Netflix Canada’s Valentine’s Day Picks… Weird, Wonderful, And Funny

Entertainment / Movies / TV

Our friends over at Netflix Canada have created a list of TV shows and movies that capture the ins and outs of relationships just in time for Valentine’s Day. February can either be a time to celebrate full-blossomed love, or just a reminder that love stinks. One thing we can all agree on is that love can be weird… and wonderful… and sometimes, really funny.

Gillian Jacobs, star of the upcoming Netflix Original Series Love, has also curated a section of her Netflix favourites. The Judd Apatow produced Love follows nice guy Gus (Paul Rust) and brazen wild-child Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, love and other things they were hoping to avoid.
