Awards Radar Community: What is Your Go-To Romantic Film on Valentine’s Day?

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Admittedly, this is not a holiday that I always am particularly on board with. Yes, that does tend to have a lot to do with whether I’m single or not, but I’m only human. Well, this year I’m taken (and hopefully for the foreseeable future), so it hits differently. I’m happy, so sue me. As such, we wanted to have a special Awards Radar Community post for you all to enjoy today. So, the Community Question is related to the holiday. In short, if you’re watching a film for Valentine’s Day, what are you watching? We’re eager to find out!

There are a ton of options that I’d like to present, but I’ll keep it brief. If you’re in a Richard Curtis mood (and I often am), you could watch either About Time or Love Actually. Other tear-jerker options include Blue Valentine, City of Angels, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Notebook. On the lighter side, there’s Knocked Up (which I just revisited a few days ago) and Trainwreck. Kevin Smith fans like myself would potentially get a kick out of watching either Jersey Girl or Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Plus, if you want to head out to the theaters, a really great option would be none other than The Worst Person in the World. Whatever your Valentine’s Day mood, there’s something to consider, without question.

Since it’s a day for couples, I even consulted my girlfriend about what her pick would be. This is what she had to say, and in case you’re wondering, yes, she wrote this up in a haste during a break in the Super Bowl last night:

You definitely need a hot male lead, a little 90s nostalgia, perhaps even a quest if you’re lucky. So this Valentine’s Day I’m all about Uncharted. Ok, not really. I may be watching it tonight (thanks, Joey, very romantic) but my heart lies with 90s rom coms, especially ones starting another Tom—Tom Hanks—like Sleepless in Seattle or You’ve Got Mail.

Folks, I do hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day, treating either yourself or your significant other (or some combination of both). Whether you’re going out to eat, staying in, or watching a film somewhere, hopefully it’s a lovely time. If you’re watching a movie, be it at home or in theaters, do let us know what you watched/are watching. We’re all ears…

What are you planning to watch on Valentine’s Day? Let us know!
