If you've already worked your way through this list (impressive!) and you're still looking for more to watch, check out our recommendations for the sexiest movie scenes, even more sexy movies on Hulu, and cute Christmas movies on Hulu (which are mostly about love, let's be honest).
1. Something Borrowed (2011)
This messy chick flick follows best friends Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Darcy (Kate Hudson). Rachel always had a thing for her law school buddy Dex (Colin Egglesfield), but could never work up the nerve to make a move. When she introduces him to Darcy one night, they end up hitting it off and eventually getting engaged. Yikes. As Rachel tries to make peace with this very unexpected pairing, she and Dex hook up. More yikes. Come for the cringe-y love triangle and stay for John Krasinki's perfect portrayal as the one rational friend in the group.
2. Rumor Has It (2005)
If you thought your family had drama, just wait. When Sarah (Jennifer Aniston) and her boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo) go home for her younger sister's wedding, Sarah picks up on a rumor that her family was the inspiration for The Graduate—specifically, that her late mom had a fling with a man named Beau Burroughs (Kevin Costner) who also had an affair with her grandmother (Shirley MacLaine). Sarah goes searching for answers and ends up tempted by Beau herself, making her realize just how supremely messed up her family is, and how hard it is to know what you really want in a relationship.
3. Single All the Way (2021)
Peter (Michael Urie) can't wait to finally bring someone home to meet his family for Christmas, and then he finds out the guy he's been dating has a wife. Ugh. So he brings home his best friend Nick (Philemon Chambers) instead. His mom is set on setting him up with a local trainer, but the rest of his family has their eyes on Nick. It's a lot of festive family meddling with an ensemble cast (um, hello, Jennifer Coolidge and Kathy Najimy), plus a fantastic musical number. Consider this one added to the list of best rom-coms on Netflix.
4. Ghost (1990)
If you somehow haven't seen this classic already, please stop what you're doing and watch it. After Sam (Patrick Swayze) is murdered during a mugging, his spirit doesn't go very far. So he enlists the help of a psychic (Whoopi Goldberg) to help him connect with his girlfriend (Demi Moore) and keep her safe. Also, there's a very sexy (and rightfully famous) scene with a pottery wheel.
5. Desperados (2020)
Wesley (Nasim Pedrad) is justifiably pissed after she's ghosted by Jared (Robbie Amell), a seemingly perfect guy she's been dating. So she sends a truly unhinged email telling him off—and then gets a call that he's actually in a hospital in Mexico. Obviously, Wesley drags her friends with her to Mexico to try to delete the email before he gets out of the hospital. You know, as one does. It's a funny, ridiculous, and at times even touching look at what we'll do when we're very very ready for love.
6. Holidate (2020)
Yup, we got another holiday romance movie on the list. In this one, Sloane (Emma Roberts) meets the similarly not-interested-in-dating-at-the-moment Jackson (Luke Bracey) and they agree to be each other's non-sexual plus ones for the holidays. But as the year goes on, it gets predictably messier to find the line between fake date and real date. Also, Kristin Chenoweth stars as the awesomely single aunt, which is reason enough to tune in.
7. The Half of It (2020)
Ellie Chu (Leah Lewis) lives with her widowed father in a remote town. She’s approached by Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer), a typical high school jock, to write love letters to his crush, Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire)—whom Ellie is secretly in love with. Friendships are tested and love triangles are formed in this LGBTQ coming-of-age story.
8. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018)
Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) writes secret love letters—which she never sends—to her most major past and present loves. One night her younger sister discovers them and mails them out. Lara Jean’s life goes haywire as she’s suddenly confronted by her crushes. Unexpectedly, Lara Jean gets closer to one—Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo)—and it might actually work out. This is the first of three movies, so you may want to prepare for a full movie marathon.
9. About Time (2013)
When Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) turns 21, his dad lets him in on a secret: The men in the family can travel in time. Tim uses his time-traveling abilities to try to find a girlfriend, and he ends up meeting Mary (Rachel McAdams), then falling deeply in love with her. But after decades of time travel to make everything “perfect,” he realizes that he can’t stop problems from happening.
10. Someone Great (2019)
Jenny Young (Gina Rodriguez) and Nate Davis (Lakeith Stanfield) have been in a relationship for nine years. But when Jenny gets a job in San Francisco, they break up. Jenny deals with her heartbreak by surrounding herself with her friends for one final girls’ night out in New York City.
11. Always Be My Maybe (2019)
Sasha Tran (Ali Wong) and Marcus Kim (Randall Park) are childhood best friends who date in their teens. Sixteen years after their break-up, Sasha is a successful chef and engaged, while Marcus is in an amateur band and still living with his dad. But when Sasha breaks up with her fiancé, she finds herself growing closer to Marcus.
12. The Lovebirds (2020)
Jibran (Kumail Nanjiani) and Leilani (Issa Rae) are on the brink of breaking up. And to make the situation worse, they’re suddenly thrown into a chaotic murder mystery. As they figure out the case, they have to also figure out how they—and their relationship—can survive. It’s equal parts funny, heartwarming, and action-packed.
13. All the Bright Places (2020)
This coming-of-age film follows Theodore Finch (Justice Smith), who is dealing with mental illness, and Violet Markey (Elle Fanning), who is coping with her sister’s death. The two must learn how to make their relationship work without letting the scars of their past get in the way of their love.
14. Set It Up (2018)
Harper Moore (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie Young (Glen Powell) are two assistants with workaholic bosses (played by Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs). In an attempt to get their bosses off their backs, Harper and Charlie set them up. And wouldn’t you know, the assistants start to fall in love with each other too.
15. She’s Gotta Have It (1986)
Nola Darling (Tracy Camilla Johns) can’t decide what kind of man to date, so she does what any sensible person would do and dates three men at the same time. But what happens when the three men find out about each other? This Spike Lee-directed film, which feels apt for the online dating generation, was certainly ahead of its time. (After you’ve streamed the film, watch the 2017 Netflix series for an updated version of the classic.)
16. Marriage Story (2019)
This Academy Award–nominated film involves theater director Charlie Barber (Adam Driver) and his wife, Nicole (Scarlett Johansson), who’s an actress. The film depicts their divorce and accompanying emotions such as anger, denial, and grief. You might think it a strange choice to be on our list of best romantic movies on Netflix, but its realistic portrayal of long-term love, divorce, and tender moments makes it a satisfying film.
17. Irreplaceable You (2018)
Abbie (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Sam (Michiel Huisman) are childhood friends who grew up to fall in love and get engaged. But when Abbie is diagnosed with cancer, she sets out to find a new love for Sam.

19. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (2018)
In post-WWII London, novelist Juliet Ashton (Lily James) receives a fan letter from a book club based in Guernsey, an island located off the Normandy coast.

Once there, Juliet becomes close with the island’s quirky residents and grows particularly fond of Dawsey (if you know what we mean).
20. Monsoon (2019)

High schooler Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) really wants to go to Duke University. In an attempt to diversify her college application, Quinn creates a new dance team at school.
