Some gentleman woo their on-screen counterparts by presenting them with flowers or thrusting boomboxes playing Peter Gabriel above their heads. On the more rare occasion, however, they'll get a woman's attention by threatening to rape her.

Such is the case in Jersey enthusiast Todd Solondz's 1995 dark comedy Welcome to the Dollhouse, in which middle school bully Brandon McCarthy (Brendan Sexton III) not only attempts the above with protagonist Dawn Weiner (Heather Matarazzo), but proceeds to take it one step further by sketchily calling her house and assigning her a designated time and place to get defiled. Even creepier? She shows up. That's when their love really begins to bloom.
