Top Three Movies with Actually Good Pick-Up Advice
Movies can teach people a lot about life. For instance, bulimic ballerinas are apparently bi-curious. You can rob a Brazilian politician using only fast cars and really hot women. And never mess with Liam Neeson’s children – it’s a bad idea.
For all these golden nuggets of life advice that Hollywood has given us, it’s a wonder that very few movies offer legitimate advice for picking up women. I mean I would try the boom box outside her window trick, but I’m pretty sure my town has a noise ordinance.
Here are the top three movies you should watch that will actually help your game.
Will Smith’s 2005 romantic comedy about a dating instructor that helps Kevin James snag a millionaire hottie has some of the best pick-up advice I’ve seen in cinema. His suave demeanor and down to earth advice is actually applicable to the real world.
One of the best lines in the movie deals with tone and body language and how 90% of communication is non-verbal. That line alone, which has been at the cornerstone of the PUA world, is more valuable than the whole batch of 80’s romance movies combined.
Although the premise is a bit farfetched, there are a few great lines from this classic Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy.
Now I don’t condone lying to women (or the Secretary of State) but, the congruency they show between their words and actions when crashing the various weddings is a lesson guys should take note. No matter what you say, it has to be in line with how you act and carry yourself.
The skills they express and charismathey exude are highly attractive traits male viewers should adopt.
As for some of their rules for wedding crashing, they aren’t as applicable to your regular sarges. The movie is, however, a great example of the relationship between wingmen and how big of a role that can play in your nightly escapades.
Donald Logue’s Steve is quite possibly the single best PUA in all of cinema. The quintessential stoner slacker, Steve is still able to attract some pretty hot women by living by a set of three simple rules: be desire-less, be excellent, be gone.
Logue’s character offers great advice as to how to stay in the moment and not care about the outcome of a situation. Also, he shows viewers how to not be try hard and act in an attractive, well-rounded manner instead.
All of these characteristics combine to make an attractive personality that is irresistible to women. If there is any movie on the list that is a must see, “The Tao of Steve” is it.
