Torturing Reality

Top 10 Ultimate Breakup Movies

Since I have recently gone through a break-up, I thought I would compile a list of torturous movies, so to remind the soul of these wonderful life experiences. I have gone to the internet asking on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to bring you what people consider the best in break-up movies.

10. The Holiday

The Holiday (2006) on IMDb
I love the concept of this movie, it's about two women who have been scorned by love. They decide to swap houses for the holidays. I think it's awesome that they live so far away and jump at the opportunity for that change that they need. What makes this movie magical is that both women are able to find love again.

9. 500 Days of Summer

500 Days of Summer (2009) on IMDb

8. The First Wives Club

The First Wives Club (1996) on IMDb
With an all-star cast The First Wives Club combines breaking up and the complications within marriage and relationships with a power-punch trio of Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton. They're wives who want to get even with their no-good husbands. I love this movie!

7. He's Just Not That Into You

He's Just Not That Into You (2009) on IMDb

6. Under the Tuscan Sun

Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) on IMDb
Diane Lane is charming in this movie, where she suffers through a horrible divorce and is left to pick up the pieces of her life. Her friends give her a fighting chance with an epic ticket that will change her world forever. I love this movie because it doesn't show happy ever after as having Prince Charming by your side, it shows that there are more circumstances to express love and life.

5. Diary of a Mad Black Woman

4. Bridget Jones's Diary

Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) on IMDb
What every woman wants to hear, a classic line in the movie: I like you just the way you are. These were the words that cast the spell that grabbed us all hook, line, and sinker. The movie has an amazing cast and situations that most woman can relate to as well.

3. Sliding Doors

Sliding Doors (1998) on IMDb

2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) on IMDb
I fell in love with this movie immediately. Who hasn't thought of something in our lives that we wish we could forget. But, what if we could get an entire person erased? Would we do it? This is a smart movie about the circumstances of our decisions. A must watch with or without the breakup scenario.

1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
