The top 10 movies for Valentine's Day

10. Lady and The Tramp (1955) — A timeless classic love story. The two lovers go on several dates and generally just enjoy each other’s company. It’s a story of lovers from the opposite side of the tracks, she a well groomed ‘lady’ and he a ‘tramp’ just looking for his next meal. It’s truly a story for the dogs.

9. Jerry Maguire (1996) — “You had me at hello.” That’s the response that Renee Zellweger’s character gives to Tom Cruise when he arrives at her house and tries to mend their relationship.

8. West Side Story (1961) — This is a modern day Romeo and Juliet story set in New York City. Two individuals, Maria and Tony, who have very different backgrounds, see each other and instantly fall in love.

7. Sleepless in Seattle (1993) — Jonah, the son of a widower calls a local radio station looking for a new mother. His father goes on and apologizes to the audience, which sets off this tale of hopeless romance.

6. Ghost (1990) — Not even death can keep these two lovers from each other.

5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) — What do you do when you can’t stop thinking about the love of your life, whom you are no longer with? Simple, just have their memory erased from your head.

4. When Harry Met Sally (1989) — Some of the best dialogue in movie history. Just as this quote that is all about what Harry loves about Sally:

“I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

3. An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) — How many women secretly wish that the love of their life would show up and whisk them away to a lifetime of happiness? Probably everyone that watches this film does, at least for a moment.

2. Titanic (1997) — As much as I love to hate this film personally, it truly is a tale of great romance between Jack and Rose. Plus at least at the end you get to see some carnage as the ship goes down.

1. Casablanca (1942) — This captivating movie about lovers that reconnect continents apart from where they met proves that no matter what happens, or how much time has elapsed true love will prevail.
