Every couple need to watch a romantic comedy on Valentine’s Weekend, it’s the law. With the advent of Netflix, that compulsory activity has become even easier (and cheaper!)
So, here are five of our favourite rom coms (in no particular order) for you to watch this Valentine’s Day… you don’t even need a partner, they will only talk over the best bits and eat the last of the popcorn… all you really need is Netflix!
1) Silver Linings Playbook
This is a brilliant rom com for people who claim not to like rom coms. Jennifer Lawrence is fantastic and Bradley Cooper isn’t bad either. We think it’s the real life feel to this film that makes it a hit…watch it and see what you think!
2) Bridget Jones Diary
Amazing. If you haven’t seen this already then your life isn’t complete. Who doesn’t enjoy a Firth/ Grant battle? No one is the answer to that question.
3) Jerry Maguire
Sticking with the Rene Zellweger theme, we thought Jerry Maguire should make it into the list if only for the cuteness of the little boy (who must be now in his 20s!!) It’s also the origin of a few quotes that you have probably heard and possibly even used yourself such as ‘you had me at hello’ and ‘show me the money’ to name but two…
Cute, quirky with a great soundtrack and Audrey Tatou. Ok, so you have to concentrate because you’ll have to read the subtitles BUT it is in French, the language of love with is enough to redeem itself.
5) 50 First Dates
Do you remember when Adam Sandler was in every new movie? He was most definitely flavour of the month and this film reminds us of the reason why. Combined with the bubbly sweetness of Drew Barrymore, this is most definitely a winner.
So there you have it, our Rom Com pick! Immerse yourself in a never-ending Netflix marathon of rom coms, stock up on chocolate and job done.
If you do fancy leaving your Netflix den at some point, we suggest you come along to our Valentine’s Steak Night… the only thing in the world better than a marathon of rom coms!
