Staying in? Here’s 8 of the best movies on TV for your cosy Valentine’s weekend

Get comfortable, because there’s a cracking lineup this weekend.

Did you leave it to the last minute to make a dinner reservation with your other half this weekend, only to find out that literally everywhere in Cork is booked out? (shocker) OR will you be spending the weekend alone/with friends, cringing at all the cutesy, lovey-dovey posts bombarding your newsfeed?

Either way, it’s meant to be a horrible weekend weather-wise, with up to 90% chance of rain on Saturday & Sunday and a tonne of gusty southwesterly winds (no thanks), perfect weather for a cosy weekend in front of the telly.

Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up a list of our top 8 movies airing on TV this weekend, in order of appearance:
