The 27 best romantic and love movies to watch as a couple (and where to find them all)

This weekend we stay home to enjoy the best movies and fall in love once again

“What do I see on TV today?” I can’t remember the number of times I ask myself this and the result is almost always the same: 20 minutes of searching, a little boredom and a person watching Instagram with the TV on and without actually seeing anything. With the number of streaming platforms and content on them, it is difficult to choose what to watch, even more so if more and more are added.

Horror movies, thrillers, science fiction… or one of our favorite genres: romantic and love films. Curling up next to our loved one on the couch, or enjoying a romantic movie alone is a great plan.

That is why we have looked for a selection of romantic movies, some of them are the best romantic movies of all time according to experts. But don’t worry, there are also options for those who don’t like the most classic romantic movies too much.
