People – the big day has arrived: Valentine’s Day. While it may be all rainbows and unicorns for couples, it’s cloudy and depressing for us singletons. Or it may simply be another day for us, except we’re seeing a lot of flowers and chocolate hearts being nibbled on. While the couples are busy being in love, does this mean we can’t do anything with ourselves? Heck no! For us bachelors, the ideal date activity is to binge-watch movies!
That’s right – watching movies and munching is the ideal Valentine’s Day date for us, and we’ve got the movie list to prove it. Here are 7 movies to watch if you’re proudly single!
How to Be Single
It may be unsurprising to see this movie on the list, but if you haven’t seen it and you’re single, it’s a must-watch! The title pretty much says it all; the film follows a group of young ladies in New York City and their various means of being single. With a star-studded ensemble cast including Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, and Leslie Mann, you’ll have the time of your life watching these young women uncover new concepts about love, relationships, and being single.
The Devil Wears Prada
An iconic movie starring Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep that should go straight onto your Valentine’s Day binge list, like ASAP. If you’ve been living under a rock, The Devils Wear Prada follows Andy, who is hired as an assistant to one of the city’s most powerful magazine editors, the cutthroat and cynical Miranda Priestly. If you’re wondering why this particular film got included on the list… without giving anything away, the film concludes with the message that your peace of mind is more important than everything else.
John Tucker Must Die
If you’re looking for anything to cheer you up when you’re single, look no further than the funny teen film John Tucker Must Die. Look, if your partner is continually cheating on you, why bother being in a relationship? But would you go so far as to seek revenge on your ex? These girls, on the other hand, do! Follow their funny plan as they seek vengeance while forming an unshakable bond.
If you want a film that depicts a group of independent and strong women who successfully scam millions of dollars from Wall Street bankers while looking ultra sexy, the movie Hustlers is up next on your binge list. You’ll have the time of your life watching this film, which features a star-studded cast, including the ever-enchanting Jennifer Lopez. Watch how these women scam money from wealthy clients, which will land them in major problems.
Promising Young Woman
Promising Young Woman is another revenge tale that will most likely quench your desire for vengeance. As it deals with significant, real-life issues, it’s darker and more frightening than our previous recommendation. The goal of this film is to spark uncomfortable debates about women’s safety. It also shows how young women should be glad to be single and refuse to settle for men who provide anything less.
Birds Of Prey
Action movies have been poppin’ lately, especially those with female leads. What better way to celebrate being single than to see Margot Robbie’s stunning performance in Birds Of Prey? Harley Quinn is currently savouring her single life after her break-up with the Joker, believing that she can be happy without a boyfriend. She’s able to build friendships and form her own superwoman squad that promotes female companionship from there.
For our horror lovers, don’t feel left out, since Jennifer’s Body is the perfect movie to watch if you’re single on Valentine’s Day. A famous flick that illustrates how men should not be trusted and that getting revenge on someone who turned you into a flesh-eating succubus is only natural, Jennifer’s Body is a knock-out. Follow Needy as she tries to stop Jennifer from killing more guys before she kills her boyfriend, Chip.
