Your best friend just broke up with her partner. What movie do you bring over to get her through that first night?
Hmmm, there are a few different ways you could tackle this…
You could go with the real tear-jerker movies like The Notebook, P.S. I Love You, Les Miserables etc. but that could also be a real dick move, like adding salt, vinegar and lemon juice into a freshly opened wound, however, that could be exactly what she needs in order to get all her emotions out in one foul swoop, so she can leave it all behind when she wakes up the next day.
…unless it goes south and she tries to kill herself.
You could try to avoid the issue completely and watch a romantic comedy – but spend the whole time talking about how he’s clearly gay or interested in somebody else, and / or she’s a lesbian and secretly sleeping with his sister etc.
Just watch a total comedy to completely distract her and attempt to make her smile and laugh during a really shitty moment in her life. You can both watch Magic Mike… but skip through all the boring bits until you start seeing Channing Tatum and Joe Mangi-whats-his-name topless and start
stripping for dolla’s, y’all ‘dancing’.
Let’s be honest. there’s always gay porn. You and I both know that gay porn can be ridiculously hot, and undeniably hilarious!. Maybe don’t go for something X-rated, instead opting for something like Queer as Folk (the U.S. version though, much better than the UK version!) (or even The L Word if you’re after some girl-on-girl action) or perhaps something like Dante’s Cove which you’ve probably never heard of, but certainly quite an entertaining view.
…and by ‘entertaining’ I mean so ridiculously written, and acted, but the amount of ridiculously hot guys (who all seem to have lost their shirts…) seems to make up for it.
