Romance for all! Whether you’re stuck at home due to inclement weather, or simply want a night in, Us Weekly has the perfect must-watch movie list for indoor viewing.
While some fans may opt for social media quizzes or binge-watching a new show, others choose to break out their go-to romantic comedies during a long weekend staycation where they never leave the couch.
Films including You’ve Got Mail, The Perfect Man and Pillow Talk remind everyone that romance doesn’t always happen face-to-face. It can happen via email, through instant messaging and over the phone.
“You’ve Got Mail is the most soul-mate-y of soul-mate movies,” Mindy Kaling told Vulture in September 2010 while talking about her obsession with the Nora Ephron film.
Bridget Jones’s Diary, The Holiday and Legally Blonde, meanwhile, reveal the best breakup remedies that anyone can do at home.
While Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet switched houses, traveling from L.A. to England and vice versa, they also enjoyed a lot of lounging around in their houses to get through their tough times.
Case and point: Diaz’s character Amanda having a dance party in her pajamas while drinking wine in the English countryside.
When Harry Met Sally, on the other hand, makes viewers wonder if they really can be just friends with the opposite sex.
“You never know. You make a movie, and hopefully you like it, and hopefully other people [do too],” Rob Reiner told Us and other reporters at the 30th Anniversary Screening of When Harry Met Sally at TCM Classic Film Festival Opening Night Gala in April 2019. “You have no idea if it will stand the test of time, and it’s kind of cool that it did.”
The director attributed the film’s success to its universal themes that are still relevant decades after the movie’s 1989 premiere.
“I think that there are some basic truths about men and women that people connect with, and those kind of things — that dance, that weird dance that men and women do with one another kind of is basic and kind of there all of the time,” Reiner explained.
Clueless , for its part, will have fans yearning for parties on Sunset Boulevard where they sing along to “Rolling With the Homies” with their best friends.
No matter your reasons for staying indoors — including battling an illness, braving a storm or overcoming a rough break up — Us has you covered with the ultimate rom-com viewing list.
