So why am I struggling to come up with movie examples of rom-coms where the bad boy is reformed through the love of the right woman? It really shouldn't be so hard!
So far I've come up with the following examples:
- Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing. The bad boy who turns out not to be so bad after all.
- Matthew McConaughey in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The heartless womaniser who finds the one woman he wants to settle down with.
- Flynn Rider in Disney's Tangled.
- Edward Cullen in Twilight.
PS: This is serious research, I promise, not just an excuse to indulge a bad boy fetish!
