Naturally, Variety has you covered with a list of the 35 best feel-good romantic comedies streaming now on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Max and Disney Plus.
Whether you’re paired up with your significant other or a glass of wine, these rom-coms are sure to make you happy-cry, blush and sigh with glee.

If you’re looking for romantic stories with underrepresented leads, opt for the subtle and charming LGBTQ+ coming-of-age romance movie “The Half of It” or the boisterously hilarious “The Lovebirds,” starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani.
For romance with a side of fantasy, opt for the iconic cult classic “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” with Michael Cera playing the titular role. If you’re nostalgic for your childhood, watch Jennifer Garner-led “13 Going on 30” or the 2019 live-action “Aladdin.”
