For incoming freshmen, college can be a big, scary new world. And between homework, class schedules and weird new roommates, there's enough to worry about without the added pressure of putting together a decent DVD collection.

Relationships can turn us into self-involved, sentimental wrecks. But throw on a good romantic comedy and suddenly it's tough to take yourself too seriously. With life back in perspective, you laugh away your tears and regain the certainty that love will conquer all.
Well, unless you're a guy.
Men seem more immune to the mirror these movies hold up, perhaps because they rarely see themselves reflected. It's the infrequent film that makes a guy nod his head and say "Yup, that's me in love. Aren't I silly?"
"One of my favorite love stories of all time is "'Annie Hall.'
"That's sort of apropos. Woody Allen is a dream director for me and I've been a huge fan of his work."
Valentine's Day is upon us, love is in the air, and we are so on it.
Oh, we don't mean candlelit dinners and flower deliveries -- we mean romantic movies, in which every meet-cute and heartbreak has a soundtrack; and hot, sensitive characters say "I love you" better than your significant other ever will.
You know who loves romantic movies, too? Celebrities. From Channing Tatum to Christina Hendricks, these 20 famous folks name their favorites and give us some pretty good ideas for what we might be watching (again) this Valentine's Day.

Can you guess which movie "If You Leave Me, I Delete You" is? How about "Santa Is a Pervert"? In honor of the Israeli title for "Puss in Boots," i.e., "Shrek's Cat" (ooh, Puss wouldn't like that one), we re-designed posters for 15 twisted title translations that made us laugh in multiple languages.
"I could say it changes sometimes, like the top 5 or ten change, depending on what mood I'm in, but if I think of a movie that... was very seminal in my childhood, it would be 'Annie Hall.'
"It was my father's favorite movie. It's one of those films, if you're an east coast Jew -- a suburban Jew -- it very often overlaps your life.
"In fact... I'm having a play reading of my new play and it's like that scene where Woody Allen is watching his life unfold in a rehearsal for a play and he says to the camera, 'What do you want, it was my first play?' I recently felt that exact thing." Get More »
