Oh Hollywood

Watch Every Romantic Comedy Ever In Less Than Two Minutes [VIDEO]

There’s no shirtless Matthew McConaughey in Jeff Wysaski‘s rom-com spoof, which I found a bit surprising until I realized McConaughey’s tanned, glistening torso is so intrinsic to the genre that its presence doesn’t even need to be remarked upon.

    My idea of romance is waaaaay different than Hollywood’s idea of romance.

    If she’s super hot and can’t get a boyfriend there’s probably a reason.

    Harsh but fair… Although noooo to When Harry Met Sally being in there! I object!

    I don’t think it follows those rules quite as blatantly as other “romcoms”, I think it’s far wittier and more intelligent than most of those other films AND going by that montage, pre-dates most of them! In fact I struggle to even categorise it as “romantic comedy” as I wouldn’t associate it with those starring Sandra Bullock/SJP/Jennifer Lopez et al.

    I am by no means a fan of the romantic comedy genre but I love When Harry Met Sally because I think it’s a very funny film with a really strong friendship at its core. In fact them getting together at the end is probably the thing I like least about it (but I understand why it happens and don’t actively dislike it).

    However that video is entirely true of all those other really formulaic romantic comedies (although no boy would get me into bed just by showing me one… It would probably have the opposite result!)

    I agree with Joanna, my idea of romance is different that Hollywood’s so perhaps that’s why!
