The summer film season has finally come. It is perhaps the most exciting time for cinema aficionados and general audiences, when they can literally walk into a movie theater at any time and see something huge, expensive, and stunning, as well as a range of smaller and more unusual films. Summer romance movies virtually write themselves, from beachside campfires to late-night conversations with a nice wind blowing. The summer season brings back memories for many folks of being out of school, having their first job, and fervently hoping to be invited to those gatherings that bring everyone together.

Summer is also a season for daring moves and open discussions. Warm weather seems to boost confidence, and people take risks they never would have imagined possible. Some become daredevils to wow the crowd, while others grow closer to a certain person. In any case, plenty of meet-cutes occur, and sparks fly. If you, like the majority of people, desire simpler times, check out the 10 best romantic comedies to watch this summer season from the comfort of your home on Netflix.

When Gabby's boyfriend returns to the United States, their love story is thrown off track, but Travis remains certain that she is a woman worth fighting for.
