Follow the lives of eight couples as they fall in and out of love. Some, even, use lines like this: “But for now, let me say - without hope or agenda - Just because it's Christmas - And at Christmas you tell the truth - To me, you are perfect - And my wasted heart will love you.” All together now: aww.
Feeling gloomy? We dare you to watch Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) try her hand at driving on the freeway without laughing. That’s just one of the bright spots in a movie that introduced both a new vocabulary ("As if!") and a young Paul Rudd.
This movie has it all, from pirates to gentle giants to a six-fingered villain—plus a love story, of course.

The quirky relationship between neurotic Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) and free-spirited Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) is sure to make you laugh. Bonus: The movie features some of Allen's most memorable comic dialogue.
