I don't get this list. Half of the characters got a good ending! Louise from SATC got a fiancé and that dreadful bag (btw, why the lines are cringeworthy?), Paulette got a good guy and a baby... And Summer doesn't belong here. You should have put more characters like Karen on it. Someone who got their heart broken and really deserved better. There are so many of them!!

I actually (haha) thought the Joni Mitchell boxset was a great Christmas present. It showed that he paid attention during a previous conversation and reasoned it would be something she would have liked. Had it been any other Christmas where he wasn't cheating with her, it would have been the perfect thoughtful gift.

I read Something Borrowed thinking it was going to be at least interesting. The book was so bad. The main characters were unlikable and just wasn't a good read. Ethan was my favorite character and I always felt he deserved better.

Unpopular opinion Laura Jean doesn't deserve any better than what she is asking for. I was rooting for her we were all rooting for her and she let us down. So no, you lie with dogs and get up with fleas and don't go running back in part 3 neither

I can't watch Sweet Home Alabama anymore once I realized how unfairly Patrick Dempsey's character was treated. He was nothing but loving and supportive and she just leaves him for her problematic childhood "love"???? What the heck???

You forgot Patrick Dempsey’s character in Sweet Home Alabama. All I remember about that movie is how he was a nice classy guy and totally got the shaft without deserving it while Melanie is a horrible person.

Very surprised Patrick Dempsey’s character from Sweet Home Alabama did not make it on to this list. Not even an honorable mention. He was one of the first characters I thought of when I saw this list.

Um no, Summer is fully the bad guy in 500 Days of Summer. How you ask? Yes it was bad for Tom to become friends with benefits knowing Summer didn't want a relationship and it was equally as bad for Summer to enter into that knowing Tom had feelings for her. Bad on both their parts, but not long after their "breakup" they are both at a party and Tom sees Summer wearing a WEDDING RING! Which means she was cheating on someone else while she was fooling around with Tom. SUMMER IS THE BAD GUY!

In Legally Blonde the Musical, the final song shows Paulette singing about what all happened to her. - “And me, I think I'll find my way And hey! I married Kyle! And now we have two kids And one more on the way And we live out in Worcester I bought a new salon We also feature dog grooming Here! Take a couple cards!”

I want a Crazy Rich Asians sequel solely so I can see Astrid get her happy ending. Whether it's with another partner, or just her being fabulously single, she deserved so much more.

Something Borrowed deserved to be rewritten, it wasn’t the acting at all. It was the writing. No just no. The characters deserved better.

Summer shoudn't be on this list. She got nice things, a nice life, probably a nice husband. The hate/misunderstanding she gets is from the viewers. In the movie universe, everything seemed fine with her. We just don't get to see it that much because the movie is from Tom's point of view.
WillowProxy 26 days ago
I agree she shouldn't be on this list, but for different reasons. Summer is actually the bad guy. There is a scene set shortly after their "breakup" where Summer is wear a wedding ring at a party they're both at. That means she was cheating on someone else with Tom, but Tom didn't know. So yes she deserves all the hate she gets.

That LV bag Carrie give Louise from St. Louis looked like it had a disease. Hahaha. I remember I had taken a bunch of people to see the movie for my birthday that year and aside from the movie in general being pretty crappy compared to my beloved show, I laughed out loud at that bag. It looks like it has pimples or boils all over it.

I don’t agree with the To all the Boys part when they talk about Peter spending time with his ex and him not telling Lara. It wasn’t his secret to tell even to Lara so I don’t blame Peter at all for that.

If you do one for musical characters, one that would definitely belong on the list, is Joanne. Her loyalty is rewarded by constant cheating.

Paulette did get better. At the end of the movie you see she married that hot UPS driver she had a crush on and is pregnant. Summer got better too. She marries a guy she really loves and she no longer has to see Tom. It all worked out for her.
andrewthezeppo 23 days ago
Paulette never felt like a tragic character to me, she was a queen and ray of sunshine! She was a good person and got a happy ending!
WillowProxy 26 days ago
Summer was also a cheating bitch. There is a scene set not long after their "breakup" where she's wearing a wedding ring. Meaning Summer was cheating on someone else while she was doing her thing with Tom. Summer is the bad guy, not Tom.

Summer from 500 days of summer is and was never a manic pixie dream girl!! its so annoying when people keep referring to her as one, when the writers+directors have clearly stated that she isn't one, and is in fact a total opposite of it!

She is only one from Tom's point of view only because Tom projects that on her without her consent. The audience sympathized too much for Tom and Joseph Gordon Levitt had to point out Tom's faults.

Lauren Conrad

Between You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle, Meg Ryan is the queen of playing a woman cheating on her significant other and having audiences still root for her. lol
I mean I watched Addicted to Love quiet often and it's still entertaining even though all 4 main characters are horrible in different ways. And you kind of root for her destorying her ex' life together with Matthew Broderick's characters.

But in legally blonde Pollet ended up getting married and having a baby with the UPS guy. Often the bad experiences in life can teach you something about life or your self that'll help you be better to get the good. If she didn't confront the dick she might not have had the conference to go after the guy she wanted.

@candi0826 I'm not against romantic comedy movies, I'm against Netflix being bad at making these movies, romantic comedy movies and sitcoms are amazing but they were ruined by Netflix, and the kissing booth is one of them
candi0826 Month ago
@Daniel Jbaily romantic comedies were made for females with females in mind. Most males do not like or do not Gravitate towards them that’s all I mean. My husband would never sit there watching the kissing booth or any of the romantic comedy Netflix movies, don’t take everything so personal.
