Top 5 of the Most Romantic Valentine Day Movies to Watch in 2023!

Valentine’s Day is usually spent at a romantic dinner with candles (or on one of these fun dates), but this year you might want to stay home and watch a romantic movie instead. We’ve listed 45 of the best Valentine’s Day movies below to help you get ready for your big plans.

There’s a perfect movie for everyone, whether you’re spending the holidays with a longtime partner, a new love interest, your best girlfriend, or on your own. Looking for something light, corny, or laugh-out-loud funny? We have a lot of rom-com for that.

On the other hand, if you want a movie that will make you cry your eyes out (no shame, you have to feel your feelings sometimes), there are a lot of dramatic, emotional, and heartbreaking movies on this list.

There are also love stories for people of all ages, from teenage crushes to failed relationships in their 20s and 30s to second chances after a divorce.

Oh, and if you’re not in the mood for love (again, we get it), we’ve also included a few stories about breakups and ones that are just nice to look at (hello, Channing Tatum’s abs).

So invite your Valentine or Galentine over, stock up on snacks (Oprah’s Favorite Things are a good place to start), and turn on Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Max, or Hulu. Do you still want more choices? Here are a lot more romantic movies and the best (swoony) period dramas.

1. Valentine’s Day (2010)

This movie takes place in Los Angeles on February 14 (you guessed it). Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, Jessica Biel, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace, Shirley MacLaine, Bradley Cooper, Taylor Swift, Jamie Foxx, and Anne Hathaway, to name a few, are all part of the ensemble cast.

2. The Half of It (2020)

In Alice Wu’s version of Cyrano de Bergerac, the story takes place in a small town in Massachusetts where a high school student named Ellie (Leah Lewis) writes her classmates’ essays for money.

She agrees to help Paul (Daniel Diemer) with his love letters because she loves the same girl and feels comfortable writing to her under a fake name.

The Half of It goes against typical rom-com tropes by celebrating all kinds of love—romantic, family, and friendship—without putting one type of love above the others.

3. Love & Basketball (2000)

This story about how two people who live next door to each other fall in love over time is perfect for Valentine’s Day. Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps) have a lot in common, including their love of basketball.


However, because they are men and women, their paths in the sport are different. The movie shows how they come and go from each other’s lives and try to figure out if they can get back together.

4. Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Here’s a romantic movie for you if you like to see a lot of heartbreak. It’s the story of two cowboys in Wyoming in the 1960s who fall in love but can’t tell their wives because it’s against the rules. The movie won three Academy Awards, and Ang Lee, who directed it, won one of them.

5. If Beale Street Could Talk (2018)

Based on James Baldwin’s novel of the same name, this movie is about a young man and woman, Fonny (Stephan James) and Tish (KiKi Layne), who fall in love despite problems: Fonny is wrongly arrested for rape, and Tish finds out she is pregnant with Fonny’s child.

In the non-linear story, their families’ reactions and attempts to help are shown. Regina King’s role as Tish’s mother earned her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
