Happy Veteran’s Day! We’re back to our regularly scheduled Monday Movie Meme program, after a brief illness caused me to be out of commission last week. Years ago, I made a one-minute short comedy film about a woman whose boyfriend tests her patience when all she wants is some *ahem* extra special birthday attention.
In preparation for my re-posting of that movie on this blog, the scene has me thinking about dysfunctional couples; which brings us to the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme: A Match Made in Hell.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring dysfunctional couples. It is just a matter of time before their relationship takes a turn for the worse. Or, they surprisingly operate well together despite you shaking your head wondering how these pairings came to be in the first place. Here are my selections for this week’s A Match Made in Hell meme.
The fun loving girlfriend is all about enjoying the moment but her boyfriend is an egotistical and disgruntled employee who doesn’t know how to chill. I will be posting this movie – which I wrote and directed -- soon for your viewing pleasure.
The Best Man
I have to give props to this classic wedding movie starring Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut and many other talents – especially since “The Best Man Holiday” opens this weekend.
One of the groomsmen is dating an uptight woman who tries to control him, which reminds me of…
A dentist named Stu is in a long-term relationship with one of the most unpleasant, controlling girlfriends that I’ve ever seen in a movie.
Seems like Stu and the guy from “The Best Man” have something in common, especially since their friends are not that fond of their significant others.
Leaving Las Vegas
All arguments about everybody needing somebody aside, I doubt that the pair in this romantic drama starring Nicholas Cage comes to mind when people think of couples who are meant for each other. If the relationship between the suicidal drunken screenwriter and his hooker girlfriend isn’t dysfunctional, I don’t know what is.
Who are some of the most dysfunctional couples you’ve ever seen in a movie?
