10 Movies That Start With A One-Night Stand
It is rare to see relationships starting with a one-night stand. However, a one-night stand is an excellent opportunity for directors and screenplay writers to start off a movie.
Here are top-10 films which begin with a no-commitment hookup, and which will also be a good reason for inviting a girl home.
#1. Before Sunrise (1995)
Two soul-mates – an American drifter Jesse and a French student Celine – encounter each other on a train to Austria’s capital. In the span of one night they roam around Vienna’s streets and by the dawn understand how much they mean to each other. Spoiler: they will do IT again.
#2. Kids (1995)
Maybe this is not the most romantic film, but it is a good reminder to use condoms when doing THIS. Ranked NC-17, this movie tells about the transmission of HIV among a bunch of teenage friends in New York in 1990s.
It starts with Telly making out with a 12-year-old girl on a bed (we don’t endorse it though). Telly is HIV-positive, and it is his hobby to have sex with virgins…
#3. Swimfan (2002)
A high school senior Ben lives a perfect life – his swim career is going up and he is dating the girl of his dreams. But one day he sees himself attracted to a school’s newcomer Madison – and she’s there to disrupt it all.
#4. Knocked Up (2007)
An ambitious journalist Alison and a stoner slacker Ben have a night out. There was little to warn of the danger ahead. But later Alison gets pregnant and a hookup turns into a lifetime one.
#5. What Happens In Vegas (2008)
Although this film isn’t much about a one-night stand but it shows us a one-night marriage. Complete strangers Jack and Joy get married after a night out in Vegas. Why? You’ll see in the movie.
#6. Going The Distance (2010)
Definitely lots of people prefer night-out stands because they give both freedom and pleasure. However, the story between Erin and Garrett ends up with emotional bonds. However, the later long distance relationship kills all the warmth.
#7. Weekend (2011)
Russell brings home Glen – to, what we call, “watch a movie” – after encountering each other in a London gay bar. Instead, they spend the whole weekend together.
#8. Trainwreck (2015)
At the start of this movie the main character Amy is reluctant to make a commitment, so she tries out hookups.
#9. Berlin Syndrome (2017)
Clare, an Australian tourist comes to Berlin and roams around, when she meets an enchanting native Andi. They move to his flat, and the following morning Clare finds herself under lock and key in his place. The guy has taken her as a captive. Now you need to find out whether she will like it or not.
#10. The Big Sick (2017)
Have you thought of going on a one-night stand after a comedy show? Kumail has. He and Emily enjoy the hookup night, after which they can’t stay away from each other.
