There is such a fine line between being romantic and really creepy. Personally, I think following a girl's every steps and taking candid photos of her is a nice thing to do, but apparently the judicial system thinks otherwise...

Romantic movies are full of moments that, far from being romantic, are actually really weird and unsettling. Here are 5 of the worst offenders.

1. Love, Actually

Awww... he's written loads of cue cards to explain his love for his best friend's wife! That's cute!

No, its not! It's really creepy. It's the actions of a dangerous sociopath. I mean, what would have happened if her hubby answered the door? He would have looked like a crazed stalker who carried around pre-written declarations of love with him. Instead this happened...

If I was her, I'd be running in the opposite direction.


2. Love, Actually (again)

And while we're on Love, Actually: Letting your young child run through an airport security terminal during a time of increased fear of international terrorism is dumb.

It's not romantic. It's dumb.

You're lucky you didn't get the shit kicked out of you by a burly security guard, kid.


3. The Notebook

Aww, The Notebook! The lovely movie were Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams make out in the rain...

And in a house...

And in the surf...

But how did he get to this point? Well, by threatening to commit suicide. He hung from a Ferris Wheel and threatened to KILL or SERIOUS HURT HIMSELF unless she went on a date with him.

And it worked! Instead of reporting Gosling to a psychiatric institution she ends up going out and playing tonsil hockey with him. Absolutely insane.


4. 50 First Dates

50 First Dates is the story of a young woman who can no longer form short-term memories, but is nonetheless wooed by Adam Sandler...

This means everyday she wakes up having forgot her life. To get around this Sandler devises a method previously utilized solely by serial killers. He leaves a creepy tape...

One which starts with a terrifying opening line...

She then discovers she's essentially been abducted, has a CHILD and is adrift at sea with no escape. She then leaves her room to find Sandler menacingly singing a song...

Chilling stuff...


5. Twilight

Yeah, you knew it was coming. Twilight is the bizarre story of love between a naive teenager and vampire who is over 100 years old. Sure, he still looks hot with his nice shirts and snazzy hair, but this is a seriously old dude.

When he was born, women weren't even allowed to vote! Perhaps this explains why he acts so weird around them. He basically stalked Bella for a period, whilst simultaneously resisting the urge to murder her for her life-giving blood... Yeah, that's romantic...

He scrambles her mind so much that after about 3 weeks of flirting she's prepared to become an UNDEAD MONSTER for him... for eternity! I mean, there's obviously some kind of deep-seated Stockholm Syndrome-esque psychosis going on here...

I mean he say's creepy stuff like this:

She looks terrified. Quick someone call Chris Hansen.
