On Valentine’s Day, some couples might prefer to stay home. If this sounds like you, then great news—you have many Valentine’s Day date ideas to choose from! And one especially relaxing choice is to watch a movie or two.
It’s also easy to watch movies at home thanks to commonplace streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu. Below, find five recommendations for iconic Valentine’s Day movies currently available on the latter platform.
1. Palm Springs (2020)
If you’re in the mood for a sci-fiction romantic comedy, then Palm Springs might be the perfect Valentine’s Day watch.

Plus One is an easy-going romantic comedy. Longtime friends Ben (Jack Quaid) and Alice (Maya Erskine) have plenty of mutual friends who are getting married.

If you and your Valentine’s date want to watch a light-hearted romantic comedy story following two friends, Plus One might be just what you’re looking for.
3. Love, Simon (2018)

Throughout the movie, Simon contends with finding confidence, acceptance, and a loving relationship amidst these struggles.
4. No Strings Attached (2011)
No Strings Attached is a movie about a man and a woman who aren’t quite in a relationship but are certainly no strangers to one another. Emma (Natalie Portman) is a doctor who has a busy schedule. Adam (Ashton Kutcher) is a man who is tired of feeling pressured by women who want him to commit to monogamous relationships. After Adam meets Emma, he’s grateful to finally meet a woman who isn’t interested in a fully committed relationship. Their dynamic makes No Strings Attached a sassy movie to watch while snuggling up with your Valentine’s date.
5. Dirty Dancing (1987)
Dirty Dancing is a classic 1980’s romantic movie with some iconic dance scenes. Baby (Jennifer Gray) goes to a resort and bonds with dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze). After helping Johnny’s dance partner and dancing with Johnny, Baby gets in some trouble with her father and discovers what she wants to do with her life. Although Dirty Dancing is an older movie, it’s a go-to choice for people of all ages who are in the mood to watch a romantic story.
