It is said that women are more often attracted to a man who is tough and rough, rude and mean, in other words, who is a ‘bad boy’. And several movies pick up this theory to tell a romantic tale. The ‘bad boy’ is often shown as someone suave, dark, aloof, but enchanting falling in love with a ‘good girl’ who comes to his rescue and helps him rediscover himself, and find true meaning of life. Now, call it stereotypical or a feel-good movie, if you still prefer to watch them, here are a few bad boy-good girl movies you can give a try:

Jason Dean (JD) & Veronica Sawyer The duo has to be one of the most dysfunctional couples the film industry has ever witnessed. Veronica is not necessarily an angel but JD is a straight up psychopath. After killing the clique leader Heather accidentally, they get a taste for revenge. Getting away with murder, they team up to take out everyone who wrongs them. As things get out of control, Veronica steps up to stop her boyfriend from doing any further heinous crimes. They are not a great couple but in the canon of ’80s teen films, they are certainly iconic.
