From classics to little-known favorites and everything in between, this is what we've been watching (and obsessing over).
Here are our picks for the best romance movies on Hulu right now.
The Choice (2016)
This flick is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel in which neighbors Travis and Gabby basically fall in love upon first meeting. It takes a little time for them to get out of their respective relationships before they can be together, but when they do, a life-changing event occurs that may just affect the rest of their lives.
She's All That (1999)
The classic high school love story between Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook still gives us all the feels. When Prinze Jr.'s Zack is bribed by his friends to take Cook's Laney to prom (and turn her cool in the process), he ends up feeling something real instead. Our favorite part? When she trips down the stairs in that little red dress on the way to their date.
This story revolves around Jin, a Korean-born man who ends up in Columbus, Indiana, to stay with his estranged architect father, who is in a coma. While there, he crosses paths with an architecture aficionado named Casey who works at the library—and who is dealing with family obligations of her own. Can the two balance their love with for each other with what they're dealing with with their families?
Sense & Sensibility (2008)
When you need a little romance in your life, there's nothing like a Jane Austen novel adapted into a movie. In this classic story, sisters Elinor (sense) and Marianne (sensibility) navigate love and life after their father passes away, leaving his inheritance to his first wife and son. Watch it for the 1800s society drama, gorgeous clothing, and a happy ending (of course).
Punch-Drunk Love (2002)
In this dark comedy, Adam Sandler begins dating Emily Watson, the co-worker of one of his domineering sisters who have all royally messed him up. Throw in extortion from a sex phone operator company and the question becomes: can this couple survive in the face of conflict?
Brokeback Mountain (2005)
If you haven't watched this award-winning movie featuring a secret love story between two cowboys, played by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal, now's the time. The acting has been described as nothing less than "raw" and follows the then-illicit romance that takes place over two decades and transcends marriages and time apart.
Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)
If Hugh Grant stars in it, we're there. This 90's comedy stars Grant as a commitment-phobe trying to reconnect with a woman about to marry a wealthy, but boring, man. It's a quirky British rom-com you'll fall in love with.
Revolutionary Road (2008)
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet just love to break our poor little hearts, don't they? In this critically acclaimed period piece based on the novel by Richard Yates, we witness the potential futility and even violence of the American Dream. It's about a couple who reluctantly join in the march of conformity as it eventually leads to trouble in their marriage. Indeed, Revolutionary Road presents us with a vision of domesticity that is so ugly, catastrophic, destructive that you will probably want to sleep with the windows open. Or at least hold the ones you love just a little closer.
A Star Is Born (2018)
This remake of the classic tale stars Bradley Cooper as an aging rock star with plenty of demons, and Lady Gaga, a star on the rise, and they fall madly in love. Gaga's vocals are so goosebump-inducing and Cooper's signature hand-through-greasy-overgrown-hair move is so knee-bucklingly sexy that there's no way you won't leave the theater thoroughly shaken by the heart-wrenching ending.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
In this fantasy, a couple, Clementine (Kate Winslet) and Joel (Jim Carrey), undergo a medical procedure to erase their memories of each other post-breakup. What happens when you erase the memory of an entire relationship? In this movie, they not only forget about each other, but they also lose the parts of themselves that grew and evolved, thanks to the relationship. This sad but seductive movie will teach you that no matter how much grief you feel in the aftermath of a breakup, you can't just will away the memory of an ex-lover.
The Vow (2012)
Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum star in this dramatic romance about a man helping his wife through her severe memory loss. If you loved her in The Notebook, you'll be a sucker for this movie, too.
No Strings Attached (2011)
This romantic comedy stars Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher as two friends who decide to have casual sex with one condition—they won't fall in love with each other. Can they truly keep it "no strings attached," or will feelings develop?
27 Dresses (2008)
Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. We can never resist a Katherine Heigl rom-com, and this one is no exception. A perpetual bridesmaid whose sister is marrying the man of her dreams falls in love with an unlikely suitor.
The Danish Girl (2015)
Follow Greta (Alicia Vikander) and Einar (Eddie Redmayne) as they navigate his gender identity, revealing the transcendent power of love. This film completely contests the accepted notion of a "successful" marriage as they ultimately find other partners, all the while loving one another unconditionally. The only thing more inspiring than this film is the true relationship it was based on between Lili Elbe and Gerda Gottlieb.
Life as We Know It (2010)
Another Katherine Heigl flick, this one also stars Josh Duhamel. The two play polar opposite godparents in charge of their friends' child. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel all the feels.
The Last Song (2010)
See Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth star in their first (and only) film together in this Nicholas Sparks story. When Cyrus, an unruly teen from New York, is sent to her father's house in the South for the summer, she meets Hemsworth and falls in love, while also reconnecting with her estranged father, and rediscovering her love for music.
Pretty in Pink (1986)
Can you ever go wrong with a classic 80's rom-com? No matter how many times you watch it, this one will never get old. A romance between two unlikely high schoolers beings to feel the pressure of their peers, and it's Molly Ringwald gold.
Isn't It Romantic (2019)
The title basically says it all. This quirky romantic comedy stars Rebel Wilson as a New York architect, and things get weird—fast. She gets knocked unconscious during a subway mugging, and wakes up in an alternate universe. She realizes her worst nightmare is coming true—she's playing the leading lady in a real-life romantic comedy. Get ready to laugh out loud, literally.
Beauty and the Beast (2017)
The live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, brought our childhood favorite film to life, and it's pure magic. Be prepared for catchy musical numbers, awe-inspiring effects, gorgeous costumes, and classic romance.
Maid in Manhattan (2002)
Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes star in this romantic comedy about a senatorial candidate who falls for a New York City maid after he mistakes her for a guest at the hotel. It's an oldie, but always a goodie.
Step Up (2006)
Warning: This one will make you miss Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum as a couple. He stars as a troublemaker who falls for Dewan, a ballerina, and discovers his talent for dancing.
Pride & Prejudice (2005)
Another Jane Austen novel-turned-movie, this movie stars Keira Knightley, and it's just proof that there's no period piece she can't pull off. Have some tissues handy while watching!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)
A girl from a traditional Greek family falls in love with a man who isn't Greek, and she struggles with getting her family to accept him, all the while coming to terms with her heritage and culture.
Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are perfection in this film about a spaceship carrying colonists to a new planet. It malfunctions and causes them to awaken a century too early. They begin to fall for each other, and they may be one of our favorite on-screen couples yet.
Cold Mountain (2003)
Be prepared for major waterworks in this epic film about love and devotion, set in the Civil War era. It stars Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, and Renee Zellweger, and was nominated for several Academy Awards and won one.
Friends with Benefits (2011)
Justin Timberlake can do no wrong, and we loved seeing him act opposite Mila Kunis in this romantic comedy about two friends who decide to become friends with benefits. Will they fall for each other in the end?
Going the Distance (2010)
Drew Barrymore and Justin Long star in this comedy about a couple struggling to make a long-distance relationship work. If you've ever done long distance, be prepared to seriously relate.
Anna Farris took on the remake of this classic comedy, and totally nailed it. A single mother is hired to clean a rich playboy's yacht, and after getting amnesia, she convinces him he her husband as payback and puts him to work. It'll bring all the laughs.
