About Romantic Comedies

Romantic comedy films, also known as 'rom-coms' or 'romedies', are films with light-hearted, humorous plotlines, centered on romantic ideals such as that true love is able to surmount most obstacles. One dictionary definition is 'a funny movie, play, or television program about a love story that ends happily'. Another definition states that its 'primary distinguishing feature is a love plot in which two sympathetic and well-matched lovers are united or reconciled'. Romantic comedy films are a sub-genre of comedy films as well as of romance films, and may also have elements of screwball comedies and stoner comedies. Some television series can also be classified as romantic comedies.
