4. Sleepless in Seattle
Another Meg Ryan winner! Not only is the story (a widowed man’s son does everything in his power to unite his father with a fantastic lady who lives on the east coast) inspiring, but the chemistry between Ryan and frequent co-star Tom Hanks is astounding.
3. An Affair to Remember
Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, need we say more? It is physically impossible to not laugh and cry while watching this sentimental classic that definitely belongs in an intentional time capsule. Oh and those last ten minutes, we are compelled to use the expression “OMG.”
2. Love Actually
You know what’s even better than one love story? 10 love stories! Richard Curtis’ intertwining romance starring Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Keira Knightley and many other Hollywood stars is perfect to watch before Christmas or Valentine’s Day. It’s a warm-and-fuzzy flick that keeps the cheese factor down to .1 percent. Although each person’s tale is extremely satisfying, watching Colin Firth seize the day and track down the woman he loves makes our heart beat just a little faster.
