Dating — 22 Movies To Watch During Cuffing Season That Are Perfect For Cuddling

'Between Two Ferns: The Movie'

Available on Netflix, a good, low-key hibernation date pick is Between Two Ferns: The Movie, a feature film based on Zach Galifianakis' quirky celebrity interview show. Guests include Chrissy Teigen, Tiffany Haddish, Awkafina, Keanu Reeves, Chance the Rapper, and so many more celeb faves.

'Charlie’s Angels' & 'Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle'

If you really feeling the remake with Kristen Stewart, Elizabeth Banks, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska come Nov. 15, get up to speed with the Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron Diaz movies that brought Charlie's Angels kicking into this century. While both films are available on Netflix, you and your boo could probably hunt down the Charlie's Angels TV show from the '70s and '80s if you're snowed in and looking to kill time.

'Men in Black' & 'Men in Black II'

Likewise, if Men in Black: International, gave you and bae life, snuggle up and get your date-night dose of goofy, alien content. The sequel is already on Netflix, but Men in Black will be available on Oct. 19.


Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, and Orlando Bloom in one historical fiction film? Not only can Troy appeal to the history nerd in your or your partner, but it's also a prime pick for equal-opportunity thirsting. This ancient Greek thirst trap is available on Netflix.


If you or your boo liked Us or Season 3 of Stranger Things, get into Assimilate: a horror movie about a town where people are killed and replaced with monstrous copies. This will be available on Netflix on Oct. 25.

'Dark Crimes'

Another horror flick (this time starring Jim Carrey), Dark Crimes follows an investigation where the murders mimic those in a crime writer's novels. This chilling thriller hits Netflix on Oct. 15.

'Jenny Slate: Stage Fright'

Are you and your boo the type to trade memes and live-text each other through SNL? Then a comedy special is ideal for you this cuffing season. Get into Jenny Slate's wholesome-but-rowdy stand-up special premiering on Netflix on Oct. 22. Looks like Slate has come a long way from Marcel the Shell.


Similar to The Social Network, this Netflix Original from India follows a group of friends who are trying to develop the next big app and all the drama that ensues. Available on Netflix on Oct. 18, this would 10/10 be a good pick for your bae if they're a STEM nerd, business major, or love a good foreign film.

'Unaccompanied Minors'

Chances are, you could be snuggled up with your seasonal bae throughout the weeks leading up to Christmas. Unaccompanied Minors or any other Christmas movie available on Netflix might be a comforting, nostalgic pick.

'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse'

While equally playful, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse isn't just your average kids movie. Available on Netflix, the film has all the intrigue of a regular Marvel movie, plus gorgeous, Oscar-winning animation. It's a good pick if you're looking for a movie that will make your heart soft and totally restore your faith in humanity.


If you're typically torn between dramas and thrillers on your hibernation dates, watch Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Ludacris, Terrance Howard and Ryan Phillippe play Los Angeles residents whose heartbreaks are all intertwined in Crash, available on Netflix.

'Living Undocumented'

A Selena Gomez-produced Netflix Orginal, Living Undocumented follows eight immigrant families facing deportation. This pick (now available for streaming) is perfect if you and your boo love snuggling as much as you love fighting for social justice.

'Sarah's Key'

Based on the 2007 novel of the same name, Sarah's Key follows Julia, a Parisian journalist who uncovers the story of Sarah, a young Jewish girl who lived through the Holocaust. While the film is heavy, it can make for a thought-provoking date night, especially if you and your partner are big history fans.

'The Pursuit of Happyness'

Who doesn't love an underdog story? The Pursuit of Happyness is a come-up classic and also a good date-night pick if you're ready to cry into your boo's chest.

'Ocean’s Twelve' & 'Ocean’s Thirteen'

Both Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen are on Netflix as of Oct. 2019, so you can get your heist on (and thirst over the Ocean's cast) henceforth.


After might feel a little more "girls' night" than "date night," but this romance-turned-thriller, available on Netflix on Oct. 9, will have you on the edge of your seat.

'The Invitation'

Does talking to or hanging out with your ex feel like a horror movie? Well, that's The Invitation for you. This movie's eerie vibes, which is now on Netflix, will make you grab your boo's hand super tight under that cozy flannel blanket.

'Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' & 'Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King'

And of course, a fantasy movie marathon is always an option (all the Star Wars and Harry Potter movies, too!) when snowed in with your cuffing-season bae. Not only do you get to indulge your nerdy sides, but you can totally Netflix, chill, and have a good hour of movie left to watch.

Whether you go for scary, funny, adventurous, thrilling, or somewhere in between, all of these movies are definitely worth settling in for with some snacks, your hot drink of choice, and a good, sturdy blanket to keep you and your boo cozy.
