    People Shared Their Controversial Rom-Com Opinions, And Let Me Tell Ya, They Might Fire You Up

    Grease 2 was significantly better than the original movie — discuss!

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their unpopular rom-com movie opinions. Here are the controversial results.

    🚨 Warning: Some spoilers ahead! 🚨

    IMPORTANT NOTE: I, Kayla Marie Judith Yandoli, do *not* endorse all of these opinions. I personally believe To All the Boys I've Loved Before is the greatest thing that's happened to us in the last 15 years!

    1. Nate wasn't the bad guy in The Devil Wears Prada — he was actually a perfect boyfriend to Andy.

    2. Summer was unfair to Tom and led him on from the beginning in 500 Days of Summer.

    Fox Searchlight Pictures


    3. The Kissing Booth was actually a better Netflix rom-com than To All the Boys I've Loved Before.


    4. Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles wasn't all that attractive.

    Universal Pictures

    5. Jack and Rose would never have stayed together if he'd survived in Titanic.

    Paramount Pictures

    6. Allie and Noah from The Notebook didn't have a cute love story at all — it was honestly unhealthy.

    New Line Cinema

    7. Love Actually is the most overrated rom-com of all time.

    Universal Pictures

    8. Carrie wasn't in the wrong when she kissed Aidan in Sex and the City 2.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    9. Lucy did the right thing when she went behind Jenna's back and stole her job with their competitor Sparkle magazine in 13 Going on 30.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    10. Michael and Julianne from My Best Friend's Wedding made a perfect couple, NOT Michael and Kimmy.

    TriStar Pictures

    11. Grease 2 was significantly better than the original movie.

    Paramount Pictures

    "The music was better, the message was better, and who could resist a young Michelle Pfeiffer?! This is the hill I have chosen to die on."

    Arya Snark

    12. Queen Clarisse from The Princess Diaries was too pretentious and cared only about her own feelings.


    13. Patrick's serenade to Kat in 10 Things I Hate About You wasn't romantic — it was actually pretty creepy.

    Paramount Pictures

    15. The end of La La Land wasn't heartbreaking in the slightest.


    "It showed how the characters realistically had to make sacrifices to achieve their dreams. Sebastian and Mia were sort of in 'la-la land' themselves thinking they could go through life and everything would just work out perfectly."


    16. Elle should've given Warner a second chance at the end of Legally Blonde instead of totally blowing him off.


    17. And rom-coms are the worst movie genre ever because they're totally unrealistic.
