Pick up some flowers and chocolates, because these are the best romance movies on Netflix Instant, ranked from best to worst by movie lovers. This list of Netflix romance movies will have even the most jaded and cynical viewer swooning before long. From contemporary relationship dramas to timeless love stories, the romance movies streaming on Netflix offer something for anyone. 

Shakespeare gives his advice on love in Joss Whedon’s handling of Much Ado About Nothing, but you can also see if the Bard heeds his own words in Shakespeare in Love. If that doesn’t do it for you, how about falling in love with a dance instructor in Dirty Dancing? Or a sparkly vampire in Twilight 

Among the best romantic movies on Netflix are classics like Three Coins in a Fountain, A Star is Born, and Roman Holiday, all of which prove that love was messy even back when every film was black and white.

But will these classics rise to the top of this list? That depends on how you vote. Let us know which Netflix romances you're wildly in love with by voting up your favorites below. And if there are any great streaming love stories not on this list, go ahead and add them!
