Here's a List of Mindy Kaling's 9 Favorite Romantic Comedies

Mindy Kaling shared an epic list of her nine favorite romantic comedies, temporarily relieving us from the excruciating indecisiveness that is deciding what movie to watch. The eclectic list (as eclectic as rom-coms can get) includes classics like You've Got Mail, which she promises isn't a guilty pleasure, and The Holiday (you know, the one where Kate Winslet and Jack Black fall in love while Winslet is subletting Cameron Diaz's mansion).

The comedian-actress graciously shared the sacred list of rom-coms via Twitter on Wednesday, sans Annie Hall, which she said was her ex-boyfriend and close friend B.J. Novak's request.

Here are the nine movies you should watch, or rewatch, next, according to queen of all things Kaling:

1. Bridget Jones' Diary

Kaling boldly asserted, dare she say, that the movie may even be better than the book "because Hugh Grant and Colin Firth were better than the Daniel Cleaver and Mark Darcy of your mind." Fair.

2. You've Got Mail

Contrary to popular belief, Kaling assures us You've Got Mail is not a guilty pleasure because "as Quentin Tarantino said, 'there are no guilty pleasures, only pleasures.'"

3. The American President

Annette Bening in black leggings is one of the several things Kaling adores about The American President.

4. The Princess Bride

Kaling thinks The Princess Bride is "page for page the best-written romantic comedy script," and she's not the only one — it has a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 

5. The Apartment

Shirley MacLaine's pixie cut and "Jack Lemmon straining spaghetti in a tennis racket" are two things Kaling swoons over in the 1960 classic. 

6. A League of Their Own

"The only bad part was that Tom and Geena didn't hook up." Preach Mindy, preach.

7. The Holiday

Kaling loves The Holiday because it's "built around temporary subletting." Airbnb is oh so romantic. So is the idea of Kate Winslet dating Jack Black IRL.

8. Strictly Ballroom

"Real weird and so good. Gets you primed for Silver Linings Playbook." — Kaling

9. Silver Linings Playbook

"I don't care if you have a real bad mental illness, Bradley Cooper, I'll dance with you." — Kaling speaking for all of us.
