Valentine's Day Movie Night~ Movie Reviews by Kari Willinger

Valentine's Day is coming and for those of us who have boyfriends need a nice clean romantic movie right. Well, here are those perfect movies.

Sleepless in Seattle

A clean, romantic movie about love, loss and finding yourself. When Sam loses his wife Maggie he loses part of himself. Believing she was the only one out there for him, he doesn't even contemplate dating, but when his son Jonah forces Sam to express all of his feelings on air girls start falling in love with him. One of those girls include Annie. Who even though engaged falls in love. What will happen? Will they end up together? Watch and find out.

There is no sex scenes during the movie and there is minor cussing. 1 g**d****t and 2 s***.

Just Like Heaven

What happens if you fall in love with a spirit? Well that's what David does. When Elizabeth a doctor falls into a comma, artist David moves into her apartment. Then haunted by her ghost David agrees to find out more about her since she forgets everything. He finds love and her in such an amazing movie.

This movie has sexual references and mild language throughout the movie.

A Walk To Remember

One of my favorite movies of all time. Such an amazing story about the love one can show another. Not only is it an amazing love story, it is an amazing god story. When Landon falls in love with the preachers daughter of the local church he doesn't know everything. Jamie has a secret. Landon still loves her and it shows throughout this movie. I encourage you to watch it.

There is mild cussing throughout the movie but that is all.
For those girls who do not have a special someone to watch movies with, I suggest getting together with some of your girlfriends who don't have plans on Valentine's Day and make some! Plan a movie night! If you are not in the mood to watch romance movies, here are some other suggestions.

Revenge of the Bridesmaids

This comedy stars Raven Symone and Joanna Garcia. These two best friends return to there hometown for a wedding anniversary and soon discover that their enemy is soon to marry their best friend's ex boyfriend. In order to get them back together, they decide to befriend the bride to be and become her bridesmaids, all in order to ruin the most important day of her life. You'll laugh and cry in this movie, but mostly laugh.

This movie has very mild language.

Driving Miss Daisy

A classic movie about a man (Morgan Freeman) whose job is to drive Miss Daisy (Jessica Tandy) wherever she needs to go. Miss Daisy is a high spirited women who does not want a driver, but her son (Dan Aykroyd) insists on it. Together, Miss Daisy and Hoke learn that they have more in common than they thought.

Forever Strong

Star rugby player, Rick, lands in a reformatory after a DUI. Because of this, he can no longer play for his dad's rugby team, but Larry, coach of the rugby team at the reformatory, allows him to play for his team. Through this movie, you see how Rick changes his ways and how, after he is released, is faced with all of his old ways. This is a very inspiring movie, but also a great action movie! Who knew rugby was so cool?

This movie has mild language and has some teen alcohol and drug use in it, but do not turn away from this movie because of this. This is all part of the transformation of Rick.
