So many movies, so little time. Thankfully, BuzzSugar is here to help you sort through them all! Each week, we'll choose a theme for a Movie Night and feature three must-see movies in keeping with that theme. This week's theme: New Year's Eve films, and it so happens that each of these movies is a also a romantic comedy. So whether you're happily in love or going solo, these films will help you ring in the new year with a heartwarming laugh either way.
When Harry Met Sally
Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan star as Harry and Sally, two "just friends" who ride the waves of their respective relationships together, developing a strong friendship over the years. The problem arises, however: "Can a man and a woman remain friends without sex getting in the way?" The culminating New Year's Eve scene makes my stomach go all woogly every time.
Two more, so
Bridget Jones' Diary
The New Year is Bridget Jones' (Renee Zellweger's) opportunity to better herself and her life. The self-improvement includes documenting her weight, alcohol consumption and romantic misadventures in her diary, telling the whole truth at all times. She struggles with feeling pudgy, family issues, meeting Mr. Wrong (Hugh Grant), and then Mr. Right (Colin Firth), and having the two fight over her — all in one well-journaled year.
Holiday (Not to be confused with The Holiday which is a totally different movie about different things.)
In this 1938 classic, Cary Grant plays Johnny Case, a free-thinking guy engaged to the wealthy Julia Seton (Doris Nolan). Julia's family starts trying to mold Johnny into their version of the perfect son-in-law, but he wishes instead to be always on "holiday." He spends time with Julia's strong-willed sister Linda (Katharine Hepburn), and tries to figure out what kind of life — and woman — he wants. On New Year's Eve Johnny realizes what's truly in his heart.
