Next is the ‘80s cult classic Pretty in Pink, starring Molly Ringwald, who must choose between her doting friend and a rich bad boy. Then it’s pure comedy with Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey when secret agendas backfire in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The marathon concludes with the best romantic comedy of all time, When Harry Met Sally, starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal, that has everyone still wondering ‘Can men and women truly be friends?’
