Rom coms, chick flicks, date movies, whatever you call them they've always been something I hate. Don't get me wrong, I could sit through and even appreciate the odd romatic comedy with my girlfriends every now and then. Hungover Sunday evenings in bed with biscuits being the obvious situational choice. But as a sweeping, overarching general rule, I could comfortably say they have never been my movie genre of choice.
So why now, is every movie on my to-watch list ticking the romantic comedy box?
It does seem that the rom-com of late has evolved somewhat into a painfully awkward, identifiable, witty and touching film, starring Michel Cera.
Newest addition to this list is Paper Heart, I just watched the adorable trailer, forwarded it to a few friends, and then threw up a little in my mouth as I recalled doing the same not so long ago with Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist. Remember Juno? Sensing a pattern here? Youth in Revolt looks set to be another of the same.
