No romance here, guys – we’re bored of all those piffly romantic movie breakup lists we’ve seen scattered all over the place. We get it, y’know – love is fleeting, heartache is awful, blah blah blah. But you know what’s even worse than losing your one true love? Losing your best friend. And so, to celebrate / mourn the demise of JLS, we’ve decided to take a look back over the top 10 most devastating movie breakups of all time. Ready your tearducts, people!
It’s a sad fact in life that, sometimes, bad trailers happen to good films.

Today marks the release of the third – the actual third – film in the Chipmunks series (whywhywhywhywhywhywhoisresponsibleforthis). Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked (we don’t see what you did there. Can someone explain the joke?) follows the Chipmunks and their girlfriends (?) the Chipettes as they go on a cruise (why?). They fall overboard and get shipwrecked (ohhhh we get it now! This film needs to die). In honour of this film’s arrival, we bring you this week’s drinking game. So hollow out a coconut, fill it with Malibu, pop in a DVD and settle down with your favourite anthropomorphised ball.

Crack out Chip and Mrs. Potts, fill your nearest Brave Little Toaster and set Etch to entertain.
