"Friendzone" – a hellish pit of loneliness one finds himself (or herself) when the object of his/her affections says they'd like to be friends, forever, and nothing more. For example, there's poor Duckie in Pretty in Pink or Jorah (Khaleesi's minion) on Game of Thrones... These lovestruck fools found themselves fools of the friendzone. And yes, it felt like a fate worse than death.
On this list, the victims can NOT have escaped the friendzone. That means Ross Gellar and Steve Urkel don't count – they FINALLY got the girl! On this list of sad-sacks, nobody was so lucky. Just like in real life, these characters who got friendzoned were forced to stay there forever.So here are some of the worst friendzone victims of all time. Vote up the worst friendzones in film and TV history – those pitifully lovelorn characters who just couldn't escape the dreadful words, "Let's just be friends."
- In Peter Pan, Tinker Bell doesn't take kindly to Wendy moving in on her boy-man. Pixie dust won't get you out of the friendzone, fairy girl!18343Agree or disagree?
"I don't know about a lot of things, Jenny, but I know about the friendzone." In Robert Zemeckis's, Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks's character has a love for Jenny (Robin Wright) that spans a lifetime. And, his mama (Sally Field) should've said, "Life might be like a box of chocolates, but that Jenny, she is like a box of friendzones."24687Agree or disagree?
- In the 1999 film, American Beauty, Angela Hayes (Mena Suvari) is hot for Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) – mid-life crisis and all. Of course, he's tempted, but resists the seductress, tossing her naked, petal-covered body into the friendzone. Hey girl, every rose has its thorn.14733Agree or disagree?
Probably one of the most iconic friendzone instances of all time, Duckie Dale (Jon Cryer) gets the ultimate "let's be friends" by Andie Walsh (Molly Ringwald) in John Hughes's classic, Pretty In Pink.Helpful hint: If you go by the nickname "Duckie" and wear a bolo tie, you can't really expect to get the girl. Especially when it's a young Andrew McCarthy!14633Agree or disagree?
