27 Totally Underrated Rom-Coms You Can Watch On Netflix Right Now

Movie marathon, anyone?

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the best romantic comedies they've found on Netflix. Here are their recommendations...

1. Before We Go (2014)


Watch on: Netflix US, UK, Canada, and more

"It's directed by Chris Evans and it's such a cute story. It's a nice indie movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon." – chelsrene

2. The Decoy Bride (2011)


Watch on: Netflix US

"It stars David Tennant as James Arber, an author who is engaged to an extremely famous actress (Alice Eve). The couple is trying to have a private wedding, but can't escape the paparazzi. Their solution is to go to the tiny island of Hegg in Scotland which is the setting of his famous book. Only he's never actually been there before, and the locals aren't as enamoured of his book as his fiancée is. It's the cutest rom-com, and my husband actually likes watching it with me." – Cate Flanagan, Facebook

3. Our Lovers (2016)

"It's in Spanish, but has English subtitles. I watched it two nights in a row because it's so sweet!" – Montgomery Marie, Facebook

4. For a Good Time, Call... (2012)

Focus Features

"It was so unexpectedly funny! While there are definitely dating ups and downs, it's almost like a romantic comedy about best friends. They start out as roommates hating each other and become business owners and BFFs along the way." – yesnokatyso

5. The 10 Year Plan (2014)


Watch on: Netflix Worldwide

"It's about two gay friends who make a pact at age 25 to become a couple if they haven't found anyone by 35. Ten years later, they're still best friends, but they may or may not have feelings for each other..." – Mary Grace Buckley, Facebook

6. The DUFF (2015)


Watch on: Netflix UK, France, India, and more

"It's a pretty smart and funny film. Girl likes crush, girl employs the help of her neighbour, who was once her BFF as kids, to help her become attractive, girl realises crush is a vapid tool, girl then realises it's the neighbour who had her heart all along." – Tammy Taitt, Facebook

7. Someone Like You (2001)

20th Century Fox

Watch on: Netflix US and France

"It's a really adorable movie. Don't get me wrong, the beginning is really maddening, but it gets real cute real quick. And of course it has the nice fairytale ending with Hugh Jackman." – erika10vachon

8. Last Holiday (2006)

Paramount Pictures

Watch on: Netflix UK and more

"It's cheesy as heck, but I love me some Last Holiday. Queen Latifah treating herself against the magical background of Karlovy Vary makes it one of those perfect Sunday afternoon films." – Maria Kanno, Facebook

9. Beauty and the Briefcase (2010)

ABC Family

Watch on: Netflix US, Italy, and more

"It's about a girl who goes undercover to write an article for Cosmo about finding love in the business world using a list of criteria for her 'magic man'. And it stars Hilary Duff – need I say more?" – Kara Farley, Facebook

10. Man Up (2015)


Watch on: Netflix US and Canada

"Lake Bell plays a brilliant British writer whose life is a mess and Simon Pegg plays a jaded divorcee on a mistaken-identity date. This movie does all of the great rom-com cliches SO well while keeping its leads weirder than normal. Cannot recommend highly enough." – emilye410147352

11. I Hate Valentine's Day (2009)

IFC Films

Watch on: Netflix US

"It's so funny and heartwarming and just like a classic rom-com, and it stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett, making it like My Big Fat Greek Wedding nostalgia! They have such great chemistry even in these totally different characters." – kaiar

12. Better Off Single (2016)

Gravitas Ventures

Watch on: Netflix UK, Canada, Australia, and more

"It's rare we get to see a romantic comedy that focuses on the guy as the central character, and though he's flawed, I thought the main character was very relatable." – jonathanp48e056052

13. 4th Man Out (2015)

Gravitas Ventures

Watch on: Netflix Japan

"It's about a young guy in a town in upstate New York who comes out on his birthday, and then his three straight friends do their best to get him a boyfriend. It's a great watch, and defies typical LGBT+ stereotypes." – Mary Grace Buckley, Facebook

14. What to Expect When You're Expecting (2012)

"It's my go-to cheer-up film!" – charo2

15. Drinking Buddies (2013)

16. The Other Sister (1999)

Buena Vista Pictures

Watch on: Netflix US

"It's adorable, sweet, and funny, but its comedy is never at the expense of its leading couple, Carla and Dan, who are both mentally disabled. It is one of my all-time favourite love stories and a beautiful coming-of-age story." – ashleyprice

17. TiMER (2009)

Present Pictures

Watch on: Netflix US and more

"It's set in a future or a different universe where (almost) everyone in the world wears a device that counts down to the day they meet their soulmate." – UriEbb

18. After the Ball (2015)

Freestyle Releasing

"It's about a woman in her thirties – you know, the kind that used to be called 'Old Maid' – working in a diner in her hometown in Virginia." – RCIAG

23. Don't Blame the Kid (2016)

Adicta Films

It's an intelligent, funny, and painfully familiar story." – gaelrouge
