Coming up next week is what is considered to be one of the most romantic days of the year, Valentine’s Day. The Campus Citizen has decided to put together a selection of romance films that one should and should not watch on the upcoming holiday. On a general consensus among audiences, these films are considered universally praised as romances that are worth watching, while the other films on this list could be considered universally distressing to watch with your significant other.
