“A pre-Titanic Leonardo DiCaprio making eyes at a post-My So Called Life Claire Danes...behind a fish tank...while Des'ree sings ‘Kissing You.’ C’mon."
--Susan Waits, New York Editor
"OK, I have to admit I'm not the biggest Cameron Diaz fan. But Jack Black? So underrated. In two words, this movie is ‘totally brill.’ I also admit that I'm a total loser for saying that."
--Angela Cuneo, Editor
“I love You've Got Mail because now that it's 17 years old, it's a nostalgic look at a time when meeting people and falling in love online was so new. It makes Internet dating look sweet and innocent--none of this rejecting someone after a two-second glance at a selfie.”
--Amalie Drury, Chicago Editor
“That scene when they are both walking across the moors and finally embrace and accept that they're meant to be together? All the feels. If Mr. Darcy doesn't make you want to fall in love, you have no soul."
--Grace Hunt, Assistant Editor
“Maybe it’s the amazing Larrabee estate. Or the way Sabrina says 'solarium'. But I can’t help but fight for Linus: the guy who thinks morals are paintings on walls and scruples are money in Russia. Oh, and then there’s how Sabrina, once an awkward girl, comes into her own with grace and style.”
--Caroline Terry, Dallas Editor
"I bet my next husband will be named Crash Davis."
--Mary Kate McGrath, Editor in Chief
“The Way We Were is both a glam depiction of a bygone era--Hollywood in the '40s and '50s--and an ill-fated story of how an ugly duckling and a handsome prince are terribly in love but can’t overcome the political and social pressures tearing them apart.”
--Dana Dickey, Los Angeles Editor
“Confession: I’m a sucker for rom-coms, especially of the John Hughes variety. That scene where Jake Ryan is waiting for Samantha after her sister’s wedding makes my heart skip a beat.”
--Lauren Gniazdowski, Associate Managing Editor
“Because it’s witty and whimsical and makes me wish I could drop everything and run to Paris to cavort with Gertrude Stein and Salvador Dalí. (And let’s be honest, fall in love with Owen Wilson.)”
--Sarah Stiefvater, Assistant Editor
“Because it IS possible to orgasm just by talking to Ethan Hawke for 12 straight hours.”
--Jillian Quint, National Editor
"It's so sad to see the wife struggling with alcoholism and as much as her downward spiral causes serious rifts in the relationship, the husband stays with her and eventually helps her through it. There are so many emotional ups and downs in this movie. It's a real roller coaster. But it ends with husband and wife kissing and making up.”
--Allison McCarthy, San Francisco Editor
“The entire movie is perfect--the way all of the love stories come together at the end, and I cry for the final five minutes every time. But this scene is everything.”
--Hannah Loewentheil, Editorial Assistant
