As I lay in bed wondering what to watch before I fall asleep, Something light-hearted and easy to follow. How about a Romantic Comedy? Yes! Netflix’s has just released its own original movie
called ‘The Kissing Booth’, Staring Joey King (White House Down) and Jacob Elordi (Swinging Safari). A typical Rom-Com story two people fall in love Yadda, Yadda, Yadda (you know how it goes plus I don’t want to give the storyline away in case you wish to watch it). I found the storyline okay, there are issues I take with Rom-Coms one is that they are completely unreal. The lead characters are always a really pretty lady and a very attractive ripped bodied bloke. It’s never average looking people or nerdy people. Reason I say nerdy is that I am a radio nerd. I challenge you to name me one film where both of the lead characters are nerdy. The films also have a very dramatic Hollywood ending.
So I love to watch Rom-Coms, I love snuggling up and watching them. It’s very different watching them on your own, no one to snuggle up with and enjoy the film with.
With the Hollywood endings. I just wish I could have that with someone, the Hollywood ending I am talking about is when the two people realise that they are in love with each other and go on to live happily ever after. The Rom-Com stories are never about someone meeting on Tinder or a dating app and living happily ever after. I am currently single and still looking for my Hollywood Rom-Com movie.
