Top Valentine Movies

Valentines Day is this Friday. (Sure hope you remembered!) If you didn't and you can't get reservations at local Lexington restaurants then stay home and create your own romantic evening. Celebrate Valentine's Day with some true romance classics. These movies have it all: great acting, witty dialogue, lots of sparks, and, of course, true love! So snuggle up with a loved one and celebrate the day at home with great movies.  

Put together a date night kit with your favorite movie, two small bottles of champagne, and your favorite snack. (Chocolate covered strawberries-anyone?)


  • Sleepless in Seattle” - In an attempt to find his father a mate, a recently widowed man’s son calls a radio show. The child persuades his father to talk about how much he misses his mother. Following the call, hundreds of women write to the man saying how much they were touched by his story. 

  • “(500) Days of Summer”-A writer for a greeting card company recounts how he fell in love with a co-worker who does not believe in love. 

  • “My Best Friend’s Wedding”-A restaurant critic realizes she’s in love with her best friend after he calls her to say he’s getting married.
  • “Nights in Rodanthe” -A surgeon looking to escape his own emotional baggage checks into a bed-and-breakfast and ultimately finds companionship with an unhappily married woman. 

  • “Titanic”-Two people from different social classes meet and fall in love but are ill fated when the Titanic begins to sink. 
  • “Pretty Woman” -A charismatic prostitute falls in love with a businessman who initially hired her to accompany him to a few social events. Not your typical love story.
  •  “Dirty Dancing” - A story of teen rebellion at its finest, Baby falls in love with her summer dance instructor much to her father’s dismay. Nobody puts Baby in the corner.
  • “A Walk to Remember”-Two people, against all expectations found out they are destined to be together. However, young love is soon put to the test when tragedy strikes and forces Landon & Jamie to find the definition of true love. 
  • “Love Actually”-Set during the holiday season in London, eight loosely related couples are profiled as they try to master jealousy, infidelity, romance and the fear of rejection. 
  • "The Notebook” - A love story for the ages until death does them part. The  modern day quintessential love movie.
  • "Casablanca" - is an undisputed masterpiece and Hollywood's quintessential statement on love and romance.
  • "Twilight" - a romance all about old-fashioned waiting and longing. The modern day (and strange love story)
  • "50 First Dates" is the ultimate tale of devotion. Henry won't let something like short-term memory keep him from the one he loves.
  • "Ghost" shares a unique story of a man whose love for his partner is so strong that not even death could tear them apart.
  • "Moonstruck"- A widowed Brooklyn book-keeper is torn between her fiancé and his brother
  • "An Affair to Remember"- the name says it all. Before there was "Sleepless in Seattle," this movie made the Empire State Building a romantic landmark.

These flicks are all worthy of watching on Valentine's Day, or any other time you feel like a romantic date night with your loved one.
