Show us someone who claims to hate romantic comedies, and we’ll show you a liar. Sometimes you just need to watch a lighthearted tale of two people falling in love and a makeover montage or two, not an Oscar-winning drama that will reduce you to a puddle of tears mixed with the Pinot you accidentally sloshed over the sides of your wine glass.
In that spirit, we rounded up 11 of our favorite rom-coms that you can stream on Netflix. So put on your pj’s, pour some wine and loudly tell your television to play (because who uses remotes anymore?).
Will Smith as a "date doctor" and Eva Mendes as a tabloid journalist, hidden identities and a classic seafood-allergy scene? Yes, please.
13 Going On 30
Jennifer Garner stars as a 13-year-old who time travels into her adult body just before her 30th birthday. She reunites with her middle school best friend, played by Mark Ruffalo, and—not to get too Taylor Swift—sparks fly.
Bridget Jones's Diary
A classic pick starring Renée Zellweger as the title character. Come for the laughs, stay for the Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.
Mark Ruffalo strikes again in this charming flick about a chance encounter between two lovelorn people. Keira Knightley also stars.
Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson (of New Girl) lead this quirky, smart rom-com about two coworkers who are totally perfect for each other—except for the fact that they're both already in relationships.
For A Good Time, Call...
This movie manages to be both raunchy and sweet. Yes, it involves phone sex workers, and, yes, you will like it.
Save The Date
This indie rom-com is decidedly refreshing. It stars Lizzy Caplan and Alison Brie as sisters trying to figure out their (romantic) lives.
Aka the movie that inspired your 2012 Halloween costume. This whimsical tale, directed by Wes Anderson, follows two 12-year-olds who fall in love.
