I can’t help it. I’m a hopeless romantic who just loves…love! But, after calling restaurant after restaurant to try and book a fancy dinner for my honey and me (and failing) one too many times, I’ve now found the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day: cooking a romantic dinner at home over a bottle of wine — maybe some smooth jazz in the background –and parking it on the couch to watch a movie, share a dessert, and snuggle up next to my love.

Whether you’re curled up with your S.O. or parking it on the couch with Ben and Jerry, consider this list your official plan for the evening. If you’re looking for something to warm your heart, make you laugh out loud, cry your eyes out, or squeal with delight when boy finally gets girl, these 20 great romantic movies will give you all the warm and fuzzies this Valentine’s Day, whether you like it or not. Happy love day!

    This is a pretty homogeneous list. Only one movie features lead actors of color, and they are all hetero couples! How about a little more diversity? Just sayin’ 😉
