Whether you’re happily married, spending time with a special someone, or actively avoiding the dating pool, we can all appreciate a perfect cinematic moment that restores your faith in love — and bonus points for including food, because, well, we might just love food more than people. Is there anyone that wasn’t rooting for Colin Firth in Bridget Jones’ Diary or wouldn’t splurge on a $5 milkshake after Pulp Fiction?
