YMMV: Runaway Bride
- Designated Hero: Both the main characters. Maggie completely humiliated and broke the hearts of men she was supposed to love by leaving them at the altar. Ike is a chauvanist and an immoral reporter who prints stories without checking facts. They first get together by kissing in front of Maggie's fiance - during a wedding rehearsal.
- Just Eat Gilligan: Why doesn't Maggie just live with her boyfriends and be done with it? Clearly, she doesn't want to be married.
- Protagonist-Centered Morality: As noted above, Ike and Maggie are pretty selfish and egotistical people. Yet because they are the protagonists, we are supposed to root for their happiness.
- Why Would Anyone Take Her Back?: Ike forgives Maggie for jilting him at the altar
