Let us know in the comments below what your favourite rom-com is!
The ultimate classic. Despite being very stereotypical and, with modern values, problematic, the level of pettiness and drama in this movie is hilarious and will give you a good laugh to start V-Day off the right way!
10 Things I Hate About You
It’s always fun when there’s a fake relationship and a love-hate relationship. While Kat and Patrick are not exactly hating on each other, they aren’t on friendly terms, and watching them fall in love with each other is so cute! Not to mention Kat has a no-nonsense attitude that makes it so fun to watch Patrick finding ways to get to her. Plus Heath Ledger!
The Princess Diaries
While not exactly a romance movie, it has the same feeling with watching other chick flicks as it’s lighthearted and fun. It has a more serious theme which is about finding yourself and taking responsibility, but also about not forgetting your friends and family. Mia finally learns to embrace herself and becomes confident in who she is.
27 Dresses will make you feel sad but also know that it’s for the better. Whenever Jane was hurt by George, Kevin was always there, and so you know exactly who she will end up with. It also portrays the complexity of sisterly relationship perfectly!
Best friend turn lovers, with a high level of angst. Whenever they are getting closer, the universe keeps pulling them apart. You’re so hopeful while watching the movie even though it’s heartbreak 99% of the time. This movie is literally a roller coaster of emotions!
A Walk to Remember
Obviously romance isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, so to play the mood a bit, we suggest A Walk to Remember. The movie isn’t quite as good as the book, but it’s still captures all the feelings and sadness lingering throughout the whole movie. Some people will prefer The Fault in Our Stars, but I will take this movie any day.
To finish it off, how can you not have a musical? You can’t help but sing along and get in the mood with Mamma Mia. It depicts amazing an mother-daughter relationship, amazing girl friendships, so many fun and catchy songs with the beautiful Santorini as its backdrop. What’s not to love about this movie?
