Valentine's Day Moviesby menfol2001 | created - 14 Mar 2011 | updated - 14 Mar 2011 | Public
A list of movies and tv series for a Valentine's Day movie marathons/"Chick Flick" nights that I have used in the past. Of course not everyone will agree with my list (where a movie should appear on the list or if they should even be included on the list at all - not all of the movies are in order of preference), but each to their own, that's why everyone can make their own lists :)
