Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. With most of the country being bombarded with snow and freezing temperatures, many couples will be staying indoors this year. What could be better than cozying up with that special someone and watching a classic love story? Here is a list of five great romantic films that you can stream instantly on Netflix this Valentine's day.
“Say Anything” is a classic underdog love story. The film features one of the most romantic scenes ever captured in cinema as Lloyd (John Cusack) holds up a boombox playing Peter Gabriels' “In Your Eyes” outside Diane's (Ione Syke) window. This declaration of love will forever serve as inspiration for lovers in need of a grand gesture.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
A generation of film goers fell in love with Audrey Hepburn as the utterly adorable Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany's.” The film strays from the book, developing a tender love story between Holly and her writer neighbor Paul Varjak (George Peppard).
“Brokeback Mountain” tackles forbidden love as two cowboys fall helplessly in love with one another in the safety and solitude of nature. Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger offer flawless performances and director Ang Lee took home the Oscar for Best Achievement in Directing for the film.
If you are looking to add a little comedy to your Valentine's Day, check out “Boomerang.” Eddie Murphy is incredibly funny, as usual, playing the role of Marcus, a womanizing advertising executive who gets caught up in a love triangle with his beautiful, man-eating boss Jacqueline (Robin Givens) and his gorgeous, charming co-worker Angela (Halle Berry). This all-star cast also features great performances from David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence, Grace Jones, Ertha Kitt and Chris Rock.
“Ghost” is a love story that transcends anything, even death. Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore offer career best performances, as does Oscar-winner Whoopi Goldberg. Pottery has never been sexier and the Righteous Brothers never sounded so good. Fall in love all over again with “Ghost” this Valentine's Day.
