I thought I would do a quick post on Valentine's Day movies for both of you! I have never understood the popular "romantic" movie choices for Valentine's Day. They always include the same sad, boring group of movies. I am not sure about you, but watching The Notebook does not put me in a romantical mood! It makes me cry, grab my blankie and a carton of ice cream (organic of course) and curl up on the sofa sobbing with snot and tears running down my face. This is not a super fun way to spend Valentine's Day or a much needed date night with your husband!
So here is a group of movies that won't make you depressed, eat excessively and sob. Enjoy! :D
Knight and Day with Tom Cruise & Cameron Diaz, is funny, full of action with a bit a romance thrown in for good measure!
Having a bit of trouble in your marriage? :) Try Couples Retreat. This movie makes me laugh-out-loud. Great cast, laughs and fun, albiet a little inappropriate humor at times, but this one is too fun to miss!
Letters to Juliet for the whole family. A fabulous and fun movie with nothing inappropriate (how refreshing) for your tween / teen girls!! The scenery is amazing!
Please understand, I am not normally a "musical" movie watcher. However, if you are by yourself for Valentine's Day and need a pick me up - this is it! And if you don't laugh, jump on the sofa and sing along, you may be doing it wrong! ;) So much fun, laughs and humor and hey, Meryl is not to be missed in this one!
Happy, Happy FUN Valentine's Day Lovelies!!
