When the mood strikes you to see the nuances of love play out on-screen, here are some great romantic movies on Netflix instant streaming to consider.

One is a classy drama, another is a touching comedy, and yet another is a feel-good comedy. These movies are great to watch with your guy or with a box of chocolate!


Enchanted April

PG/1992/93 Minutes

Enchanted April is a very subtle romantic drama. There is nothing overtly crude or crass in it, and you can actually have the entire family, including kids, in the room when you watch it.

Two women from 1920s London decide to take a vacation away from their lives as dutiful wives by renting an Italian villa. To split the cost of rent further, they bring along an elderly widow and a carefree socialite.

The two wives breathe in newfound life with their stroke of temporary independence amid a calming backdrop of hills and endless flowers. The husbands end up visiting their villa with less than loving intentions, but the ending to this movie has the type of old-fashioned ending we wish was still a Hollywood standard.

Enchanted April is especially appropriate for any woman who has ever felt unappreciated by her spouse, or those who simply feel a need for a little dose of freedom.

Good Dick

R/2008/86 Minutes

First, it's not what you think. Good Dick stars Jason Ritter (John Ritter's son) as a video store clerk who becomes enamored with a reclusive girl that rents X-rated films. The girl, having had a difficult childhood, is emotionally closed off to him.

The clerk, having genuine feelings for the girl, works slowly and consistently to break down the emotional wall she has up. The girl is mean to him and poses a challenge for the patient clerk. Good Dick is a great movie for those of you who like the idea of being "saved" or "helped" by a love interest.

It's also ideal for those who feel a bit embittered about love. This little gem of a movie shows us how one human being can bring tenderness to another's life that is entrenched in pain.

Of all these great romantic movies on Netflix Instant, this is definitely the most touching. This movie has some adult themes but in the end it is all about the heart.

Note: If this video is no longer available on Netflix Instant, you can find Good Dick on Amazon Instant Video.

Maid in Manhattan

PG-13/2002/105 Minutes

Despite the fact that Maid in Manhattan was critically panned when it hit the big screen in 2002, it makes for the perfect Cinderella story, which plenty of moviegoers still enjoy.

Maid Marisa, played by Jennifer Lopez, gets the attention of wealthy Christopher in an expensive hotel suite, where he mistakes her for a guest. Will love ensue when Marisa reveals who she really is?

While I enjoyed the acting job by Jennifer Lopez, it was a little odd at first to see Ralph Feinnes in a mass media movie rather than independent film. However, the romantic story amid the views and backdrop of Manhattan life are a win-win.

Besides, don't a lot of us enjoy the idea of going from working class to wealthy? Even if it is just a daydream?

    I have Netflix and appreciate these reviews. I've already seen Maid in Manhattan and loved it.

    Never heard of Good Dick, but your review has inspired me to watch it.

    Am also intrigued by Enchanted April.

    Thanks for sharing this information.

    Voted up, useful and interesting.
