Romantic Valentine's Day Movies for Him and Her
Finding movies great for both partners, specifically romantic ones, might be a tough feat. Luckily, I'm here for all your needs (ha.... hah... yeah right). So here you go, a list of some awesome movies for both men and women.
An oldie but a goody. This film stars Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Rome. Peck's character is in Rome and hoping to interview the Princess, played by Hepburn. Little does he know that the woman sleeping in his bed is in fact, the Princess herself.
Roman Holiday isn't just about love and romance, but includes many types of humor enjoyable by both sexes.
A newer, yet still romantic holiday movie. This movie stars Jack Black, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Kate Winslet. Two women decide they need a vacation and exchange houses around the holidays. They both struggle at first, but find love along the way.
Both females meet interesting male characters which give this film a standing chance for men to keep paying attention.
A classic set during the early days of World War II. Starring Humphrey Bogart, the film follows Bogart and his nightclub where he finds his ex-lover. Blah blah blah, if you haven't seen this, go watch it. It is time and time again voted as the most romantic movie in history. And with the war setting? Guys love it.
Some Like It Hot
Another classic with one of the most recognizable women on screen (Marylin Monroe). The film also stars Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. This film is still rated as the greatest American comedy film of all time by many film institutions. So why do men like it? The comedy! Two men dress up as women to get away from the mob, but they end up falling in love with two women in an all girl band they join.
50 First Dates
A man tries to prove his love every day for 50 days to a woman who forgets who he is. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore make a great couple with humor that follows. It is Adam Sandler at his best.
The Wedding Singer
Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler just make a great couple, or at least they do in this film. A man who sings at weddings is left at the alter, but in the efforts of trying to get her back he falls in love with another woman.
Coming to America
A prince and his friend travel to America in hopes to find love. Of course, the prince mustn't reveal himself so he takes a job as a janitor at a local burger restaurant. As with most 80's Eddie Murphey films, the humor is outstanding. This is also the first film Murphey played multiple characters in.
What Dreams May Come
Even though this is one of the best films on the list, it is by far the saddest film. Luckily, it also has it's highs. Robin Williams stars as a man who loses his children in a car crash and later loses his own life while trying to help a victim of an accident. While he is dead, his wife enters deep depression and he only makes it worse by trying to contact her. This film has its humor, but the story by far outweighs it.
The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
This is one of Jim Carrey's more serious roles, but don't be fooled; this film still includes some classic humor. If you haven't heard of this film, Carrey's character undergoes a procedure to erase his girlfriend from his mind, but along the way he notices how much he still loves her and wants to keep the memories.
After Patrick Swayze's character is murdered, his ghost remains on Earth. His ghost finds a woman (Whoopi Goldberg) who can hear his words, but cannot see him. His hopes are for her to help warn his partner from the dangers she is in.
