Stream of the Day

Stream these Valentine’s rom-coms today

For Valentine’s Day, Showmax has added a few classic romantic-comedies and heart-string pulling love stories to its streaming platform

Bridesmaids (2011)

Annie is an out-of-work pastry chef, who agrees to be the maid of honour for her lifetime best friend Lillian. Though lovelorn and broke, she bluffs her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals, determined to show Lillian and her bridesmaids just how far you’ll go for someone you love.

As Annie, Kristen Wiig was nominated for a Golden Globe, while Melissa McCarthy earned her first Oscar nomination as Megan, another bridesmaid. Three-time Emmy nominee Maya Rudolph (The Good Place) plays Lillian,  while Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne (Damages), Emmy nominee Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Critics Choice nominee Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs) co-star as the other bridesmaids. Look out for Golden Globe winner Jon Hamm (Mad Men) and Emmy winner Chris O’Dowd (State of the Union) as Annie’s love interests.

Trainwreck (2015)

Having thought that monogamy was unrealistic, a commitment-phobic career woman may have to face her fears when she meets a good guy.

In the lead role of Amy, Amy Schumer was nominated for a Golden Globe and four MTV Movie Awards, and won a Critics Choice Award. The all-star cast includes three-time Emmy winner Bill Hader (Barry) and Teen and People’s Choice nominee John Cena (Bumblebee) as very different love interests; Oscar winners Brie Larson (Room, Captain Marvel), Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) and Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny); basketball legend LeBron James in a hilarious cameo as himself; and even People’s Choice winner Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) as a dog walker.
