If you’re looking for something special to watch this Valentine’s Day with the favorite people in your life, then check out these awesome throwback movies from the 90s!
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to cozy up with the people you love and watch a movie, so grab your significant other, your besties, your family, or your ex if you’re brave, and settle down for one of these five throwback films that will make your Valentine’s Day special!
10 Things I Hate About You
This movie has a perfect double dose of relationships with Kat and Bianca’s sisterly bond and both sisters’ romantic lives (or lack thereof, thanks to their father) This movie has an awesome headstrong main character and has all the bells and whistles of a classic rom-com with big romantic gestures, a school dance, and ulterior motives. Watch this movie on Disney+.
To me, this is still the best rom com of all time. The chemistry, the story, the humor! I. Badly. Need. Me. My own Patrick Verona to bicker and fall in love with!
But yes, if you guys need a movie rec for Valentine’s, I highly recommend 10 things I hate about you! pic.twitter.com/JBujzxOpb1

Round up all your besties and throw on this silly feel-good movie to celebrate Galentine’s day. Not only is this rom-com funny, but Paul Rudd is super cute and somehow looks exactly the same today. Bonus points if you all dress up as characters from the film because somehow, despite being thirty years old, the fashion seems to transcend time to be iconic today. Stream this film on Amazon Prime or Paramount+.

Round of applause for Mona May, the costume designer of Clueless, (as well as Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, Enchanted and more) for crafting the 50+ outfits Cher wears in the film. pic.twitter.com/q2Z0Me7yba

You’ve Got Mail
If you want a romance movie that’s a little more mature than the other ones on this list, You’ve Got Mail is perfect. Set in the workplace rather than in high school, this movie is perfect if you want a main character with bills to pay and dial-up. Be warned though; this movie may make you sad about inflation because Starbucks in this film is only $2.95 for a tall decaf cappuccino. This movie is available to stream on HBO Max.
#YouveGotMail… a movie that will never get old to me ❤️ I love it!

She’s All That
This movie, which was actually written by the thriller icon M. Night Shyamalan, is perfect if you want a rom-com with a twist at the end. Set in high school, this classic film has the stereotypical jock going after the unattractive girl in school thanks to a bet, complete with a 180 transformation. Check out this movie on HBO Max.
CINEMA! REAL FUCKING CINEMA! SHE’S ALL THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS AND FOREVER BE ICONIC! We will never acknowledge that they stupidly tried to remake you. https://t.co/ArbhJHXpyV

William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet
This classic movie featuring young Leonardo DiCaprio is a Valentine’s Day classic, perfect for throwing popcorn at the screen and laughing at the irony of the main characters. This movie is also perfect for date night because the storyline is familiar enough that even if you miss a little bit by kissing your S/O, you won’t be totally lost when you remember the movie is still playing. Stream it on HBO Max.
Romeo&Juliet, but the Leo DiCaprio one! Jo dressed as an angel and hero dressed as a knight 🤩 and omg that fish tank scene always gives me butterflies 😍 pic.twitter.com/pc3NTK2gA1
