When it comes to romantic comedies, when there is a good one, it is hardly a surprise that it becomes a blockbuster... like Pretty Woman or When Harry Met Sally.
There are so many that swing and miss and, oftentimes, they are neither romantic or funny!
When you're in the mood for a rom-com, might we suggest you avoid these 23 films as they will leave you feeling the opposite of swooning.

The Ugly Truth
One of our pet peeves about romantic comedies is when stereotypes are used instead of characterization. That is never so much the case as it is with The Ugly Truth. Gerard Butler is the ugly man and Katherine Heigl is the pretty and particular female. Skip it.
Good Luck Chuck
Dane Cook and Jessica Alba have as much chemistry as a bear and a rhino. The two are from different parts of the acting world and each should never be seen around the other. The film is painful, obscene (not that that aspect cannot be used effectively in a rom-com) and simply the utmost waste of everyone's time.
All About Steve
Sandra Bullock won an Oscar the same year that this piece of garbage came out. And we bet Bradley Cooper wishes this one was off his resume too. The two lack any kind of chemistry and the film's lampooning someone with mental issues is hardly funny, or even kosher in the slightest.
Employee of the Month
Dane Cook scores again! Well, at least he tries with Jessica Simpson in this rom-com that has us cheering for a lackluster group of big box retail store employees to get together. Seriously, who thought of this?
Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Sarah Jessica Parker is another actress who made a slew of rom-coms and most of them, sadly, were terrible. Did You Hear About the Morgans? is all sorts of wrong from the premise alone. The pair plays a married couple who have to go into witness protection and head out into the American west. Hugh Grant in a cowboy hat? I thought witness protection was supposed to hide fish out of water.
Over Her Dead Body
Eva Longoria tried to add film star to her TV star moniker and after Over Her Dead Body, one can see why she was never given the chance again to headline a film, much less a rom-com. A ghost tries to find the perfect woman for her ex? Don’t buy it. And neither did audiences.
