The truth about romantic comedies


You know the formula – Boy meets girl, Boy loses girl, Boy gets girl back.

The third act usually only happens in the movies.

Holly: I mean, you know why she’s marrying him, don’t you?
Robbie: The money thing? Security? A nice house? I guess that’s important to some people.
Holly: No, it’s not important to some people, Robbie. It’s important to ALL people.
Robbie: Really? Well, then I guess I’m in big trouble.

Here’s the romantic part just to keep you running in circles like an insane dog chasing his tail. I have a script idea where Say Anything ends in crashing depression, but my friend Grant says that no one would want to see it. He’s probably right.
