La La Land, Best romantic movies on Netflix NZ

If you’re after all the warm and fuzzies that you get some a good romance flick, then we’ve got you covered and then some.

From classic rom coms that will make you feel like you’ve done 100 crunches at the gym to soppy love stories that will have you reaching for a jumbo pack of tissues, we’ve got a flick for every vibe—all you need to do is prepare bulk snacks. 

Here are 11 of the best romantic movies to watch on Netflix.

The Notebook

Ok we straight up wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if this flick wasn’t top of the list. If you’re one of the few people in the world that hasn’t cried a river over this epic flim, let us enlighten you. Adapted from Nicholas Spark’s book of the same name, The Notebook tells the story of poor, young lumbermill worker Noah and heiress Allie, who fall in love during one summer in small town America in the 1940s. 

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

This Netflix OG is one of the most binged movies ever and for good reason—Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky are total relationship goals. The plot is a recipe for high school romance gold—when her secret love letters somehow get mailed to each of her five crushes, Lara Jean finds her quiet high school existence turned upside. 

You’ve Got Mail

An oldie but a goodie, You’ve Got Mail stars Hollywood royalty Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. In the flick, the duo are business rivals—one owns an adorable bookstore, the other a conglomerate. While they despise each other IRL, at the same time they’re unwittingly falling in love online.  

About Time

Romance with a touch of fantasy, About Time tells the story of Tim Lake who’s family harbours an intriguing secret—the men in his family can travel through time although they can’t change history. Tim uses this to snag himself a girlfriend Mary (Rachel McAdams) but of course, nothing is ever that simple. 

P.S I Love You

You’ll need bulk tissues for Cecelia Ahern’s book-to-movie adaption. When Holly’s husband Gerry (Gerard Butler) passes away from illness, she loses the love of her life. Knowing how hard Holly will take his death, Gerry plans ahead penning her a series of letters designed to ease her grief and encourage her to move forward to a new life.

Valentine’s Day

Featuring an all-star cast (Julia Roberts, Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper to name a few), this flick follows the love lives of a series of interconnected LA residents on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day. As the holiday unfolds, there’s break ups, make ups and of course, drama. 

The Kissing Booth

Elle Evans mundane high school experience takes a turn when she volunteers to run the kissing booth at the school carnival… and ends up locking lips with her best mate’s incredibly hot big brother (Jacob Elordi). The duo begin a secret love affair but of course, nothing can stay hidden forever. 

La La Land 

This Oscar-award winning musical follows Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) and Mia (Emma Stone) who fall in love as they both try to crack Hollywood. Seeing this duo together on screen again is more than enough to add this to your must-watch list, but it’s Gosling’s dulcet tones that will have you swooning.
