To help you live your best romantic life, FANDOM has created a list of the best romance movies currently available to stream on Netflix.
Love, Actually (2003)
This classic English rom-com may take place at Christmas time, but the laughter works all year long. The trials and tribulations of love are told through several intersecting stories, including a romance between the Prime Minister of England (Hugh Grant) and a member of his household staff (Martine McCutcheon), a widower (Liam Neeson) who helps his young stepson with his grade-school crush, and a brokenhearted writer (Colin Firth) who falls for his Portuguese housekeeper.
America’s Sweethearts (2001)
It’s always fun to take a peek behind the curtain of Hollywood and this romantic comedy from 2001 provides the perfect opportunity. Eddie (John Cusack) and Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) are a Hollywood power couple who broke up right before having to promote their new movie together. Things get complicated when Gwen’s sister Kiki (Julia Roberts) starts falling for Eddie, while Billy Crystal plays the publicist that’s desperately trying to keep things running smoothly. That’s quite a cast and quite a good time.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
More than just the ’90s earworm from Deep Blue Something, Breakfast at Tiffany’s stars Audrey Hepburn as Manhattan party girl Holly Golightly. Based on Truman Capote’s novel of the same name, the film made Hepburn a symbol for those who dream of a magical life. But Holly’s priorities slightly shift when she starts to fall for the new neighbor, Paul Varjak (George Peppard).
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
Kate Hudson stars as Andie Anderson, an advice columnist who’s on a mission to get a man to leave her in ten days for her next article. Meanwhile, Matthew McConaughey plays Ben, a business exec who bets he can make any woman fall for him in, you guessed it, ten days. Hilarity ensues as the duo lie and manipulate their way into each other’s hearts. What could be more romantic than that?
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
A classic in the world of romantic comedies, Bridget Jones’s Diary stars Renée Zellweger as the titular character who journals about her quest to become a better person. But as it sometimes does, romance gets in the way of her plans thanks to a love triangle with two suitors played by Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
Y Tu Mamá También (2001)
This bawdy tale of two best friends (Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna) on a road trip with an older woman broke box-office records in Mexico when it was released. Everyone has secrets on the road trip, which is fueled by a heavy dose of sexual tension. Featuring a barrier-breaking sex scene, especially for 2001, this is the perfect movie on the list to inspire you to get hot and heavy on February 14.
Sure, Clueless is considered one of the greatest high school movies of all time, but it also tells a beautiful story of young love between rich Beverly Hills teens. Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) is on a mission to help those less fortunate than herself and hopes to nab a boyfriend in the process. As she interacts with her stepbrother Josh (Paul Rudd) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), Cher eventually finds love where she least expects it.
The love story between Jack and Rose in Titanic is about as romantic as it gets. It also happens to be a horrifically tragic tale, but no one ever said love was easy. The couple (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, of course) defy Rose’s family and rotten fiancé (Billy Zane), pushing past their socioeconomic differences to find true love … for about 24 hours until the ship sinks.
