Best romantic comedies on Netflix (Updated in September 2018)

Best romantic comedies - If you've been looking for romcoms to binge on Netflix this coming month, look no further! Our list covers the best the streaming platform has to offer.
UPDATED SEP 19, 2018

Best romantic comedies on Netflix (Updated in September 2018): Based on author Jenny Han's 2014 best-selling young adult romance novel, Netflix's 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' is set to premiere on the streaming platform this coming August 17. The trailer for the romcom seemed to indicate that that the Susan Johnson-directed venture will do justice to the highly popular novel, and this should come as little surprise considering the effort that went in to secure the movie rights in the first place. Will Smith's Overlook Entertainment won that particular battle and Sofia Alvarez (Man Seeking Woman) was brought on board to adapt the book to the screen, and soon enough, it may just prove to be one of the sleeper hits of the year.

'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' sees Netflix continue on its quest to stock up its library with more original content — it recently committed $6 billion with the view of financing 470 original TV shows and movies — and get a leg up on its competitors. But while you wait for the movie's release, the streaming giant also boasts of a repertoire of quite a few amazing romcoms, some original, that you can watch to bide your time. We've rounded up 10 of the best romanctic comedies on Netflix (in no particular order) to make your task a little easier for you.

#10 Love Actually 

No one expected 'Love Actually' to make such a large impact in the box office, but the Christmas-themed romantic comedy went on to earn $245 million on a $45 million budget; quite the respectable sum for 2003. Boasting a star-packed ensemble on impossibly good-looking actors and actresses, the prediction was that the Richard Curtis-directed movie was a little too ambitious for its own good but instead it proved to be, in the words of Variety's Todd McCarthy, "a doggedly cheery confection."

The comedy is set five weeks before Christmas and is played out in a weekly countdown until the holiday. Its unique premise involves exploration of the different aspects of love as shown through ten separate stories involving a wide variety of individuals, many of whom are later shown to be interlinked to one another as the story progresses. The opinion on 'Love Actually' has changed quite a bit over the years, with many now regarding it as a modern-day Christmas classic.
