Valentine's Day wouldn't be a proper celebration of love without a romantic film. Dudes either sit through them just to get some dinner or because they are actually enjoying the hot, steamy romance. And there's nothing wrong with enjoying a good film. It's totally cool to like The Notebook as long as you are liking it with someone special.
I haven't seen this movie but I hear it's pretty bad. I do recommend it because of the title and because of the cast. Also, it might not sting so badly if you watch it around the real Valentine's Day.
I'm a dude, but man, do I love You've Got Mail. It's penned by Nora Ephron and she can really write a story. I remember watching this film in 8th grade and liking it, mostly because of the Internet cool factor. By today's standards, what Tom Hanks is doing in this film (which I won't spoil) would be considered creepy and controversial rather than romantic.
If you just so happen to know a girl then you might have heard of this one. That is all.
How many iconic moments can one movie have? "Here's looking at you kid" and all the romantic montages you can eat are here. There's a depressing love song. There's danger (war). Booze (booze)! Cuddle up next to your significant other and marvel at the gorgeous black and white presentation and the soft, close up shots of two people deeply in love.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
You'll probably never forget about Sarah Marshall after watching Jason Segel and Kristen Bell struggle in a love triangle with Russel Brand. Once Mila Kunis is added to the equation, the claws come out. So does someone's junk.
If you've ever struggled with a relationship you might like this one. Crazy, Stupid, Love. won't depress you, however, it might actually make you feel a whole lot better about yourself. I've the pleasure of watching this with a special someone which proves that happy couples can enjoy it too. We also like it because it stars, Michael Scott!
