I think we all know how much I love this holiday due to the brightly colored objects that grace store shelves. Sure, Valentine’s Day was probably created by the greeting card companies, but you really can’t blame them. Haven’t you heard that the Post Office is dying?
Anyway, here are 5 movies about love and romance that you and your significant other can both enjoy. Get your rom-com fix while making sure he’s not bored to death.
Do you know how much men love this movie? Men really love this movie. They talk about it a lot. They may not quote it as often as they do “Anchorman,” but it is still appreciated by the male population.
If you can’t stand gore, then skip this film. But if you like Bill Murray, Twinkies and Emma Watson, this movie is for you. It’s funny and required viewing in preparation for the zombie apocalypse (it will happen).
3. 50 First Dates
The last movie that Adam Sandler was in that didn’t involve cross dressing and was actually amusing. Your man will love the guy humor and you’ll love how Sandler will do anything for the woman he loves.
4. Jerry Maguire
Confession: I am not a “Jerry Maguire” fan. It’s probably because I can’t stand when Renee Zellweger opens her mouth. But most people seem to love this movie. Men like this movie because it involves football. You’ll enjoy the love story and the adorable little boy (spoiler: he isn’t that cute when he grows up). So enjoy and remind your significant other that he “had (you) at hello.”
5. Princess Bride
If a young Fred Savage enjoyed this story, then y’all will too. Any story that involves a giant, pirates, sword fights, a farm boy and Rodents of Unusual Size (R.O.U.S.) is sure to capture your attention.
