We’ve all been there: it’s Valentine’s Day, and you’ve been putting off making plans with that special someone. Buying them flowers? Cliché. A romantic dinner? Too expensive. A terrible movie? Now we’re talking!
But not every bad movie is right for this most romantic of holidays. You have to find a film that oozes with love and romance, one that will speak to your relationship and set the perfect mood for a great night. With that in mind, here are five wonderful bad movies for you and your significant other to watch this Valentine’s Day!
Is there any bad movie couple more beloved than Johnny and Lisa? These two know the secrets to a successful Valentine’s Day: he makes sure that Lisa never forgets how beautiful she is, and she orders in a pizza they’ll both love (half pesto and artichoke, half pineapple and Canadian bacon). Add in those romantic love scenes, and you have the perfect bad movie for Valentine’s Day.
At least until the ending. That’s slightly less romantic. And you may want to look away when Johnny starts making love to Lisa’s red dress, too. Ladies, you may not want to pretend to be pregnant, either: that’s a Valentine’s Day faux pas.
Do you need a movie that proves love has no bounds? Then Ben and Arthur is the film for your Valentine’s Day! This touching story about a same-sex couple trying to have their relationship recognized by their friends, family and government shows us that we’ll do anything for the ones we love. Including murder or burning down a church. And if you need some vacation ideas, take a look at the beautiful shots of scenic Vermont, known for its palm trees and tropical climate. Enjoy the beach, love birds!
Romance is really about getting to know someone, and Birdemic is all about the growing relationship between Rob and Nathalie. You’ll spend the first 45 minutes of this film watching as these two soul mates grow not only as individuals, but also as a couple. It’s a true testament to how two lovers can be more than just the sum of their parts.
Then there are some exploding birds and shit. That stuff’s less important, though.
Sometimes we must fight for love. Who better to do that than MC Kung Fu? This rappin’ man learns that it can be better to settle down with that perfect woman than picking up a different girl every night. Plus, he’s a songwriter who understands the importance of chemistry with his life partner. Plus, when he has to fight to save his family, he gently places the baby on a roof and barely even nudges it while engaging a crazy man in a fight to the death just feet away. He’s a provider and a caretaker!
The best romances always pair two partners from vastly different backgrounds to show us that ultimately, love conquers all boundaries. Cool as Ice asks us the question: can a rich, white, studious girl truly fall in love with a rich, white rapper? The answer may surprise you! Vanilla Ice shows every inch of his acting talents in this heartfelt love story about dropping that zero and getting with the hero…of your heart.
