Love Simon

Simon Spier is a high schooler who just wants to fit in, but he has a secret that’s making it difficult.

He hasn’t told anyone that he’s gay and he doesn’t know who the anonymous classmate he has fallen in love with online is.

This timeless teen rom-com is so adorable and will have you smiling throughout the film.

Notting Hill

Is there anything better than a Hugh Grant rom-com?

A famous actress, played by Julia Roberts and the owner of a travel book shop in Notting Hill, played by High Grant fall in love.

Julia Roberts’ character, Anna Scott may be a famous film star but as she tells Hugh Grant’s character Willam Thacker, she’s also “just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”


In this fairytale rom-com, Amy Adams stars as a cartoon princess who is brough to life and falls in love with a divorce lawyer played by Patrick Dempsy.

Sixteen Candles

There is nothing better than a good old-fashioned rom-com.

Sixteen Candles stars the one and only Molly Ringwald who plays Samantha Baker. Samantha wakes up on her 16th birthday to find that her family has forgotten her birthday.

However, things start to look up for Samantha when Jake, whom Samantha has a crush on, comes into the picture.

We’re definitely rewatching this classic!

Love Rosie

Lily Collins and Sam Claflin star in this rom-com all about the right person, wrong time.

Based on the book Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahearn, Love Rosie follows the story of best friends Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart as they grow up together.

Alex and Rosie are meant to be together but between miss communications and bad timing, they keep missing each other.

10 Things I Hate About You

This rom-com is another spin on one of Shakespeare’s works Taming of the Shrew and stars Julia Stiles as Kat and Heath Ledger as Patrick.

Patrick is paid to take out Kat, so that another character can go out with Kat’s younger sister, who isn’t allowed to date unless Kat does.

Who knew Shakespeare could be so entertaining?

When Harry Met Sally

Lastly, we have the romantic comedy of all romantic comedies When Harry Met Sally.

This film poses the question can men and women really be just friends?

Harry doesn’t think so, but Sally wants to prove him wrong.

Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal star in this charming, chatty, and hilarious rom-com.

Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s with your significant other or with a tub of Ben and Jerry we hope we’ve given you some movie night inspiration!

I mean, what’s Valentine’s without a romantic comedy?
