The best movies to watch after a breakup always make you feel better about your situation.

Some of them commiserate with you, because they tap into the anger, pain, hurt, or sadness you feel after breaking up with your special someone.

Others inspire you by letting you know that it's not the end of the world and things really will get better.

During that period of healing where you just want to curl up in your favorite pajamas with a carton of your favorite ice cream, you need something that makes you laugh or cry or rage.

To get you started, here are some of the best movies to watch after a breakup.

1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall

If you're looking to laugh after your personal tragedy, this is unquestionably one of the best movies to watch after a breakup.

Dear, adorable Jason Segel will have you laughing and crying along with his sympathetic character – and you'll find that you'll absolutely meet someone better.

This one's especially good to watch if your significant other cheated on you, especially since Sarah gets hers in the end.

2. (500) Days of Summer

This is such a wonderful movie, and if you're going through a breakup, I know it will help uplift you.2

Odds are likely that you'll sympathize with either Tom or Summer, especially if you were sure that you and your ex were meant to be together.

It also proves that you will get through this, even though it seems so hard in the beginning.

3. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

You should only watch this one if you want to be sort of depressed.

Actually, it's also a good pick if you'd really like to forget about your recently departed relationship.

It shows that forgetting is never the answer, because there are things you have to remember – and things you simply can't forget.

You can, however, come to terms with them, learn to live with them, and feel better as they gradually turn into memories that aren't quite so fresh and painful.
