There are a lot of terrible relationships in movies – usually, a plot revolves around that terrible relationship. Since I’ve already shown you guys the worst boyfriends from movies, it’s only fair that I also show you the worst movie girlfriends ever.
These ladies are all really bad girlfriends for their own reasons. Maybe they nag a little bit too much, maybe they’re too selfish, maybe they’re just not very nice people. Either way, one thing’s for sure: you definitely don’t want to model your own relationships after any of theirs! Also, just a thought: why are the majority of these bad girlfriends blonde? That can’t be a coincidence. Check out the 15 worst movie girlfriends ever:
Shelby from A Cinderella StoryShelby Cummings is the most popular girl in school in this gem of a Hilary Duff movie (probably her best work after Lizze Mcguire) and she's basically a horrible person. First of all, she spends most of her time tormenting Hilary's character Sam for no real reason other than the fact that she's awful. Second of all, her boyfriend (Austin) doesn't even like her, which we can tell because he's secret pen-pals with Sam. Third, when Austin dumps her because she's so terrible, she decides to act like it never happened and everything is fine. Girl is crazy.
Regina George from Mean GirlsRegina is another example of the most popular girl in school and a blonde being a terrible girlfriend (you'll notice that's a bit of a theme here, especially the blonde part). But, really, Regina is not nice. Not only is she mean to everyone around her, but she's so nasty that you can't even understand why Aaron started dating her to begin with. He's way too good for her! Oh, and let's not forget that she spends most of the movie cheating on Aaron with Shane Oman in the projection room above the auditorium. Rude.
Sarah from Forgetting Sarah MarshallMy love for this movie doesn't change the fact that Sarah Marshall is the worst girlfriend in the world. I mean, she's dating this guy who seems really cool and really in love with her (even though he's a little whiney), but yet she cheats on him anyway with a total douche. Then she proceeds to shove that relationship in his face - yet she runs back to him as soon as she sees him happy with someone else. Oh, and did I mention that she dumped him while he was standing in front of her butt naked? Ugh. Sarah Marshall, get it together.
Taylor Vaughan from She's All ThatTaylor is the worst because she's bitchy, full of herself and thinks she can get away with whatever she wants - plus, she treats Zack really badly. Remember the beginning of the movie? She comes back from a wild spring break to tell Zack, nonchalantly, that she cheated on him with Brock from The Real World and she's leaving Zack for him. Ew. This doesn't stop Taylor from getting super jealous of Laney once she realizes Zack has feelings for her. Listen, girl, you can't cheat on the guy and then expect him to never find someone else. Get over yourself.
Summer from 500 Days Of SummerI spent a lot of time debating whether or not Summer should even be added to this list, because honestly, I think Tom is kind of the worst. But, you know what, Summer isn't really that great either. She wants a super casual relationship and makes that clear, yet she knows full well that Tom is obsessed with her - so she probably should have stayed away. Also, even after she met someone new, she continued to give Tom false hope. Summer is like that guy you've liked forever who keeps stringing you along even though he knows he can never give you what you really want. In a word? Frustrating.
Daisy from The Great GatsbyI know that Daisy was a book character way before she was a movie character, but seriously, we NEED to talk about her. I can't stand Daisy. She's the WORST and I get angry just thinking about her. Daisy is incredibly selfish and shallow and has no problem breaking Gatsby's heart simply because she would rather be with someone who can give her the security and money she feels she needs. She cheats on her husband with Gatsby, then basically rips Gatsby's heart out of his chest - and once she does that, she doesn't even bother to attend his funeral! I just can't.
Andy from The Devil Wears PradaI read the book The Devil Wears Prada way before it was a movie and so I may be holding a grudge against Andy. She is so whiney, pretentious and entitled that she makes me want to scream. But she's also a bad girlfriend and I'm not just saying that because she made work a priority - I'm saying that because she was completely insensitive and also basically cheated on her boyfriend with some book dude loser. Then she continued to expect everyone to feel sorry for her. Go away, Andy.
Meredith from The Parent TrapUgh, Meredith. Has there ever been a more annoying almost step-mother (well, yeah, but we'll get to that)? It's obvious from the beginning that Meredith is only interested in Nick's money and she has absolutely no interest in getting to know the twins. After a ridiculous camping trip in which we get to see lots of horrible things happen to Meredith, she makes the stupid decision of telling Nick it's her or his daughters. Um, who did you think she was going to choose?
Clarice Kensington from It Takes TwoClarice and Meredith are basically the same person because The Parent Trap and It Takes Two are very, very similar movies. Clarice is AWFUL. She may even be worse than Clarice. I used to re-watch this movie millions of times because Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are my soul sister and every time, I wanted to jump into my TV and strangle Clarice. Not only is it completely obvious to everyone that she is only after money, she is also horribly mean to the twins and threatens to send them to boarding school. Not cool.
Jenny from Forrest GumpI know Jenny has some serious problems from when she was a kid, but honestly, that doesn't stop her from being a total heartbreaker and life-ruiner. Jenny is not in touch with her emotions at all, she's very selfish and she can't stay in one place for too long. She strings Forrest along because he's the nicest person in her life even though she doesn't love him the way he loves her. The whole thing is actually really sad and I can't help but feel a little bit bad for Jenny.
Linda from The Wedding SingerUgh, Linda. I can't stand Linda. Seriously, she drives me crazy. Linda is horrible for many, many reasons, so let's talk about it. First of all, she is only dating Robbie because she thinks he wants to be a rockstar and she thinks that's sexy. Second of all, she leaves Robbie at the altar on their wedding day, which is just unforgivable. Third, she comes crawling back to Robbie because she's the worst. Also, she has really bad hair.
Melissa from The HangoverMelissa might not be the most terrible girlfriend on this list, but she is probably the most annoying. She's rude, nasty, nags too much and doesn't seem to care about anything but herself. She makes a huge deal about Stu going to Vegas, yet she's the one who had sex with someone else on a cruise!
Monique from She's The ManThere's no questioning the fact that Monique acts like a total brat during She's The Man. There are really no nice things about her - she's really full of herself, thinks she can do and say whatever she wants and doesn't care about manners. She's the real Sebastian's girlfriend, although no one knows why because she's awful. Also, she tells on Viola. What a baby.
Judith from Saving SilvermanIf you've never seen Saving Silverman, I highly recommend it. It's really funny and Judith is a great evil character. Judith is absolutely one of the worst movie girlfriends of all time. She's a very nasty person who, for some reason, is dating a total sweetheart. She hates his friends, who are admittedly very immature, but they (sort of) mean well. She tries to keep her boyfriend from his friends, even though she knows how much they mean to him. She basically tries to change everything about him to suit her and only her. She's controlling, manipulative and selfish. She's the girl you never want to date.
Madison from SwimfanI know Madison was technically never a girlfriend, but I had to include her because she's literally insane and really scary and no one should ever want to date her. After Ben cheats on his girlfriend Amy with Madison, Madison gets a little.. um... obsessive. She literally starts stalking Ben and Amy and doing horrible things like setting up drug tests and stealing cars. Seriously, she's out of her mind.
Which of these movie girlfriends do you think is the worst of them all? Which do you not agree with? Which terrible movie girlfriend did I miss? Tell me in the comments.
