The Rom-Com You Should Watch This Valentine's Day 2024
Aries: Anyone But You (2023)
Passionate and bold, Aries isn't afraid to tell it like it is, especially when it comes to love. You know what you like in a partner. Someone who is just as ambitious, driven, charming, and lovable as you are! Of course, dating someone with too fiery a personality can also lead to power struggles between you.

When ex-lovers Bea and Ben both end up at the same wedding in Australia, they pretend to be the perfect couple to avoid drama. Can they avoid falling for each other? You'll have to watch and see!
Taurus: Your Place Or Mine (2023)

Watch as life takes Debbie and Peter, two long-distance best friends, on a whirlwind adventure where they discover what they've needed all along was right there in front of them.
Gemini: Mamma Mia! (2008)
Geminis are very fun and charming in love, so it's easy to see why love seems so easy for this air sign. You're a people person who likes to mix and mingle with folks from all walks of life. And when it comes to dating, you don't have a single type. One day, you might be dating a poet who plays guitar, and the next, you're on a yacht being serenaded by a gorgeous hunk. Love is what you make of it, and you're not afraid to date outside your comfort zone. That's why the plot of this musical rom-com will strike a chord with you. The story follows Sophie, a bride-to-be who invites three men who could all potentially be her father to the island where she's getting married. What happens when all three of them show up and are still in love with Sophie's mother, Donna? Scandalous!
Cancer: Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
Nobody knows rom-coms like you do, Cancer, because nobody believes in the power of love like you do! As a water sign, you're deeply connected with your emotions. You're searching for that perfect person who understands you without needing to say a word. And though it sounds a little crazy, you really believe that true love's beauty and honor have the power to triumph over all odds. That's why you need a rom-com with an underdog love story and all the classic hallmarks of the genre: two lovable leads, great sidekicks, gorgeous backdrops, plenty of drama, and a grand gesture of romance to top off the happy ending. What more could you want, other than a sequel?
Leo: Hitch (2008)
You have a natural flair for romance, Leo. Maybe it's your natural swagger and confidence that you exude when you walk into a room or your sharp wit and dashing smile. Whatever it is, people are naturally attracted to your positive energy. You're so good at what you do that you often find yourself playing wingman to your friends who have less swagger. Of course, knowing how to play the game doesn't always mean you'll win over the person of your dreams. You'll relate to the lead of this movie, Hitch, about a dating coach who helps men woo women while having less-than-ideal luck in his dating life. Tenderhearted and sincere, you'll find yourself rooting for these two leads before the credits roll!
Virgo: Just Go With It (2011)
As a Virgo, you're very careful when it comes to matters of the heart. You don't let just anyone know the intimate details of your life. And people really have to prove to you that they've got your best interest at heart before you start to show your vulnerable side. Still, for all your precautions, every Virgo has that friend with a scandalous relationship history that they're secretly in love with. Who doesn't love a bad boy, right? Just Go With It follows the story of two friends who find themselves falling for each other when a little white lie spins itself out of control. The plot of this movie might stress you out with how messy it gets, but we promise you'll love it if you can sit back, relax, and just go with it!
Libra: Always Be My Maybe (2016)
Libra may appear indecisive in love, but you are a pure romantic at heart. You're not someone to move on from one relationship to the next with ease. Until you're in a committed partnership, a part of you always thinks about what it might be like to rekindle a relationship with a former flame. Life is weird, and love takes us all on crazy journeys, so you're not one to count out a relationship until it's over. This openness and optimism in romance is one of your best qualities. And we think you'll feel the sparks fly with Always Be My Maybe, a story about two childhood best friends who keep crossing each other's paths and reconnect as adults. Can they make a relationship work this time around?
Scorpio: Crush (2022)
Scorpios are intense lovers who aren't afraid to dive deep into romance. When you find the person of your dreams, there's nothing you won't do to prove your devotion. Of course, that same passion channels itself into every aspect of your life: school, work, friendships, and success. So, you're selective about where you pour your energy. You're all or nothing in relationships, so you often find yourself stuck with a string of crushes but nothing more. You can probably relate to the main character in this romantic comedy that follows an ambitious high school senior who finds herself smitten with her classmate. Can she juggle all the drama, finish her art school portfolio, apply to college, and get the girl?
Sagittarius: The Ugly Truth (2009)
Sagittarius is known as the most honest and raw zodiac sign. You rarely hide your feelings, even if it means rubbing people the wrong way. And when it comes to love, you're not afraid to say what's on your heart. From the good to the bad to the downright ugly, you're a realist who knows that true love isn't all sunshine and roses. Sometimes, it's messy and crude! One thing you've been missing from modern-day rom-coms is the edgy slapstick humor that 2000's classics featured, so we decided to send you back in a time machine to enjoy this classic. The Ugly Truth is a wildly funny battle of the sexes featuring two headstrong hotshots who can't stand each other but can't help wanting each other!
Capricorn: The Proposal (2009)
Capricorn gets called the workaholic of the zodiac, not that you're disagreeing or complaining. After all, that cushy lifestyle you aspire to have one day isn't going to pay for itself. You work hard to afford all the comforts that life has to offer, and when it comes to love, you're looking for someone who isn't going to hold you back from reaching the top. However, life is funny sometimes, and it can drop the right person in the middle of your perfect plans when you least expect it. The Proposal follows corporate shark Margaret and her assistant, Andrew, who get married to help Margaret keep her visa status. What begins as a business deal quickly turns into something much more romantic!
Aquarius: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
Aquarius might not seem like the most lovey-dovey type, but people forget that Valentine's Day is celebrated during your season. You might not be the easiest to sweep off your feet, but you still believe the right person could charm you if the timing is right. You're searching for a once-in-a-lifetime love that completes you. And although you may be doubtful about love, you could find your soulmate when you least expect it. Or at least, that's the story in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. This film follows a magazine writer who attempts to ruin her new relationship for an article. But when she finds herself falling for the charming advertising executive with his own secrets, everything becomes complicated!
Pisces: Notting Hill (1999)
Pisces are the most idealistic zodiac sign when it comes to love and romance. You live life like you're the lead in a romance novel, always on the lookout for your one true love. And while some people might think your standards for romance are too high–you won't settle for anything less than a storybook happy ending. Notting Hill is one of the best romantic comedies of the modern era, telling the story of a London bookstore owner whose dull daily existence is disrupted when a famous American actress appears in his life. What happens when an intense affair blossoms between these two lovers from different walks of life? And can they come together in the name of love? Watch and find out!
