Every once in a while, I take a look at the “made up” or silly holidays for any given date. I used to do this quite a lot when I’d create bookstagram challenges (which is a throwback). But, more to the point, this week as I struggled to come up with content to create and post, I decided to do a bit of a quick Internet search. That resulted in the discovery that today is one of those silly days which is “Lucky Penny Day.” Naturally, this got me thinking and I decided to put together a list of “romantic lucky in love movies” or at least some that would appeal to that kind of sentiment.
This is why I bring you this list of titles to look through and possibly enjoy tonight, or any day you’re wanting something fun and silly. Let’s check out what makes the feature.

2: HONEYMOON IN VEGAS
Never saw this one, but it has a young Sarah Jessica Parker and sounds like it may be a fun little film. (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
3: IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU
It’s been years since last I saw this, but I do remember it being a sweet 90s rom-com about a cop who splits a lottery ticket with a down-on-her-luck waitress. Nicholas Cage stars. (PG) Find on Amazon Video
4: JUST MY LUCK
This one is pretty obvious, but it’s just too cute not to include. Lindsey Lohan stars as a career woman who doesn’t know bad luck, until she does! She discovers that a hapless New Yorker who somehow obtains her lucky streak. (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
5: LUCKY IN LOVE (2014)
A Hallmark premiere, this one features Jessica Schor and Benjamin Hollingsworth in an adorable best friends rom-com. (TV-G) Find on Amazon Video
Unlike some of these, this one is more heavy. Based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks, it follows a soldier (Zac Efron) who believes a photo he finds is his lucky charm. Of course, he ends up meeting the women in the photo. (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
7: MEET ME IN LAS VEGAS
Never seen this 50s romantic-comedy but Cyd Charisse stars. The film follows a rancher who’s normally bad yearly trip to Vegas changes after he meets a ballerina. (PG) Find on Amazon Video
8: OCEAN’S TWELVE
Ok, so that’s are romance-y per se, but ’12’ is the most of the three films. Catherine Zeta-Jones co-stars in this one that’s full of more con fun! (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
9: A RING BY SPRING (2014)
When a fortune teller informs a successful career woman that she won’t marry unless she receives a ring (by spring), she sets out to make her own luck. (TV-G) Find on Amazon Video
10: SIMPLY IRRESISTABLE
To be honest, I cannot remember if I’ve seen this film or not. I think I did, but clearly I didn’t find it super memorable. It follows a chef, only instead of a penny or fairy godmother, her good luck charm is a crab! (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
11: WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS
Cameron Diaz co-stars with Ashton Kutcher in this romp about two people who detest each other, drukenly marry in Vegas, and then, luckily end up winning a fortune. Trouble is, their married, so who’s money is it really? (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
12: WHEN IN ROME
A woman (Kristen Bell) takes a handful of coins from an Italian fountain little realizing that by doing so, the giver of those coins will all fall in love with her. (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
This darling 2000s (albeit silly) rom-com features Topher Grace (now in ABC’s Home Economics) with Kate Bosworth in a film about a small town girl who wins a date with Hollywood’s biggest celebrity. It’s so cute it’s a smile-so-big-it-hurts kind of romance. (PG-13) Find on Amazon Video
