A Valentine's Day Netflix & Chill Guide For Every Kind Of Relationship

Ahh, Valentine's Day. A day to reflect on everything you love in life. An evening to drink expensive champagne and nibble chocolate-covered strawberries while enjoying a five-course meal at a candle-lit restaurant.

Record scratch — or not.

Valentine's Day is one of those polarizing holidays that can go so wrong or so right for no reason at all. There are so many ways to celebrate the people you love in your life. My personal favorite is to just spend time with them cuddled up and watching movies together: A little bit of Valentine's Day Netflix and chill. As tired as the slang hook-up phrase is, it does accurately describe how thousands of us will end come February 14. And who's to say who it'll be with — maybe you'll be sharing a bowl of popcorn with your parents, or snuggled up next to your bestie, or holding hands with your boo.

Whatever the case, we found the best movies to stream no matter who you're Netflix and chilling with. Our "Cupid's Picks" if you will, because all relationships should be celebrated.

A classic romance film will do the trick.

A movie revolving around incredibly interesting adults in their late-life prime would be perfect.

Cupid's Picks:
The Godfather (1972): Your parents will appreciate watching a movie from their time. Get ready to hear about how they don't make movies like they used to.
Woman In Gold (2015): Helen Mirren plays an elderly Jewish refugee on a mission to reclaim her family heirlooms stolen by the Nazis during WWII. One such piece was the famous Woman in Gold, a portrait of her aunt done by Gustav Klimt.
