Netflix valentine movies to watch this valentine
We all have that one friend who makes the perfect wingman at parties, events, and more. But when it comes to Valentine’s Day, even the best wingman can’t help you if you don’t know how to plan an amazing date night with your significant other! Luckily, Netflix has you covered! There are tons of romantic movies on Netflix that you can watch together this Valentine’s Day. Here are 10 of our favorites!
Always be My Maybe
This rom-com is one of Netflix’s newest releases and it’s super cute. It follows two childhood friends, Sasha and Marcus (Ali Wong and Randall Park), who have reconnected as adults—with both of them now having partners.
Sasha is married to a man she met in college but doesn’t feel like she has much in common with him anymore. And Marcus just broke up with his girlfriend after he found out she was cheating on him with her ex-boyfriend…but before that, they had been engaged for years.
The main plot follows them as they try to figure out if maybe there could be something between them or if it’s all simply rebound stuff. Though neither one of them is looking for anything serious—they each want their freedom—it might be difficult not to give in to their undeniable chemistry with each other.
The movie is super funny and lighthearted and perfect for date night! Plus, it gives some great advice about figuring out when you know someone isn’t right for you or if they’re worth fighting for (spoiler alert: sometimes even the worst of relationships can have its moments). If you decide to watch Always Be My Maybe, make sure to stick around until after the credits! It gets really good then!
50 First Dates
While it’s true that Adam Sandler is unlikely to ever star in another good movie, we’ll always have 50 First Dates. In his 2002 romantic comedy, he plays a veterinarian who finds himself attracted to a woman (Drew Barrymore) who has severe short-term memory loss and can only form new memories on consecutive days.
Each day she falls in love with him all over again, giving them both a fresh start every morning. The great thing about 50 First Dates is that there are plenty of great rewatchable moments while also providing an unpredictable enough plotline (is it weird if I give myself 50 first dates?!) that you still care whether or not they end up together.
This is a tough one. Even though it’s been 10 years since Love Actually was released, we still can’t think of another movie that gets our hearts racing as quickly as it does. If you haven’t seen it yet, prepare yourself: there are 15 mini-stories happening simultaneously, so you never have time to stop swooning over Bill Nighy or Colin Firth (and even Andrew Lincoln and Liam Neeson).
And in case you need more convincing, check out what Buzzfeed had to say about our new favorite holiday: And when Hugh Grant finds his truest love with Martine McCutcheon? You might want them for your next life partner.
This is a classic! If you’re looking for something heartwarming, look no further. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play star-crossed lovers whose love affair spans decades—and lifetimes—of reincarnation.
It’s a bittersweet film with a few surprising twists; it will tug at your heartstrings, but also give you all of those romantic feelings that make Valentine’s Day so special. Bonus: The movie was inspired by Nicholas Sparks’ book of the same name, which means it’s got an extra-romantic side if you don’t mind getting some tissues out during your date night.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, then try Easy A. Starring Emma Stone and Penn Badgley, Easy A is about a high school girl whose reputation improves after she decides to pretend that she’s slept with every boy in her class.
The movie is irreverent, witty, and quite relatable—especially if you’re someone who ever experienced bad relationships or a lot of awkward moments with boys. It will also give you plenty of date-night fodder as your boyfriend or girlfriend laughs at how eerily similar some of your experiences are. Bonus: You can also find an amazing soundtrack for any post-movie dance parties that may ensue!
How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
You might have heard that opposites attract, but what about when that attraction is so strong it’s magnetic? This movie follows a beautiful, Upper East Side magazine writer who aims to write an exposé on how difficult men are to date.
In order to prove her theory, she sets out to intentionally lose a guy in 10 days. With its large ensemble cast of A-list actors and characters with enough back story for their own spinoff series, you can settle in for a full two hours of laughs.
It’s a feel-good movie with enough drama to keep you invested but not so much it ruins your mood. If that doesn’t sound like a great way to spend a rainy afternoon or evening, we don’t know what does.
So, so sad. Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried star in a Dear John tale of two young lovers who are separated by duty, despite their love for each other. It’s like The Notebook, but not terrible. And even if you’ve already seen it — don’t worry, we haven’t told anyone — you can use your streamer as a tool for romance.
The perfect date night is never far away when you have Netflix at your fingertips (and your significant other). These are some of our favorites — but we’re always looking for more. So feel free to chime in with any suggestions below. And if you don’t like these, well, there’s plenty more where they came from. Your streaming Valentine awaits!
Sleepless in Seattle
The quintessential romantic comedy, Sleepless in Seattle centers on Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks), a widower who’s still reeling from his wife’s recent death. The movie follows Sam as he travels across the country to visit his best friend in New York City, with plans of meeting and wooing another woman—but ends up falling for Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a journalist he meets on-board.
Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) is a recently widowed man, who is struggling with life after his wife’s death. He travels from Seattle to New York City, hoping to find love again, and meets Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a journalist on board. Both soon feel that they may have found their soulmate in each other.
When Harry Met Sally
This 1988 classic is a great place to start for anyone who’s looking for an easygoing romantic movie. The Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal romantic comedy won legions of fans, thanks in part to its honest approach toward relationships. It spawned some fun imitators (see: You’ve Got Mail), but nothing beats When Harry Met Sally at getting couples talking about their relationship—and their expectations of romance. Can any Hollywood couple stand up to Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal? We don’t think so.
While some of these films may make your date laugh, others will make you think. If you’re looking for a deeper and more serious drama, Love Jones is an excellent choice. The 1997 Spike Lee film centers on two musicians in Chicago, who slowly fall in love with each other over five years. The relationship drama handles difficult issues like infidelity and addiction with honesty and maturity, setting it apart from some of its lighter alternatives. If you want to talk about what makes relationships last or why they fail (hint: usually it’s not just one thing), consider pairing
In writer-director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson’s Someone Great, Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) and Joanna (DeWanda Wise) are friends who have bonded over their love of music. When Jenny gets dumped by her longtime boyfriend, she decides it’s time for a change and moves back home. It’s clear that something is missing in her life: When I was with him, I thought my life would feel like more of a story, she says in voiceover. But there was no build-up or anticipation.
