8 Films to Watch on Valentine’s Day

Today I thought I would write a post to celebrate Valentine’s Day this weekend ā¤ ā¤

Unfortunately I won’t be able to spend Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend this year, so I was in two minds about celebrating it on my blog- but after reading Rachel’s great post about Valentine’s Day post ideas, I thought I would add my thoughts to the mix.

Whether you’re single, having a romantic date night, or celebrating with your partner from afar- check out these fantastic Valentine’s Day film night choices, perfect for staying in with this year. They are all light-hearted, fun films that I think we all need during lockdown!

Below, I’ve come up with 8 films to watch on Valentine’s Day

About Time

I love this film, and it’s currently available on Netflix. I watched it recently with my sister and it is so romantic but normal. Set in England, the romance seems normal and relatable- if a little charmed. I think this is the perfect film to snuggle up and watch with some chocolates if you’re missing your loved one.

How to be Single

The two main characters of the film 'How to be Single' walk into a busy bar.

I LOVE this film! Whether you are single or in a relationship, this is the perfect feel-good film. Starring Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson, this is also a hilarious choice for any night-in with friends, and I really recommend checking it out this Valentine’s weekend.

Love, Rosie

The two main characters from the film 'Love Rosie' have a loving moment at the airport.

I really need to re-watch this film, but sadly it’s not on Netflix anymore. Love, Rosie is a very frustrating tale of two friends that don’t realise they are meant to be together. It’s a will they/won’t they kind of romance film- and it’s another English classic rom-com that feels relevant and honest.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

The two main characters of the film 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' stare into one another's eyes.

I’ve added this choice to my list as it is a fun, young adult rom-com and the third film comes out this week I believe! I wasn’t a huge fan of the first film, but I really enjoyed the second one and I thought both films were fun, easy watching- perfect for a lockdown night in.

10 Things I Hate About You

I think this is my favourite film! 10 Things I Hate About You is perfect because it’s a great, funny film full of fantastic characters and great lines. But it’s also a romantic films meaning it’s a brilliant watch for this weekend.

Mean Girls

Let’s be honest, I’ve added this one because it recently came on to Netflix- and I love it! Until last week, I hadn’t watched this film since I first watched it as a teenager, and I loved re-living it this week. It’s not really a Valentine’s Day film, but it’s a great choice if you want something funny and light- and it’s a classic night-in film.

Isn’t it Romantic

The main character of the film 'Isn't It Romantic' watches two other people with a concerned look on her face.

This film is a little play on the typical American rom-com, starring Rebel Wilson (again) as the main character. It’s a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and I love watching light-hearted films, especially at this time of year.

Music and Lyrics

This is another of my favourite films. Starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant, this film is brilliant and it features some brilliant songs inspired by 80s bands such as Wham! I also love the romance element of this film, and it makes for perfect Valentine’s Day viewing.
