Romantic Tearjerker: His Pick
From Gary Oldman chewing up the scenery as a dope-dealing crooked cop to Natalie Portman as the ingénue who falls for a middle-aged, mentally-challenged hitman who can't read, this tragic early May/late December romantic tearjerker has it all. It also somehow manages to retain its innocence despite its creepy Lolita theme (as long as you don't think about it too much). Show me the person who doesn't get a little misty during the scene where [SPOILER ALERT] Leon and Mathilda share their final goodbye before he shoots and explodes his way out of the building in which they were hiding. Leon was so close to having a real life, but he knew it wasn't meant to be - and his final sacrifice proves to be the wind beneath Mathilda's wings.
Her Rebuttal: Natalie Portman plays a 12-year-old who falls for a middle-aged mentally challenged man. I like my date night movies sans ick-factor, thanks.
You're not just missing opportunities with the opposite sex—research shows shy people are less likely to be promoted. But you can change.
