Valentine's Day is on its way, and in coming weeks we can expect to be bombarded with mushy cards, bouquets of roses, heart-shaped boxes filled with candy, veritable parades of pink and red. There'll be no way to escape the onslaught until the drug store around the corner has sold its very last conversation heart. So rather than getting grumpy about it, you may as well get in the spirit of Valentine's Day. The best way to do it? Plop down on the couch to cuddle and maybe cry over a romantic flick that will tug at your heartstrings.

Some of the most romantic movies have big-time food moments. Wining and dining is ingrained in the language of movie romance, whether it is the hero trying to impress or to win back their ladies or when characters first fall in love or cement their love.
Combine a sappy movie session with an obsession with food, and you'll find a ton of romantic moments in these movies to swoon and hunger after. How many times did we wish we were sitting at that table for two on the rooftop with Kate and Leopold, or sharing spaghetti and meatballs with a special someone like Lady and the Tramp?
The sustenance of choice in these scenes may be sweet, savory, sexy or silly but it is these moments that bring couples together. To quote Charles M. Schultz, the creator of Peanuts and a homespun philosopher, "All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." Valentine's Day is for lovers and food lovers to, so be sure to check out some of our favorite romantic food moments in our slideshow!
