The 10 Valentine’s Day movies that we’ve selected are all available on Netflix in the US and the UK.

This will allow you to enjoy these flicks as though you’re at home.

1. Best Friends-to-Lovers Storyline: Your Place or Mine

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

Debbie (Reese Witherspoon), a single mom living in Los Angeles, and Peter (Ashton Kutcher), a hotshot marketing executive in New York, have been best friends for more than 20 years — despite their very different lifestyles.

To help Debbie destress and enjoy a bit of freedom, Peter suggests that they swap houses and he take on all of her responsibilities for a week. Things go well, but of course, they get a little complicated when the pair find that they might think of each other as more than just friends.

Lead actors Witherspoon and Kutcher are rom-com royalty. So it might be surprising to hear Your Place or Mine is the first movie where they’ve been on screen together, but we have to say that it’s definitely been well worth the wait.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher🫠 A well-worn storyline
😍 Loads of girl-power relationships🫠 The main characters aren’t on screen together very much until the ending
😍 Plenty of funny moments🫠 A pretty long run time

2. Best Feel-Good Love Story: Falling Inn Love

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

Never assume anything on the internet matches its profile picture. That’s the hard lesson Gabriela Diaz (Christina Milian) learns when she arrives in New Zealand to take ownership of a “charming” BnB.

After losing her big-city job and her boyfriend in quick succession, Gabriela enters a competition to win an inn on the other side of the world in the hopes of starting anew. The inn turns out to be a bit shabby, but it’s not all bad news for Gabriela — especially when she finds that the town’s most eligible bachelor is also the local handyman.

Gabriela and Jake (Adam Demos) end up spending a lot of time together while dealing with meddling neighbors, a hungry goat, and construction mishaps. We’ve seen the big-city-girl-meets-small-town-boy storyline play out countless times, but that doesn’t mean we’re tired of it.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 A sweet, simple storyline🫠 Cheesy
😍 Loads of eye candy🫠 Predictable
😍 Beautiful NZ country scenery🫠 Best acting by Gilbert the Goat

3. Best Destination Romance: Holiday in the Wild

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

Kate (Kristin Davis) is a veterinarian dealing with empty nest syndrome after her son leaves for college. To reconnect with her husband, she decides to book a second honeymoon. Unfortunately for Kate, her husband tells her that he doesn’t want to go on safari, but rather wants to end their marriage. 

Deciding not to cancel the trip, Kate heads to Zambia on her own. When she arrives at the first lodge, she meets elephant conservationist and bush pilot Hollistan (Rob Lowe). The two don’t immediately hit it off, but things change when she meets Manu, an orphaned baby elephant.

The movie plays on the classic enemies-to-lovers trope, but it doesn’t frame the heroine as some helpless damsel in distress. It’s a romantic tale of self discovery set against the backdrop of untamed Africa. 

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 No-nonsense heroine & grumpy loner hero🫠 Lackluster breakup at the start
😍 Plenty of heartwarming moments🫠 Underutilized antagonist
😍 Beautiful bushveld scenery 🫠 (Minor spoiler) Depiction of a dead animal, even though it’s not too graphic

4. Best Guilty Pleasure: He’s All That

Happily Ever After Score: 3/5

The unassuming-high-schooler-gets-made-over-and-becomes-prom-queen storyline was a favorite of teen rom-coms in the late ’90s and early 2000s. One of the most popular flicks in this category? She’s All That.

Netflix remade this classic and did a bit of gender bending to produce He’s All That in 2021. The remake sees Instagram it-girl Padgett Sawyer (Addison Rae) bet her friends she can turn grungy loner Cameron Kweller (Tanner Buchanan) into a prom-worthy hunk.

You’ll get botched social media streams, awkward serenades, dance routines, and even a weird fight scene. What more could you want for your Valentine’s night guilty pleasure?

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 A few truly funny moments🫠 The whole movie. That’s partly why you’re watching it though, isn’t it?
😍 Great chemistry between the leads🫠 A lot of product placement, even by Hollywood’s standards
😍 Not one boring moment🫠 Loads of inconsistent plot points

5. Best Teen Romance: The Perfect Date

Happily Ever After Score: 5/5

Noah Centineo is best known for being one of Lara Jean Covey’s crushes in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. In The Perfect Date, he takes the lead as Brooks Rattigan, a high school student who creates an app to help teen girls who want the, well, perfect date. And help him save up for his Yale tuition.

Brooks gets the idea when he fills in for a classmate who’s been asked to take his cousin (Celia, played by Laura Marano) to her semi-formal dance. After releasing his app, he goes on a string of dates, which inevitably change his financial and social status.

Of course, things aren’t as simple as they first seem. Brooks stays in touch with Celia after the dance and ends up catching feelings for her, despite landing a date with his high school’s It Girl. The Perfect Date has all the best bits of your most-loved teen rom-coms.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Plenty of sparks fly throughout🫠 Tries too hard to be quirky at times
😍 Characters with actual depth🫠 Predictable
😍 A decent, funny script🫠Some not-so-great acting

6. Best Cheesy Rom-Com: The Royal Treatment

Happily Ever After Score: 3/5

From The Princess Switch to A Christmas Prince, there are countless cheesy romance movies that speak to the fantasy of hooking up with Prince — or Princess — Charming. The Royal Treatment doesn’t exactly break this mold, but it does put a New York spin on this classic The Prince and the Pauper storyline.

The scene is set when Prince Thomas of Lavania’s butler accidentally makes an appointment for him at the wrong hair salon. The mix-up leads to the meet-cute between the prince and fast-talking hairdresser Izzy (Laura Marano).

Prince Thomas, who’s in New York to meet his fiancée, feels tired of being surrounded by “yes” men and likes that Izzy speaks her mind. He decides to hire her and her friends for the royal wedding and, naturally, romance blooms.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Fun best friend hijinks🫠 More than a little predictable
😍 Lots of chemistry between the leads🫠 Infallible, perfectly sweet heroine
😍 Stunning settings🫠 Loads of odd, mismatched accents

7. Best LGBTQ+ Love Story: So My Grandma’s a Lesbian!

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

A little less rom-com than our other picks, So My Grandma’s a Lesbian! is a Spanish-language film set across Edinburgh (Scotland) and the Canary Islands (Spain) that asks the audience to question what it thinks it knows about love.

The story kicks off when Sofía (the grandmother) and her long-time “best friend” Celia announce that they’ll be getting married. Sofía’s granddaughter Eva, who’s engaged to be married to Stuart, the heir of Scotland’s wealthy — and conservative — aristocratic Macdonald clan.

Eva is forced to confront family secrets, manage eccentric relatives, navigate religious attitudes, and reevaluate her feelings for a lifelong friend. There’s also a juicy family scandal that gets revealed.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Love across genders and ages🫠 Eva can be annoying
😍 Lots of laughs🫠 Character development is a bit sketchy
😍 Beautiful backdrops🫠 Feels out of touch at times

8. Best Romantic Comedy: Always Be My Maybe

Happily Ever After Score: 5/5

Childhood besties Sasha Tran (Ali Wong) and Marcus Kim (Randall Park) have a falling out and go their separate ways after high school. Sasha becomes a celebrity chef with a hunky fiancé Brandon (Daniel Dae Kim), while Marcus stays home to help with his dad’s air conditioner installation business. 

When things don’t quite work out with Brandon, Sasha decides to move back to San Francisco temporarily. Of course, she and Marcus run into each other and sparks fly. But Sasha remains unconvinced of Marcus being her perfect match (despite plenty of evidence to the contrary).

Wong and Park, as well as the supporting cast, provide hilariously funny moments and Keanu Reeves almost steals the show with his cameo as himself. Always Be My Maybe is an easy, entertaining watch all the way through.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Some deep moments between the comedy🫠 Keanu Reeves is so over the top, but he’s breathtaking
😍 Charismatic leads🫠 Awkward moments abound
😍 Full of feel-good romance🫠 The second act can be slow at times

9. Best Classic Romance: Persuasion

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

Based on Jane Austen’s timeless love story by the same name, Persuasion tells the story of two star-crossed lovers who manage to find their way back to one another and live happily ever after.

Eight years after being persuaded to turn down a marriage proposal from Wentworth (Cosmo Jarvis), a handsome but penniless sailor, Anne (Dakota Johnson) is still in turmoil about her decision. Her plight is only made worse by the fact that Wentworth one day returns to Bath, now as a newly wealthy, highly respected member of the navy.

Typical of Austen’s works, Persuasion is full of rich characters and wry humor. Best of all, though, it has a happy ending. Which unfortunately can’t be said for all of the author’s novels.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Witty, funny dialogue throughout🫠 Cringey asides when Anne speaks directly to the camera
😍 Dakota Johnson as Anne🫠 A lot of storyline crammed into a short run time
😍 Not your average, stodgy period drama🫠 Not 100% true to Jane Austen’s Persuasion

10. Best Matchmaking Movie: Set It Up

Happily Ever After Score: 4/5

The overworked personal assistants to two high-flying corporate types concoct a plan to set up their bosses (played by Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs) in the hopes that a new relationship will get the workaholics out of the office and give them some time off.

Harper (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie manage to pull off the impossible and make their superiors fall in love. But it isn’t all smooth sailing. The bosses’ relationship ends up on the rocks and things end up getting complicated between Harper and Charlie.

This sweet little flick is filled with meet-cutes, break-ups, make-ups, and plenty of feel-good storylines that couldn’t be more satisfying for rom-com lovers.

What made us swoon?What gave us the ick?
😍 Excellent acting from a great cast🫠 The normalization of toxic workplace culture
😍 Loads of laughs throughout🫠 Predictable storyline
😍 Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs – need we say more?🫠 Some underlying misogynistic themes
