If you happen to have a special lady in your life with very poor movie tastes, she probably likes to watch a lot of bullshit with Katherine Heigl or Jennifer Lopez or god forbid even Julia Horsecackle Roberts in it. Fortunately, there are some decent movies out there revolving around love stories that you both can enjoy this Valentine’s Day… AND BEYOND!!
Valley Girl (1983)
A punk Nicolas Cage, and underrated hotties Elizabeth Daly (TOPLESS) and Michelle Meyrink.
Sixteen Candles (1984)
Sweet story, totally ’80s and a character named Long Duk Dong. The great thing about Molly Ringwald back then is that she was cute but not really hot, so it was believable that she would have to pine over the captain of the football team.
I actually love this movie and have seen it numerous times. Ok, so it’s not so much a chick flick but there’s a fine line between chick flick and romantic comedy. And you get to see Goldie Hawn in a thong back before she melted.
When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
Pretty good flick, depending on how annoying you find Billy Crystal. I don’t care for him one bit, but this is still watchable.
Demi Moore’s haircut actually knocks her hotness down a peg but otherwise this is about ghosts and there are demons, too. It still blows my mind that it’s directed by Jerry Zucker of Airplane! and Top Secret! fame.
Ok, the first 19 hours or so of this is torture to sit through. I’ve never actually seen all of it because it’s boring, has a horrible script and some pretty bad performances by otherwise good actors. However, Kate Winslet’s boobs (where the name TITanic came from), and the sinking part is pretty good.
As Good as It Gets (1997)
This wouldn’t be nearly as watchable as it is without Jack Nicholson. There’s no way anybody else could have performed his role as well. Except Walter Matthau.
Fools Rush In (1997)
A Matthew Perry movie, watchable??? Yeah, this really isn’t too bad. And it’s got Salma Hayek at her apex of hotness.
The Wedding Singer (1998)
The last funny movie Adam Sandler ever did. Full of gnarly ’80s references and Drew Barrymore is a cutie pie. R.I.P., this Adam Sandler.
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
It’s really not that good but it’s not horrible and women seem to think this is the greatest movie ever made. The sequel, though, is a complete nightmare.
Some good laughs in parts, although immensely overhyped. Single-handily started the trend of women shitting in sinks.
