“Parks and Recreation” has unofficially made Feb. 13 the day for single ladies to get together with other single ladies and celebrate just that: being single. For most it is an excuse to eat delicious food and watch romantic movies together — movies that even Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, would approve of.
To make the choosing easier, here is a list of the most Galentine’s Day-worthy films to watch:
1. “Sleepless in Seattle”
This classic romantic movie is undoubtedly one of the best from the ’90s. And who doesn’t love a movie set in Seattle?
2. “You’ve Got Mail”
The chemistry between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan is just too hard to resist. Best on-screen couple comeback ever.
3. “The Notebook”
I think most ladies would agree, it’s not Galentine’s Day until you’re gazing into Ryan Gosling’s eyes.
Because Albert Brennaman will teach you all the dance moves you’ll ever need to know.
5. “Pretty in Pink”
It’s agreed. We all wish we had a best friend like Duckie in high school.
6. “The Princess Bride”
Every girl just wants to be told “as you wish” once in a while. Even on Galentine’s Day.
7. “13 Going on 30”
Jennifer Garner’s charming naiveté never gets old. Mark Ruffalo apparently doesn’t either.
