COMMENTARY: The Best Valentine’s Day Movies for Single People
What does one do on the commercially designated most romantic day of the year when one is not caught up in a romance? Well, the answer is really quite simple: watch movies. Of course, every day is a good day to watch a movie, but a holiday makes a particularly good excuse to go all-out.
A wide range of emotional states can accompany being single on Valentine’s day — everything from a smug sense of superiority to a deep-seated sense of fundamental inadequacy and loneliness is totally valid, no judgment here. Thankfully, the past century has produced thousands upon thousands of movies covering the full spectrum of human emotion. Suggestions for food and drink are also included because a movie marathon without snacks doesn’t actually count.
