The Notebook

We've heard all the complaints about the holiday, usually in romantic comedies themselves, but everyone is just going to have to accept that it's Valentine's Day. Some people are in love, and there's nothing you can do about it. Now if you're feeling a little bit lonely or extra sappy today, you may want to check into How Hollywood Says 'I Love You,' this great romantic compilation put together by Matthew Belinkie from Overthinking It. It's basically the longest romantic speech put together from 95 clips of your favorite touchy feely love stories. If you're having a rough day, it just might make you feel a little bit better. Watch it below!

Here's How Hollywood Says 'I Love You' courtesy of Overthinking It:

Belinkie says, "I’ve been watching a lot of romantic comedies recently. By “a lot,” I mean “all of them.” Everything from “A” (Adam’s Rib) to “Z” (Zack and Miri Make a Porno)." Not just any clip made the cut for the montage though as he decided characters must be speaking directly to their loved one and no one actor got to say more than a single line. He started with 285 clips and cut it down to this. As Belinkie puts it, "These people are not just expressing love, they are putting themselves at risk. And it’s that combination of what they say and what it took to say it that lifts us up where we belong." Pretty damn charming, right?

Get over yourself, there any article you DON'T comment on?

No there isn't. I comment on them all! You'd better get used to it...and why is that a bad thing? Love ya. If you enjoyed "Till your heart stops beating" line then enjoy it, don't expect others too...just like I don't expect others to like my opinion.

That lined ruined a great song.... But Pulp Fiction was in there, so that made up for it.

Whether he comments a lot or not, he's right. Everything was perfect until Jacob came in. Worst choice ever.
