Movies for the Valentine's Day Blues

As you know, we’re big movie fans. So we came up with a list of our movies for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, and Singles’ Awareness Day. I’m not sure what to call this group of movies—Not your average 90’s romances? Painfully relatable? Movies that might make you ugly cry?

Whatever we call them, these are movies that hit our core and made us feel despair, happiness, but mostly films that made us feel human. We hope you love them as much as we do.

If you want to know where to find these movies streaming online, check out IMDb. You’ll find our IMDb list here.

And without further ado, here are fourteen movies we love.
