Hubba hubba. Light a candle, fire up Menulog and start your streaming engines, things are about to get steamy this Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day movies

It's that time of year when some of us snuggle up and spend some quality time with a significant other and some of us snuggle up with a family-sized margarita and a bottle of wine. Both options are just as romantic as the other. Whatever your plans, there's no better time to Netflix and chill.

Contrary to what we're led to believe, shared interests are not essential in a successful relationship. Whether it's opposites attracting or that you're just not going to watch The Notebook again, most people don't hook up and turn into a Nicholas Sparks fan overnight. This leads to a war for remote control command, monopolising the best television in the house before your significant other does.

However, on Valentine's Day, a peace treaty is signed and an amicable decision has to be made.

We've rounded up the most universally loved romance films available that anyone can enjoy.

Long Shot

1. Long Shot


  • Year: 2019
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen

Theron and Rogen make an odd couple, but that’s exactly what makes this movie stand out from the crowd. Long Shot revolves around Charlotte, the US secretary of state, who decides to hire a journalist she used to babysit as a speechwriter when she runs for the presidency. It’s light, it’s funny and it’s smarter than your average rom-com. Perfect for a Valentine’s night in.

    Titanic

    6. Titanic


    • Year: 1997
    • Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates

    I'm told it's some kind of crime against James Cameron to leave Titanic out of a list of romance movies, so here it is. Titanic is the luxury liner of the cinematic world, with something for everybody on board. The third-highest grossing movie of all time created the genre fusion nobody knew they wanted: tragic disaster meets hot, steamy car sex.

    Leo and Kate starred as the young star-crossed lovers and really gave it their all, laying a solid foundation for both of their careers.

    Titanic has gone down in history as one of the greatest love stories ever told and a movie that's only second to the totally canon 2010 sequel Titanic 2. Turns out lightning does strike twice.

    Moonlight

    7. Moonlight


    • Year: 2016
    • Cast: Trevante Rhodes, AndrĂ© Holland, Janelle MonĂ¡e, Ashton Sanders, Mahershala Ali

    Admittedly, 2016's stellar Moonlight isn't a straight-up romance flick. It's a coming-of-age story about a young boy named Chiron living in Miami told in three parts: as a young boy, a high-school teenager and an adult. Over three chapters, Chiron grapples with his identity and sexuality while also dealing with adverse living circumstances and bullies. At times, Moonlight is absolutely heart-wrenching but it's also one of the sweetest films ever made. Don't take my word for it, Moonlight won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture in the Drama category and the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2017.

    Four Weddings and a Funeral

    8. Four Weddings and a Funeral


    • Year: 1994
    • Cast: Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell, Kristin Scott Thomas, James Fleet, Simon Callow

    Essentially the movie that kicked off Richard Curtis's career, Four Weddings and a Funeral follows Charles (Hugh Grant), a loveable but bumbling Englishman living in London (classic Grant). Across four weddings and one funeral, Charles develops a long and tempestuous relationship with an American friend of a friend. Thanks to a stellar cast, it's a fun, romantic and sometimes heartbreaking romp that everyone can enjoy.

    To All The Boys I've Loved Before

    The Big Sick

    10. The Big Sick


    • Year: 2017
    • Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano

    Based on the story of real-life lovebirds Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, The Big Sick tells the incredibly sweet and heartbreaking story of when the couple first met. After cultural differences push the couple apart early in their romance, Emily falls sick and is placed in an induced coma.

    Much of the movie is spent at Emily's bedside, with Kumail getting to know Emily's parents (Ray Romano and Holly Hunter), who are none too happy about the young couple's messy break-up.

    The Big Sick is wonderful for many reasons but right up there is the fact that Ray Romano's stand-out performance almost absolves him for nine years of Everybody Loves Raymond.
