Tired of the same old movies?

We’ve all been fed up of romantic comedies at one point or another. As it’s Valentines Day we thought we’d spice things up and bring you an alternative selection.


10. Don Jon (2013)

“Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been one week since my last confession. Since last Sunday I had sexual relations out of wedlock two times. I also watched pornographic videos and masturbated seventeen times. For these, and all the sins in my life, I am sorry.”

The Apartment

9. The Apartment (1960)

“Miss Kubelik, one doesn’t get to be a second administrative assistant around here unless he’s a pretty good judge of character, and as far as I’m concerned you’re tops. I mean, decency-wise and otherwise-wise”

The Secretary

8. Secretary (2002)

“Each cut, each scar, each burn, a different mood or time. I told him what the first one was, told him where the second one came from. I remembered them all. And for the first time in my life I felt beautiful. Finally part of the earth. I touched the soil and he loved me back.”

Scott Pilgrim vs The World

7. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010)

“When I’m around you, I kind of feel like I’m on drugs. Not that I do drugs. Unless you do drugs, in which case I do them all the time. All of them.”

Gregory's Girl

6. Gregory’s Girl (1981)

“At least you’ve stopped kissing me like I was your aunty.”

Annie Hall

5. Annie Hall (1977)

“A relationship is like a shark. It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we’ve got on our hands is a dead shark.”

True Romance

4. True Romance (1993)

“Please shut up! I’m trying to come clean, okay? I’ve been a call-girl for exactly four days and you’re my third customer. I want you to know that I’m not damaged goods. I’m not what they call Florida white trash. I’m a good person and when it comes to relationships, I’m one-hundred percent, I’m one hundred percent… monogamous.”

Bringing Up Baby

3. Bringing Up Baby (1938)

“Now it isn’t that I don’t like you, Susan, because, after all, in moments of quiet, I’m strangely drawn toward you, but – well, there haven’t been any quiet moments.”

High Fidelity

2. High Fidelity (2000)

“Sometimes I got so bored of trying to touch her breast that I would try to touch her between her legs. It was like trying to borrow a dollar, getting turned down, and asking for 50 grand instead.”

(500) Days of Summer

1. (500) Days of Summer (2009)

“No! Don’t pull that with me! This is not how you treat your friend! Kissing in the copy room? Holding hands in IKEA? Shower sex? Come on! Friends my balls!”
