Fans of the classic friends-to-lovers trope, we’ve got just the movie for you. Always Be My Maybe tells the story of two childhood sweethearts who reunite after 15 years of no contact; but despite their lingering feelings, both of them exist in completely different social spheres, a la a modern day Romeo and Juliet.

With strong Asian leads and a special cameo from the legend Keanu Reeves himself, this feel-good movie will be sure to make you laugh, happy cry, and appreciate your loved one even more.

If you can’t bear to watch predictable rom-coms with no twists or turns, The Lovebirds is a fun take on the genre. When couple Jibran and Leilani, who are on the verge of breaking up, find themselves unintentionally involved in a murder, they must work together to find the real culprit before the police catch up with them.

A lighthearted and hilarious rom-com, this movie is perfect for V’day night if you and your partner-in-crime are not ones to take things too seriously.

Set It Up tells the story of two overworked assistants trying to set their bosses up — think The Devil Wears Prada but with two angsty bosses instead of one. But amid their grand matchmaking scheme, the two of them start to have feelings bubbling up for each other too.

If you’re a sucker for a cheesy love story, this movie checks off all the boxes for an entertaining night-in.

5. Isn’t It Romantic

Nothing screams ‘rom-com’ more than overdone clichés, and the creators of Isn’t It Romantic sure know it. This movie has a refreshingly meta-take on the typical love story, with main character Natalie getting knocked out after being mugged in a New York subway station, when she suddenly wakes up in an alternate universe where she’s the leading lady in an IRL rom-com. 

With a star-studded cast including Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, and Priyanka Chopra, this movie is sure to make your V’day night one full of laughter.

With a wholesome takeaway of embracing love and staying true to yourself, this show is sure to get you and your partner up in all your feels

There’s nothing worse than thinking you’re texting the girl of your dreams, only to find out that it was your weird ex-blind date all along. The Wrong Missy tells the story of a victim of this scenario and how he comes to find love in the weirdest and least expected places. If you’re game to watch a not-so-typical romance film for movie night night with bae, this hilariously offbeat movie is for you.

If you used to be a regular swiper on Tinder and OKC, chances are you’d have gone on many failed dates that convinced you that you were going to be #foreveralone. Love, Guaranteed follows Nick, an avid dating app user who can’t seem to find his match, with each date ending in complete failure. After hiring a lawyer to sue the dating app, he finds himself slowly falling in love with her instead.

While it ticks all the boxes of any other romantic comedy, it’s a feel-good movie that’ll still manage to keep all those hopeless romantics out there entertained.
