For a Laugh: Bridget Jones's Diary
Why we love it: Because she's one of us. Actually she's kind of worse, which makes us feel better. Renée Zellweger (at a normal human weight!) is a charmingly hopeless girl with a crush and lofty career aspirations. Her inner dialogues are amazing. Case in point: “I will not fall for any of the following: alcoholics, workaholics, commitment phobics, people with girlfriends or wives, misogynists, megalomanics, chauvinists, emotional fuckwits or freeloaders, perverts.” Words to live by, Bridget.

For a Classic Evening: Casablanca

Why we love it: Casablanca is Hollywood's most iconic love story. If you've never had the pleasure of pining after Humphrey Bogart, you're in for an overdue treat. Warning: HB can make all men of today seem like, well, boys.

For the Modern Romantic: When Harry Met Sally

Why we love it: Who doesn't love soul mates? Nora Ephron's deliciously written love story stars Meg Ryan (Sally) and Billy Crystal (Harry) who start out hating one another but embark on quite the friendship. You'll laugh uncontrollably, you'll get a little choked up, and you'll even learn how best to fake an orgasm.

For a Retro Feel: Mermaids

Why we love it: Cher, Winona Ryder and a very young Christina Ricci wreaking havoc in suburbia. After watching this flick, you'll wonder how you went so many years without considering this film one of your go-to rom-coms.

For the Single Girl: My Best Friend's Wedding

Why we love it: Four words: Julia Roberts. 90s style. Watching our heroine attempt to break up the impending nuptials between her best friend and his new 20-something fiancé always puts us in a good mood.

For 80's Glam: Say Anything
Why we love it: A high school romance between two unlikely characters that begins on graduation day can only take you back to your first love. And you'll finally know why the photo of the young John Cusack holding an '80s version of an iPod (read: HUGE boombox) is so iconic.
