Ah, Valentine’s Day … no, I’m not even going to start. I actually like Valentine’s Day. I’m all for everyday gestures and kindness, but I’m also a fan of big gestures and even, sure, a little pre-scripted romance time.
People complain about VD being too contrived, but I always think: What’s wrong with more romance? (And by VD, I mean Valentine’s Day, not the other one. See? Romantic.)
But that said … there are a few things — a few movies — that I find almost too unrealistic to be romantic, and every year I’m sure to keep them off any serious chill-out, movie time plans we might have.
Usually these things strike a wrong chord for me because the characters have one of those totally unbelievable arguments about something incredibly innocuous and instead of just sitting down for five minutes and talking that crap out, it becomes a major plot point that continues to pull them apart.
This drives me batty. I can’t suspend my disbelief that much.
However, my Number One Least Realistic Romantic Movie (see No. 1 slot in show below) doesn’t actually do this. There is plenty to pull these two apart in a believable sense and yet, at the same time … well, I’ll let you decide if you agree.
So here are my Top 7 Most Unrealistic Romantic Movies from the recent era or, basically, things not to cuddle up to on Valentine’s Day.
What movie that was supposed to be romantic struck a wrong chord with you?
