    The First Wives Club is a definite. But Love Actually? I think that would make me even MORE upset after a breakup… everybody in that movie finds love, and in very romantic ways. It would totally bum me out.

  2. CityLady212 says:

    I agree Fashionista, Love Actually makes you want love even more. I think if I watched that post break up, I’d jump off the roof!

  3. FBNYC says:

    Any romantic comedy makes me so sad to watch after a breakup… like WHY? Why couldn’t that have been us? I’d much rather watch a comedy, like The Hangover, and just not even think about relationships for a little bit.

    Miss Congeniality also ends with Sandra hooking up in the end!!!! come on if we’re going to watch something after a break up there can be no love!

    I’d watch Iron Man…no romance movies for me!

    Sex and the City over and over and over again.

    Oh wait, what about movies like John Tucker Must Die… those are good!

    I must confess — I am a 42 year old woman and one of my favorite movies is “Mean Girls.” Shhhhhhh – don’t tell anybody, lol.

    9 To 5 is still a favorite of mine.

  12. jessica03 says:

    It’s funny, cause after a breakup, I would usually watch a sad movie like the notebook or what not. ha!

  13. Pie94 says:

    i just got dumped via email :( but none of these movies are a pick me up….any other sugestions?

  14. sugarpie says:

    You forgot Thelma and Louise! And G.I. Jane! Get hardcore, ladies!

    One more that’s great to watch is “Valentine’s Day.” It reminds you that not everyone is having blissful, perfect relationships. There are also two fantastic scenes: Eric Dane, shirtless (no explanation needed) and when Jennifer Garner pulverizes a pinata after finding out her bf was married.
