What movies helped you get over a breakup?

Got dumped, feeling down and with little hope for the future. I'm sure the feeling will pass, but as long it's here I'd like to take my mind off of things.
What movies have you watched directly after a breakup that left you with a bit of a renowned sense of optimism? Looking for something that gets my mind off of it, and actually makes me feel better.
Not really looking for movies that directly address the subject of breaking up (Chasing Amy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Eternal Sunshine etc). I've seen a lot of breakup movies, and they always made me feel a little better about breakups from the past, but because everything is still so fresh I don't know if I'm really in the mood right now. Actually, not sure if any sot of romance is striking my fancy at the moment. But if there's one that really actually helped you immediately after one, by all means please share.
They can be any genre. I prefer newer films (after 2000) to older.
