Whether you're taken or not, you could use some cozy, rom-com movies on Valentine's Day.

Instead of sticking to the cheesy or uncomfortably intense romance movies, we drew out a list of casually funny films.

"50 First Dates"

This is a classic. Chances are: you've seen it already, maybe more than once. This is probably the most romantic one out of the list, so do what you will with it.

"The Devil Wears Prada"

If there's one movie a career-oriented woman can relate to, this is it. Anne Hathaway plays the journalist-hopeful who turns into a workaholic in the midst of finding herself.

"How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"

If nothing else, this movie will be ironically funny as you watch it with your significant other. Not only is the concept creative, it has also inspired some to try it out for themselves. 

"The Notebook"

This movie will not fall short of any romantic snip-bits, as Noah chases Allie for what feels like a century. 

"10 Things I Hate About You"

The love-hate relationship between Kat and Patrick is like no other, not to mention the sassiest couple you will ever see.

"Crazy, Stupid Love"

This movie is somewhat more realistic than others, as it recognizes the ups and downs of every relationship. And it features Steve Carell, so why not.

"The Ugly Truth"

Sometimes, an enemy turns into a lover?

"Never Been Kissed"

Drew Barrymore sure has starred in great rom-coms, and this may be the best one. She plays a journalist who goes undercover as a high school student, but ends up falling in love with a teacher.

"Spectacular Now"

"Spectacular Now" explores relationships that start off with a rocky start, with one party not ready for the commitment. It's somewhat of a coming-of-age story, as Sutter learns to get over his fears rooting back to childhood.

"Pitch Perfect"

This accapella movie is the perfect combination of humor and romance. It's a modest college love story, set to the tunes of "Don't You (Forget About Me)."
