Dramantic Romedy

As I type I’m watching the movie Say Anything… starring John Cusack and no one else important. It’s about a guy who is regarded as a slacker despite his good looks, wit and charm (I mean, he does wear a trenchcoat) who totally courts the shit of the high school valedictorian while her white collar criminal father cockblocks him the whole movie. The characters feel like real people and the drama feels like real drama and all in all it’s a damn good movie.

If I ever write a romantic movie, whether it be a romcom or a romdram or a mumblerom or a snuffrom I wouldn’t know where to start! The average Valentine’s Day swill that comes out these days is so formulaic that a middle schooler with a head injury could play a game of Madlibs and end up pitching the next Katherne Heigel movie. It’ll be called “When Life Gives You Lemons!” Oh, she’s so quirky when she falls down!

But that’s not enough to get the real suckers in the seats. To do that you’ve got to make mediocre romance but with magic or vampires or mummies(full circle, it’s coming.) I’m talking tweens. I’m talking about defining a generation. I’m talking about merchandising ya’ll.

A realistic romantic movie for 2012 would be based on two twenty-somethings that meet on OkCupid and their hook ups don’t fizzle out in the first month. More drama you say? She can be a breast cancer patient or something else relevant. For laughs, the guy’s best friend is also his adopted brother who -get this- is a different race and/or sexual preference than he is. “No he didn’t!” he’ll say topically.

I’m going to write a spec script for a sitcom called Missed Connections. It’ll be about a guy who makes really vague craigslist personals and just lets it ride. Yeah, that’s too good of a premise to just let go on a joke. Gotta get to writing that now…

Romedy NOW – idents

To avoid looking at the amount of time I had left on the cross trainer last evening at the gym (and consequently, burst into tears), I switched the channel to ‘Romedy Now’ and Monster in Law was just starting. This is what happened within the first 10 minutes:
JLo made a fool of herself at a party, drooling over a hot, successful, blue eyed man. He followed her and begged her to talk to him. The next day, he called her. CALLED HER (Let’s not question where he got her number from) and made a fool of himself. No wait, there’s more. He happened to run into her at the beach the following day and she of course, looked flawless and curvy, even as she walked 6 dogs. Then he went home with her. 
You do know how this would have played out in real life, right, ESPECIALLY if the girl looked nothing like JLo? 
The guy would have ignored her for days following the first awkward meeting and then even if he did call her, he would have waited for three days and then MAYBE asked her out. There is no guarantee that he wouldn’t have ignored her after the first date and left her utterly confused.
In WHAT universe is the guy as straight forward as the guy in the movie? Or am I crazy? 
Wait don’t answer that.
