A romantic comedy that’s witty, engaging, and pulls all the right heartstrings is pretty hard to come by in this day and age. So when one rolls around and it’s a bonafide good time, it’s something of a mini-miracle. This is the case with the Netflix Original movie Love Hard.
Nina Dobrev stars as Natalie, an unlucky-in-love LA girl who meets her dream guy online. But when she goes to surprise him on the other side of the country, she learns she was actually catfished by Josh (Jimmy O. Yang). He agrees to set her up with the actual guy that he was posing as on one condition: she pretends to be his girlfriend over Christmas.
Love Hard checks all the right boxes when it comes to delivering our sappy rom-com needs. It’s a story about the importance of caring for one another during the holiday season, the trials and tribulations of dating in the internet age, and ultimately, finding love against all odds.
And if you’re a fan of all of those things, you’re in luck, because we’ve got a curated list of similar recommendations.
