So Happy Valentine’s Day to those who love “love” and all things hearts and roses, Happy Hump Day to those who feel it is just another Wednesday and to those who tend to lean towards the anti-Valentine’s Day than Happy Anti-Valentine’s Day. So I was thinking how do we celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day exactly? We first must set the mood for our evening. For some that might be a trip to the liquor store to buy that favorite wine, soda aisle for those who do not drink or juice section for those into a healthy lifestyle. Then head home find that favorite delivery number whether it is Chinese or one of those horrible “heart-shaped” pizzas the pizza chains are offering today (I mean even we can take pleasure in playing ‘Operation’ as we cut up the pizza right?) so then we sit down and watch one of these anti-love movies that I have gathered for us. These I have researched the “cream of the crop” anti-love movies so take a pick, kick back with that wine, eat that Chinese food or pizza (I suggest cutting the center out of that heart-shaped pizza to make yourself feel better) and enjoy one of these movies and celebrate your Anti-Valentine’s Day.
‘First Wives Club‘—For those who have loved and lost this movie classic starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton as the ex-wives who decide to seek revenge on the ex-husbands who decided to leave them for younger women.

‘She-Devil’—This is an old 1980’s movie starring Roseanne Barr and Meryl Streep. Ruth Patchett (Roseanne Barr) as an overweight and overtired wife and mother who finds herself single after her husband Bob (Ed Begley Jr.) leaves her for romance writer Mary Fisher (Meryl Streep). Ruth decides she wants to destroy Bob and everything he loves one ASSET at a time. She does just that as well as build herself a powerful empire. Never underestimate the power of a pissed off woman.
‘What Lies Beneath‘—So in case you think your significant other may be cheating on you this might be the movie to watch with them.
