The rom com: you either love it or you hate it. There is definitely no in-between when it comes to films about running through the airport to confess your love. I've always had a weird relationship with this type of movie. I like romance as much as the next girl but can't take cheesy dialogue and fake obstacles. These movies are basically designed to make you want two people to end up together but it's painfully obvious that of course they will. That's where anti-romcoms comes in. Here are five films to watch on February 14, whether you have a Valentine of your own or not.
2. Garden State
Garden State is probably the anti-romantic comedy. I’m not ashamed to admit that I saw this movie seven times when it was in theatres. The developing romance between Natalie Portman and Zach Braff’s characters is seriously adorable, mostly because they’re both pretty messed up. You can just tell they would rather die than watch a romantic comedy. If that’s how you feel, then get in touch with your inner teen and curl up on the couch with this funny, sad indie gem.
