It seems like romantic comedies have been on the rise recently. After the enormous success of Purple Hearts, Netflix appears to invest more in the genre, with the latest movies like That’s Amor, Love in the Villa, and Look Both Ways as great proofs. That’s Amor, about a woman named Sophie, who has to start from scratch when she gets fired from her job and finds her boyfriend cheating on her. When Sophie meets an incredibly handsome (of course) Spanish chef, she questions whether he is the right man for her or not.
Although the scenario is not very original, the film is still enjoyable as a romantic comedy. And those who liked the film might be looking for similar suggestions. No worries. That’s why we’re here. Here is a list of 6 movies like That’s Amor that you can watch if you liked the Netflix rom-com.

On our list of movies like That’s Amor, we included A California Christmas: City Lights (2021), a sequel to the 2020’s A California Christmas.

Just as everything goes great for the couple, some family and business problems get in the way and threaten their relationship.
