Rom-com movies on Netflix Canada


50 First Dates (2004)

After meeting Lucy, who has short-term memory loss, womanizer Henry tries to woo her every single day.

50 First Dates is one of my favourite Adam Sandler movies, and it’s absolutely adorable.

It’s also set in Oahu, so it’s a nice little movie escape if you want to travel while sitting on your couch!

Friends with Benefits (2011)

Jamie, a headhunter, recruits Dylan to work as an art director at GQ in New York City.

Fed up with relationships, they decide to become friends with benefits, and things get complicated.

Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake star in this one, and they’re great together!

Just Go With It (2011)

A plastic surgeon invites his assistant and her children to join him and his young girlfriend on a trip to Hawaii, and things get complicated.

I adore both Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, and they’re great together in Just Go With It!

He’s Just Not That into You (2009)

He’s Just Not That into You is one of those movies you watch at least once a year.

I Lost Interest in My University Major

Or maybe it’s just a movie I watch at least once a year.

Anyway, it’s a cute rom com that follows several different people and their love (or heartbreak) stories, and they all connect together somehow.

It’s a star-studded cast with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and so many other awesome actors and actresses.

New Year’s Eve is another similar movie on Netflix, but I only watch that one around New Year’s Eve.

Letters to Juliet (2010)

Sophie is an aspiring writer who travels to Italy with her fiancé, and discovers a wall of heartbroken letters dedicated to Shakespeare’s tragic heroine, Juliet Capulet.

She writes back to one of the letters from 1957 and ends up meeting Claire, who sets out to find her long-lost lover along with her disapproving grandson.

Letters to Juliet is a super cute movie, especially if you’re big on travel.

Amanda Seyfried also plays the main character!

17 Again (2009)

Mike O’Donnell gave up his dream of becoming a basketball star to marry his high school sweetheart and raise their child, but he regrets his life choices as a middle-aged man.

One day his wish to become 17 again gets granted, and he has a chance to relive his youth again and redo the choices he made.

If you haven’t already seen this movie, Zac Efron plays the young Mike O’Donnell!

Think Like a Man (2012 & 2014)

I watched Think Like a Man when it came out in theatres back then and loved it.

It’s a romantic comedy based on Steve Harvey’s book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man.

The movie follows four couples, with each of the women reading Steve Harvey’s book.

As the women start applying Harvey’s teachings into their own relationships, the men try to turn the tables using the same teachings.

There’s also a sequel available on Netflix, Think Like a Man Too!

Burlesque (2010)

Ali leaves her job as a waitress to pursue a career on stage, and she ends up becoming a lead dancer and singer in a club.

Cher and Christina Aguilera are amazing in Burlesque – it’s one of my family’s favourite movies!

Nappily Ever After (2018)

Violet lives a seemingly perfect life, with a great job, great boyfriend, and great hair.

After an incident at the hair salon, she realizes her life wasn’t so perfect after all, and she embarks on a journey of self-discovery.

Nappily Ever After is a happy, feel-good rom com that’s more about self-love than romantic love.

1 film available on Netflix, watch the trailer

Emma (2020)

Emma is a beautiful, spoiled rich girl who loves playing matchmaker with her friends, and her meddling leads her to find her own romance.

Anya Taylor-Joy from Queen’s Gambit (one of the most popular shows on Netflix) plays the role of Emma!

Emma is actually based on a Jane Austen novel of the same name – the same author as Pride and Prejudice.

Friendship comedy movies on Netflix Canada


Bridesmaids (2011)

Bridesmaids is one of those classic comedies that never gets old.

Annie is asked by her best friend Lillian to be her maid of honour, but it all turns into a disaster when she gets into a feud with one of the other bridesmaids.

If you like this movie, you’ll also enjoy Wine Country, which is also on Netflix!

Someone Great (2019)

Although Someone Great is a rom com, I’d say it’s more about love in friendships than romantic love.

After Jenny and her long-term boyfriend break up, she and her two best friends go on one last adventure around New York City together before she leaves for her dream job in San Francisco.

The soundtrack is great, the cast is great, the storyline is great – everything about this movie is great.

It’s now one of my favourite rom coms of all-time – I think I watched it 3 times in the same week the first time I saw it!

Definitely one of the best Netflix Original movies available on Netflix Canada.

Like a Boss (2020)

Like a Boss is the ultimate girl power movie, and it’s also absolutely hilarious.

BFFs Mel and Mia run a small cosmetics company together, but when a large company offers to buy them out, their friendship gets tested.

Seriously Single (2020)

Dineo craves a committed relationship and and Noni loves the single life, and they both go on a journey of self-discovery.

Seriously Single is sort of like a rom-com, but it’s ultimately about self-love and friendship.

It’s a super cute movie that’ll give you the good feels.

Raunchy comedy movies on Netflix Canada


The House Bunny (2008)

A former Playboy Bunny teaches an awkward group of sorority girls about how to make boys like them.

It’s so good and absolutely hilarious.

Anna Faris and Emma Stone both star in The House Bunny, and so does Hugh Hefner and the lead singer of The All-American Rejects, Tyson Ritter!

We’re the Millers (2013)

David, a drug dealer, is forced by his boss to smuggle drugs from Mexico.

He ends up hiring a stripper, petty thief, and teenage neighbour to play his fake family and help him smuggle the drugs.

I remember watching We’re the Millers in theatres when it came out and thought it was absolutely hilarious.

Plus, it has Jennifer Aniston in it!

Horrible Bosses (2011 & 2014)

Nick, Dale, and Kurt all hate their horrible bosses, and after a drunken night out, decide to hire an assassin to murder them.

Of course, things don’t go as planned – quite horribly actually.

This movie is absolutely hilarious, and there’s also a sequel you can watch on Netflix!

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, and Jennifer Aniston star in both movies.

Good Boys (2019)

After 12-year-old Max gets invited to his first kissing party, he enlists his two best friends to skip school so they can learn how to kiss.

I didn’t have any expectations for Good Boys, but I literally could not stop laughing throughout the entire movie.

It’s just so ridiculous and hilarious to watch their adventure.

Although it’s a movie about 12-year-old boys, it’s definitely not for kids to watch.

Seth Rogen is also one of the executive producers for the film!

Fantasy comedy movies on Netflix Canada


Click (2006)

If you’re in for laughs and tears, then you should definitely watch Click.

Adam Sandler plays a workaholic architect who comes across a mysterious remote that lets him rewind and fast-forward parts of his life.

Comedy drama movies on Netflix Canada


King of Staten Island (2020)

King of Staten Island is loosely based on Pete Davidson’s life growing up in Staten Island, including losing his father during 9/11 and entering the world of stand-up comedy.

It’s not the most wholesome movie, but it’s definitely inspiring.

If you like King of Staten Island, you might also like Awkwafina is Nora from Queens, a show based on comedian Awkwafina’s beginnings, which you can stream on Crave.

Destiny works as a stripper to make ends meet, taking care of her daughter and grandmother.

She meets Ramona, a veteran exotic dancer, who shows her how to swindle money from rich clients.

Hustlers is based on a true story that’s actually very fascinating!

Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, and Cardi B are all part of the cast.

Fatherhood (2021)

Fatherhood is based on a true story of a father who raises his daughter alone after his wife dies immediately after childbirth.

Have a tissue box ready ’cause it’s an emotional one.

Kevin Hart stars as the dad, and he’s actually pretty good in a drama role – he also stars in a drama series called True Story on Netflix.

The New Romantic (2018)

After a journalism student’s column about her love life in the school newspaper gets cancelled, she becomes a sugar baby and starts writing about her experience.

The New Romantic is a cute romantic comedy-drama, and Camila Mendes (Veronica from Riverdale, also on Netflix) also stars in it!
