More and more Montana couples are opting to stay in on Valentine's Day, for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you and your sweetheart want to avoid expensive, crowded restaurants, or maybe you're just more of a homebody. Making a nice dinner, lighting some candles, cracking a bottle of wine, and settling in with a great romantic comedy sounds like a fantastic evening to many of us.

The folks at JeffBet analyzed monthly Google searches over the past twelve months to find which rom-coms are the most searched in each state. According to the data, here are the Top 10 in Montana.

1. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999): Heath Ledger's bad boy persona is unforgettable in this classic teen flick. Set in the fictional town of Padua, the film captures the beauty of small-town life as Ledger falls for Julia Stiles' independent spirit amidst stunning mountain scenery.

2. Crazy Stupid Love (2011): Steve Carell navigates a midlife crisis with the help of Ryan Gosling's charming ladies' man in this hilarious dramedy.

3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002): Toula Portokalos's quest for love takes center stage in this heartwarming comedy. While the Portokalos family's boisterous antics unfold in Chicago, the film's dedication to family values and traditions resonates with Montana's strong sense of community.

4. 13 Going on 30 (2004): Jennifer Garner wishes herself into adulthood in this whimsical rom-com.

5. Wedding Crashers (2005): "Lock it up." "You lock it up!" Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn star in one of my favorite romantic comedies. The banter never gets old and we can almost quote it verbatim.

6. When Harry Met Sally (1989): Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan debate whether men and women can be friends across multiple road trips. The film's exploration of love and friendship over time finds relatable echoes in the state's small-town communities, where connections often run deep.

7. Sixteen Candles (1984): Molly Ringwald navigates the awkwardness of teenage love in this John Hughes classic. While set in Illinois, the film's themes of coming-of-age and self-discovery resonate with the youthful spirit often found in Montana's vibrant college towns.

8. 500 Days of Summer (2009): Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's quirky romance plays out against the backdrop of Los Angeles. However, the film's exploration of bittersweet love and missed connections evokes the melancholic beauty of Montana's vast landscapes and unpredictable weather.

9. Silver Linings Playbook (2012): Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence find solace in each other's eccentricities in this heartwarming dramedy. Though set in Pennsylvania, the film's themes of resilience and hope resonate with the strong spirit of Montanans overcoming challenges in their rugged environment.

10. Pretty in Pink (1986): Molly Ringwald faces societal pressures while navigating high school romance in this beloved coming-of-age film. Set in Chicago, the film's themes of self-acceptance and defying expectations resonate with Montana's independent spirit and diverse communities.
