10 Super-Mushy Films to Watch On Date Night!

Or 'solo-pyjamas' night. Whatever floats yo boat.

#10 Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom

Three fun adventures + two precocious children that are weirdly in love with each other at age 12 + one Wes Anderson = The Perfect Saturday Night.

#9 Marley & Me

Marley & Me

If you're a dog lover, this film will make you erupt fountain-style tears and make numerous calls to long-forgotten relatives about how much you love them. If not, you'll have a pleasant evening with a mild moment of heartbreak.

#8 A Walk To Remember

A Walk To Remember

The ultimate Rom-Com—without the com. HE might utterly hate it, throw up his nachos and pretend to get a phone call. But hold him down—he should know what love is. Crying Bonus: Cancer.

#7 Love, Actually

Love, Actually

Noone does awww-y stuff like Hugh Grant—throw in every other British actor in the BBC universe with lots of little mini-stories peppered with endless goop, and you have a total corn-popper at your disposal.

#6 As Good As It Gets

As Good As It Gets

Featuring Helen Hunt as bad*ss single mom and Jack Nicholson as the only character he's played in the last two decades—himself. But grumpy old man whose heart only softens for tough cookie world-is-on-my-shoulders waitress? Yes, please!


#5 Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge


Born In India? You've seen this. Have an Indian Friend? You've seen this. Asked someone what Bollywood was? This was their response. So iconically goopy people actually named their kids Raj and Simran post the film. Good if you want a three-and-a-half hour mushfest.

#4 Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman

The defining moment everyone fell in love with Richard Gere. Also good for teaching any new date, simply but effectively, how a lady ought to be treated.

#3 Bridget Jones Diary

Bridget Jones' Diary

Choose them both, Bridget! Work them in shifts! It's Hugh Grant and Colin Firth for Christ's sake! There IS no wrong answer! Okay, fine, whatever, choose the one that isn't a cheating, lying philanderer. That's good too.

#2 Jab We Met

Jab We Met

If you're big on pining and unrequited love, this is your Mecca. But yay! Nice guy wins! It takes some years and over-exposure to the in-house douche (Anshuman, the original Kareena-heartbreaker) but it all ties together beautifully and everyone is happy-happy. *sniff

#1 Notting Hill


Yes, Hugh Grant is on this list a lot. But if ever there was a tiara for Rom Com King, we know who's get it. Plus, what on earth beats 'I'm just a girl, standing in front of boy, asking him to love her?' Answer: Nothing. All dates are worthless. Revert to pyjama stage.
