So, I’m watching an episode of Family Feud recently and comedian Steve Harvey asks a contestant to name the month where the most couples breakup. My immediate guess is that February would be the top answer on the board. Unfortunately other contestant playing in the fast-money round thought so too – leading her family to only accumulate around 190 or so points when all was said and done. Want to know what the top answer was? December! Yeah, they don’t make this stuff up. Or, do they? I mean that has to be one of the most depressing months of the year. Anyway, the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme: The Break-Up.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring scenes where couples decide to call it quits. Since we’ve already covered messy divorces in film, this week is all about unmarried couples…okay?! Make sure to visit the blogs of fellow Monday Movie Meme participants. Here are my selections for this week’s The Break-Up theme.
Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind
There is a breakup that occurs in this romantic Sci-Fi movie. At this time, however, I just don’t recall when or how it transpires.
