The best part of Galentine’s Day? There’s no wrong way to celebrate!

Starting the day with a mimosa-filled brunch, choosing to shower your friends with thoughtful gifts (did someone say matching bestie necklaces?) or, you can plan the most epic rom-com themed sleepover.

By definition (in the Merriam Webster dictionary), a romantic comedy is a light, comic movie or other work whose plot focuses on the development of a romantic relationship. For Galentine’s Day we’ve rounded up our favorite and most binge-worthy rom-com picks that celebrate love and friendship to watch with your squad.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This classic is filled with some of the most iconic scenes in popular culture. If you haven’t had a chance to watch just yet, what better time to then with your very best girlfriends on Galentine’s Day. We recommend grabbing a croissant (or two) while watching!

13 Going on 30

If you’ve been playing the “Thank U, Next” video on repeat (don’t worry, we are too), it’s time to relive the magic that is 13 Going on 30. Thirty, flirty, and thriving! We love everything about this rom-com. Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo? Yes, please! 13 Going on 30 is best enjoyed with Thriller choreography, 80’s music, and of course, a package of Razzles.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Because no Galentine’s Day get-together is complete without a shirtless Ryan Gosling. Add in Emma Stone and Steve Carell, and you’ve got yourself some romantic comedy gold. Crazy, Stupid, Love. is a fun, easy-watch that’s great for your Galentine’s Day gathering.

Bridesmaids

Last, but certainly not least. One of our all-time rom-com favorites. Bridesmaids features a star-studded cast along with the power comedy duo, Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. Not only is the casting amazing, but the movie also features some of the most relatable (and hilarious) quotes. So break out the pink lemonade and get ready to paaaaarty!
