With Valentine's Day (and unfortunately a new "Fifty Shades" movie) upon us, love is in the air. But there are some cities where it seems to be more prevalent than others, at least according to Hollywood movies.

Insurance site GoCompare.com crunched data to determine the most filmed locations for movie romances, based on IMDB data from over 340,000 movies. The company developed a platform that restricted the data to movies from the last 20 years, and included only movies filmed on location.
