As much as I wish I could fight it, it’s undeniably Valentine’s Day season. While I generally fall into the bah humbug category, I figure if we’re going to do it at all, we’re going to do it right. That’s where Sleepless in Seattle comes in — hands down the most gushy, romantic, gag-inducingly sweet chick flick ever centered around Valentine’s Day. Fess up, you liked it, too.

In 1993, Meg Ryan was basically the quirky girl’s ideal — pretty, smart and just wacky enough to make boys weak in the knees. She also rocked a vintage kitchen and a pair of highwaisted trousers like no other, all undeniable points in her favor, so it’s no wonder that Tom Hanks fell for her right away. Even if I’ll be sitting this Valentine’s Day out, I’ll be sure to channel a little Sleepless in Seattle in the off-chance that I’ll need to make a midnight dash up the Empire State Building. It never hurts to dream, right? — Amy M.
