Romance is in the air. It’s all around us, and to be honest, it’s delicious. It’s also this time of year that a certain kind of movie makes the headlines – romantic movies. They come in all shapes and sizes and all genres, and we eat them up without a second thought.

In order to prepare for Valentine’s Month, we thought we’d look at some of the strangest, most loved and plain gooey romantic movies out there, and pair them with chocolate, of course. So, when you are planning your romantic nights (either by yourself or with a partner), here are a few to keep in mind.
