If Valentine’s Day really was invented solely to torture single people, one might argue that the entire romantic comedy genre is intended to see them through. Having lived through our share of solo February 14ths, everyone in this office knows the power of a feel-good movie when you need it. We put our heads together to come up with our all time favorite Valentine’s Day flicks — movies that make us laugh, feel good, and renew our hope in love. It’s ironic — when you have a boyfriend you’ll rarely get to watch these movies any more. So if you happen to have complete power over the remote control this week, take advantage with one of our twenty favorite films that met our strictest Valentine’s Day requirement: a happy ending. …see the slideshow here

Sarah Jessica Parker plans to speak out after feeling Kim Cattrall’s angry post accusing her of exploiting her brother’s death is giving off the wrong image.
The actress — who is mom to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 5 — revealed that she spends her weekends like many other parents this time of year, posting a photo of herself pushing the popular cookies outside of a grocery store.
“Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints,” she captioned a candid snap on Instagram, in which she held a homemade sign advertising the treats. She also added the hashtags “#tistheseason,” “#comeandgetem” and “#whodoesntloveagirlscout.”
In 2016, Garner revealed that she’s a true cookie salesperson at heart during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
“I’m the one telling the girls, you know, ‘Try to talk about the gluten free because they’re a dollar more.’ Let’s have an upsell!” she said.
The star also shared that she went through “intense” training to become a scout group leader, but when it comes to selling cookies, most buyers aren’t phased by the fact that the celebrity is there.
“Nobody cares,” she said. “I’m just there with the troop.”

A young California Girl Scout recently made headlines when she posted up shop outside a marijuana dispensary in San Diego, selling more than 300 boxes of the famous cookies in just six hours, Fox 4 reported.
The dispensary, called Urbn Leaf, shared a photo of the Girl Scout posing in front of the dispensary holding a stack of cookie boxes while wearing her uniform and Samoa glasses.
“Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm! Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with – shopping is more fun with friends anyways,” the post said.
The chief communications officer from Girl Scouts of the USA Kelly Parisi told the Los Angeles Times that each region of Girl Scouts has its own guidelines.
“All the money stays in local councils, and they make all decisions on how the cookie program is run,” said Parisi in a statement. “As always, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of the girls we serve. Volunteers and parents are empowered to relocate their booths if conditions change and the location is no longer suitable.”
Three defendants received life sentences — plus decades of additional prison time — Friday following their December convictions in the “revenge” slaying of a 7-year-old girl.
Police are searching for Douglas Rivera of Baldwin Park, California, who allegedly forced his way into a young girl’s hotel room and sexually assaulted her.
Rivera, a 40-year-old pastor, was seen on security cameras driving through the Vanllee Hotel and Suites parking lot – located in Covina which is east of Downtown Los Angeles – before stopping outside a lit room with drapes open, according to the Covina Police Department.
Two underage girls, who are between the ages of 10 and 12, were inside of the hotel room when Rivera pulled up in his Dodge Ram truck and masturbated while watching them through the window, police said.
Rivera, who was wearing a tan/brown suit with blue and white striped shirt, then allegedly got out and stood outside of the girls’ hotel window pretending to be on the phone for over 30 minutes before he forced his way into their room.
Rivera allegedly assaulted one of the young girls and fled in his vehicle.
