If your Valentine's Day plans include dinner and a movie, you may want to fill up at dinner and skip the popcorn.

Consumer Reports tested popcorn and other snacks and sodas at three major movie chains.

Their results found that a large buttered bucket tipped the scales at more than 800 to nearly 1600 calories.

A soda to wash it down added almost 400 to nearly 600 calories, and as much as 174 grams of sugar.
