Top 5 Comedies That Perfectly Explain Your Current Relationship
While we can?t promise that watching these love stories will help you solve any relationship problems you might have, we?can?tell you that you?ll be able to relate to at least one of these movies about relationships.
1. Walk of Shame
Elizabeth Banks?stars in?Walk of Shame, a 2014 romantic comedy about a woman who has to maneuver her way across the city to an interview for her dream job following a one-night stand. And she does it all without her phone, ID, or money. It?s not all bad for Banks?s character, though: James Marsden plays her last-night lover, so you know that hookup doesn?t end at just one. While we wouldn?t call this a groundbreaking piece of cinema, it will make you feel relieved?because there?s no way?anyone?could have a worse walk-of-shame experience than this.
2. 50 First Dates
If you?re confused about how 50 First Dates, a very unrealistic romantic comedy about a man who resolves to woo a woman with amnesia anew every single day, can apply to your life, just stick with us here. You see, not all first dates are winners?the silly high jinks that take place in this romantic comedy are proof of that?but sometimes you can strike gold, and that makes all the effort worth it. The relationship between Adam Sandler?s and Drew Barrymore?s characters is a beautiful reminder that love can come in many, many unexpected ways.
3. You?ve Got Mail
Ever feel like Tinder or Bumble aren?t the best place to find lasting love? Yeah, we get it. All the time. We suggest watching the classic rom-com You?ve Got Mail to keep you in the game. The movie may be set long before dating apps became a thing, but it still shows that there are great people online looking for someone just like you?even if they might be trying to put your adorable little bookstore out of business. Some of those people may even be as hot and charming as Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan! (One can dream, can?t one?)
4. Meet the Parents
Meeting your partner?s family can be one of the most stressful and uncomfortable times in a relationship, but here?s one reassurance: Most parents aren?t as insane as Robert De Niro?s ex-CIA cat-loving character, Jack Byrnes. So if you?re concerned about how a meeting with the family will go, just think of this movie. After all, if Ben Stiller?s and Teri Polo?s characters, Greg and Pam, can still make a relationship work after the events of?Meet the Parents, you and your partner should have no problem at all. If a lie detector test comes out, though,?run.
5. When Harry Met Sally
You met someone that is rude, annoying, self-centered, and pigheaded?and you totally love them anyway? If that sounds familiar, we suggest watching?When Harry Met Sally, the movie that showed us all that the line between love and hate is?very?thin. This speech that Billy Crystal?s Harry delivers to Meg Ryan?s Sally sums it up best: ?I love that you get cold when it?s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you?re looking at me like I?m nuts.? I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.?
