It’s that time of the year where some love birds fly away to their adventures and some just stay home, eat ice-cream and cry about their loneliness. Valentine’s day is not only about being with your one true love. It’s about appreciating your family, best friends, your dog, your cat, etc. If you are spending Valentine’s day by yourself, with a special someone or with a group of friends here is a list of movies for you to binge on!
“10 Things I Hate About You” (1999)
Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) is your typical teen that is intimidating and does not have any boys after her. She has a younger sister, Bianca (Larisa Oleynik) who wants to date, but their father says that Bianca cannot date until her older sister dates. A new “hottie” comes to town, Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger), and he falls in love with Kat but she doesn’t want anything to do with him.
More romantic comedies we recommend: “Valentines Day”, “The Big Sick” and“Trainwreck”
“I don’t need a lover, all I need is my best friends”
Cheetah Girls (2003)
“Amigas! Cheetahs! Friends for life!” If you are not feeling this Valentine’s Day, then you have to watch “Cheetah Girls”.
