Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is upon us again. Whether you’re single or cannot see your partner because of lockdown restrictions, or perhaps you’ve been stuck inside with your partner for the past year and, frankly, you could do with a break, this Valentine’s Day is hardly going to be ideal. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best anti-Valentine’s Day movies to help remind you that, yes, things could be so much worse.
What makes a movie anti-Valentine’s, you may ask? Well, we’ve defined it as any movie that makes you feel better about being on your own, whether that’s an empowering story in which the protagonist embraces being single, an ode to platonic love over romantic love, or just an on-screen couple who makes you wonder whether relationships might be more trouble than they’re worth.
