Couple watching movies on Valentine's Day

You don't have to spend a bundle on a fancy restaurant or night out on the town on Valentine's Day. Spend a cozy evening at home instead. Head to Netflix or Redbox and watch one of these best romantic movies.

Casablanca

One of the most romantic movies of all time, this classic film is a must-see. How can you go wrong with Bogart and Bergman?

Love Story

With 13 Oscar nominations and 11 victories, Love Story is one of the best love stories on film. Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal sizzle on screen.

An Affair to Remember

This 1957 movie starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr is considered by many to be the most romantic film ever. The movie was actually a remake of the 1939 flick Love Affair. If you like older movies, this one is a must-see.

Dirty Dancing

We all love this classic story of the rich girl falling for the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. And Patrick Swayze is just plain hot in this flick.

Titanic

Sure, parts of this movie are cheesy, but it's one of the top-grossing films of all time for a reason. Rose (Kate Winslet) and Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) overcome class differences and find real love with each other on the Titanic.

Ghost

True love can last forever — even after death. Though Patrick Swayze's character dies early in the movie, his love for his girlfriend (Demi Moore) lives on.

Braveheart

You probably don't think of Braveheart as a romance movie, but it has plenty of it. Bonus: Your man will love this film, too.

The Notebook

Ryan Gosling made women around the country weak in the knees when he romanced Rachel McAdams in this 2004 film based on the popular Nicholas Sparks novel. True love really can last forever.

When Harry Met Sally

After its 1989 release, When Harry Met Sally became an instant classic. It's the tale of two New Yorkers (Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal) who thought love and sex would ruin their friendship.

Pretty Woman

Who thought that a movie about a prostitute could be so romantic? Julia Roberts finds love in the form of her high-society client, Richard Gere, in this popular 1990 film.

A Walk to Remember

Also based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, this 2002 movie features Shane West as Landon and Mandy Moore as his newfound love, Jamie, who he soon finds out is dying of leukemia.

Moulin Rouge

This romantic musical tells the story of Christian (Ewan McGregor), a depressed poet and writer, who falls in love with Satine (Nicole Kidman) — a cabaret star at the Moulin Rouge who is terminally ill.

Say Anything

Written and directed by Cameron Crowe, this 1989 film stars John Cusack as an average student and aspiring kickboxer who falls in love with the valedictorian (Ione Skye) and tries to prove he's good enough to win her heart.

Love Actually

This isn't just one love story, it's many. This movie follows the lives of eight different couples in London and their loosely interwoven stories in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Legends of the Fall

Centered on a family in Montana, this film spans the decade before World War I through the Prohibition Era. The tragically romantic tale features three brothers (one is Brad Pitt) and the woman they love.
