Love Actually (2003)
All of London is in love—or longing to be—in this Christmas favorite. Billed as the ultimate romantic comedy, the storyline follows more than a dozen main characters, each weaving his or her way into another's heart over the course of one particularly eventful holiday season. While you might need a tissue every now and then, the epilogue is the very definition of happily ever after. And you get to sing Christmas music. Available at amazon.com.
