the unbearable Hollywood romantic comedy formula


I don't mind formulas much, but I'm a little picky on which are acceptable. The one I particularly hate is that adopted by too many romantic comedies:

Now I seriously don't understand this formula thing. Maybe I'm too stupid to realise it's what audiences like, that if they go watch a movie in this genre, and find it doesn't follow the formula, they get displeasure and the movie loses money. Fuck them if that's the case! It pisses me off most especially because I tend to really enjoy some these movies, and now I have to withstand this shit, just so I can get to the good parts. So sad. I must get a life. Or I must just stay away from Hollywood romantic comedies, and risk missing out on true gems.
