Valentine’s Day Must Watch but with a Twist!


When Harry Met Sally

When looking for the ideal Valentine’s Day movie, look no further than “When Harry Met Sally.” This fan favorite follows Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal as they play two college friends who disagree on the possibility of men and women being friends, as physical attraction, stated by Harry, tends to get in the way. Over the course of the next 12 years, they happen upon one another and catch up, deciding they’re better off going their separate ways, as Harry is still adamant about his belief that men and women can’t be just friends. This classic love story will have you rooting for these two to finally see how perfect they are for each other. Littered with romantic comedic lines and tropes you often see today, this film has had a lasting effect on cinema. If you’ve never seen this movie, I recommend picking it up so you too can know the story of “When Harry Met Sally.”


How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days 

“How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” tells the story of two New Yorkers, Andie and Ben, as they engage in a battle of the sexes. Andie is stuck writing love columns at her job and Ben is an advertising man who wants to land a diamond account. Andie strikes an idea of writing about ways in which women push men away. She decides she will demonstrate this by doing all of the relationship don’ts and losing a guy in 10 days. Ben, wanting to land the diamonds account, promises his boss he knows all about women and tells him he’ll make a woman fall for him in under two weeks. Their paths cross and what ensues is a hilarious series of events where neither one is aware of the other’s ulterior motives. A refreshing take on the romantic comedy genre, this movie has it all – laughter, chemistry, a great cast, and a sweet love story all wrapped up in one. If you like your romantic comedies with more humor than romance, I definitely recommend this movie. Andie’s goal since the movie began was to pursue a different magazine that would allow her to write about more important things.


Valentine’s Day

What better movie to watch on Valentine’s Day than a movie titled “Valentine’s Day.” This movie chronicles the story of almost two dozen people as they either lose or find love, all in the matter of a particular Valentine’s Day. An ensemble filled with Hollywood stars, such as Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Garner, Taylor Swift, Julia Roberts, Patrick Dempsey, and more, this film will have you invested in several different relationships at once. In an ambitious task, “Valentine’s Day” captures the true essence of the holiday: it’s not always rainbows and sunshine but if you try hard enough, you might find your true love.

We’re not done yet! Here comes the twist….

Many times we’ll watch romance movies and question why the ending is always a happy ever after when most times in life, love doesn’t pan out that way. I think it’s time to give these love films a new ending…a more realistic one.

Let’s start with “How to lose a guy in 10 days.” The film should have ended with Andy going off to pursue the career she longed for instead of staying in New York to be with Ben. I believe the movie should have ended this way considering the fact that Andie had a strong personality that would have never allowed her to stop pursuing her dream for a guy.

Next, we have “When Harry Met Sally“, the movie that was centered around one concept — Can a man and woman be just friends? Just to spice things up, “When Harry Met Sally” should have concluded with Harry and Sally remaining friends. I mean, come on let’s face it aren’t we all tired of being accused of liking that one person who we strictly see as just a friend? Believe it or not, there are members of the opposite sex out there in the world who are nothing more than just friends!

Last, but never least we have the famous “Valentine’s Day.” If you watched this movie you know that this one is a real tear jerker from start to finish. Throughout the whole movie we see all the different characters introduced experience some realistic and heartbreaking moments.  I would not change a thing about the ending of the film simply because the movie had realistic love problems that each and every one of us can relate to!
