Listening to: Dumbing Down of Love by Imogene Heap
I love RomComs, most gals do. I suspect men do too, though they may not admit it. They are the hardest scripts to write because they are so darn predictable. Boy meets Girl/Boy gets girl/Boy loses girl/Boy wins girl back. Our two protagonists have a “cute meet” and there’s usually a wedding at the end. People have spun it different ways, but that’s the gist. Inventing a new twist is very difficult, but when it works like in Wedding Crashers, it’s fabulous entertainment.
One RomCom that I particularly liked was How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. As part of their added content on the newest edition DVD, they ask an evolutionary expert and a psychiatrist why the sexes battle. Thought this was interesting…Thanks to FringeBoy for helping me with this! Enjoy the video. And some of you may recognize the evolutionary expert – hilarious!
