If you are actively not celebrating it... that is kind of like celebrating it, no? You probably spend just as much thought about not celebrating as many do about celebrating it, but you probably have less fun.
Back to topic. Let The Right One In finally open near us in early February, so I think we have a winner!
We don't normally go out to movies, though, on Valentine's day. Typically, one of us prepares a nice dinner and we just stay home... but now that we have a daughter, we thought calling in a babysitter and going out to see Let The Right One In seemed like the better idea perhaps.
Also, my wife and I would completely disagree on Slumdog Millionairre as a date movie, but I know we are in the minority. The ending was not enough to make me feel very hopeful or uplifted. I believe my wife said it was like being tortured for weeks and then given a piece of candy. Looking at the main thread for Slumdog, though, I definitely realize we are in the minority. (I did really like the movie, though.)
Another date movie suggestion (from my wife):
Alien vs. Predator
