The Most Romantic Movies You Can Binge Watch on Netflix Right Now

Lez-b-honest for a second here: we’ve all binge watched romantic movies on Netflix and there’s no better time than February, the month of love  chocolate, to enjoy our favorite romance films including the good, the bad, and the ugly. There’s just something so satisfying about watching the really horrible ones and the good ones help me lose some of the jaded feelings I have about love so there’s that. Since I know that you guys probably don’t want to leave your couch like me because it’s seriously cold out at the moment, I came up with a list of the most romantic movies you can binge watch on Netflix right now and all month long. You’re welcome 😉

The Most Romantic Movies

You Can Binge Watch on Netflix Right Now.

Pretty in Pink 

This classic 80’s chick flick is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys teen romance! Enjoy the sass of Molly Ringwald in her prime alongside leg warmers 😉 This is a total cult classic. The basic synopsis? Andie is a high school outcast while Blaine is the most popular guy in school. Their worlds collide when Blaine asks Andie out on a date.

Bridget Jones Diary 

Bridget Jones Diary is the equivalent to what goes on in my head every day, but with a way cooler accent. 32-year old Bridget starts the new year with a desire to take control of her life by keeping a diary and journaling her thoughts on all things. It’s hilarious and adorable.

Chasing Amy 

This unconventional love story is brought to you by the awesome Kevin Smith. It centers on Holden and Banky, 2 friends who write a comic book together, and Holden’s love for Alyssa, who happens to be a lesbian, begins to cause issues.

10 Things I Hate About You

This fun romantic comedy is a retelling of The Taming of the Shrew AKA Kiss Me Kate or My Fair Lady. Kate is against dating people and, to others, seems to be an unbearable person. Her sister, Bianca, on the other hand, can’t wait to jump into dating and high school social life. Their dad makes a deal with them: Bianca can date, but only when Kate does. This leads Bianca on a journey to find the perfect match for her sister. It’s hilarious and so many big names show up in this film that were unknowns back then. Totally worth watching! 

Under the Tuscan Sun

Under the Tuscan Sun is about a woman who gets a divorce and decides she needs a big change so moves to Tuscany. She buys a fixer upper home and proceeds to renovate while trying to put her own life back together as well. It’s a great film about growth, love, and what happens when relationships don’t work out and you have to recreate your life. 

Becoming Jane

Becoming Jane is the story of Jane Austen, famed author of Pride and Prejudice, and how she fell in love. It’s a great story and if you enjoy period films, you’ll love it! 

The Other Sister 

The Other Sister is about a mentally challenged woman who seeks independence from her family while they plan her sister’s wedding. It’s a great film about unconditional love, striking out on your own, and family growth. 


Elizabethtown is about a man who’s just been fired from the biggest shoe company in the world. Reeling from his biggest failure, he is notified that his father has suddenly died in his hometown (Elizabethtown. He travels there on behalf of his mother to make funeral arrangements and meets a lovely woman along the way. It’s hilarious, heartwarming, and really insightful about grief, growth, and moving on from life’s failures. 


Penelope is a story about self-love. Cursed with a pig’s nose, Penelope is told she will never be loved until she breaks the curse (which can only be broken by someone loving and marrying her as she is). It’s funny, heartwarming, and enlightening on the struggles of embracing our flaws, finding ourselves, and discovering that there are people who will love us for who we are in the world.

Not Another Happy Ending 

Starring the lovely Karen Gillan, this UK rom-com focuses on a successful author who has writer’s block because she’s too happy. Her publisher attempts to make her miserable in a desperate attempt to inspire her to write more.

Benny & Joon 

This romantic comedy features Johnny Depp way before he was widely known 😉 In the film, Benny cares for his mentally troubled sister, Joon, and welcomes eccentric Sam into their lives at his sister’s request. This leads to conflict when Benny realizes the two have entered into a relationship.

Begin Again

This awesome film with Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo is less about romance and more about friendship, but it’s great nonetheless! It has some great songs and it’s all about growth and how these 2 characters form this incredible bond of friendship and help each other get out of the funk they’re in. I was surprised by just how much I loved this film when I saw it in theaters. Definitely worth the watch if you want something out of the norm.

Pride and Prejudice

This Jane Austen classic stars so many big name actresses! Keira Knightley stars as Elizabeth Bennet, Rosamund Pike as Jane Bennet, Carey Mulligan, Jenna Malone, and many others also make appearances in this classic British romance. If you’ve never seen it, but enjoy period films, it’s a must-see! I already watched this a few times since January don’t judge me.


This whimsical French comedy stars Audrey Tatou as Amélie who quietly orchestrates the lives of those around her without their knowing.

Silver Linings Playbook 

Pat loses his job and wife and spends some time in a mental institution. Struggling with his own issues, he meets Tiffany who offers to help him reunite with his wife if he helps her with something in return. I loved this unconventional love story – it’s definitely one of the more realistic stories out there, in my opinion, and Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are both incredible in it.

Bride & Prejudice 

This is exactly like Pride and Prejudice only in India, between an Indian woman and an Englishman, and with awesome Bollywood music. I really love it 😛 but it’s super cheesy


A former-nerd consultant helps other men find and succeed in love. The film stars Will Smith, Eva Mendez and is hilarious.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day 

An older woman is hired on as an assistant to a young socialite and the two strike up a friendship. Miss Pettigrew soon reflects on how she may not be living her own life to the fullest.

Practical Magic 

Two witch sisters grow up in a small town raised by their kooky aunts. One sister falls in love and marries with 2 kids while the other lives a wild party life. Choas ensues when one sister’s husband dies tragically and the other is being haunted by an ex. Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman star in this 90’s classic!


In this Neil Gaiman novel film adaptation, an unconventional fairy tale romance ensues when Tristan journeys into a magical realm “over the wall” to retrieve a fallen star and prove his love to the girl of his dreams. It’s definitely not what you think and stars Sienna Miller, Claire Danes, Michelle Pfeiffer, and many others.


Starring Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom, this quirky romance is about an optimistic flight attendant who chats up a recently fired shoe designer on the way to his father’s funeral. This film was unexpectedly funny and really enjoyable to watch!

Dirty Dancing 

This classic film stars Patrick Swayzee as a dance instructor at a summer resort for wealthy families and Jennifer Grey as a sheltered young rich girl. The two strike up an unlikely friendship and romance through their love of dance, much to the dismay of others. Lots of music and dancing so if you don’t enjoy that, it might be best to skip this one!

The Wedding Date 

Debra Messing is hilarious as a flight attendant who hires a male escort to be her boyfriend for her sister’s wedding. It’s a bit cheesy, but funny and enjoyable nonetheless.

Seeking A Friend for the End of the World 

An unlikely friendship is struck as neighbors, Penny and Dodge, realize they have nobody to spend the last month before an asteroid is set to destroy earth. Starring Keira Knightley and Steve Carroll, it’s both funny, sad, optimistic, and heartwarming.

Maid In Manhattan 

Jennifer Lopez stars as an ambitious single mom working as a maid in a posh hotel where she meets Ralph Fiennes, a high-level politician, in an identity mix-up. This is a super cheesy one, but totally watchable if you enjoy that kind of thing which I do.

Leap Year 

Leap Year stars Amy Adams as Anna who decides to follow her boyfriend (who is on a business trip in Ireland) to propose to him on February 29th following a Celtic tradition that allows women to pop the question to their significant others. This movie is funny and super cute with lots of brilliant Irish scenery and good music which is the main reason I watch it.

Forces of Nature 

On a flight to his wedding in Georgia, Ben meets the mysterious Sarah after his flight is cancelled due to a hurricane. The two make unlikely traveling companions as both attempt to get to Georgia for their separate obligations. It’s a very sexy late 90’s romance movie with lots of rain so of course I like it! I also love the music and scenery in this. Also, Sandra Bullock…

Something New 

Something New explores an interracial relationship between Kenya, a successful businesswoman, and Brian, a landscape architect. It’s a really beautiful take on dating outside your culture/ethnicity that I thought was funny, endearing, and shared a narrative about what women imagine their love lives should be like and what they actually are like in adulthood.


Vianne and her daughter arrive in a traditional French town to open a chocolate shop right in the middle of lent. Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, and Johnny Depp all star in this romantic film. Really, I watch this film for the chocolate.

The Best of Me 

Another lovely Nicholas Sparks’ film adaptation, the Best of Me is about high school sweethearts who moved on with their lives, but return many years later for their mutual friend’s funeral and find they still have feelings for each other. It was a lot darker than I thought it would be and is one of the few Nicholas Sparks’ stories that actually deviates a little bit from his typical story formula.

    I really want to see The Best of Me! There’s such a good range of films on this list. I’m determined to force my boyfriend to watch Dirty Dancing because he hasn’t seen it (what is he even doing with his life?!) and simultaneously eat ALL the chocolate haha

      it was pretty good, but it definitely deviates from his usual formula which I liked/disliked all at the same time lol. and yeah, what is your bf doing with his time?! lol he must experience the Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner at least once! Also, I support you in your pursuit of chocolate 😛

  2. February 5, 2016 at 7:49 AM

    Thank you for this list! I’m less than halfway through two weeks of bed rest and I’m desperate for some good movies. There are several on this I’ve wanted to see, but I didn’t know they were on Netflix.

    1. February 5, 2016 at 10:51 AM

      bust about the bedrest – hope you feel better soon! Also, enjoy these! Most of them are awesome and if not, might make you laugh 😛

  4. February 5, 2016 at 10:14 AM

    I love Practical Magic! I dont really like Nicholas Sparks brand of romance (I am more for quirky or unique storylines), but I really want to see Me Before You. It has Danny from Game of Thrones and Clara Oswald, Finnick from Hunger Games from the latest Doctor Who! SO PUMPED! It’s a nerds magical romance movie haha!

    1. February 5, 2016 at 10:56 AM

      me too! It’s such a 90’s classic 🙂 Not a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks either (although I loved The Lucky One!), but I’ll have to check out Me Before You! That sounds awesome! Also, if you like quirky romance indies, try Dedication (not sure if on Netflix), Not Another Happy Ending (netflix), and A Good Year (not indie, but kinda quirky in it’s way lol). ♥

  5. February 5, 2016 at 10:31 AM

    Nice list! I like a lot of these movies.

      awesome right?! Hope you find something fun to watch haha. I’m not a huge fan of Bridget Jones either, to be honest, but I know so many people love it.

    I wish Pretty in Pink was streaming! I’ve been wanting to watch that one for a while. I finished Dorty Dancing a few months ago and loved it, definitely a classic! I have to say, nothing beats Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Roman Holiday for me when it comes to romantic movies on Netflix, but I also really like Chalet Girl, which isn’t nearly to the Audrey caliber but worth the watch because Ed Westwick. 😉


    1. February 23, 2016 at 11:07 AM

      me too! I know! Netflix needs to bring some John Hughes on. Dirty Dancing is a great one. Love all the classics you mentioned as well! lol Ed Westwick. Not a big fan of him, but I can relate. I sat through bad seasons of Vampire Diaries for Ian Somerhalder lol. he’s a good actor though so it wasn’t all bad.

  17. February 22, 2016 at 7:45 PM

    There are so many good movies on this list! And also some I’ve never seen and a few I didn’t even realize were on FB. I started watching Not Another Happy Ending today, but stopped after 10 minutes because it didn’t hold my interest. I suppose I need to give it another shot. I mean, it was only 10 minutes. I watched Bridget Jones Diary the other day. That will forever be one of my favorites. So good and freaking hilarious.

      yeah! I was so happy that Netflix added so many good ones 😀 Not Another Happy Ending is kind of quirky – not for everyone – but I liked the writing and I love Karen Gillan so I enjoyed it for those reasons lol. Not a huge fan of BJD but I know tons of people love it 😀

  20. February 14, 2017 at 12:59 PM

    So, so many good movies on this list! I didn’t realize all of these were on Netflix at the moment, so there may just be some binge watching this weekend.

    Also I watched A Monster Calls last weekend and really enjoyed it. Yes, there may have been tears involved…

    1. February 14, 2017 at 2:09 PM

      yes! they have uploaded so many awesome new ones! I hope you enjoy them 🙂 YES!!! OMG A Monster Calls got me so good. I didn’t expect to cry in that film! It was such a good one though haha. Glad you loved it too! xx

  21. February 15, 2017 at 3:14 PM

    Hi Tianna, your post has been featured at our Valentine’s Day Blog Hop. In fact I ended up watching one of your recommendations, Not another happy ending. And yes I have seen Pride and Prejudice way too many times than is good for my health. Isn’t the soundtrack amazing?
