Top 10 Anti-Romances

To quality for this list, the guy and girl cannot end up together.  The reason for them not winding up together cannot be because one of them dies (The Fly, Atonement). We, the audience, should want the characters to be together.  But they just can’t be… whether it is them, society or another extraneous circumstance.  As always, I have to be a fan of the movie.

I would include something like Spiderman, but I honestly didn’t want him to wind up with Kirsten Dunst’s Mary Jane.  I couldn’t stand her.  The same goes for Margot Kidder’s Lois Lane in Superman.
