No need to be romantic yourself. Let the 80s movies do all the work for you



It's Valentines Day (aka Florist Appreciation Day) and you're in love with someone stuck in the 80s. (Who isn't?). What better gift to bring home today than an 80s romantic comedy. (Well, actually, maybe a pizza and bottle of bourbon would work wonders too, but where's the holiday tie-in?)

So we give you ... Top 80s movies with romance:
-- Moonstruck: Nicolas Cage falls in love with Cher? Oh sure, that's believeable. Next thing you know, he'll be marrying Elvis's daughter.
-- When Harry Met Sally: When it comes to Meg Ryan's co-stars in romantic comedies, how can you go wrong with someone who voiced over a one-eyed cartoon monster?
-- Last American Virgin: We won't give away the ending, but no one ends up a virgin and Gary drives off crying in his car. Oh wait, that was the ending. Sorry. A Valentine movie for people who are alone. (Bourbon and pizza optional, but recommended)
-- Valley Girl: What is it with Nic Cage and romance movies? Next thing you know, he'll be playing an angel who leaves heaven for some hot doctor who dies a day later.
-- The Princess Bride: "Nothing gave Buttercup as much pleasure as ordering Westley around." (Surprisingly not written by Anne Rice)
-- An Officer and a Gentleman: "I'm sorry, Sid, but I don't wanna marry you." Ouch. OK, a romantic movie for at least Richard Gere's character. But hang in there, Sid.
-- Working Girl: "I have a head for business and a bod for sin. Is there anything wrong with that?" Not on Valentine's Day, there isn't!
