    If you happen to have gotten smacked with that nasty bug that seems to be spreading like the plague (and feels a little like it, too), we're so sorry. If you've managed to avoid it, yay for you. But perhaps you just need to take a mental health day? Or maybe you just want to stick it to your bosses, and straight up play hooky. Well, no matter what, consider us the ultimate bearers of care packages. Imagine us standing at your door right now, with a big e-hug, some chicken noodle soup (gourmet, of course), and a heaping brown bag full of our 13 fave sicky flicks.

    Because there's nothing more soothing than Phyllis Neffler's wacky ways and tricked out '80s garb in TBH, Renée Zellweger's sassy spunk in Empire Records, and Bill Murray in pretty much anything, we're sharing our cure-alls for any aches and pains (or sheer entertainment for downright lazy days). And like a real friend, we've highlighted our top quotes and moments, too.

    We'll leave you to it now — our inner germaphobe (possibly inspired by a recent What About Bob? viewing — all in the name of research!) is freaking out right now. Get well soon!
