If you’re planning on staying home this Valentine’s Day and are looking for something romantic to watch with your loved one, I know the perfect collection of movies that you should watch.

Mill Creek Entertainment just released an eight movie set called “Chick Flicks” and it contains some of the most romantic and emotional films to watch with your significant other.

To be perfectly honest, I had never seen any of these films before until I received a review copy DVD set from Mill Creek Entertainment.  My wife and I did watch most of them.  The others I watched by myself, and I do have to admit that I really enjoyed the films in this collection.

The “Chick Flicks” set includes eight films on two DVDs with four movies on each disc.

I really think that the selection of films in this set is perfect, and I feel that just about everyone who buys “Chick Flicks” will feel the same way.

The movies that are included are:
 - “If Lucy Fell” Rated R
 - “Imaginary Heroes” Rated R
 - “Sweet Hearts Dance” Rated R
 - “You Light Up My Life” Rated PG
 - “Moscow on the Hudson” Rated R
 - “Mr. Jones” Rated R
 - “I’m With Lucy” Rated R
 - “Lies & Alibis” Rated R

These films also have some of the biggest and most well know stars such as Susan Sarandon, Jeff Daniels, Robin Williams, Don Johnson, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Ben Stiller.

Two of my favorite movies in the collection are “If Lucy Fell” and “Lies and Alibis.”   I thought that they were very entertaining, and I really liked the actors in both films.  “If Lucy Fell” has Ben Stiller in it, and I really like his acting a lot, and I think he is funny.  He tends to play some off the wall characters, and he plays a painter that paints with his entire body.  I really thought the premise behind “Lies and Alibis” was pretty interesting also.  It’s about a service that creates alibis for people that cheat, and one of their clients kills his mistress, and they have to try and cover it up.  It’s a great film.

I really enjoyed Mill Creek Entertainment’s “Chick Flicks” eight-movie set a lot.  I feel that there is a great selection of touching and emotional films to watch with that special someone.  People who buy this collection of films are not going to be disappointed.  After watching these films, there will not be a dry eye.  I guarantee it.
