9 Unconventional Valentine's Day Movies

Updated on January 22, 2015

Not everyone loves romantic comedies... do something a little different this February 14th and surprise your date with a movie that's unexpected. Whether you like to stay in on Valentine's Day and snuggle up on the couch with a good movie or go out to theaters, here are my top 9 favorite unconventional picks for a good romance flick.

1. Warm Bodies

A mix between a romantic comedy and a zombie flick, Warm Bodies is the unexpected love story between a zombie and a human girl. This is a good movie to watch if you're looking for something light-hearted and fun.

2. Love Actually

This is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's an unconventional Valentine's Day movie because its set in December and has a Christmas vibe, but it can be enjoyed all year round! Also unconventional because not every story has a happy ending...

3. Before Sunrise

A real look at the start of a relationship. This is the story of 2 people who meet on a train and know that they will probably never see each other again, even though they have an amazing connection. The entire series Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight is worth binge watching!

4. 10 Things I Hate About You

A modern twist on Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew", this movie is about a younger sister who wants yo date but can't until her older standoffish sister does. Great for some laughs and it has a great soundtrack!

5. Silver Linings Playbook

Not your typical love story, this movie is about 2 people with sorted pasts who come together under unexpected circumstances. This move keeps you guessing and laughing.

6. Her

A love story like no other... technology is such a huge part of all of our lives, is it crazy to think someone could fall in love with an operating system with artificial intelligence? See this movie before you decide!

7. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

This movie will make you laugh and cry. It's about a man who is so heartbroken that he decides to have the person he loves erased from his memory. Do you believe in soul mates? If you do then this is the perfect movie for you.

8. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

The cross between a comic book and a love story, the hero in this story must defeat all of his girlfriend's evil ex's in order to win her heart.

Buy this movie on Amazon

9. 50 Shades of Grey

Love can be found in unusual places. Coming out this Valentine's Day this movie is perfect if you feel like getting out of the house instead of snuggling up with a movie at home. About a high powered business man with some unusual fetishes and an unexpecting woman.
