Don’t get mad, get a group of friends together and get even. Dumped by their husbands for younger women, three college besties team up to get revenge by any means necessary, whether it means contacting the mafia, dragging their exes to court for alimony, or just triumphantly (and drunkenly) singing a Lesley Gore song.

35. Little Black Book

If your relationship imploded from insecurity or infidelity, you’ll relate to Little Black Book. Daytime talk show producer Stacy (Brittany Murphy) researches and meets all of her boyfriend’s exes he won’t talk about, manipulating them into giving her the information he won’t. While the film’s central PalmPilot might be a thing of the past, social media has only made it easier to do a deep-dive into your person’s former flames. This is a movie about why you shouldn’t.

36. Marriage Story

The end of a marriage is hard enough without lawyers getting involved, but when money and custody are on the line, Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson star as two artists who hire vicious legal teams to hammer out custody.

37. Maggie’s Plan

Is Maggie a home-wrecker or a match-maker? Well, a little bit of both, actually. After deciding that she actually doesn’t want her lover John to leave his wife for her, she sets about getting the two of them back together, engineering her own break-up for the sake of a family, but mostly for the sake of her own conscience. If only Rebecca Miller could script everyone’s romantic troubles so neatly.

Not only is The Other Woman laugh-out-loud funny (mostly thanks to Leslie Mann’s amazing portrayal of Kate), but it’s also empowering AF. It’s about three badass women who come together to get revenge on their cheating boyfriend/husband.
