'When Harry Met Sally' and 'The Princess Bride'

There are many different ways to celebrate New Year's Eve, and while we love a good, noisy party as much as the next reveler, sometimes we're in the mood for a more low-key evening. One spent, say, relaxing at home with a good movie.

And while we also appreciate twisty psychological thrillers, high-adrenaline action flicks and unsettling horror films, these aren't quite right for New Year's Eve, when we might be recovering from various holiday gatherings, and maybe musing over the past year and wondering what's in store for the next.

This is the night for light, uplifting -- dare we say it -- feelgood films. Movies that don't mess with our heads too much and, like the year itself (hopefully), end on a positive note. Particularly appropriate are films in which people change or grow or learn something, though it isn't required. Naturally, many of these are romcoms.

Here's a highly subjective list of 10 great movies to watch on New Year's Eve:
