When it comes to the best rom-coms on Prime Video, there are so many to choose from. Whether you want a sappy, tear-jerking film, or one that will make you laugh and warm your heart, you’ll be able to find something.
Rom-coms are the kind of movies you can watch over and over again, but sometimes you might want to watch something completely different. Instead of closing your eyes, scrolling through menus, and choosing at random what you see, we’ve picked three romantic comedies on Prime Video that you need to watch in October.
Yes, it’s technically a Christmas rom-com, but it’s never too early to start getting into the holiday spirit. Something from Tiffany is based on Melissa Hill’s novel of the same title. A classic story of long-lasting misunderstandings, Gary (Ray Nicholson) is hit by a car in front of a Tiffany store, and his girlfriend Rachel (Zoey Deutch) finds a ring among his belongings. He thinks it was meant for him, but the ring actually belongs to a man named Ethan (Kendrick Sampson) who performs first aid on Gary and accidentally exchanges it for Gary’s gift, a pair of earrings.
To make things even more complicated, when the mix-up is revealed at Christmas and each girlfriend opens her gift, Gary, suffering from amnesia, can’t remember whether the ring is his or not. You can theorize what happened next, but who cares? Predictable or not, Something from Tiffany is a cozy fall scene, not to mention the pumpkin spice latte.
