Each awkward scene begets more comedy than the last, and it won’t be hard to laugh away your post-breakup blues. To top it off, by the end of the film you’ll be grateful for your single status – at least you won’t have to endure dinners with hellish in-laws anytime soon!

    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.

    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.

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

  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.
