7 Bros (2022)

2022’s Bros is another LGBTQ+ romance movie streaming on Prime Video, and Bros truly deserves to be a hit despite its box office flop. Directed by Nicholas Stoller, the movie follows Bobby (Billy Eichner) and Aaron (Luke Macfarlane) as they reluctantly develop feelings for one another — a development that threatens their beloved “freedom.” So begins a comical narrative that sees them dealing with their commitment issues, all while an eclectic soundtrack plays and numerous A-listers cameo. Bros is an all-around fun time, and its ending is equal parts realistic and satisfying.

6 Chemical Hearts (2020)

Those looking for more of Lili Reinhart after Riverdale‘s series finale should check out Chemical Hearts on Prime Video — though no one should go into this particular romance movie looking for a cookie-cutter happy ending. The film sees Reinhart starring opposite Austin Abrams. The two play Grace Town and Henry Page, and their teenage characters fall head over heels for one another. Unfortunately, like most high school romances, things don’t play out as expected. Chemical Hearts showcases stellar performances from both its leads, along with a number of scenes that will leave viewers misty-eyed before the movie is through.

5 Twilight (2008)

Those looking for a more fantastical story can relive the hype of 2008’s Twilight, a supernatural romance based on Stephenie Meyer’s book of the same name. Most people have heard of Twilight by now, but the film follows vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) as he develops feelings for the new girl in town, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). Cheesy and occasionally funny without meaning to be, Twilight is by no means a masterpiece within the romance genre. However, it’s fun and delivers on the intense feelings of its leads. There’s a reason the movie became so popular, spawning multiple sequels and building a fanbase that still exists over a decade later.

4 Ticket To Paradise (2022)

Those searching for a lighthearted romance movie on Prime Video should look no further than 2022’s Ticket to Paradise, which combines an A+ cast and a stunning setting to stellar effect. Starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts — and yes, that duo is enough reason to check this out — the film follows two divorced parents as they travel to Bali to stop their daughter from making a huge mistake in the name of love. Naturally, this stirs up all kinds of feelings between the two characters, delivering a second-chance romance that will leave even the most hard-hearted viewer in their feelings by Ticket to Paradise‘s ending.

3 Somebody I Used To Know (2023)

Somebody That i Used To Know Movie

A movie that’s a bit heavier than the standard rom-com, 2023’s Somebody I Used to Know is still worth the watch, if only for Alison Brie’s and Jay Ellis’ performances. They play Ally and Sean, two exes who have seemingly moved on from one another — though that’s quickly called into question when Ally returns to her hometown and they reunite. The fact that Sean is engaged complicates matters, raising all kinds of difficult questions for Ally. These don’t lead where viewers might expect, with Somebody I Used to Know turning some of the genre’s most problematic tropes on their heads in favor of a more modern and surprising conclusion.

2 Four Weddings And A Funeral (1994)

The oldest romance movie on this list, Four Weddings and a Funeral holds up as a solid viewing experience nearly three decades after its debut. Streaming on Prime Video, the film follows the English Charles (Hugh Grant) as he courts an American named Carrie (Andie MacDowell), who he continues to run into at weddings and eventually a funeral. The performances from Grant and MacDowell are enough reason to give this a watch, but the movie’s focus on fate is also a compelling one that will leave viewers feeling uplifted.

1 The Wedding Singer (1998)

Adam Sandler singing in The Wedding Singer

The Wedding Singer is a classic rom-com movie, and it’s among the most well-known ones streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Starring Adam Sandler as Robbie Hart and Drew Barrymore as Julia Sullivan, this movie is worth watching for its star power alone. Of course, the fun plot, which sees Robbie and Julia realizing they’re engaged to the wrong people — conveniently at the same time they meet one another — adds to the viewing experience. The Wedding Singer is one of those romance movies that remains entertaining no matters how many times viewers have seen it. Perhaps that’s why its popularity has lasted for so many years.
