10 Best Rom-Coms Now Available on Streaming

I may be a genuine fan of the genre, but not all rom-coms grace my list of the best of the best. Only those I'll rewatch 121 times when I am feeling blue and drowning my sorrows in a tub of whiskey-laced ice cream made the list.

About Time

Tim, the show's star, discovers at age 21 that all the men in his family can travel through time. Havoc ensues as he tries to use his newfound powers to help everyone he loves, avoid regrets, and get his crush to pay him attention.

The Half of It

In this rom-com, we do get handed our fair share of romantic proclamations and the sweet, simple joys and heartbreaks of teenhood.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

The film focuses less on the romance of the words. Instead, it draws our attention to the budding romance between Peter and eccentric, awkward, too-cool-for-school Lara Jean Covey.

To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You

Another sweet, teenage angst-filled tale, this film not only addresses Lara Jean's insecurities but also reminds us to question the idea of an “ideal” partner.

Love, Simon

It has the bittersweet pangs of sweet new young adulthood. It deals with identity crisis, a dramatic coming-out moment, and queer friendship—with all its love and heartbreak.

Someone Great

Someone Great is a reminder to reach back out to the friend who first told you that it was okay to get your heart broken and that she would wait on the other side with wine and chocolates.

The Lovebirds

It begins by telling a tale as old as time. A university senior once warned me, “Never date your best friend.” Unfortunately, it seems no one reminded Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani's characters of the repercussions of such a seemingly bright but often wretched idea in reality.
