Terrible Dating Advice from 6 Supposedly Romantic Movies

The Oscars are on Sunday, so that got us thinking about all the terrible dating advice we get from movies. Here's a list of six SUPPOSEDLY romantic movies . . . and why they actually give TERRIBLE dating advice. Check it out . . .
#1.) "Grease". What it's About: A good girl falls in love with bad boy. To win each other over, the girl sheds her squeaky clean image, and the guy cleans up his bad boy act.
Why it's Romantic: Opposites attract. And the characters are willing to change their entire image to be with the other person.
Why it's Terrible: It goes against the #1 rule of dating: "just be yourself." Instead, they change EVERYTHING about their looks and personality to make themselves more desirable to the other person.
#2.) "Say Anything". What it's About: In the movie's most famous scene, JOHN CUSACK tries to win a girl back by standing outside her house at night, holding up a boombox, and playing "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.
Why it's Romantic: He's making a fool of himself in the name of love, and not caring who sees or hears.
Why it's Terrible: While that sort of thing can be romantic on screen, it's creepy, loud, and obnoxious in real life.
#3.) "Clueless". What it's About: A ditzy Valley Girl tries to play matchmaker for her friends, not realizing that she and her stepbrother have the kind of chemistry she's been searching for.
Why it's Romantic: A meaningful love connection could be right under your nose.
Why it's Terrible: The idea that you can find a date in your family tree is just wrong.
#4.) "Sleepless in Seattle". What it's About: A woman flies across the country to meet a guy she's fallen in love with after hearing him call in to a radio show.
Why it's Romantic: When it comes to love, it's okay to take chances and follow your heart, no matter how illogical it seems. (--And because there's nothing sexier than hearing a voice on the radio. Am i right? I said, am I right?)
Why it's Terrible: Flying across country, alone, to meet a total stranger who doesn't even know you EXIST? It's dangerous, and it basically makes you a stalker.
#5.) "Titanic". What it's About: An engaged high-society woman who's unhappy in her relationship meets a poor-but-caring drifter on an ill-fated cruise across the Atlantic.
Why it's Romantic: Again, the opposites attract thing. Even though the guy is a third-class citizen, the woman falls for him and betrays her image-conscious mother to be with him.
Why it's Terrible: Look, we all know her fiancé was a douche. But technically, she cheated . . . and that's not cool either. Plus, look where it got her: Knocked up without anyone to help her raise the kid.
#6.) The "Twilight" series. What it's About: A human falls in love with a vampire who can't resist the smell of her blood.
Why It's Romantic: Since *I* haven't seen any of the "Twilight" movies, I can't say for sure. But what I HEAR is that women find the movies romantic because the vampire, Edward, is passionate, protective, and embodies what a "perfect" man should be like.
Why it's Terrible: The main character, Bella, becomes completely dependent on Edward, the "love of her life", because she's insecure and thrives on his attention.
--She gives up any ambition to go to college or pursue a normal life in favor of becoming a vampire so she can spend the rest of her life with a boy she just met. And by the time she's 18, she's pregnant with a weird human-vampire hybrid baby.
