Ok so Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us and maybe you have plans involving diamonds, romantic holidays and declarations of love so big you’ll have to rob a bank. A night in can be just as romantic, if you pick the right entertainment. Checkout TNS’s top 10 films for a romantic night in… The Notebook Boys, if you pull this one out on Valentine’s Day then expect a very impressed girl, even though she may spend large parts of the film sobbing and lusting after Ryan Gosling. The Notebook is the ultimate love story; a poor boy falls in love with a rich girl (Rachel McAdams) and spends seven years trying to win her love. A weepy, romantic film that has the best ever kiss in the rain moment. Love Actually Although set at Christmas this film focuses on ten different love stories, so it won’t feel like you have forgot what season it is. Hugh Grant is the Prime Minister, there are a fair few clutch-your-heart moments throughout and if Emma Thompson doesn't make you cry, what is wrong with you? It's worth watching Love Actually to see the hilarious Bill Nighy as a desperate rocker trying to get to number one with ‘Love is all around’. The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind This film doesn’t make love look pretty, but that’s what makes it so good. It tells the tale of Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet), a couple who once had it all and lost it. After their break up they go through drastic measures to forget each other but the heart has other ideas. You will forget Jim Carrey was in Dumb and Dumber after watching this; he is fantastic. One the guys will probably enjoy too. Romeo + Juliet No season of love would be complete without mentioning the most famous love story of all time. Baz Luhrmann brings a modern interpretation to one of Shakespeare's most celebrated plays, while still retaining the Bard's classic language. Leonardo DiCaprio and Clare Danes are perfectly cast as the leads and although we all know what happens in the end, it is the perfect blend of romance, action and a brilliant soundtrack. With action and romance this should appeal to most. Lady and the Tramp
