Tomorrow we'll finally be able to see what all the fuss was about. 'Blue Valentine,' Derek Cianfrance's drama featuring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams as a dysfunctional married couple watching their once strong union crumble, opens in theaters and has been through the ratings wringer. It is, by all accounts, a heartbreaking film that plays as real.

We thought chronicling other dysfunctional movie "couples" would be cool -- but the idea of finding ones that were as grounded in reality as 'Blue Valentine' seemed a little depressing for this time of year. So, we went in a slightly different and more over-the-top direction instead. Now, submitted for your approval, are seven of our favorite dysfunctional couples. Feel free to share some of your favorites in the comments section.

Beware of spoilers.
