Sweet Romantic Movies and TV Shows to Stream

The course of true love doesn't always run smooth, as these romantic tales make clear.

Moulin Rouge

This Baz Luhrmann carnival of music and eye candy is the perfect romantic movie for a pop culture fan. (And who doesn't love Ewan McGregor singing?)

Where to Stream: Hulu

Emily in Paris

This frothy, fizzy story of an American in Paris takes place in the most legendarily romantic city. What's not to love?

The Time Traveler's Wife

Based on Audrey Niffenegger's best-selling book, this complicated love story of a couple whose lives are intertwined—even as the guy falls back and forth through time—is a sweetly sentimental choice. (Have tissues handy.)

And take note: a new series based on the book will premiere on HBO Max later this year.

Marry Me

This new streaming romance features J. Lo as a massive pop star (we know, it's a stretch) who falls in love with a regular guy.

Where to Stream: Peacock

The Fault in Our Stars

The movie that launched a whole genre of movies about chronically ill teens in love is still the very best of the bunch.

Where to Stream: Disney +

Pride and Prejudice

Decide how much time you want to invest in Jane Austen's classic tale of Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy's romance—you can catch both the Colin Firth miniseries and the Keira Knightley movie in the same place.

Gentleman Jack

You probably missed this HBO Max streamer the first time around—but it's based on the true story of Anne Lister, a 19th-century lady who wooed plenty of women in her day.

Chocolat

The romance between Juliette Binoche and chocolate is even more passionate than her love for Johnny Depp. (Make sure you have something sweet on hand when you're viewing.)

Enchanted

Sure, you can take your pick of pretty much every princess fairy tale romance on Disney+, but this slightly fractured play on the tropes of all those Disney princess stories is definitely a fun watch (especially since Enchanted 2 is scheduled to appear later this year).

Where to Stream: Disney+

The Philadelphia Story

A society wedding goes wonderfully awry when the bride's charming ex arrives on the scene. (And when said charming ex is Cary Grant, you definitely can't blame Katharine Hepburn.)

Where to Stream: HBO Max

The Princess Bride

If you aren't already quoting lines from this beloved tale of Buttercup and Westley, you will be after you're done watching it.

Where to Stream: Hulu and Disney+

Pushing Daisies

This criminally underrated show was canceled during a writer's strike—but the quirky romance between a pie-maker with the magical power to resurrect the dead (but only once) and his childhood friend is definitely worth a view.
