5 Valentine’s Day movies to watch and get sappy
The Notebook is considered to be one of the most romantic movies ever made by Hollywood. Based on the book of the same name, written by the author Nicholas Sparks, it shows how enduring first love is through the years. Eye candy like Ryan Gosling (for the ladies) and the very pretty Rachel McAdams in what are probably their most famous roles are definitely worth watching. Make sure you have lots of hankies and tissues while watching this lovefest. Check out the movie synopsis here.
All you need is Patrick Swayze and dancing and this movie has both. Another one of Hollywood’s greatest romantic movies, perfect to watch with a big bowl of popcorn. The iconic scene at the end of the movie makes you believe that through the beauty and passion of dancing, love is a definite possibility. It helps that you get to drool over Patrick Swayze and his moves too. Read up on the movie here.
Sleepless in Seattle
Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, this cute romantic comedy is the result of a matchmaking little boy who calls into a radio talk-show in an attempt to find his recently widowed father a partner. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan play the leads in this movie which is a must watch. Check out the plot here.
When Harry Met Sally
How do you stay best friends that have the potential to be so much more? Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan spend years as best friends trying to figure this one out. And finally, in a classic rom-com style, which this movie definitely is, one unforgettable scene has the entire audience saying we’ll have “what she’s having”.
One of the biggest hits to come out of Hollywood, we’ve all watched Pretty Woman. The call girl with the heart of gold meets the ruthless business tycoon with a penchant for takeovers.
