The Best Romantic Movies to Watch on Valentine’s Day on Netflix, Hulu, Disney Plus, and Amazon Prime Video


With closures in place, fancy restaurants closed for the pandemic, and inclement weather delaying all those bouquets of flowers that will be delivered to your doorstep, you’d think Valentine’s Day would be canceled. But no ! Like everything else over the past 11 months, we screamed and cried for a few days before regaining a cool head and figuring out a way to fix it. And for Valentine’s Day, we’re just planning to stay home and watch some of our favorite romantic comedies and dramas.

Forget going to the movies to see the last Hollywood shlock; make your V-Day viewing in the privacy and security of your home. There are plenty of romantic movies and shows to stream through the major streaming services – Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney + – and we’ve sorted their catalogs to choose the best ones to watch.
