Hi, I'm Lauren Zima for About.com. Valentine's Day! The perfect time to take your love to a lovely dinner, then cuddle up on the couch with a perfect flick. Or, for singles -- invite your pals over for a movie night in! Looking love for love or taken, we've got you covered with the must-see movies on Valentine's Day. For those who love a good tearjerker -- Sleepless in Seattle is the way to go. A classic featuring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, it provides just the right amount of sad and happy tears, and ends in love. Looking for a modern day fairytale? Pretty Woman is the way to go, right down to the end -- where Richard Gere's character “rescues” Julia Roberts', and as she says, “she rescues him right back.” And who can forget that Rodeo Drive shopping scene? Maybe you're looking for a movie both guys and gals can watch. Try Jerry Maguire; the sports agent storyline keeps the macho male intrigued, and the movie's comedy appeals to all. And that "you had me at hello" moment just screams love. Speaking of comedy -- When Harry Met Sally is the perfect romantic, funny film. Spanning years and really analyzing the complexities of relationships, it's perfect for pairs. Another modern-day classic, ‘The Notebook.' This is perhaps the ultimate movie for long-distance lovers. Noah and Allie are torn apart, but finding each other in the end is all the more rewarding. We promised the perfect ladies' night in movie, and this is it. A hilarious comedy about the misadventures of the Bridget Jones, whether she's single, torn between two men or finding love in the end, every moment is movie magic. Another fun one if you're really looking to hit the holiday over the head -- the appropriately titled Valentine's Day. This 2010 flick features a slew of famous faces in various romantic stories. It's fast-paced and fun. For the more classic at heart though, a timeless treasure is Breakfast at Tiffany's. A story of a strong, independent female who somewhere in her heart needs help -- Audrey Hepburn stuns as Holly Golightly. And what's Valentine's Day without a kiss in the rain? And OK, maybe this isn't the same, but what's Valentine's Day without a sexy pottery-making scene? For those looking for a more sultry V-Day, Ghost is the way to go. And last -- perhaps the most classic love affair of all -- Casablanca. The movie is epic -- just like your own love affair. So cuddle up, whether it's with your lover or a couple friends, grab a box of chocolates and enjoy a perfect Valentine's Day. For more info, go to About.com.
