One of my all-time favorites is Anna and the King (1999) starring Jodie Foster as Anna, and Chow Yun-Fat as the King. It tells the story of Anna Leonowens, a widowed schoolteacher from England who joins the King's court to teach his many children. They fall in love, but Anna realizes she has to leave and returns to England. It's a much romanticized version of a true story taken from Anna's diaries and is the third movie made about Anna and the King. However, it's a great love story and a good choice for a Valentine's Day movie.
My second favorite Valentine's movie - or it could be my first choice because it's entertaining and funnier than Anna and the King - is Love, Actually (2003). This film has an ensemble cast and stars Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson and Alan Rickman (for the ladies) and Martine McKutcheon, Keira Knightley, Laura Linney, Emma Thompson and Claudia Schiffer (for the guys).
The film tells the stories of several couples from all walks of life and weaves their different stories together effortlessly. It's very funny in places (especially the cameo by Rowan Atkinson as a jeweler), sad in others, and quite uplifting throughout. It's a great movie to watch on Valentine's Day.
An oldie but goodie for you to watch as a Valentine's movie is the story of two friends who fall in love - eventually - in the movie When Harry met Sally (1989). This movie was directed by Rob Reiner and starred Meg Ryan, Carrie Fisher and Billy Crystal.
It's the story of how the characters (Harry and Sally) meet, then part and meet again through the years. This is the movie with the famous scene in the diner when Meg Ryan's character shows Billy Crystal how a woman can fake an orgasm. Rob Reiner's mother, Estelle, was cast in the movie and spoke the now-famous line, "I'll have what she's having." It's a good choice for a Valentine's Day movie.

If you enjoy a real tear-jerker, then rent Ghost (1990). Starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, this movie is about the ghost of a loved one returning through the intervention of a reluctant medium (Whoopi Goldberg), who all but steals the movie from Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore (who seems to be able to cry amazingly on cue). I guess the message of this Valentine's movie is that true love never dies.
Another tear-jerker is An Affair to Remember (1957) starring the wonderful Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, whose characters meet on an ocean liner. They are both in relationships but vow to end them and meet again in six month's time at the Empire State Building in New York. She is involved in an accident and fails to make their date, leaving him to wonder if he will ever see her again. If you can't find a copy of the original, a remake of this movie (Love Affair) was made in 1994 and starred Katherine Hepburn, Annette Bening, Warren Beatty and Gary Shandling.
Another of my all-time Valentine's movie favorites is Moonstruck (1987), which stars Cher and Nicholas Cage as the unlikely lovers and has a very strong supporting cast - Olivia Dukakis, Vincent Gardenia, and Danny Aiello. Music from the opera La Boheme is featured throughout the movie and Cher was awarded an Oscar for her amazing performance.
If you have three or so hours to spare for your Valentine's Day movie, then settle yourself down for the epic Titanic (1997). This Valentine's movie has everything - a love affair between two different social classes, and a really big boat that sinks dramatically. The special effects are amazing and the love story between Rose and Jack is believable and touching. Watching them slowly freeze in the water will make you want to snuggle up together to get warm!
Letters to Juliet (2010) is a sweet and romantic movie set in Verona, Italy - home to Shakespeare's fictional characters, Romeo and Juliet. This Valentine's movie stars Vanessa Redgrave, Amanda Seyfried, Ms. Redgrave's real-life husband Franco Nero, and Christopher Egan.
It tells the story of how young women write letters to Juliet and leave them in slots in a wall in "Juliet's courtyard", from where they are retrieved and have replies written by a group of four women. Amanda Seyfried's character finds a very old, forgotten letter in the wall and sends a reply. So begins the modern love story.
