News__ STAFF PICKS: Valentine’s Flicks

The hearty staff gives you their funk, their sweet, their nasty, their gushy stuff...

Valentine's Day can be so whatever but it's a nice excuse to re-watch your favorite romantic movies. The ones that gave you unrealistic expectations for a first date and inspired your grand gesture at the prom. The ones that made you hang a poster of Leonardo DiCaprio above your bed and taught you to embrace your quirks. Someone will find your damaged and/or clumsy ways endearing! If Kirsten Dunst can pull it off so can you.

Mindy Kaling, in her book Is Every Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns) calls romantic comedies "a subgenre of sci-fi, in which the world operates according to different rules than my regular human world," and we couldn't agree more. We know these characters and scenarios aren't true to life but we love them anyway. From fevered first glances to jaded break ups, this is the hearty staff's favorite flicks to get into the Valentine's Day groove.
