From true romance issues to the gory blood, all the way to horrible chick-flicks, here are some of the worst movies to watch on Valentine's Day. 

“Blue Valentine”

Though the movie was a success in the box office and among critics, the movie isn’t the most uplifting for a happy Valentine’s Day as it shows you the life of a couple who have lost their romance. But, Ryan Gosling might change your thoughts on that. 

“Fight Club”

Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are a great duo for starring in Chuck Palahniuk novel’s adaptation. Though there is a small hint of a love story somewhere in all that blood and fighting, the movie might just be too heavy for the February holiday. 

“A Clockwork Orange”

A great read, but too long and gruesome (but it is cool to see Malcolm McDowell in movies like "Easy A"). 

“American Psycho”

At least Christian Bale doesn’t have his “Batman” voice on. This movie isn’t the kind that says “I love you” or “Be my Valentine.” Instead, nightmares and the fear of dating is around the corner. 

As for chick-flicks… 

“Valentine’s Day”

We love movies with well-known celebrities, but sometimes too many of them in one movie is a recipe for disaster. Not even Ashton Kutcher, Shirley MacLaine, or whoever else can fix it. 

“All About Steve”

We love Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper. This movie was the cat and mouse chase we couldn’t wait to be over. 

“The Ugly Truth”

Gerard Butler who pulled off an amazing performance in “The Phantom of the Opera” and Katherine Heigl who usually rocks the chick flicks, are put together for a crummy and obnoxious one. 

“The Back-up Plan”

Cheesy, cheesy, and cheesy. And wait! There is a character (Alex O’Loughlin) that makes and sells cheese. 

Stick to movies like “Across the Universe,” “Definitely Maybe” and “Stranger Than Fiction” for some movies that are Valentine’s Day approved.
