the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

so they've been dating for 10 years. she's sick of him but strings him along because she doesn't have anyone else. she spends 1 week with some guy and bam, breaks it off with her boyfriend right away. the boyfriend who loves her and took care of her all these years while she slacked off and made no money. what in the fck? nobody in this forum is even talking about that. half of them are just perving on chloe moretz.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Lets be real. The boyfriends creep level was off the charts. This scenario isn't surprising.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

exactly! the creep level left no sympathy for him at all.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

You don't need to sympathize with you but you should respect him for his honesty, commitment, consistency, good faith, support, attention, effort, etc. If she thought he was creepy, she should have left him long ago. At the very least she should have broke it off better by apologizing deeply for being an insincere leach and not dropping him like a hot rock. There may not be anything likable about his character, but he did nothing to deserve that.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

That's the only thing I took away from this movie. How the hell anyone could feel okay or even sympathetic for her character is mind boggling. She's a *beep* up and the one person who seemed to put up with her *beep* (aside from her dad) gets dropped like a bad habit just 'cause she spends a week with someone who takes care of her. Terrible.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

You appear to have completely missed the point of the movie.



Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

I guess I did too then as I agree with hass_core completely.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Yes you did. The one thing I took away from the movie was how awful it was.



Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

I think its great how brutal she was to him. I cant stand these disneyesque romcoms where every ending is tied up in a little neat bow and everyone walks away happy and smiling. Sod that. This is more fun.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

He and the connected circle of friends were holding her back, she had to cut them out of her life. They were manipulating her through belittlement to kill her self esteem, a bunch of control freaks stomping all over her with no interest or regard to what she truly wanted in life.


Quit exhaling! You are contributing to global warming.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

yea totally. i guess that's what modern women call a man putting her up and paying for everything and saying sweet things to her and giving attention and taking care of her. lol what a *beep* joke.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Holding her back from what?? If anything, they were trying to get her to grow up and be a responsible adult like the rest of them. Everything she did was childish from the opening scene where she's peeking in her head disrupting her dad's business call to dancing to music while she twirls an advertising sign -- she's 30, not 15. Only to be followed by her "tweaking Buddha's nipples" (no comment) and saying inappropriate things about her friend's fiance?

All I could think of what...were we supposed to be rooting for her and what idiot writer created this person?? At least fix her by the end of the movie (shacking up with your teenage friend's 45-year-old dad is NOT a resolution to all of her issues) and don't act like the responsible adults are the ones "holding her back."

Stupid movie.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Not to mention that her big advice to a teenage girl is to talk her into stealing another girl's prom date, at prom, only to leave the other girl to (presumably) slink sadly out of joint.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

I have trouble understanding how anyone could not sympathize with her running screaming from that whole scene.

I actually thought the movie laid it on a bit thick at times with just how awful the people in her social circle were (including the boyfriend)

But if you weren't sufficiently repulsed by them (as you were clearly meant to be), perhaps it was too toned down. Oh well, I was rooting for her all the way and loved the entire movie.

Also nice to see a "small" movie like this able to wrap things up on a positive note for once; so many movies with a small budget or the slightest indie aspect these days seem to end in pretentious, depressing ambiguity.


IMDb-boards would be less confusing if people would mark their signatures clearly.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

yea her friends were annoying but explain to me how the boyfriend was? also don't forget, the boyfriend is the one paying for most of her living expenses for years.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

I think he was living in the high school group bubble. Even their wedding couldn't just be about them. He had to send it to the group. He was really marrying her because it would disrupt the group if they didn't and it was about time they did (pressure from the group!) I think he was in love with the high school Megan not the one he was with. I'm not saying he was bad or she was right or wrong, just that this is how I viewed him and their break up.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

She did say she was a snake.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Yeah and they wrapped it up too easily again (thanks Hollywood). I am sorry but no guy will fall for a cheatting FIANCEE after his wife walked out. I mean Meagan didn't even wait till her marriage soured.... warning bell.

Another example of a woman being 'misunderstood' and not just a plain out unfaithful bitch.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

Her friends deserved a cold hearted break up scene, not the boyfriend. They may have been wrong for each other but it was her fault for even letting it get that far. She lied to him for a week, cheated and then gave him the quickest breakup in history on their way to get married. Then she gets to go off and live the happy ending.

Re: the way megan treats her boyfriend is fcked up

I don't LIKE her treatment with her boyfriend, it wasn't fair. After 10 years of being together, just the moment she sees the flash of engagement ring she finds out that she doesn't want him. It's complete rubbish!
What if he didn't decide to propose for the next 5 or 7 years? She would carry on with her show and he'd wasted half of his age.
