my top 20 valentines day films

Happy Valentine’s day all! It may be a way for businesses to pump extra money out of us  but it can still be super romantic, even if that romance isn’t really real because your not really Rachel McAdams kissing Ryan Gosling in the rain! But that is besides the point, romance is romance and here are my top 20, romance-daydream-inducing, valentines day films.

  1. Think like a man (2012)  –  Based on the Steve Harvey’s book ‘Act like a lady, Think like a man’ (2009) the film has got everything you’d expect to see from a good rom-com.  think like a man gif(GIF via Think Like a Man)

  3. He’s just not that into you (2009)  –  Romance can be tricky from marriage to dating but sometimes we have to face it, it’s likely he’s just not that into you! he's just not that into you gif(GIF via He’s just not that into you)

  19. Romeo + Juliet (1996)  –  Baz Luhrmann has adapted Shakespeare’s classic tragically romantic story and put a modern twist on it. It’s romantic, it’s beautiful, it’s tragic and its Leonardo DiCaprio speaking Shakespearian English! romeo and juliet gif(GIF via Romeo + Juliet)
  20. Cocktails (1988)  –  Tom Cruise is a bartender named Brian, mentored by his veteran boss, Doug (Bryan Brown). Together, their tricks and charisma command large crowds and tip payments . Brian moves to Jamaica to raise enough money to open his own bar, where he falls in love with artist Jordan (Elisabeth Shue).
