Since people have been going to the movies, they have been drawn to watching characters fall in love. Sometimes that love is doomed. Sometimes it is embraced and grows. Either way can make for great cinema, as seen in this collection of the best romantic movies of the 2010s. Some have complained that romance in the movies is dead, but this series of reviews of romantic films that we gave 3.5 to 4 stars proves otherwise. The best romantic movies of the 2010s cross genre from drama to comedy and come from all corners of the world and levels of budget.

These are the best romantic movies of the 2010s.
