The Lost City (2022)

When a disgruntled romance novelist (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock) is kidnapped, her absent-minded cover model (Channing Tatum) tries to prove he can be a real hero by rescuing her, setting them on a wild adventure way above their pedigree.

Why it’s a good option for rom-com fans: In a time when action-packed romantic-comedy movies are making a comeback, The Lost City is one of the most satisfying of the bunch, thanks to Bullock and Tatum’s chemistry, Daniel Radcliffe’s scenery-chewing villain role, and an adventurous Brad Pitt.

Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)

A happy-go-lucky socialite (Audrey Hepburn) becomes acquainted with her New York City apartment building’s latest tenant (George Peppard) and the pair develop a friendship that could become more, if not for their own secretive pasts putting the relationship at risk.

Why it’s a good option for rom-com fans: While George Axelrod’s screenplay does take more than a few liberties from Truman Capote’s original novel, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and Mickey Rooney’s performance as Holly Golightly’s Japanese landlord, Mr. Yunioshi, has (to put it lightly) not aged well, the result is still an irresistible comedy — featuring Hepburn’s stirring performance of the Academy Award-winning original song, “Moon River” — from director Blake Edwards.

Stream Breakfast at Tiffany's on Paramount+.

While there are a lot of audiences these days who may prefer to get their romantic-comedy movies on Netflix or perhaps seek out other funny love stories on Max, one cannot deny that the selection for Paramount+ subscribers is certainly worth falling head over heels for.
