For most people these days, the mention of Valentine's Day carries with it some complicated feelings. If you're in a relationship, there's the pressure to make the day ridiculously special, even though the traditional fancy dinner date isn't exactly an option this year. If you're as single as a Pringle, there's the pressure to, well, get in a relationship. Even if you're normally happy riding solo, there's something about V Day that just stirs up those unwanted feelings of loneliness, especially this year, when the responsible thing to do is stay home by yourself.
But you don't have to let COVID-19 or stupid Cupid get you down, there's a viable solution to your Valentine's Day woes—and it's right at your fingertips. What is it, you ask? Well, instead of the red balloons, overpriced roses, and boxes of chocolate, settle in for a Valentine's Day movie marathon instead. (But maybe keep the chocolate, too! Because why not?)
Whether you're looking for a cheesy rom-com, a slightly sad drama, or something that will show you your perfect Valentine may have been closer than you think all along (it's yourself, obvs), check out this list of the 50 best Valentine's Day movies currently on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Amazon Prime. They'll make for the perfect date (which might just be the name of one of the movies on the list, too). So grab your S.O., have a virtual watch party with your Galentines, or just grab that aforementioned box of chocolates, and get to watching.
