5 Anti-Romcoms to Watch This Weekend

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.

3. St. Elmo’s Fire

This film is a love story about best friends that celebrates and even glorifies heartbreak. It’s about being in your twenties and basically hating everything about your life except the people that help you through good times and bad. So, in other words, you can relate. Watch this movie with your squad and even turn it into a drinking game. Every time Rob Lowe looks adorable, you have to drink. So, basically, you can expect a killer hangover the next day.

4. Young Adult

Charlize Theron is amazing here as a bitter, sarcastic and jaded YA author who goes back to her hometown to try to steal back her high school sweetheart. It doesn’t go as planned, of course, and the movie changes course super quickly and has nothing to do with love. It’s about waking up one day and realizing that while your dreams did kind of come true, they weren’t the right dreams for you. Grab a glass (or bottle) of red and think deep thoughts while you watch this one.
