Valentine’s Day is just a day away, and there’s one question hot on peoples’ minds: “What movies should I see?” Whether you’re eating a large popcorn by yourself in the back of the theater or cuddled up next to that special someone, here are some movie suggestions for this Feb. 14th.

For those who do not know, the renowned book “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been made into a movie and is coming out on Valentine’s Day. Seeing “Fifty Shades of Grey” could be an steamy way to spark up your Valentine’s Day; however, it is expected to be rated R for its raunchy content. The soundtrack has been released and is so far satisfying. Although the casting could have been better, no one should ever judge a book by its cover (wait to see the movie, instead).

Classic romance movies are always a favorite for those cuddling couples. “The Notebook,” although a basic Valentine’s classic, is a well-known tear jerker. If you’re single and plan on watching a movie alone (or with friends) with a pizza and chocolate, “The Notebook” is a good romantic movie for you to consider. Just keep some tissues on hand.

“Love Actually,” a romantic comedy, is also perfect for the upcoming holiday. It follows different story lines of nine different couples. While “The Notebook” is sure to make you cry, “Love Actually” will make you laugh.

“Dirty Dancing,” is a 1987 classic unexpected summer romance between Frances “Baby” Houston and Johnny Castle. This movie is sure to make you fall in love with the lead characters, as well as dance to the music on the edge of your seat (or laptop, because it is on Netflix).

For girls in need of a chuckle who have been through a recent breakup, “The Other Woman,” featuring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, is the movie to see. It certainly celebrates the powerful woman and would be perfect for your scenario.
