Valentine’s Day: The 5 Best Romantic Movies (And Series) To Watch On Netflix

Cinema dripping with love for you and your partner, or the date you accidentally invited on February 14, Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is not so much a “festival” traditional – you are not entitled to a day off, for example – a specific concept that you want or do not want to participate. For other parties like Halloween, which are not really parties, it means dressing spooky. For July 14, to wave a tricolor. For Valentine’s Day, it’s being in a traditionally recognized version of a romantic relationship. Whether you’re downright fixated on your relationship or accidentally invited someone you’ve been seeing for a week and a half to watch a movie on February 14, For Valentine’s Day.

1. To all the boys I’ve loved

This Netflix original series, which dates from last year, has exploded the views count thanks to excellent reviews: for its clever script and for the fact that, unlike 99% of romantic comedies, its cast is not completely white. A sequel is already in development – the second opus will be adapted from PS: I love you.

2. The Incredible Jessica James

One of the best comedies of 2017 has gone completely unnoticed since its release, so if you didn’t catch it the first time around, make time for this brilliant little indie with a flawless lead performance from the always reliable Jessica Williams.

3. Sex Education

Other shows would probably have been content with cheap ass jokes. Sex Education, with its insanely good premise and brilliant cast, transcends – and goes above and beyond what was expected of it. “Sex” + “teens” + “British” is a tried and true formula, and most importantly foolproof, unless you’re me, someone who grew up in England until you turned 19. In 2007, the Skins series was a game-changer. After Lovesick (more recent), Sex Education could be the most satisfying of the lot. It’s a funny show, easy to watch and at times disgusting, but also very serious and daring. Better, the series is a good example of how men should talk about sex.

4. She’s Gotta Have It

She’s Gotta Have It, in English, one of Spike Lee’s biggest hits subverts longtime romantic comedies while paying homage to the various genres and films the director has visibly researched before borrowing. It’s really super funny, too.

5. Happiness Therapy

And also, Happiness Therapy, which triumphed in the price race a few years ago. Jennifer Lawrence got the Oscar, but Bradley Cooper was also awesome as a bipolar man who returns home after assaulting his ex-wife’s lover. Is there a second chance for this lost guy? Never say “never”, and even less in love.
