Movie Choices for Valentine’s Day
“Leap Year” is a charming story about a woman who follows the man she wants to marry to Ireland to take part in an old tradition.

Starring the ever-lovely Amy Adams, “Leap Year” is both funny and sweet and a perfect choice for a night at home on Valentine’s Day.
Yours, Mine and Ours
This remake of the Henry Fonda/Lucille Ball starring Dennis Quaid and Renee Russo is about more than just romantic love: It’s about love of family. Yours, Mine, and Ours offers plenty of laughs and provokes plenty of thought when two mid-year people rekindle a romance and get married, joining two very large families into one. If you’ve ever been part of a blended family, you can appreciate this one in a special way. This is a fun one for more than just you and your sweetie — it’s a great choice for a family movie night on Valentine’s Day.
The Princess Bride
Enduring love that spans years and distance is the underlying theme of this great classic. With plenty of laughs and memorable lines worth quoting (“I don’t think that means what you think it means…”), The Princess Bride is also a great movie for a family night on Valentine’s Day.
Beauty and the Beast
Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, you can’t deny that Disney’s classic “Beauty and the Beast” is a great love story. This sweet tale about a young woman held captive by a beast who has a heart bigger than he lets on is definitely a “tale as old as time.” If you’re looking for a great love story that is an excellent choice for a family movie night on Valentine’s Day, this is definitely a choice worth making.
Dancing…and Patrick Swayze. What more do you need to know? “Dirty Dancing” is a must for a Valentine’s Day movie night. This coming-of-age flick was a staple in the late 80s and it’s a classic today. The sweet and sexy love story between a girl just embarking on her journey of adulthood and a young man from the wrong side of the tracks. It’s a great choice and a must for any date night, but especially so for Valentine’s Day.
Pick up one or two of these movies to watch for your Valentine’s Day celebration with your sweetie or with the whole family. Any one will warm your heart and make you feel more than just a little mushy.
