Upgraded
Upgraded is a 2024 romantic comedy starring Camilla Mendes and Archie Renaux. A match made in rom-com heaven if you ask me.

Anyone But You 

Anyone But You
Anyone But You is making everyone’s heart bleed, especially with the happy-go-lucky song we all know and love now. Bea and Ben have the cutest meet cute of all time, but then things take a turn and now they’re stuck at a destination wedding in Australia and things take an enthralling turn.

Which Brings Me To You

By the end of this movie, you might either profess your love to someone you love or just be inspired to love your person even harder. Either way, it’s a win-win scenario. The story follows Anna Scott, a famous actress who falls in love with the owner of a bookstore, William, their story takes a turn but somehow they end up as loved up as ever.

Will Smith’s romcom era certainly had us all in a loop. A professional dating expert has made it his goal in life to help men get the women of their dreams, soon enough, he meets his match, a gossip columnist that makes him question everything he thinks he knows about romance.

Set It Up

One Day 

One Day
If you’ve made it this far, you’re awesome! And you get something extra special.
