What Would’ve Happened If These Rom-Com Heroines Had Chosen Themselves Instead Of Prince Charming
Jamie Rellis from "Friends With Benefits" (2011)
What Actually Happened: GQ editor Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and magazine headhunter Jamie (Mila Kunis) think they can sex each other up without any strings attached but, boy, are they wrong. Scared of commitment, Dylan denies his feelings for Jamie and calls her “damaged,” the third-worst thing you can call a girl besides “crazy” and “fat.” Upon overhearing this, Jamie pulls a Houdini and stops returning his calls. It isn’t until a weird photo shoot where models pose naked with various pieces of sports equipment placed strategically over their privates that Dylan realizes what a putz he’s been. He then schemes with Jamie’s mom to get Jamie to Grand Central Station so he can say “sorry” by arranging a flash mob set to the Semisonic song “Closing Time.” The apology works, Dylan and Jamie suck face, and the couple saunter off to their first formal date as more-than-friends.
What Would’ve Happened: Upset with Dylan for both questioning her mental state and ruining the “Closing Time” for her, Jamie gives him the good ole two-finger salute and marches herself right into therapy. For a really long time.
