If you, too, are excited about chocolates shaped like hearts, a night out with the love of your life, a girl’s night in with your besties, or just an excuse to wear that super hot red dress, we understand you. To get you excited and ready for all Valentine’s festivities, here are some fan-favourite romantic comedies you can stream on Netflix.
If a movie has Jane Fonda, Wanda Sykes, and Jennifer Lopez, it’s a keeper.

Anything with Jason Bateman is bound

This is a Netflix original series set in Chicago (woohoo!). It follows eight different couples throughout different stages of their relationship. There are tons of big names in this show, such as Dave Franco, Emily Ratajkowski, Orlando Bloom, Kate Micucci, Hannibal Burress, and more! Since this show premiered, I’ve tried to binge-watch it pretty much every Valentine’s Day. The stories mimic real life, and none of them are cheesy. My favorite episodes are “Vegan Cinderella,” “Utopia,” “Open Marriage,” and “Baby Steps.”
Sex and the City
We’re all already following every Sex and the City quotes account, so why not take our love for the four to the bigg(er) screen?! This film has all the same wit and charm as the series, but we get to be with Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha for over an hour this time. This one is perfect for a girls’ night in. Grab your favorite magazines, some cookies and cream, and you’re ready for the best Galentine’s ever.
After being a Navy cook for years and then working in retail, Larry Crowne decides to go to community college. There, he meets Mercy Tainot, his Speech 217 professor. The two embark on a journey of self-discovery and a little romance. This film is spectacular and has made me cry on many occasions. (I just love love, OK?!).
I couldn’t make a list of rom-com’s without an ’80s classic, right? We’ve probably all seen this one by now, but for those who have not, it’s about Samantha, an angsty teenager (oh, the days) who dreads her 16th birthday. She has a crush on Jake, a senior who has no idea she exists. Sound familiar? Watch this one if only for the amazing ’80s fashion inspo, but stay for Anthony Michael Hall’s hilarious one-liners.
Nappily Ever After
Based on Trisha R. Thomas’s book by the same name, Nappily Ever
This critically acclaimed film starring none other than Cate Blanchett (we’ve all seen Ocean’s 8 by now, right?!) is a star. It’s New York in the ’50s, and a
Harper is sent to Barcelona on a work trip, and her party-loving
Meet the Patels
OK, so I actually first watched this in my sociology of families class because it’s more of a romantic documentary. However, the love story is as equally adorable and sweet as everything on this list, so here we are. Ravi Patel is an almost 30-year-old Indian American who met the girl of his dreams, but she isn’t Indian. His parents spend a long few months trying to set him up with Indian women, all while he just wants to be with Audrey, his ex-girlfriend. There is so much to learn about the Indian culture in this film, and it’s interesting to see how all the people in Ravi’s life (especially his parents who had an arranged marriage!) view love.
After her begging and begging, Will (Ryan Reynolds before he turned into Deadpool) decides to tell his daughter the story of how he met her mother. He begins to realize that looking at the past might give him a different idea of what actually happened between the two of them. The story is filled with romance from the beginning, and the love he has for his daughter is also a big aspect of the film.
To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before
Did you really expect me to not include this masterpiece? This is one I’m sure we’ve all seen by now, and we’ve definitely all googled Noah Centineo’s age once or twice. This movie will remind you of high school innocence and love, while also reminding you how much you never, ever want to go back to high school.
After being together for two years, Gary and Brooke decide to break up. However, both of them want to keep their gorgeous condo. So, they decide to become roommates. In the process, they begin to learn their true feelings for one another and understand how exactly their relationship failed. Jennifer Anniston and Vince Vaughn are hilarious and adorable together, making this movie one to watch over and over again.
