Risa Bramon Garcia’s late-’90s movie just beats the latter one, though, because when it comes to two movies with no personality at all, indie mediocrity will always have a little more soul than glossy studio schlock. So, 200 Cigarettes, congrats! I wish you a happy new year.

Serendipity (2001)

When Jonathan (John Cusack) meets Sara (Kate Beckinsale) at Bloomingdale’s in New York City, it’s love at first sight. But they are in relationships with each other. Sara thinks that she and Jonathan are meant to be together because they ran into each other again at a restaurant.

Just Friends (2005)

In Roger Kumble’s rom-com, Ryan Reynolds plays Chris, a former fat kid who works in the music business and ends up back at home at Christmas with a self-centered pop star who is one of his clients (Anna Faris). He uses his unexpected return home to try to get out of the friend zone with his childhood best friend, which is sexist, to begin with, but sure!

(Amy Smart). Just Friends is about as unromantic and unfunny as a rom-com can be. Most of the jokes are about weight, and the love story is based on Chris’s sense of entitlement.

The Holiday (2006)

Iris Simpkins, played by Kate Winslet, is still not over her ex-boyfriend. For a while, she moves in with Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz), a movie trailer producer in Los Angeles who is also going through a breakup. This helps her move on. Even though Iris and Amanda didn’t plan to meet anyone new, they fell in love with the locals while they were there.

Last Christmas (2019)

Single All The Way (2021)

Peter, a social media strategist in Los Angeles who is played by Michael Urie, is very much single again.
