Kristina's Five Valentine's Day
Movie Picks

It’s that time of year again when we shower our loved ones with gifts and cute love messages. But if you’re short on inspiration, or don’t have a date, keep it simple with a movie night. Here are Kristina Lindhe’s pick of five movies to hunker down with this Valentine’s Day.

Something’s Gotta Give

Actors: Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton
Director: Nancy Meyers

Why it’s watch-worthy: East Hampton, Diane Keaton’s charm and Paris is the recipe for an easy-to-watch, refreshing movie. What makes it a good romantic comedy is that it’s a movie about grown-ups in which we get to see that people don’t stop falling in love just because they’re older. Also, the fact that Keaton’s character, Erica, gets not one, but two love interests is amazing.

Don’t miss: The East Hampton house in the movie. The set which was so beautifully and enthusiastically built — 3,000 books were shipped from New York’s Strand Book Store to fill Erica’s library and desk — inspired a family in Canada and one in Idaho to build a home just like it.

The Notebook

Actors: Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
Director: Nick Cassavetes

Why it’s watch-worthy: We won’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it, but the last 15 minutes of the movie is what turns on the waterworks. It’s so sad yet beautiful to see how life challenges our love and what we do for our loved ones in face of that challenge. Of course, we can’t forget about the rain-soaked kiss and the undeniable chemistry between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. They make us believe in their love.

Don’t miss: Ever wondered what Ryan Gosling would look like in brown eyes? Well, the blue-eyed actor, who plays Noah, wears colored contacts in the movie because older Noah is portrayed by James Garner who has brown eyes.

Brokeback Mountain

Actors: Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger
Director: Ang Lee

Why it’s watch-worthy: It’s a powerful movie about passionate, raw and true love between two men in 1960s Wyoming. The societal pressures and self-repression are heartbreaking and Jake Gyllenhaal screaming at Heath Ledger “I wish I could quit you,” is one of the many iconic moments in this movie. The scenery (the craggy peaks and fast flowing rivers) is beyond gorgeous and inspires us to enjoy the outdoors more.

Don’t miss: Did you notice that the movie poster looks a lot like Titanic’s poster? It’s because the marketing team drew its inspiration from the famous romantic film.

Notting Hill

Actors: Julia Roberts Hugh Grant
Director: Roger Michell

Why it’s watch-worthy: America’s sweetheart, Julia Roberts, and Hugh Grant in a movie is genius. And a classic Meet Cute makes it a must for Valentine’s Day. It’s such a sweet movie about a bookshop owner, William, who falls for the famous actress Anna. Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are convincing in their characters, and we find ourselves rooting for them immediately.

Don’t miss: The famous blue door, the entrance to the home of Hugh Grant’s character Will, was so popular among fans that the previous homeowner painted it black to ward off snap-happy tourists. Luckily, the door was painted back to blue once the home was sold.

The Vow

Actors: Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams
Director: Michael Sucsy

Why it’s watch-worthy: Another movie with Rachel McAdams because she is a good actress and, of course, because the movie is very sweet. Just like The Notebook, this movie makes us wonder whether the protagonists will overcome the hurdles life has thrown their way. Will Leo, played by Channing Tatum, win back his wife, Paige, after her amnesia tears their life apart? Watch the tearjerker to find out.

Don’t miss: The memorable fart scene in the car almost didn’t make it because the executive producer didn’t think people would get it. Luckily, a studio audience loved it and the executive producer had to give the scene a go.
