Not every teen has a date for Valentine's Day. So for those who plan to sit at home with a pint of Haggen-Dazs and a dream of future loves, here's a list of the top ten romantic teen movies of all time to round out the night.
10. 'Can't Buy Me Love' (1987)
Long before he became every intern's dream at Seattle Grace Hospital, "Grey's Anatomy" star Patrick Dempsey played a lawn-mowing high school kid in "Can't Buy Me Love." Although he starts out as McDorky, paying a popular girl to pretend to be his girlfriend helps transform him into his future McDreamy self.
9. 'Nick and Norah's Infininte Playlist' (2008)
This is another make believe boyfriend scenario, but with a much more modern feel. Michael Cera stars as Nick to Kat Denning's Nora - two teens whose quest to find their favorite band and drunk friend brings them closer together.
8. 'Say Anything…' (1989)
John Cusack's kickboxing loving character Lloyd Dobler will go down in movie history for his iconic grand gesture in "Say Anything." Hoping to win back the affections of Diane Court (Ione Skye), he stands with a boom box over his head blasting Peter Gabriel's love song "In Your Eyes." But there's so much more to "Say Anything…" than a perhaps now dated pop song.
7. 'Ten Things I Hate About You' (1999)
Julia Stiles stars as the edgy high school girl who needs to meet the right guy, played by Heath Ledger, to soften her up a bit. But students of Shakespeare will recognize that this is a modernized retelling of his classic "The Taming of the Shrew."
6. 'A Little Romance' (1979)
This film is the story of two 13-year-olds who meet and fall in love in Paris. A very young Diane Lane stars with Thelonious Bernard. While her mother tries to tear them apart, Sir Laurence Olivier's character helps them plot an escape to Venice, Italy, where they dream of kissing beneath the Bridge of Sighs. Aaaahhhh, how romantic.
5. 'Sixteen Candles' (1984)/'Pretty in Pink' (1986)
Molly Ringwald was the teen star of the '80s, so it's no surprise that she starred in two of the best romantic flicks the decade had to offer. Nothing could be better than a back-to-back screening of "Sixteen Candles" and "Pretty in Pink" to give single girls a little hope that prince charming is probably waiting just around the corner.
4. 'Grease' (1978)
Gleeks who don't know the classic '70s musical "Grease," might wonder why Mercedes and Sam were singing about their summer romance in the McKinley High school yard recently. For those that have never seen the original story of an innocent Australian student who falls for a tough but lovable bad boy, "Grease" is the perfect tune-filled Valentine's Day treat.
3. 'Rebel Without a Cause' (1955)
This is an oldie but a really, really goodie. Film icons James Dean and Natalie Wood star as two teens from different worlds who fall in love at first sight. This is the young romance classic that all others have strived to live up to for decades to come.
2. 'Titanic' (1997)
Before "Avatar" became the biggest box office hit of all time, director James Cameron's other movie held the position. And it's no wonder that "Titanic" topped the charts for 12 years before being dethroned. The doomed love story between a poor artist played by Leonardo DiCaprio and a disheartened rich girl, is one of the most epic romantic tales ever told.
1. The 'Twilight' Saga
For a dose of star-crossed lovers with a bite, hopeful romantics can celebrate "Valentine's Day" by doing a "Twilight" movie marathon. So far there are four flicks in the series "Twilight," "New Moon," "Eclipse" and "Breaking Dawn: Part One." Those who make it through the entire series on the 14th, don't have to feel like it's all over. The much anticipated November release of "Breaking Dawn: Part Two," was originally thought to be the final installment of the series. But according to Lionsgate President Jon Feltheimer, he hopes there will be more to come.
