The best romance movies on Hulu
Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best romance movies on Hulu as new releases are added, and older movies are phased out.
If Beale Street Could Talk
Lifetime friends Clementine “Tish” Rivers and Alonzo “Fonny” Hunt are looking forward to spending the rest of their lives together. It’s been a struggle for the couple to find an apartment in 1970s Harlem, but a sympathetic landlord offers them the start to their lives together.
The couple’s plans are derailed when Fonny is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. It’s up to Tish and her community to prove Fonny’s innocence and expose the abuses of power fighting against them.
A Nice Girl Like You
Lucy may be a nice girl, but she is sexually inhibited, which ruins her relationship with her boyfriend, Jeff. This happens after she finds porn on his computer, which causes a huge argument. Her sexual life takes a turn after she decides to make a list of new things to try. This adventure starts with a healthy dose of porn watching. Her list takes her on plenty of fun and new adventures as a special new man comes into her life.
The Princess Bride
In this classic 1987 movie, we get to see what at first appears to be a standard story of a princess who falls in love with a simple peasant worker. However, it quickly becomes a funny fantasy movie with cool swordplay and great comedic characters. Yet, it still doesn’t forget the love story at the heart of this tale. It’s one of the best romance movies on Hulu.

Never Been Kissed
In one of her most popular movies, Drew Barrymore shines as a young reporter who wants to research a story about modern high school life. She decides that she looks young enough to go undercover as a high school student. Hijinks begins when she learns that high school life isn’t as great as she remembers it.
Love Potion Number 9
Sandra Bullock is excellent in an early role as a scientist who helps to develop a love potion that actually works. As you might expect, the consequences of making such a potion get out of control quickly. Can she find love without the potion with her real love interest, her team member played by Tate Donovan? Watch to find out.
This 2020 Hulu original movie combines romantic comedy with a holiday film. Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis play a couple, and they go to Davis’ parents for the holidays. The problem? Davis hasn’t yet told her parents that she is gay.
The result is a funny, but at the same time poignant, look at how it’s still hard for many gay people to reveal themselves to their family and friends, and how those fears could affect those around them.
Sex and the City: The Movie
The first of two movies based on the hit HBO sitcom is by far the best. Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha continue to live truly amazing (some might say fantasy) lives in New York City, as they navigate through new and old relationships. It’s a great mix of comedy and drama, and it’s worth your time even if you have never seen the series.
La La Land
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are excellent in this modern-day musical romantic film. She plays an actor, and he plays a jazz musician in Los Angeles. Both are trying for their big break, and while trying to find fame, they also find each other. This is one of the best romance movies on Hulu.
Some Kind of Wonderful
This is definitely one of the best romance movies on Hulu. It’s also a classic film written by the man who defined teen movies in the 1980s, John Hughes. Eric Stoltz plays a boy who wants to date the popular girl, played by Lea Thompson, at his school. He gets some assistance from his best friend, played by Mary Stuart Masterson, who secretly has a crush on him. What will happen in this romantic teen triangle?
She’s Out Of My League
Have you ever been told that the person you would like to date is “out of your league”? This movie is for you, as a young average looking man manages to get into a romance with a beautiful woman that many would think would never be interested in him.
Here are a few more romance movies on Hulu that didn’t make our list:
- The Age of Adaline — Blake Lively plays a woman who stopped aging several hundred years ago but is still looking for love.
- Sixteen Candles — Here’s perhaps the best teen romantic comedy of the 1980s, as a girl tries to celebrate her 16th birthday by finding love.
-  Days of Summer — A man falls in love with a woman, even though he knows this relationship will almost certainly end in sadness.
- The Last of the Mohicans — This pre-Revolution War look at frontier America is really just an excuse for a romantic story.
- We Broke Up — A couple decides to break up just before both are supposed to attend a wedding.
