The 17 Most Unrealistic Things Women Have Done In Rom-Com Movies

Sorry to break it to ya, but not all women want to have kids!

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the most unrealistic thing women do in movies, and it turned out a lot of those things were from rom-coms. Here are the frustrating results:

1. Save the day wearing tight dresses and high heels.

2. Become drop-dead gorgeous once they take off their "hideous" glasses.


3. Rarely talk about their periods, and if they do, it's used against them.

Paramount Pictures

4. Shop or get a manicure as a way to resolve their problems.


5. Constantly have wild, unprotected sex.

6. And orgasm the second they start having sex with their partner.
