relatable, it’s depressing, it’s funny, it’s everything you want. Sarah is a divorced gal trying to make a go of it in the dating world, the only catch is that whoever she finds must love dogs.
Sliding Doors (1998)
This movie is so cool. It revolves around a moment in Helen’s life where she makes a small choice. But this small choice causes her life to split into two separate realities.
Shakespeare in Love (1998)
Most people who grew up in Ontario public schools know this movie because we watched it in like grade 9 or so, but it really is so beautiful. It’s humourous and gutting and perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Hands down one of the cutest movies I’ve ever seen, and for an added bonus it’s animated. There are songs, animals, evil overbearing fake mothers, and the longest, most dreamiest blonde hair.
These are some of my favourite romance movies, all of which are adorable, at times sad, but ultimately so perfect for Valentine’s Day watching.
