For better or worse, what movie character reminds you of yourself?

I remember the first time I watched Swingers, it was uncanny how many similarities there were between Jon Favreau's character and myself. The person I was watching the film with even commented on it.

If you haven't seen the movie, Jon Favreau plays a chump who is hopeless at meeting women. He makes an *** out of himself on so many occasions, it's really not a character you want to resemble. But I don't feel too bad about it, after reading the IMDB message boards it seems a lot of others relate to his character =)

Anyway your turn.

that's actually a really good one, completely skipped my mind. Great movie though, Adam Sandler's best IMO.

So how many sliding glass windows have you broken?

Amelie Poulain!

Maybe Gretchen from Donnie Darko.

I can't think of anyone else right now...

Ah, "Swingers" is a good movie. Also, Vaughn and Favreau were great together in "Made".

Paulie Bleeker in "Juno".

And except for the attempted suicide part, I can relate to Richie Tenenbaum in "The Royal Tenenbaums"

And yeah, I can see some of myself in Chad from the anime "Bleach" too. Other anime characters I found myself relating to were Renton Thurston in "Eureka Seven" and Miki in "Revolutionary Girl Utena".

Every movie fat guy that acts like a cowards and screws everything up for the main characters. They often sweat excessively, wear glasses and can be spotted eating large buckets of chickenwings.

I love Swingers.

Adam Sandler's character in Punch Drunk Love reminds me of me, and I hate that but I still love the movie.

the character drew barrymore plays in 'never been kissed.' she's so awkward, both socially & otherwise, & she just reminds me so much of myself all throughout school.

Mommy named me after Luke Skywalker, and I've always secretly strived towards something greater than myself.

And although I know it's not the case, I've felt like Faramir since I first saw the second movie of "The Lord of the Rings." Sometimes it seems like no matter what I do, I'll never be good enough.

At those times I like to read some of the original Conan stories. Then I feel like I can do anything!
