  1. Oh wow. I’m drooling down the list and thinking, ‘I’ve seen that’ and ‘omg, I remember that. 😆. A Cinderella story was my favourite. I was a teenager when some of the movies were out. Brilliant list. Thank you.

  2. What a fantastic list of Valentine’s Day movies! I love that you have Little Women on this list. I love the 1994 version and the book. Another movie you could add to this list is Disney’s Lady and the Tramp.

  3. I’m spending Valentine’s Day evening working, cooking with my daughters and then watching tv with my son as the hubby is working. Thanks for the list of movies, I can see a few that would be perfect for when I finish work shortly.

  4. I’ve been searching for some family-friendly options for our Valentine’s Day movie marathon, and this selection is just perfect!

  5. I have seen many of these — so many great choices on the list! Lots of wonderful and entertaining films to choose from. Most of these bring back memories as it has been a while since I have seen them. It is fun to revisit a bunch and also check out new ones.

  6. I would add One Day – inspired by the David Nichol’s book – it’s one I really like a lot. I’ve seen most of these – one that I haven’t is the Fault in our stars, probably should…
