It's hard to find a movie that has the right balance of both humor and heart.
I asked myself two questions while considering the movies for this list: Are the films funny enough that both women and men can enjoy them, and is a feel-good love story integral to the plot?
If one should get dropped by accident, well, the Cusack character thinks that when your heart breaks, "it grows back bigger." So maybe it's a good thing for it to be broken? These actors with their gifts deserve characters that the movie takes more seriously and puts at more risk.
The Stockard Channing character is like a visitor from a parallel universe in which such movies are made.
It shows what a little help from the audience can do to promote worthy projects.
