Crazy Rich Asians
Everyone knows meeting the parents for the first time can be a bit intense. But what happens when you find out that your future in-laws come from one of the wealthiest families in Singapore? In this global box office smash, Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu) flies to Singapore with her long-term boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) for a friend’s wedding and comes to realise exactly what she’s signed up for.
As Good as It Gets
This Oscar-winning Sony Pictures classic features a standout performance from Jack Nicholson as grumpy, aggravated New York novelist Melvin. He’s rude and abrupt to everyone, from neighbours to fans to staff at his favourite restaurant, but – this being a rom-com – he slowly softens, helped along the way by a waitress (Helen Hunt) and a little dog called Verdell.
Pssst… if dogs are the way to your heart, check out some more adorable pooches here!
My Best Friend’s Wedding
What happens when your back-up marriage gets ruined? Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts) had plans to marry her childhood best friend Michael (Dermot Mulroey) if neither had married before they turned 28. When Michael announces he’s engaged to Kimberley (Cameron Diaz) a few days before Julianne’s 28th birthday, she starts to rethink their friendship… did she always want more? If you’re a hopeless romantic or you fancy some sneaky sabotage, this Sony Pictures film could be one for you.
A tear-jerking modern classic of the genre starring Ryan Gosling and Rachael McAdams in a pairing with incredible, lightning chemistry. After a few years away at war and countless letters that failed to reach Allie, Gosling’s character returns to find his love is engaged to another man, but he refuses to give up hope. Expect rain, tears and a touch of heartbreak.
Sleepless in Seattle
In this classic Nora Ephron romantic comedy, widowed Sam (Tom Hanks) is set up by his son Jonah (Ross Malinger) on a talk radio station where he reluctantly talks about his feelings. Across the country in Baltimore, journalist Annie (Meg Ryan) hears Sam and instantly falls in love despite her engagement to another man. Risking it all, Annie writes to Sam asking to meet on Valentine’s Day in New York.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Available on Netflix, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is an adaptation of the popular novel by Korean-American author Jenny Han. Lara (Lana Condor) pens letters to her crushes that – gasp! – unintentionally end up in the hands of the people they’re about, from her sister’s boyfriend to the most popular boy in school. This is a fun-filled watch for those who like a heart-warming tale.
Crazy Stupid Love
If Crazy Rich Asians sparked your interest for all things crazy, then why not try Crazy Stupid Love? Following three generations’ intertwining love stories, there is something here for everyone. Firmly on the ‘com’ side of rom-com, watch this movie for one of the most toe-curling twists in cinema history. Comes complete with a heavyweight cast of Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Julianne Moore and Ryan Gosling.
When Harry Met Sally…
This story follows Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally’s (Meg Ryan) friendship over 12 years. After late night phone calls, dinners and coffees discussing their failing love lives, the pair debate whether they can just be friends as underlying feelings begin to develop.
