5 Underrated Romantic Comedies That Are Perfect for Date Night

Let me set the scene: It’s a cool rainy night and you and your significant other are looking for something to do. Obviously it’s the perfect evening for a cuddle sesh and a fantastic rom com. Everyone has their “go to” selection for these types of movies but here are a few you should definitely check out if you have not seen them.

  1. “Roman Holiday”

This movie is my tried and true for romantic movies. It’s an oldie but a goodie, like real old. As in the movie is in black and white. Don’t let the release date scare you because this movie is one of the best for a fantastic love story.


  1. “You’ve Got Mail”

This 90’s classic is beyond charming. It’s about finding love over the internet while using AOL chat. Remember that? Me neither.  Watching romance unfold over the dated technology is another fun aspect about this film which makes it entertaining.


  1. “Silver Linings Playbook”

If you haven’t seen this film yet that stop what you’re doing and set up a date night ASAP. This film is wonderful and takes a peek at what it’s like to struggle with bipolar and other mental illnesses. I’m sure once you watch it, the movie will become one of your favorite picks.


  1. “About Time”

This quirky British film explores the topics of time travel and falling in love. It’s a low-key movie that is truly a hidden gem. It stars Rachel McAdams and Domnhall Gleeson.

  1. “Speed”

Okay, so this movie does not fit the “romantic comedy” bill, but the acting is so cheesy that you might laugh anyway. It is however, insanely entertaining and has its romantic moments. It features Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and a bus with a bomb on it. You’ll enjoy it for sure.
