Hi everyone! Happy Valentines day to you lovely lot. What are your plans for the day? Personally I’m not doing a lot, I think we’re just going to have a nice chilled day at home, as there’s not much else we’re allowed to do at the moment! I expect we’ll get a takeaway and watch a film, which brings me onto today’s post.
If you have similar plans to me today, this might help you out. I’m sharing some of my favourite lovey dovey rom com type films! Now I’m not one for really serious films, I just can’t be bothered with them. I love a romantic comedy, I feel like they’re the perfect mix of humour and romance. So without further ado, let’s get into it!
10 things I hate about you
This is a classic film that I feel like absolutely everybody has seen at least once in their lives. It follows the bittersweet romance between the two characters, and definitely has some tear-jerking moments!
13 going on 30
Again, an absolute classic. I watch this on the regular as it’s one of my favourite comfort films. I just love the whole idea of the story and I love the outcome of it. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a girl who wishes she was 30. Her wish comes true and she ends up seeing how her life will turn out if she follows a certain route. She ends up falling for her childhood best friend, and eventually gets back to 13 and creates a different path for her life.
It’s a boy girl thing
This is essentially Freaky Friday, but instead of mother and daughter, a guy and girl get swapped and of course end up falling in love! Even if they are complete opposites of each other. It’s a really good film and I used to love it as a teenager.
Just go with it
As I mentioned in a Netflix favourites post, I absolutely love this film. It’s a little bit far fetched – creating a whole fake family just to keep dating a girl, but nevertheless it’s a great feel-good film! It’s not too serious, and of course they end up together for real in the end.
50 first dates
Another Adam Sandler classic, this film is such a cute one! The woman, played by Drew Barrymore, has memory loss, where she forgets the previous day as soon as she goes to sleep, meaning she lives the same day over and over again. She forgets meeting Adam’s character, so the story focuses on different ways he comes into contact with her every day and in the end, he comes up with a solution of how they can live their lives together.
This is another film I used to watch all the time in my teenage years. It follows 4 couples as they go away to an island where they have to take part in various couple’s activities, and the ins and outs and struggles of each relationship starts to show.
The Bounty Hunter
This is a fairly recent favourite of mine, but I really really love this film. It’s about a bounty hunter who’s bounty is his ex-wife. In the process of capturing her, there are a lot of ups and downs and storylines along the way. But guess what happens in the end? Spoiler alert – of course they fall back in love!
How to be Single
This is one for you singletons out there! I absolutely love this film, it’s such a fun story, focusing on the challenges of being single and getting in and out of relationships. It follows 4 different woman’s lives as they tackle the dating world. It’s pretty funny as well, so an all rounder really! I watch it all the time as it’s a really uplifting film showing you don’t need to be in a relationship in order to be happy.
What are your favourite films to watch around Valentines day, and have you seen any of mine?
Until next time.
