    Default 'Romantic' films that you don't find at all romantic...

    Are there any so called romantic films that you don't find romantic at all? Here's your chance to rant.

    Sorry in advance to anyone who loves these films, I really don't want to offend you

    The Piano: Even though Michael Nyman's score is wonderful, if Harvey Keitel dared to even try perving on me, and trying to make me win back my one cherished posession through sexual favours, I swear to God, no matter how heavy it was, I would pick up my piano and smash it over his head. It'd do more damage to his head than it would my piano, and I would still be able to play it. I definitely would not fall in love with the guy, move to a lovely little cottage and begin learning to speak...(I might have learnt to do that for my little girl, who I left outside his house in the pouring rain whilst I went to have sex with some guy who I kinda just met.)

    Haha! I can't agree with you more about that movie. I spent most of it going "Okay, am I a prude or is this friggin' movie just plain skeev-tastic?".

    Most movies with the word 'romantic' in the description make me want to gouge my eyeballs and ear canals with a fork to the point I rarely bother with them anymore.

    When I was 17 a friend forced me to watch "Love Story" and I was throwing my hands up throughout that entire film. She kept saying "But wait, watch this next part!" - like suddenly I was going to change my mind and adore it. I just wanted to shake the crap out of her like "Don't you understand what a cloying piece of s*** this movie is!??!?!?".

    I've gotten harassed for my opinion of that movie, cries of 'sacrilege!' and all, but I don't care. That movie hurts my soul.

    I rarely find movies romantic, I don't even find most romcoms romantic. The movie I thought was the most romantic I've ever seen, was Sweeney Todd, and that was a musical/thriller. I mean, killing tons of innocent people as a revenge for your wife's rape and death, isn't that just romantic? But that's my weird feeling for romance.

    Most of those type of movies don't work for me on a romance level.. but I might like the actors and chemistry and total storyline.. Roman Holiday, for example. Which doesn't end on a romantic note anyways.

    Knight's Tale is awesome. Kind of romantic. I don't know if I'm sappy about his badass jousting or him getting the girl.

    Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Some women find it charming but I call it for the tripe it is.

    sigh.. I liked the Notebook.

    In fact, I teared up towards the end... When he was an old guy (James Garner). Those parts were the better parts of the film. How much of that is romantic is hard to say.. the part that got me is when she freaked out on him, and slipped back into her Alzheimer's/dementia.. and the guy just wouldn't give up on her. How can you hate that?

    I hate "Pretty Woman". I thought it was incredibly stupid. Ok, some highly educated woman is going to shop for johns on street corners? Seriously? The writers treat Richard Gere as if he's some sort of cavalier or something, but a cavalier would never have touched her. He feels free to have sex with her because he paid for it, but OH NOES! I'm falling in lovez?!

    No way. Just. No way.
