Breakups are never easy no matter who initiated it and how it ended. Breakups can be tragic, heart wrenching or just straight up awkward as hell. This person who overtime has become your best friend, is now stripped from your life and you are left feeling gutted, contemplative and wanting to reach for that pint of cookie dough ice cream you’ve saved for this perfect moment of self pity.
If you are reading this and find yourself ugly face crying, popping your head in your freezer or curled in fetal position listening to Sinead O’Connor’s, “Nothing Compares To You,” stop right now and have yourself a little R&R this weekend with my top 5 romantic comedies that will get you through your epic charade of squalor and despair.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
I permit you one day to wallow like Peter. But that is it! You and Peter can cry, laugh and recite Lord Of The Rings together with this hilarious uplifting flick.
The Wedding Singer
Who else misses the classic Adam Sandler flick!? I know I do, and The Wedding Singer never gets old. Love stinks when you are with the wrong person but when its right, you will want to grow old together!
There’s Something About Mary
This hilarious Farrelly brother’s movie will no doubt get you laughing hysterically as Ted attempts to track down his high school sweetheart, Mary, in hopes of nailing down a date!
Magic Mike XXL
Yes I know this isn’t a “romantic comedy” per se, but I strongly suggest all my single ladies watch it. Who cares about plot when you have 5 half naked men dancing to “Pony.”
If you’re a hopeless romantic, this John Hughes’ classic will pull at every heart string and give you hope that your Jake is right around the corner waiting for you, maybe not next to a red Porsche, but he is out there!
