DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that an early form of romantic comedies was called "comedies of manners."? This is when a rich person falls in love with a non-wealthy person. Romantic comedies are also defined as "a movie or play that deals with love in a light, humorous way." This sub-genre of romance movies is created to lessen the drama element of a certain romance movie. Different eras of romantic comedies even existed. After comedies of manners, screwball comedies took place, followed by sex comedies in the 50s and 70s, then the genre today which is the neo-traditional comedy. According to an article from Wordpress, the genre today of most romantic comedies are realistic, they have to have characters, that a modern audiences believe and serve some credibility in their lives that they can relate to when dealing with contemporary issues.

 MPAA (The Motion Picture Association of America) data shows that women are still the majority of moviegoers. From the report: “Females have comprised a larger share of moviegoers (people who went to a movie at the cinema at least once in the year) consistently since 2009. In 2013 there was a slight decrease (less than 1 percentage point) in the share of females that attended the cinema (52%) relative to 2012.” This is why romance movies and romantic comedy films are numerously produced.

    "Hard to miss when Rob Reiner directs, Nora Ephron writes, and Billie Crystal and Meg Ryan are the stars. Everybody has their favorite scenes from this iconic film and the "I'll have what she's having" often comes to mind; but for me, the split screen phone conversations between Crystal and Ryan are the best. These were patterned from the movie Pillow Talk and originated to comply with the Motion Picture Production Code. This code set moral guidelines and movies were not allowed to show a couple in bed."

    "OMG! This is the *best* movie ever! Honest! If you like old movies from the 40s and if you like Technicolor (I LOVE Technicolor!), then this is the movie you want to see. Both Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly are at the height of their beauty in this film. Clark Gable is super-masculine while surrounded by the wilds of Africa and these two gorgeous women. The story is realistic and filled with both the danger and lush beauty of the African bush."

    "Singin' in the Rain is a great movie, although I wouldn't put it on my list of all-time most romantic movies. It's highly entertaining, filled with singing, dancing, and comic misadventures as a movie studio attempts to transition from silent movies to movies with sound. The romance between Gene Kelly's character and Debbie Reynolds's character is sweet, and all ends well. You'll enjoy watching this."

The first time I watched it, I thought that it was so far ahead of it's time. The writing is wonderful, the setting is unforgettable, and it's the kind of movie masterpiece that shouldn't be missed. It sets the standard for romance movies, I don't think a better one exists."

    "My girlfriend can only get me to watch Romance movies if there is some comedy involved. So she convinced me to watch Love Actually because it was marketed as "the ultimate romance comedy". The humor was dry and the storyline was hard to follow in my opinion. If you like romance movies then this may be a better movie for you but I didn't find the movie funny at all."

Although not a character that you would normally sympathize with, Julia Roberts character is likeable in the movie and you genuinely want them to get together. Great soundtrack and the revenge at the snobby clothes store is the best scene."

    "That the best scene in a movie about Ghosts is actually a love scene tells you something. I enjoyed this movie when it originally came out and Demi Moore was in her prime but it is not something that I would go back and watch again and again. Ghost is a nice mixture of horror and humor and the stars shine in the pottery scene but that is about it."

There was just something about him that I didn't like. Julie Delpy did great and kinda helped to make up for Ethan's flaws. Overall the romance is good if you can get over the male lead."

As there is no English release, you'll want to make sure you have access to some English subtitles so you can follow along."
