Love is in the air on Netflix. If you like romance and comedy—and who doesn’t?—you’ll want to take a close look at this list of the best romantic comedies streaming on Netflix, ranked by movie fans like you. Netflix has a large collection of romantic comedies available, perfect for binge watching on a Saturday night when you just don't feel like going out. These Netflix rom coms are especially great to watch if you've just gotten out of a relationship, as they'll give you hope for love in the future.

Ranging from the classic pairing of Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in the fast-talking His Girl Friday to the stuttering antics of Diane Keaton and Woody Allen in Annie Hall, this Netflix romantic comedy list contains some of the best ever made. 

And, some of the most memorable. Who could forget Cher slapping Nicolas Cage (playing a romantic lead with one wooden hand, no less) and telling him to “Snap out of it!” in Moonstruck. Or Bill Murray reliving the same day over and over in Groundhog Day until he gets it right… and gets the girl. And then there are the classic romantic comedies on Netflix, How To Marry A MillionaireBreakfast at Tiffany's and the utterly charming Sabrina (actually Netflix has the original and the surprisingly good remake.)

So, whether you’re just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her like Julia Roberts in Notting Hill or if you’re more like the bumbling Renee Zellweger in Bridget Jones' Diary you’ll want to make yourself heard by voting on this list of Netflix romantic comedies. Time to get out the Kleenex and the Haagen Dazs, and start binging!
