From meet-cutes to family gatherings to deliciously hot guys, these movies have everything you need to turn even the biggest grinch into a believer. So bust out your Starbucks red cups and curl up with nine of the best romantic comedies known to womankind. Tissues not included.

1. The Holiday

Because two happy endings are so much better than one.

2. Love Actually

It's truly shocking that this movie's hit single, "Christmas Is All Around" didn't win a Grammy. ("I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes" is lyrical gold.)

3. Bridget Jones' Diary

If a dysfunctional 30-something alcoholic can snag Colin Firth and Hugh Grant, then there's hope.

4. While You Were Sleeping

Before she was an Oscar-winning actress with "serious" roles, Sandra Bullock was just the lovable "every girl" with an obsessive crush. And we've all been there.

5. Serendipity

Moral of the story: If you have patience, fate will bring early 2000's John Cusack into your waiting arms.

6. Sleepless in Seattle

The movie that gave every woman in America unrealistic expectations about the Empire State Building.

7. Four Christmases

Take one Reese Witherspoon, add one Vince Vaughn and voila! The perfect romantic comedy.

8. The Family Stone

Family squabbles? Watch these siblings swap girlfriends in the most cringe-worthy way possible -; it'll make your quarrels seem trivial, we promise.

Twenty-six years later and this movie still tugs at our heart strings.
