Valentine's Day is a holiday that, if you can get through the crass commercialism, is all about showing affection for the people you love. It's also about paying way too much to go out to dinner ("Oh the 'lovers' prefix' is only $75? What a bargain!")

But, if you're a couple who's more interested in enjoying only each others company -- maybe with a little home-cooked food and a nice bottle of not-too-expensive wine -- then please, let us treat you to some suggestions of offbeat movies to watch this Valentine's Day. At the very least, it will be enough to leave that DVD copy of "The Notebook" unwatched.
