It’s the summer of love and Netflix proves it. Just when we thought Hollywood had lost its love spell, Netflix jumps in and churns out a wide selection of summer romance films that are sure to get your heart melting.
Here’s a list of summer rom-coms — both now playing and coming soon — for your viewing enjoyment:
Set It Up: In desperate need of a break from the office, two corporate executive assistants team up to trick their bosses into falling in love. Now don’t go getting any ideas. But this one’s really cute and currently streaming. The film stars Zoey Deutch, Lucy Liu, Glen Powell and Taye Diggs.
Alex Strangelove: Alex Truelove (Daniel Doheny) is a high school senior with a wonderful girlfriend, Claire (Madeline Weinstein). Things get complicated when he develops feelings for Elliot (Antonio Marziale), a handsome and charming gay teen.
Like Father (Aug. 3): A young workaholic executive (Kristen Bell) is left at the altar, but decides to go on her Caribbean honeymoon cruise anyway. The last person she expected to join her on this adventure is her estranged and equally workaholic father (Kelsey Grammer). Together, they depart on a soul-searching journey complete with umbrella-clad cocktails. Expect a lot of laughs given the cast, including comedian Seth Rogen.
Sierra Burgess is a Loser (Sept. 7): A high school student named Sierra Burgess (Shannon Purser) starts getting text messages from a good looking guy (Noah Centineo), but sadly realizes he’s mistaking her for Veronica, her popular but unkind classmate. Sierra somehow convinces Veronica to stand in for her in video chats.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (Aug. 17): When Lara Jean’s (Lana Condor) secret love letters to every boy she’s ever fallen in love with are mysteriously mailed out, her life goes out of control. Yikes! Can you imagine if your love letters were mailed out to your crushes? Um, #thanksbutnothanks
