We probably don’t have to tell you this, but going through a breakup is pretty much one of the worst experiences you can have in life. Even if you’re the one initiating the split and aren’t the one getting dumped, it’s still pretty rough — and getting over the relationship isn’t easy. That’s where movies to watch after a breakup come in.
But before you hunker down with some wine and resign yourself to never loving again, we’ve got a solution — a whole bunch of them, actually. You don’t have to get under someone to get over someone.

We’ve come up with a list of our 32 favorite breakup movies, from funny to inspirational and back to enlightening. We promise they’ll help. And, yes, The Notebook is absolutely part of this roundup.
