Forget chocolate, roses and red paper hearts.
Or go for the chocolate and roses but skip crowed restaurants and movie theaters and plan on spending Valentine’s Day with one of our favorite quirky couples.
Snuggle up on the couch with a cozy blanket, some candied popcorn and nuts (or one of six other healthy alternatives) and yummy aztec hot chocolate and enjoy a great offbeat love story…or two, or three, or seven. We’ve compiled our favorite quirky movies, and included a video trailer for each. Our first pick…
Harold and Maude
The May-December romance between 19 year-old Harold and 79 year-old Maude tops our list of offbeat love stories and quirky romances. A must-watch movie for Valentine’s Day or any other day. Ruth Gordon is fabulous as wacky, irreverent Maude – I’d love to be that carefree at 79! – and Bud Cort is great as the macabre young Harold. The movie is a cult classic and a fave of Care2 editors!
