It’s January 1, the first day of the new year and the first opportunity for you to completely ignore your New Year’s resolutions. Losing weight and staying healthy are always at the top of resolution lists, so it makes sense that movies and TV shows follow the trend too. So how do some of your favorite characters stay in shape? Apparently, not so well.

'What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?': Pick the best version -- POLL

“What are you doing New Year’s Eve?” — is there any more romantic question? People do a lot of self-evaluating going into a new year, and if someone wants to spend that most hallowed of nights with you, you must be pretty special.

In 1947, musical-theater vet Frank Loesser (Guys & Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) put that sentiment to music with “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” And now that Christmas music is behind us, it’s time to move on to the New Year’s classics.

'Throwback Thursday': 'An Affair to Remember' and the perfect New Year's kiss

When I was 15, my mother decided it was time to put a little epic romance in my life by showing me the 1957 classic An Affair to Remember. I had just seen Sleepless in Seattle at a friend’s sleepover and couldn’t stop talking about it, so my mother thought it would be good for me to know where that film had gotten its inspiration. So as a young teenager then in my first “real” relationship, I watched An Affair to Remember and imagined the day I would get a New Year’s kiss like the one shared between Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. I watched as this epic romance unfolded, and suddenly, I felt like one moment could change my entire life, like I could meet my true love on the next New Year’s Eve (or the one after that).

Quick refresher: In the film, Kerr and Grant kiss on New Year’s Eve. But after realizing they’re both engaged to other people, they make a deal to meet on top of the Empire State Building in six months if they’re both still interested. I won’t spoil the rest of the story for you, but the important thing is that it all started with a perfect New Year’s kiss.
