Usually, when Valentine’s Day falls on a weekend it’s a big “going out to celebrate” kind of day. During a pandemic, this might not be the case for many people. New Yorkers have limited options and limited slots for dinner reservations. Another option? Ordering in (or cooking at home) and having a Valentine’s Day Movie Marathon.
Top 6 Valentine’s Day Movie Marathon Movie Picks
The best movie marathons include at least one 80s Classic, and a whole lot of action (like car chase action), crying and laughing!
This Means War
Two of the best-looking actors in one movie? Yes, please. Plus, there’s something for those who like a bit of comedy, and those who like a bit of action. Not like “action” wink, wink. But actual shit blowing up, and car chase action.
Sleeping with Other People
A well-done movie telling the story of when people try to make something platonic work, when clearly they’re meant to be together. One of my favorite Jason Sudeikis movies, and Alison Brie is comedy gold in this one.
All you need to know is this: Ryan Reynolds shows off quite a bit of himself in this one! Plus, it’s funny AF and who doesn’t love Sandra Bullock?
Each year, on the 15th of July, two friends unite no matter what’s happening in their lives. Anne Hathaway is pretty damn good in this one, but make sure you have a box of tissues handy whilst watching. It’s going to bring out some tears, for sure.
Classic 80s romantic comedy! Listen, I grew up in the 80s watching John Cusack movies along with tons of other classic 80s movies. If Cusack doesn’t do it for you, try Some Kind of Wonderful with Eric Stoltz. Equally awesome, and true love finds a way to make it all work out in the end!
You can’t go wrong with Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen in one movie. Plus, the book they discuss in the movie is 50 Shades of Grey. HELLO????? The comedy geniuses packed into this movie means laughing until your stomach aches.
Always mix up your movie marathon so you start with an adrenaline rush, and end with laughter! And, of course, have great food, snacks, and drinks readily available.
