so, i've recently seen two romantic comedies, prime and the break-up. i was so disappointed. while they had funny moments, they just weren't that romantic or really funny. they were more funny because it's that painful irony you recognize from stuff in your own life and it's easier to laugh than cry.
but this afternoon turner classic movies is making up for it showing how to marry a millionaire and pillow talk. they are two of my all-time favorites. i'm spending my afternoon vegging on the couch watching these classics.
i wonder if hollywood has forgotten what makes a truly great romantic comedy, a light-hearted script and a happy ending with everyone living happily ever after. we already get the irony, the pain and a lack of happily ever after in real life, why pay for it at the movies?
