Looking For A Good Valentine Movie?

I was just thinking about some of my favorite romantic movies and a couple of oldies came to mind. If you're looking for a fun film for this holiday weekend, I have a couple of suggestions. Moonstruck is pretty damned close to perfection for a romantic film. It is the equivalent of Lord of Scoundrels for my movie list! If you have never watched this 1987 film (starring Cher, Nicholas Cage, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello and lots of other great actors), check it out for Valentine's Day. It is sweet, spunky, sexy and romantic. (Great film moment: When Ronny sees the gorgeous transformation of Loretta just before they go to the opera...he is literally speechless. It is sooooo great!)

Another great one is Cousins with Isabella Rossellini and Ted Danson (from 1989)....there are some great romantic scenes in this film, and lots of actors you'll recognize (Sean Young, Lloyd Bridges, Willian Petersen, and more!). I know, I'm still living in the 1980's. So sad. Big hair. Still love the music. Can't get over it. Oh well.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Both my husband and I love Moonstruck! It's a perfect movie. I have to say though, Room With A View might be my favorite.

Hi Lydia! I love Room With A View, too. I almost added that one onto the post. That is reallllllly romantic!

Ooo everyone keeps telling me to try Room with a View.

I like When Harry Met Sally at Valentine's :)

Hi Juju...I like When Harry Met Sally, too....I really like all of Meg Ryan's romantic comedies, especially You've Got Mail! (I like Tom Hanks better than Billy Crystal as the love interest!).
