Guess What’s Wrong With the Married Couples in These Movies?
Ever notice the abundance of movies that feature married couples who can’t stand each other or have serious issues? Revolutionary Road, Fatal Attraction and Blue Valentine all come to mind. However, Seth Rogen also noticed and said in a recent interview with Studio 360 that most movies now feature such unrealistic marriages, where couples fight all the time, and his wife, actress Lauren Miller, agreed.
“In a comedy [movie about marriage], that’s almost non-existent,” Seth says. “An actual healthy couple that really likes each other. In movies, they like to portray marriage like, ‘Oh the wife and husband are always arguing and bickering.’ For me and my wife…the easiest part of my life is my marriage. Like if everything was as smooth and easy and fun as my relationship with my wife then I would have a much easier time getting through the day. We really get along and we like the same stuff.”
So guess what’s wrong with the married couples in the following five movies? Absolutely nothing. Hollywood—more like these, please!
Julie & Julia
Why We Love It: This line: “You are the butter to my bread, you are the breath to my life.” Need we say more?
When Harry Met Sally
Why We Love It: Although they aren’t technically married until the end of the movie, you know that Harry and Sally don’t just love each other — they like each other too. And that comes in handy when faking orgasms in public. PS: It doesn’t get any sweeter than those vignettes featuring older married couples.
Why We Love It: While we don’t love the fact that this movie needs to be watched with a box of tissues handy, it does carry out the fact that being able to enjoy life with your partner is a must.
Why We Love It: Speaking of tissues… The Notebook is one of those movies on every girl’s DVD shelf, if not only for Allie and Noah’s scenes at the end — and Ryan Gosling. Let’s be real.
Father of the Bride
Why We Love It: Aside from the sweet relationship of the bride and groom-to-be, Steve Martin and Diane Keaton’s relationship is just so darn cute.
