To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a Netflix original movie based on the 2014 young adult novel of the same name.

In case you haven't seen it yet, the movie is an incredibly watchable rom-com filled with all of the high school cliches and movie montages we've come to expect from teen romance movies.

The movie follows high schooler Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) after her secret love letters are mailed out to her crushes against her will.

The movie also features Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) – a.k.a the internet's boyfriend.

He's Just Not That Into You is yet another romantic comedy based on a book.

The movie, which features Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston to name a few, looks at the challenges of reading or misreading human behaviour – particularly in relationships and dating.

Relatable, right?

Always Be My Maybe is the Netflix original that's been dubbed the modern day When Harry Met Sally.

The film, starring Ali Wong as Sasha and Randall Park as Marcus, follows two childhood friends and one-time college lovers who reconnect later in life.

As their feelings for each other return and grow after meeting again as adults, the pair come across a number of obstacles.

One of those obstacles? KEANU. REEVES.

The much-loved actor famously played himself in the hilarious rom-com. (Well, a heightened caricature of himself at least...)

Love Actually

OK.

We know what you're going to say.

Yes, Love Actually is technically a Christmas movie. No, we're not going to stop watching it outside of December.

We’ve watched it every year since its 2003 release, sometimes more than once, sometimes… multiple times, but even after all this time, it's still SO GOOD.

Featuring an incredible ensemble cast and plenty of hilarious moments, Love Actually is available to watch on Stan all year round. (Seriously, get on it.)

Someone Great

Someone Great, starring Jane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez and Straight Outta Compton’s Lakeith Stanfield, tackles love, loss and female friendship.

Here's a quick rundown of the plot:

When Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) is offered her dream job as a music journalist in San Francisco, her boyfriend of nine years ends their relationship.

Before leaving New York City for her new job, Jenny enjoys one last adventure with her two best friends, as she attempts to reconnect with who she was before the relationship that defined much of her twenties.

Although Someone Great is technically a bit of a break up movie, it's definitely a much watch.

How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Do we need to say anything else?

How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days follows Angie Anderson (Kate Hudson), who's assigned to write an article on, you guessed it, how to lose a guy in 10 days.

Funnily enough, when Angie sets her sights on a man, her plan... doesn't exactly go well.

In fact, advertising executive Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) has his own plan to make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days.

Love, Rosie

Based on Cecelia Ahern's bestselling novel, Love, Rosie, follows childhood best friends Rosie and Alex.

For years, Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) have wondered whether there could be something more than friendship between them.

Over the years, the pair kept getting separated – but fate just keeps bringing them back together.

Failure to Launch

Yep, we've included yet another Matthew McConaughey movie. (Sorry).

Failure to Launch follows Tripp (Matthew McConaughey) – a 35-year-old bachelor who is still living with his parents.

Frustrated with his, ahem, failure to launch, Tripp's parents hire interventionist Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker), in the hopes of changing his life.

Along the way, however, the intervention doesn't exactly goes as planned.
