7;s Day and have a few laughs? Here are 10 great romantic comedies you can enjoy together, whether you subscribe to Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, or Disney +.

Emma

Jane Austen’s classic novel has been adapted multiple times, but the scintillating and witty 1996 version starring Gwyneth Paltrow is a highlight. Paltrow plays the meddlesome Emma Woodhouse, who believes she can create perfect romantic matches for anyone but herself. Of course she doesn’t realize that her old friend and neighbor Mr. Knightley (Jeremy Northam) is very much in love with her.

Emma streams on HBO Max ($ 14.99 per month).

The five-year engagement

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt play a couple who start out happy and engaged, but their relationship is put to the test as different life circumstances continue to delay their planned wedding.

The incredible Jessica James

Comedian Jessica Williams gets a stellar showcase in this indie rom com about an aspiring playwright who reluctantly finds romance with a mopey app designer (Chris O’Dowd).

Palm Springs

The well-known sci-fi concept of the time loop is given a romantic twist in this entertainingly cynical comedy. Andy Samberg plays a slacker who relives the day of his friends’ wedding over and over again. When he accidentally lures the bride’s sister (Cristin Milioti) into a trap with him, they fall for each other as they try to figure out how to escape the endlessly repeating day.

Plus one

Tired of dating, two best friends (played by Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) agree that they are each other’s plus points at year-long weddings.

Save face

Before you directed Netflix hit Half of itfilmmaker Alice Wu made her debut with this groundbreaking romantic comedy about an Asian-American lesbian couple, played by Michelle Krusiec and Vivian Chen.

Upright

The fluidity of sexuality is cleverly deconstructed in this sharply written comedy about a gay man (writer-director James Sweeney) who wonders if he might be straight. Todd and Rory (Katie Findlay) seem to be a perfect match, with similar cynical, sardonic perspectives on life, and they won’t let a trifle like Todd’s sexuality get in the way of their happiness.

Upright streams on Netflix ($ 8.99 + per month).

10 things I hate about you

A loose adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Taming the shrew, this teen rom-com stars Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik as sisters with very different views on dating, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Heath Ledger as their very different suitors. The popular Bianca (Oleynik) and the moody Kat (Stiles) end up finding just the right romances, even if they don’t see them coming at first.

10 things I hate about you streams on Disney + ($ 6.99 per month or $ 69.99 per year).

13 on the way to the 30

A 13-year-old girl wishes she were an adult and wakes up inside Jennifer Garner’s body. Suddenly 30, Jenna (Garner) discovers she’s skipped 17 years of her life, and her dorky boyfriend is now played by Mark Ruffalo. Jenna is still a teenager at heart, while her friend certainly isn’t, but the uncomfortable intergenerational romance works like a sweet way for young Jenna to learn to appreciate what’s in store for her all the time.
