Romantic comedies are best when they persuade you for about 90 minutes (or, hey, maybe occasionally a little longer), the quite famous celebrities are really the jaded singles that they’re portraying, and it’s time for them to fall desperately in love.
Even better is when they actually know how to sell the chemistry between the main characters. What makes the category of movies as fun as it is – even when we can guess the plot–is feeling like falling in love is easy, even if it’s only for a little while.
Also, as we’ve been dealing with a pandemic for the past two years, rom-coms are precisely the positive force that we need to assist us with getting get through the difficult times. We may have seen the city girl going back to her country hometown, or two best friends who are pretending to be in a relationship, or any of the other romantic tropes a million times, however it’s still fun to watch the whole thing unfold.
So if you’re looking for your next television binge or just want the perfect movie date idea, we’ve got some of the romantic comedies you should be looking out for this year. Some of them are out already and ready to stream, and others you’ll have to keep in mind for later this year.

I Want You Back
