It’s the day of love, so curl up on the couch with your sweetheart and take your pick of the romcoms – our vote goes to Valentine’s Day with its slew of A-list stars. Don’t worry, there are also some action flicks on offer this weekend, as well as a lekker local animation movie for the kids on Sunday morning.

Valentine’s Day

SABC3, 8.30 pm

It’s like a who’s who of Hollywood in this cute romcom about a bunch of couples and single folk dealing with the expectations and pressures of Valentine’s Day. The big names include Ashton Kutcher, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, Jamie Foxx and Bradley Cooper, to name a few.

The Saint e.tv, 8.30 pm For those who aren’t in the mood for romance, here’s a bit of action. Val Kilmer stars as the man known as The Saint due to his penchant for using false identities based on the names of Catholic saints. He becomes a master of disguise as he tries to steal a top-secret government formula that could change the world. Have a good listen when he’s disguised as a long-haired artist – that’s his attempt at a South African accent.

When In Rome SABC3, 7.30 pm More romance tonight with this movie about a young New Yorker who’s unlucky in love and sets off on a whirlwind trip to Rome where she steals some coins from the fabled Fountain of Love. You’ve guessed it – she’s suddenly chased left, right and centre by hot young suitors! Predictable but sweet.

This kiddies’ movie is locally made and oh-so lekker! It follows a young falcon who goes on the adventure of a lifetime when he moves to a big city filled with birds, birds and more birds!

Need some serious action in your Sunday night viewing? Look no further – Gerard “This Is Sparta” Butler plays a disgraced presidential bodyguard who returns to the White House to save the president, who’s being held hostage by Korean terrorists.
