Rom Coms were once a wildly popular genre and though they are fewer and farther between now they still are easy, comfortable watches for many. Rom Coms, or romantic comedies are at their core love stories. Essentially in order for the movie to be considered a romantic comedy it needs to be more funny than emotional and the entirety of it needs to hinge on the love story, meaning that if we take the love story aspect out of it the movie collapses.
Rom Coms are often referred to as “chick flicks” as they are typically marketed to women, however I think men should take some notes from a few of these. I will leave you with a short list of my favorite romantic movies and romantic comedies.
27 Dresses, 10 Things I Hate About You, A Walk to Remember, and The Princess Diaries 2.
