Valentine’s Day Films 2011

The Princess Bride (1987) Rated PG

In this enchantingly cracked fairy tale, the beautiful Princess Buttercup and the dashing Westley must overcome staggering odds to find happiness amid six-fingered swordsmen, murderous princes, Sicilians and rodents of unusual size. But even death can’t stop these true lovebirds from triumphing.

The Notebook (2004) Rated PG-13

Two young lovers are torn apart by war and class differences in the 1940s in this adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s best-selling novel. Their story is told by a man who, years later, reads from a notebook while he visits a woman in a nursing home. Nick Cassavetes directs this heart-tugging romance about the sacrifices people will make to hang on to their one true love.

My favorite Nicholas Sparks book, so glad they did the book justice.

Gone With The Wind (1939) Rated G

Director Victor Fleming’s 1939 epic adaption of Margaret Mitchell’s novel of the same name stars Vivien Leigh as self-absorbed, headstrong Scarlett O’Hara, a Southern Belle who meets her match in Rhett Butler just as the Civil War breaks out. Living on a large cotton plantation called Tara in rural Georgia in 1861, Scarlett sees her beloved home and life as she knows it go up in flames — but will her true love be lost too?

One of my favorite of all time film.

Groundhog’s Day (1993) Rated PG

In this offbeat existential comedy from director Harold Ramis, self-centered television weatherman Phil Connors is sent to Punxsutawney, Pa., to cover the annual appearance of the town’s world-famous groundhog. After unleashing his bitterness on his producer and cameraman, Connors realizes he’s doomed to repeat Groundhog Day until he learns that his actions can affect the outcome.

 Ghost (1990) Rated PG-13

Gothamites Sam and Molly see their romance shattered when a street thug kills Sam during a mugging. But love endures beyond the grave when a spectral Sam learns that Molly is in danger and he must find a way to warn her before she suffers his fate. Whoopi Goldberg co-stars as sassy pseudopsychic Oda Mae, who serves as Sam’s liaison with the living.
