And while you certainly could watch the literally flawless Meg Ryan trifecta—When Harry Met SallySleepless in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail, for the uninitiated—or newer entries to the canon like Happiest Season and The Big Sick over and over (cc: me), 2021’s slate of new releases may put you in the mood to branch out.
