Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and as much as we love dressing up and heading out for a date night, we also love movie dates at home.

The 14 Best Romantic Comedies for a Movie Date Night At Home
I’ll never forget going to the movie theater as a teenager with a group of friends to see this one. The boys in the group all commented how that was one of the best romantic comedies they had ever seen and they’d gladly see it again. It’s all about fate bringing two people together in a set of twists and turns. It’s really funny, it’s really smart, and it will make you believe that some things are just meant to be.
Popcorn pairing: The ironic sweet and savory moments in this tale best pair with G.H. Cretors The Mix
Will Smith is equal parts charming and hilarious in this movie, but I guess that could be said for every actor and character! Hitch runs a dating service to help guys with no game have a game and win over the girl, until the girl he starts dating uncovers this person exists and goes on a hunt to expose him. You’ll laugh at the awkward and uncomfortable moments we’ve all had dating, and you’ll love the effort that people make for love. And you’ll laugh, oh how you’ll laugh!
Popcorn pairing: A sweet movie of this nature deserves the sweet flavor of G.H. Cretors Organic Honey Butter Kettlecorn
Modern Romantic Comedies
- Crazy Stupid Love
Some of the best casting ever, with so many award-winning actors and actresses! It’s equal parts touching and funny. It will remind you how amazing that special connection is, and how worth it fighting for love is. You’ll probably also want to try to recreate the scene from Dirty Dancing on your own after this one.
Popcorn pairing: The ups and downs of this movie deserve a great twist on a classic, which is why G.H. Cretors Chile Jalapeño & White Cheddar is perfect for this movie!
- Definitely Maybe
This is probably the only movie we’ve lost count how many times we’ve watched. The opening scene left us laughing so hard we cried. But truthfully, this smart story will make you think about why we choose who we do. It makes you appreciate passion and friendship in relationships, and it always leaves us believing more in love.
Popcorn pairing: Just because I think it would be April’s favorite, The Organic Dill Pickle popcorn by G.H. Cretors would be so fun with this movie!
- The Proposal
I have heard more guys say they love this movie than girls. Something about the boss trying to have her employee marry her to avoid deportation mixed with Betty White seems to win everyone over. There are scenes that are so funny, and scenes that remind you that sometimes love takes a second glance to recognize.
Popcorn pairing: Something as bold as Margaret is in order, which is why the G.H. Cretors Chili Jalapeno & White Cheddar mix is ideal.
Great Romance Movies
- 500 Days of Summer
I may be partial to this movie because we had our first kiss while watching it. This movie is one of those creative genius plots mixed with amazing acting that you just don’t forget. We love that it reminds you to learn and grow from each relationship and cherish those that cherish you. It’s also crazy funny. Did we mention that?
Popcorn pairing: A savory and creative movie of this kind deserves an equal pairing! G.H. Cretors Organic Dill Pickle popcorn makes for the perfect savory snack.
This is one of those more sci-fi style movies that’s as much a romantic comedy as any. The story follows Tristan, who crosses a magic wall into a magic kingdom to collect a fallen star to win his crush’s hand in marriage. He uncovers witches are after the star, a crazy plot to win over the kingdom, and some of the funniest scenes I think Robert Dinero has ever acted. It’s heart-warming, it’s so funny, it’s incredibly well-written, and it’s one everyone seems to love. That’s why we think it’s one of the best romantic comedies out there!
Popcorn pairing: You need a truly fantastical combination to enjoy with this magical movie, and that’s why The Mix fits perfectly with this flick!
- How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days
Andie is a journalist who covers How-To articles, Benjamin is a ladies man account executive. He’s bet he can’t make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days, and she simultaneously signs up to write an article about How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days by doing every terrible relationship stereotype she can think of. He tries harder and harder and she pushes more and more with quirky pranks and behavior. It’s hilarious, it’s cute, and the chemistry between the actors is amazing!
Popcorn pairing: As you enjoy the awkward tingle and cheesy moments that Andie tries to create, the best popcorn includes Just the Cheese Corn by G.H. Cretors.
Best Romantic Movies
- The Holiday
Two wronged women decide to leave their settings and house swap for the holidays. One to L.A. in the heart of Hollywood producers and former stars, one to a small cottage in England. They both have unlikely meetings and some romantic comedy cliches, but the plot is really great. Great acting, a reminder that good things come to those who wait, and in the end, we do get what we deserve makes this a movie we both choose to watch at least once a year.
Popcorn pairing: Because Iris is entrenched in classic Hollywood film and culture, the classic G.H. Cretors Organic Salted Butter popcorn is the perfect fit.
- Princess Bride
A classmate in high school once mentioned they hadn’t seen this movie and the teacher made us both laugh when she said, “What!?! That’s…..un-American!” It’s definitely a classic most people enjoyed when it was released in the 80’s, but its timeless story and message have made it a classic that is absolutely timeless. Most families love watching this one together, but it’s the perfect at-home date movie too!
Popcorn pairing: A classic like this deserves the simple delicious classic Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil by G.H. Cretors.
- 10 Things I Hate About You
Any 90’s child will remember this one as one of THE movies, and definitely what made certain prom dresses trend in the early 2000’s! It’s a modern take on Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, with a really amazing cast. It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s charming, and it will make you miss Heath Ledger even more. Definitely, one everyone seems to still quote and love years later!
Popcorn pairing: Sweet and salty is sheer perfection to enjoy with this movie, which is why the Organic Honey Butter Kettlecorn by G.H. Cretors is our favorite.
Best Romcom Movies
- 50 First Dates
This is an Adam Sandler movie that’s a little more comedy than others but in a good way. He falls for Lucy who has short-term memory loss and can’t remember what she did yesterday. He has to creatively woo her and win her over day by day. It’s creative, it’s very funny, and it’s one of the sweetest movies that reminds us how important it is to keep the romance alive in a relationship.
Popcorn pairing: A movie this sweet deserves G.H. Cretors Just the Caramel Corn to enjoy the sweetest flavor of all!
- Pitch Perfect
We’ve laughed and laughed and quoted this movie for years. Every time one of us suggests it, we oblige! It focuses on an A’capella group forming and competing in college, but it has some of the best-written characters you’ll see in a movie. We laugh until we cry, and we love that there’s plenty of romance to keep you feeling a little mushy while you’re cracking up.
Popcorn pairing: An unexpected choice like this deserves a fun bold flavor like the G.H. Cretors Buffalo & Ranch Mix
- You’ve Got Mail
I was amazed that my husband brought this DVD into our marriage, but he loves it. Turns out, most our friends have agreed it’s a male favorite. Something about the Pride and Prejudice influence and Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan together makes this such a great watch! It’s smart, it’s fast-paced, and it will make you laugh remembering dial tones to connect to your email.
Popcorn pairing: A salty-sweet flavor matches this plot perfectly, which is why Organic Honey Butter Kettlecorn by G.H. Cretors fits this movie so well.
