We’re here to make your choice a little bit easier. If rom-coms are the food for your soul, then you need to watch these Netflix original movies that will positively melt your heart.
1.SET IT UP
This movie stars Zoey Deutch, Lucy Liu, Glen Powell, Taye Diggs and Pete Davidson. The premise is like an office version of Lindsay Lohan’s Parent Trap. If you haven’t seen that, you need to watch that too. Two secretaries set up their bosses to make their lives easier in the office. That’s the one line summary of the entire movie. And it is adorable. There’s some phenomenal acting happening, great comic timing and enough doses of ‘awww’ to make it a bright and funny rom-com that is a little unconventional but checks all the boxes in the list. The chemistry of the lead pair speaks for itself in this picture.

Do you recognize this beautiful man? He seems kind of familiar, doesn’t he? I’ll give you a hint. ‘The Red Wedding‘. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you know who this man is. Yes, Rob Stark has risen from the dead and he has chosen to party in Ibiza. If you don’t understand, well, what are you even doing? Go watch Game of Thrones before the next season comes out. Ibiza is more for people who are not into the High School Scene. By the title, you can see that it is of course centred in Ibiza. Three working women decide to go to Ibiza on a vacation when one of them has to finish up a business deal there. And so begins a series of crazy adventures with drugs, DJ’s, booze, and cannabis. It’s a really fun watch and the heroine, Gillian Jacobs, keeps reminding you of Anne Hathaway. It’s an adult rom-com made more delicious by the presence of Richard Madden.
