11 Best Romantic Comedies to Watch This Summer

When you’re looking for a marathon of what to binge on Netflix, we have the perfect recipe: it should be hilarious, cute, and just a little cheesy. These are the elements of the ultimate romantic comedy, a lighthearted genre that’s sure to take you out of your head and into a love-filled fantasy world. Here are our favorites, from back in the day up to 2020.

1. When Harry Met Sally

This Nora Ephron rom-com is probably the most famous one of all time, and begs the much-asked question: can women and men be just friends? Most of us remember that forever-referenced scene in Katz Delicatessen, and iconic scenery, like the gorgeous fall hues in Central Park. There’s so many reasons to watch this movie.

2. The Half Of It

This 2020 rom-com explores LGBTQ+ themes in a way that we haven’t seen before, making it a staple for young people trying to find their identity, and anyone older who likes a good story, minus all the cliche endings. This story goes: boy meets girl, boy hires ghostwriter to write love letters, but ghostwriter is also in love with a girl… just watch it, we don’t want to spoil the ending.

3. Bridget Jones Diary

This may have exploded into a franchise, but Bridget is a heroine we can all relate to. She flirts with her charming babe of a boss, Hugh Grant, but soon gets caught up in a love triangle with her awkward but sweet family friend. Of course, the film is about these rival men battling each others egos, but the way Bridget handles it all in such an every girl, fumbling way is what we truly adore.

4. Always be My Maybe

We’re consistently in love with Ali Wong, and her first time debut as a director proved no different. In Always Be My Maybe a female chef comes back home to open her new restaurant. In the process, she runs into her childhood BFF, who is not nearly as impressive. However, they find their way back to each other. And we love all the stereotypes it breaks about Asian Americans, and women being the breadwinner.
