Valentine’s Day Films to Watch (part 2)

4. Love and Basketball (in 2000)

A lot of romance movies are hard for men to watch, but Love & Basketball helps out a lot with drawing male viewers into such a “chick flick” genre owing to its underlying sports theme. Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps) meet on the basketball court when being kids. Their hate/ love relationship develops since their lives continually intersect – both of them are pursuing their dreams of involving in pro ball.

Overall, if you are young, crave passion, or enjoy sports, this film is for you.

5. Cactus Flower (in 1969)

Mom of Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, won one Oscar for the portrayal of Toni Simmons, one confused 21-year woman in one relationship with one older man (Walter Matthau). It appears like one Austin Powers film, but Hawn’s charm and wit allow you to get into it.

Here, the complicated love story has to do with the various lies one dentist tells to keep one relationship. Interestingly enough, it was appropriated in Just Go With It by Adam Sandler in 2011.

6. Lost in Translation (in 2004)


On the one hand, it is among the bleak comedies. On the other hand, Lost in Translation delivers a fantastic romance at its heart. Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson) and Bob Harris (Bill Murray) do capture what it should feel like to become traveling somewhere altogether not familiar and wanting one connection. Anna Farris’ brief moments spoofing Cameron Diaz manages to add the proper amount of laughs to tide you over – it is until the moment that Bob whispers something in the ear of Charlotte, and they say goodbye.

7. When in Rome (in 2010)

Here, Bell plays Beth, one ambitious New Yorker stealing some coins from one famous love fountain during the wedding of her sister. It is a funny movie.
