1. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
R | 122 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
Story: After a stint in a mental hospital, former teacher Pat Solitano returns to his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get even more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with her own problems.
Why to watch: I can definitely say that this is the best romantic comedy ever made with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro doing exceptionally well.

2. The Notebook (2004)
PG-13 | 123 min | Drama, Romance
Story: A poor but ambitious young man (Ryan Gosling) falls in love with a rich girl (Rachel McAdams), who gives him freedom, but they soon fall apart due to social differences.
Why to watch: I like every kind of movie. From sci-fi to thriller, fantasy to romance. I’ve seen Gone with the Wind because people say it’s the best love story ever, as well as Titanic, but I think The Notebook beats them. This is the best love story I’ve ever seen. It tells a great story, with great actors, and great scenery. This can be related to everyone, because everyone knows, you just can’t forget your first love (or your true love.) In love, separated by outsiders, and finally together goes. There’s more to it, and it makes it more enjoyable.
Director: Nick Cassavetes | Stars: Gena Rowlands, James Garner, Rachel McAdams, Ryan Gosling

3. Passengers(I) (2016)
PG-13 | 116 min | Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi
Story: A passenger wakes up 90 years early due to a malfunction in a sleeping pod on a spacecraft en route to a distant colony planet.
Why to Watch: If you have an imagination, this movie will hit you hard. Waking up in space in the middle of a journey that ends when you die. How smart you are, not how brave or cool you are. It’s almost like getting a death sentence for accidentally doing something normal. And amazing actors, director and crew! The emotion, romance, drama just excellent. A recommendation: Watch it on Netflix.
Director: Morten Tyldum | Stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne
Votes: 406,278 | Gross: $100.01M
4. A Star Is Born (2018)
R | 136 min | Drama, Music, Romance
A musician helps a young singer find fame as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral.
Why to watch: A movie that takes you to another world full of emotions. Lady Gaga is an amazing actress with amazing acting skills! The songs are pure art and the sound will give you chills and make you cry! I don’t have to talk about the legendary Bradley Cooper!! This is one of the best movies of 2018 and one of the best musical and romantic movie ever.
Director: Bradley Cooper | Stars: Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott, Greg Grunberg
Votes: 383,958 | Gross: $215.29M
5. Pride & Prejudice (2005)
PG | 129 min | Drama, Romance
Story: Sparks fly when the spirit of Elizabeth Bennet meets the single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy was reluctant to meet a woman at the bottom of his class. Can everyone overcome pride and prejudice?
Why to watch: This little gem of a film is extremely well written, a delight from start to finish, and perfectly cast; Especially the 2 leads Keira Knightley and Matthew McFadyen were the best. McFadyen makes the character of Darcy more sympathetic than his previous portrayals. Also, the main actors are about the same age as Lizzie and Darcy in the book. Although Austin purists criticize the editing and condensing of the book for this screen adaptation, the essence of the classic remains intact. I highly recommend this film one of the best romantic movies on Netflix and in Box office ever.
