10 Anti-Relationship Movies You & Your Date Should Avoid
Love hurts it’s true, but there are so many more things to watch to make you feel good. Sure a dark and dreary movie to knock some sense into you on a single Valentine’s Day can be good, but use this list like a bomb-sniffing dog to avoid stepping on a potential land mine that could kill the mood on a date.
Jared Leto may be pretty, but not “I want to become a low-class prostitute for Japenese business men” pretty. While it’s a good movie, this is how you get your date to think heroin use is an act of love.
You may recognize everyone in this movie from the shows you watched in the afternoons as a kid, but The Rules of Attraction showcases the sad likelihood that everyone is actually in love with some one they can’t have, creating a circle of well… a lack of actual relationships.
Does love actually exist? You may not think so after this movie, you may also notice an empty seat next to you by the end of it that unfortunately won’t be filled by Ryan Gosling.
7. This is 40
Paul Rudd delivers on his usual charm and wit, however the real point this movie seems to drive home is that every long-term relationship actually sucks and those in them need to simply ignore and avoid the problems in order to keep the charade of happiness going. Deep.
If Kevin Spacey pleasuring himself and going after underage women isn’t enough to shun you and your date away from monogamy who knows what will.
5. The Break Up
Leaving you wondering why you ever moved in with that person in the first place, The Break Up has a sad plot once you get through Vince Vaughn’s trade mark ranting. Did anyone think they would stay together anyway?
Just get your heartbroken? Perfect. Going on a date? Bad move. Kill Bill can get any girl get over a guy but do you really want your date picturing how to kill you if do wrong by them?
That’s right Mrs. Doubtfire. Think about it, a movie focused on a man loving his kids so much that he creates an entire alter-ego just to see them because the courts don’t want him to. A sad reality of divorce if you break it down.
One night stands and affairs while married, Michael Douglas seems to be in every movie where spouses almost kill/actually kill eachother.
This star-studded cast shows off how awesome lying, broken trust and dishonesty can be! Not even Julia Roberts or Clive Owen’s classy accent can put your heart back together from this movie.
Do your best to avoid these movies if you’re looking to have a romantic date. Or, alternatively use this list as the definitive “Movies to Watch to Hint at a Break Up”. Okay, don’t do that, but avoid these tear-jerker flicks at all costs if you are cutting your budget on tissue.
