February is a great time to indulge in some of the cheesiest rom-coms around, and there’s nothing like a 2000s romantic comedy to get you feeling the love this Valentine’s Day. Making a mark on the movie industry in a big way, some of the most popular 2000s rom-coms—specifically those that were released in the early aughts—still find their way into pop culture moments today. Ariana Grande’s all-star “thank u, next” music video parodies a range of 2000s rom-coms including “Legally Blonde” and “13 Going on 30”, and she also wore Jennifer Garner’s iconic “13 Going on 30” dress on the set of “The Voice”. So if you’re planning on spending your Feb. 14 curled up on the sofa feeling the 2000s rom-com nostalgia, why not watch the same one as the rest of your state?

Taking the top spot is “Serendipity“, starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. It’s the most popular 2000s rom-com in 18 states, and if you’re looking for your own touch of “Serendipity” magic, head to Serendipity 3 in Manhattan, the restaurant that inspired the movie.

“13 Going on 30” took second place, proving the most popular 2000s rom-com in Illinois, Kentucky, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin. “The Holiday” and “Love Actually” came in at third and fourth place and, while they’re technically Christmas movies, who says you can’t watch them during any other month?

As for those 2000s rom-coms that were favored in just one state: New York loves “Enchanted“, Utah’s favorite is “The Princess Diaries“, Vermont is a huge fan of “Legally Blonde“, and Wyoming prefer “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days“.
