6 films about being single that are actually relatable

LONDON — Being single is great. But movies about being single aren’t always that enjoyable or relatable when you’re single and ready to mingle.

SEE ALSO: I’m spending Valentine’s Day alone and I’m super chill about it Sometimes there are a few twists and turns to this formula. Take the ‘fixer upper’ movies, for example, where the girl throws out all her booze and stops her bad habits in order to make herself loveable (we’re looking at you Trainwreck ). Or the ‘best friend turns into lover’ storyline (we’re looking at you When Harry Met Sally)

Like many millions of us over the past few weeks, they took to Twitter to vent their frustration.   Read more… More about Politics , Star Wars , Entertainment , and Film

Trying to talk to family about Trump? Try these four classic movies

Ever get the feeling that we’re preaching to the choir all day, every day on Twitter and Facebook? Ever thought about a different way to reach friends and family across the aisle — through movies and TV?  With less than a month to go before Election Day, a straight-up majority of the American electorate continues to not support Donald Trump as president.
