Here’s to all the Netflix binge watchers and hopeless romantics!
With all the hype surrounding summer weddings, the craving for romantic comedies increases alongside it. Next time you see that another one of your Facebook friends is engaged or getting married and you need a fix, here’s the top 5 rom-coms on Netflix right now.
1. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
This 2003 flick follows Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) as she writes a “How To” article on driving a man away in just 10 days. Benjamin Berry (Matthew McConaughey) bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in the same amount of time. It’s the perfect balance between a comedy and a love story that keeps you satisfied during these high-romance seasons, while still being light-hearted. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is easily one of the best, and classic, rom-coms on Netflix.
2. The First Time
While this is a bit newer, this 2012 movie starring Britt Robertson and Dylan O’Brien joins the array of coming-of-age stories. Both Aubrey (Robertson) and Dave (O’Brien) are seniors in high school who meet at a party and quickly become friends. While this might not connect with an older audience, the movie is fun and flirty with a happy ending that any teen dreams about.
3. Definitely, Maybe
While the world probably knows him as Deadpool now, Ryan Reynolds makes hearts melt in this 2008 movie. Reynolds plays Will Hayes, a father in the middle of a divorce. The movie follows the story Will tells to his daughter of three mystery women, which leads her to guess which one is her mother. As his daughter listens to the trials and tribulations of his past love life, she begins to realize that love isn’t always easy.
4. 13 Going On 30
Jennifer Garner stares in this film, which has easily become a classic. Jenna Rink (Garner) makes a wish on her 13th birthday to be “thirty, flirty, and thriving,” and wakes up 17 years later as a 30-year-old magazine editor. She has everything she wants…except her childhood best friend Matt Flamhaff (Mark Ruffalo).
5. When We First Met
This ensemble-cast lead movie joins the list as the newest movie, having been release as a Netflix Original in 2018. Three years have passed since Noah (Adam Devine) met the girl of his dreams, Avery (Alexandra Daddario). The only problem? He was friend-zoned, and Avery is now engaged to Ethan (Robbie Amell). Noah gets the unbelievable chance to go back in time to change the course of events over and over again, in a hilarious story of fate and love.
