Take a tip from teenagers this Valentine’s Day and do it up big. Everything’s a grand gesture when you’re young and these teen movies prove that young love trumps all. So get out there and do something nice for your significant other – and we don’t just mean getting tickets to the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
1. Say Anything
The now-iconic boombox gesture. Except these days it would probably involve holding up an iPhone or something.
2. The Fault In Our Stars
Augustus used his wish to give Hazel her dream trip to Amsterdam. Sigh…
3. 10 Things I Hate About You
The public singing and dancing. How could you resist?
Edward would watch Bella as she slept (which definitely sounds creepy now that we think about it) and he took her flying through the woods. Unconventional romance, to be sure, but she swooned nonetheless.
5. Cruel Intentions
When a bad boy reveals his sensitive side to you, you know it’s love.
6. A Walk to Remember
He married her and fulfilled her dying wish, doesn’t get more grand than that.
7. Moonrise Kingdom
What’s more romantic than running away together?
8. Romeo + Juliet
The classic tale of star-crossed lovers. They basically disown their families to be together. They also die in the end but let’s just pretend it all worked out.
9. Save the Last Dance
Being a good dancer: hot. Showing up to your girl’s dance audition because you know how important it is to her: even hotter.
10. The Perks of Being a Wallflower
We kind of wish people still exchanged mixtapes like Charlie and Sam.
11. The Notebook
Noah climbs a Ferris wheel just to ask Allie out. Yeah, he’s kind of insane…but in the most romantic way.
Juno fills Paulie Bleeker’s mailbox with his favorite orange Tic Tacs. Even sassy Juno can be sweet.
