Romance movies aren't just for girls' nights, nor should they only be relegated to the first half of February. Seriously, can you think of a time when rewatching The Notebook for the millionth time isn't appropriate? Didn't think so! No matter the season, the movie night crowd, or your relationship status, there's often nothing more comforting than curling up on the couch with a heartfelt movie about two people falling in love against all odds (or because of them). They're hopeful, dreamy, and usually pretty sexy—what more could you ask for in a film?
Fortunately for us all, 2021's romance movie offerings are nothing short of a lovefest. If there's anything we've learned in the last year, it's the importance of our relationships with our loved ones, and the next year's worth of new releases will definitely reflect that. Expect to see the final installment of a beloved trilogy, new adaptations of tried-and-true love stories, and plenty of original stories that promise to tug on your heartstrings (if not also send you sobbing your way through a Kleenex box). Here are the best romance movies on the schedule for 2021 so far.
Release Date: August 27
Starring: Addison Rae, Tanner Buchanan, Myra Molloy, Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Rachael Leigh Cook
Yes, you read that cast correctly. TikTok star Addison Rae will be making her acting debut in the remake of the 1999 film, She's All That. There isn't a full trailer released yet, but you can expect similar-ish vibes as the original in all of its 2021 glory.
