Christmas came early this month for those who adore cheesy rom-coms following the release of Netflix's Love Hard.

She ends up meeting a guy named Josh (Jimmy O. Yang) on a dating app and falls head over heels in love. 

In the spirit of yuletide, she flies 3,000 miles across the country to surprise him in his hometown, but she soon finds out she's been catfished and Josh isn't who he said he was.

Natalie discovers Josh has been filling his dating profile with photos of a man named Tag (played by Darren Barnet).

As Natalie and Josh get to know each other, they reveal their ultimate Christmas movies.

One viewer on Twitter picked up on this and believes their choices actually inspired Love Hard's title.

Another fan tagged their friend, writing: "it makes so much more sense now."

A third person shared they watched the entire movie but didn't realise until after it ended. "I just finished watching it, how did I not put that together???"

One shocked fan tweeted: "Oh my goodness! Why didn't I figure that out! Now I want to watch it again."

And another user joked: "Sequel: Die, Actually."
