I’ll be honest: I’m a sucker for a good love triangle. Who isn’t? When movies end with the ideal couple together, you can find me dancing around my living room in celebration.
But some love triangles leave me disappointed and just wondering… why?! So let’s go back and figure out which love triangles ended perfectly and which ended up just plain wrong.
Let’s start with an easy one: Edward was clearly the right choice for Bella in Twilight.
But Ron ending up with Hermione from the Harry Potter series was a complete letdown, and I won’t be persuaded otherwise.
Noah and Allie were destined for one another in The Notebook.
But Katniss straight messed up by choosing Peeta over Gale in The Hunger Games.
Bridget and Mark from Bridget Jones’ Diary were the classic example of a love triangle ending with the right couple.
But Juliet kissing Mark at the end of Love Actually almost ruined the whole movie for me.
Jack was the best thing that ever happened to Rose in Titanic, and everyone knows it.
But nothing gets me more fired up than Laurie ending up with Amy in Little Women.
Kate choosing Mark over the typical popular guy made John Tucker Must Die something special in my eyes.
But Massimo was the world’s biggest sweetheart, and Mary completely overlooked him in The Wedding Planner.
Aragorn blessed us with the happiest of endings when he reunited with Arwen in The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King.
But Rachel choosing Harvey over Bruce in The Dark Knight Rises is some bullshit I will never recover from.
Mel made my heart swell when she ran to Jake on the beach during the lightning storm in Sweet Home Alabama.
But Andie did me dirty by choosing Blane over Duckie in Pretty in Pink.
Mary made me proud when she put herself first and picked Ray in Hancock.
But Jean Grey pissed me off when she kissed Wolverine in X2.
When Will and April kissed at the end of Definitely, Maybe, I legit cheered from my couch.
But Sarah leaving Peter for Aldous was a total mistake in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Deep down, Niobe always knew that Morpheus belonged by her side in The Matrix.
But Romeo and Juliet’s story was not romantic like we’ve been taught to believe (sorry Shakespeare).
Charlie displaying a self-portrait for his thesis exhibit in Those People was the perfect way to end the love triangle.
But Daisy staying with her cheating husband in The Great Gatsby confuses me every time.
