Today I am so excited to introduce a collaborative project! This month I have been chatting with Holly from Ramblings of a Fake Redhead as she has been my Solidarity Sister.  This is an initiative which pairs bloggers up for the month and assigns them a new challenge every week. It’s been a lot of fun and our month of chatting has culminated in today’s post.

Here I will be discussing my five worst ever romantic comedies and over on Holly’s blog you can read about her favourite movies with plot twists!  Let’s get stuck in shall we?

I love a good rom com for relaxing and all the happy feels.  But sometimes the movie makers get it so WRONG.  These are the films I regret watching….

Over Her Dead Body

I usually enjoy Paul Rudd films but this is one that you just wish he had refused halfway through the first meeting about it. Eva Longoria is his fiancee who dies in an accident, then subsequently haunts him and tries to sabotage his next relationship.  It’s just nauseating and even though Longoria’s character is dead, you will not have a shred of sympathy for her.

Ghosts of Girlfriends Past

Yes, there is a theme developing.  Basically, ghosts and romantic comedies do not a good movie make.  Matthew McConaughey is a bachelor who loves as many women as he possibly can, until the night before his brother’s wedding when he is visited by the spirits of previous girlfriends.  I think this is meant to be a (strange) take on A Christmas Carol and I would like to tell the person who thought it was a good idea that they were wrong.

All About Steve

If you love Bradley Cooper like I do, you may think that you should watch this film.  Let me save you the bother.  Sandra Bullock plays a kooky girl who falls for Cooper’s cameraman after one date and basically stalks him.  She follows him all over the country which is cute and endearing, right? I’m afraid not.

Rumor Has It

This movie has the ick factor nailed.  Jennifer Aniston learns that her mother and grandmother have both had affairs with the same man, and then falls for him herself.  Even though the possibility that he is her dad is raised.  Just noooo, do I need to say any more?  This is a rom com without the rom and without the com.

Suburban Girl

Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a book editor who falls for the much older Alec Baldwin.  Cue lots of embarrassing and predictable jokes and situations, like Baldwin being mistaken for Gellar’s father.  I’m not sure what the point of the film is at all!

What are the worst romantic comedies which you have ever seen?  Be sure to visit Holly and sign up to Solidarity Sisters!

    Oh, I have seen some of these and totally agree with you! I love a good rom-com, too, and am so disappointed when they end up awful!

  • The only one I’ve seen on this list is Ghost of Girlfriends Past, and I agree that it’s terrible! Looks like I won’t be watching the others, either…

  • This is a good list! While I do like staring at Matthew Mcconaughey for a few hours, I think you hit the nail on the head. I’d rather watch him in Failure to Launch or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days anyway. You’re so right about the ick factor. If a movie makes me cringe I probably won’t watch it again..

  • I wanted to love Rumor Has It because a. I love Kevin Costner and B. I love the Graduate. But I could not love it. I could not love it at all.

  • At least we tried!

  • I don’t mind seeing Matthew but the ghosts are a step too far!

  • I know, I look forward to watching one and then when it’s a cringefest I feel annoyed!

  • Definitely avoid the others, Lindsay!

  • I have actually seen “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” and “All about Steve”–yeah, not impressive. Sounds like it’s a good thing I haven’t seen the others!

  • Kimmi

    I agree with all of these!!! I am so glad that you have Rumor Has It on this one, I know so many that liked it and I was like….isn’t this just a bit….gross? LOL

  • Avoid them at all costs!

  • Yes it is gross, glad you agree!

  • You girls had such a creative way of collaborating for this post! I love it! Thanks so much for participating in the Solidarity Sisters! <3

  • It was such fun, thanks!
