Rom Com Gone Awry

Rom Com Gone Awry

This “Worst” story comes from Christina Hickey. 

Several years ago, most of my friends were single after having gone through terrible breakup after breakup. We decided that this Valentine’s Day, we’d drown our sorrows in chocolate, wine, and chick flicks. My job was to pick the perfect movie that would make us pine for that unattainable leading man and sigh when the couple lived happily ever after. Stupidly, I didn’t do my research, and I selected “Becoming Jane,” which was a film about Jane Austen. As the film ended with the words “And she never married,” I almost got buried in chocolate wrappers thrown at me by my friends. Needless to say, I never picked another Valentine’s day movie ever again!
