Breaking Up Movies and Shows
#1
I just turned on "High Fidelity" on Hulu and this guy is breaking up with this chick and I'm wondering how often do we see the chick breaking up with the guy. It doesn't seem like it is often.

I think on the show Flea Bag-the woman is kind of the one playing the field and not commiting. THere is one example. What are others?

The first thing that comes to mind is the movie "Runaway Bride" with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere (from the late 80s or early 90s). It was a pretty good movie about a woman who kept leaving guys at the alter and quickly getting into another relationship.

Also, the tv series "Saving Grace" with Holly Hunter (who I really like) from like 10 or 15 years ago. She was involved with one man, then was seeing two at once, then broke up with one for the other, sometimes having drunken one-night-stands, etc...

And the movie "Reality Bites" -- the college student character played by Janeane Garofalo was a Gen X field-player.

I wonder if they knew they were called Gen-X in the 90's? I can't remember when I first heard that term.

I'm not certain Mirah.

But, I'm pretty sure the term "Gen-X" was coined in a book after the movie was released.

"Reality Bites" was one of my favorite movies and soundtracks back when.
