Love Actually may be the greatest holiday sap-fest ever—in the best way. You have multiple stories of love (10, to be exact), between parents and children, friends, family, and of course, attractive people who want to have sex with each other. It's impossible to get bored with so many stories bouncing around, all of which tie together blissfully at a Christmas concert. All of the UK's favorites make appearences: Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Mr. Bean. The flick is so charming that it's gone on to inspire awful American copycats like Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve. That's how you know it's real.
