Turtlenecks are all around us in this movie. I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in my toes.

22. The "Sarah Needs A Confidence Boost" Turtlenecks

There are hideous butterfly brooches (her character was unfortunately fond of these on several outfits) and I'm not even sure WHAT to call that pattern .... Really, there are no words, but there is one thing we can learn from Sarah: Do not wear mud-colored clothing when you are madly in love with your sexy coworker.

20. The "Daniel's Depressed" Grey Turtleneck

It is heartbreaking what happened to Liam Neeson's character. But this baggy shirt will not get Claudia Schiffer to fall in love with you.

18. The "My Friend Has Just Told Me He's Going to Wisconsin To Get Laid" Zip-Up Turtleneck Sweater

Universal

Comforting when you need to keep your sanity about you, but its reach is little more than functional.

17. The "I'm Going to Cheat On You As Soon As You Leave To Go To A Wedding" Turtleneck

Universal

As seen on Jamie's girlfriend. Plus points for oversized comforts. Minus points for the whole having-sex-with-his-brother thing.

16. The "Stripes Mean We Are Serious About Learning Another Language" Turtlenecks

Unclear whether there is scientific proof that stripes fuel brainpower, but these students in Jamie's foreign language class seemed to think so.

15. The "How Long Have You Been In Love With Karl" Pep Talk Mock Turtleneck

Universal

Suitable for moments when you're trying to figure out how long one of your employees has been in love with another of your employees.

12. The "I Am Going to Cheat On My Wife, Maybe" Black Turtleneck of Doom

Universal

Worn when Snape contemplates buying his slutty secretary a Christmas gift; black like his soul at this particular moment.

11. The "I Really Want to Watch Jamie's Proposal" Turtleneck of Hopeless Romanticism

Green is the color of love, not envy, in the case of this woman who happily marched at the front of the crowd to Aurelia's restaurant.
