Zodiac signs by 2000s rom-com movie characters

28 March, 2021

The decade of the 2000s brought us flip phones, wraparound sunglasses, and chic sweat suits — all of which are making a comeback. Obviously it’s time for us to take a deep dive into Y2K rom coms and have a sentimental laugh.

These movies defined what love was like from 2000-2010. They even still are super relatable and make us think about romance. Now, we can connect with the movie and character from each flick that best represents our zodiac sign.

Don’t worry if your DVDs are scratched, you can stream them all.



Shanté Smith from Two Can Play That Game

Love is a sport that Aries are keen on playing, but only when they’re winning. Although Shanté isn’t a “game player” (just has a career in giving dating advice), she wants to give her boyfriend a taste of his own medicine after noticing that he’s attracted to another woman.

In order to keep him in check, she uses her sparky and fiery energy to stand her ground. Any Aries in love would do the same.



Charlotte "Charlie" Cantilini from Monster-In-Law

A Bull will do whatever it takes to make a relationship work — even if that means putting up with their mother-in-law who isn’t the nicest (to say the least). Taurus will fight till the end to be with the person they love. Charlie can’t resist partnering up with her boo, regardless of the hi-jinx his controlling mother tries to play on her. Like any Taurus, Charlie proves she’s tougher and stronger than she seems.



Andie Anderson from How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days

As you know, what you see isn’t what you get with Geminis. The same can be said about Andie, a journalist who’s doing IRL research for the article “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” She puts Benjamin through a series of tests and obstacles to see if he’ll break up with her. Unbeknownst to her, he’s playing her to win a bet. The dualistic Mercurial drama that ensues as a result is rom-com gold.



Samantha "Sam" Montgomery from A Cinderella Story

This modern retelling of Cinderella brings Sam face-to-face with her stepsisters at school and stepmother at home (also at the diner where she works). Her Prince Charming comes in the form of a popular classmate that shares anonymous emails with her and a moment at the school’s masquerade ball. Any Cancer can relate to wearing a shield (the mask worn at the dance). After all, they hide in their shell exteriors to protect their hearts.



Mary Elizabeth Cep from Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen

When Mary Elizabeth’s family relocates from NYC to the suburbs of NJ, she creates a dramatic story about her past life to make it seem more edgier than basic (sound familiar, Leo). In her effort to gain attention, she realizes that the truth is better than fiction. She also learns that the theatrics are better left to the stage. This is a sentiment every rambunctious lion can attest to. The things we do for popularity...



Sara Melas from Hitch

Virgos enjoy using their analytical minds to solve a mystery. In this flick, gossip columnist Sara Melas is looking for the elusive dating coach who helps men woo women that they are crushing on. The plot twist is that the person she’s investigating is Hitch, who she happens to be dating. The message this movie delivers is that love isn’t rational or pragmatic (contrary to Virgos ideology on the matter), it’s a tender heartfelt sentiment.



Rachel from Imagine Me & You

Anyone who’s ever dated a Libra knows that they are slow to leave a relationship and quick to start dating someone right after the partnership dissolves. This can lead to triangular situations. While Rachel isn’t looking for someone outside of her relationship with her fiancé, she falls head over heels in love with Luce. Hence, the classic Libra quandary of staying in a stale relationship for comfort or moving into something exciting persists for Rachel.



Evangeline 'Eva' Dandrige from Deliver Us From Eva

A Scorpios love is deep. They aren’t afraid to jump in and express their endless devotion to the person they care for. And, Eva is no different. All she wants is respect and admiration from her boyfriend (and the men her sisters are dating). Her feelings can come across as mean or cold, when in reality she wants to help those she loves to be happy. Surely, any Scorpio can relate to Eva’s vibe.



Alim from Touch of Pink

Sagittarius is known to be the most truthful zodiac sign. They rarely hide their inner emotions from those they care about (or anyone at all for that matter). While Alim struggles at first with speaking his truth to his conservative mother, he learns that it’s important to be honest about his relationship with Giles (his boyfriend). Not holding back and being himself is how he opts to live — regardless of the advice he’s given.



Jenna Rink from 13 Going on 30

Jenna wants to grow up and have the perfect adult life. When she wakes up transformed into a 30-year-old who has a great career and relationship, she gets nostalgic for her teenage years and bestie (who she realizes is her soul mate). This movie aligns with the mythologic Capricorn who tries to change the past through reflection.

Unlike Capricorn’s fated tale, Jenna is able to make a change in her youth that transforms her journey.



Yogesh Patel from What's Your Raashee?

Being that Aquarius is the zodiac sign associated with astrology, they will connect with the notion of finding the perfect match based on their birth charts. Aquarians lead with their head in romantic matters, which is how Yogesh approaches dating. But, he learns that feelings aren’t necessarily logical. By the end of the movie, Yogesh realizes that it doesn’t matter what someone’s raashee is. He can love anyone he wants to, no matter their sign.



Giselle from Enchanted

Like Giselle, Pisces believe in fairy tale stories that keep their dreams alive. Both tend to wear their rose-coloured glasses when it comes to life, love, and everything in between. However, when given the chance, Pisces will choose to pursue who and what makes them happy. Giselle comes to see that living in this earthly realm has its ups and downs but is glorious. She writes her own happy ending, as any Pisces would.
