There are so many romantic comedies made, but very few

There are so many romantic comedies made, but very few dramas or love stories. And with a love story, you have to take time to develop three-dimensional characters.
Gina Prince-Bythewood
I tend to play strong characters and people just assume that I would want to play romantic comedies, which I would love to do, but there are other women that do it so great and they maybe couldn’t do what I do, play the kind of characters that I play.
Carrie-Anne Moss
What I’d really like to write is a romantic comedy. This is my favorite kind of movie. I feel almost embarrassed revealing this, because the genre has been so degraded in the past twenty years that saying you like romantic comedies is essentially an admission of mild stupidity.
Mindy Kaling
I feel like I’ve done a bunch of period stuff and then a bunch of romantic comedies.
Kate Beckinsale
Usually, in romantic comedies, you end up sacrificing a great deal of the complexity – you know, just two attractive people and a good soundtrack.
Timothy Olyphant
I’m staying in my wheelhouse, not making any romantic comedies in a hurry.
Paul W. S. Anderson
I grew up on romantic comedies and love watching those films. They were, like, a real joy and a source of great pleasure and an escape.
Alice Eve
Yeah, romantic comedies are the hardest movies to make. Maybe one works a year.
Dylan McDermott
I was very influenced by the musicals and romantic comedies of the 1930s. I admired Gene Harlow and such, which probably explains why, since the end of my marriage, I’ve dated nothing but a succession of blondes.
Hugh Hefner
I don’t want to be typecast as a heroine who does a certain kind of cinema, which is why I experiment with the types of films that I do. But yes, I won’t deny that romantic love stories or romantic comedies are what I enjoy doing the most, because as an audience those are the kind of films that I like watching.
Deepika Padukone
I don’t want to be pigeonholed into doing just romantic comedies. But they’re fun, and especially for women, it’s nice to go to see them and enjoy that breath of fresh air.
Kristen Bell
I think that sometimes, romantic comedies have to be really broad, and that the plot of people falling in and out of love or whatever is not enough. ‘Enough Said’ had that stuff, but I wanted it to be fun and funny while also grounded in reality.
Nicole Holofcener
Hugh Grant is really the perfect actor for romantic comedies. Anything he does is invariably charming.
Brad Hall
Romantic comedies are usually about when love works.
Zooey Deschanel
I’d like to do ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding,’ ‘Pretty Woman,’ Meg Ryan type stuff. Romantic comedies. I’d love to do some action stuff as well.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
I wish that I wasn’t such an odd mixture. I wish I was serious, but I do love high heels and romantic comedies: being in them and watching them.
Alice Eve
Even actresses that you really admire, like Reese Witherspoon, you think, ‘Another romantic comedy?’ You see her in something like ‘Walk the Line’ and think, ‘God, you’re so great!’ And then you think, ‘Why is she doing these stupid romantic comedies?’ But of course, it’s for money and status.
Gwyneth Paltrow
It’s the contemporary woman that movies don’t know what to do with, other than bathe her in a bridal glow in romantic comedies where both the romance and the comedy are artificial sweeteners.
James Wolcott
Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock do romantic comedies. I do dark dramas. I do these movies well.
Jodie Foster
And even Moonstruck – for some reason the audience were just in the mood for a very romantic film, because it’s one of the few romantic comedies to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
Norman Jewison
In terms of the romantic kind of lead, I just never enjoy those movies very much. Maybe they’ll come to interest me more as I get older. I doubt it, but maybe. Romantic comedies tend to be, for me, an oxymoron.
Christian Bale
If you look at romantic comedies as pieces of commerce, the audience is looking for wish fulfillment.
Tom Hanks
I’ve had ideas for romantic comedies, but it would be a much more darkly comic version than what usually sells tickets.
Terence Winter
The thing you can’t let go of is gravity. The reality of gravity in writing. If someone says something really mean in a sitcom, and the next wave isn’t a reaction to the reality of that, you start losing relatability. In a lot of romantic comedies, they throw out the rules of life.
Michael Patrick King
I love romantic comedies.
Max Minghella
We ‘chicks’ have munched our popcorn while romantic comedies became just comedies, and then each female protagonist got recast for Matthew McConaughey or Seth Rogan.
Emma McLaughlin
The reason I turn down 99% of a hundred, I mean a thousand, scripts is because romantic comedies are often very romantic but seldom very funny.
Hugh Grant
I’m excited to see a new age of rom-coms, and especially teen romantic comedies, because when I was younger, I was watching ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Hunger Games’ and stuff like that. I loved those movies, but they are a little bit heavy. We didn’t really get to have the lighthearted love stories.
Shannon Purser
I always thought ‘chick lit’ meant third-person contemporary funny novels, dealing with issues of the day. I mean, it’s not the ideal term; when I’m asked to describe what I do, I say I write romantic comedies, cause that’s what I feel they are. But I’m quite pragmatic.
Sophie Kinsella
I love romantic comedies. They’re for me the easiest thing to do and the most natural to do. There’s nothing natural about holding an uzi hanging out of a moving van shooting at people. That’s not second nature to me, thank God.
Gabrielle Union
I hate love stories, personally. I’m not a fan of them. I absolutely loathe romantic comedies, with a passion, and I really worry when people use the word ‘romantic’ when they describe the film.
Gareth Edwards
The whole idea of genre and categorising films is a cri

The whole idea of genre and categorising films is a critic’s construct. For me, I just try and make stories and see where they go, but there’s nothing wrong with horror; there’s nothing wrong with romantic comedies.
Ben Wheatley
Romantic comedies are particularly hard to make.
D. B. Sweeney
Romantic comedies seem to take over where the fairytales of childhood left off, feeding our dreams of a soulmate; though, sadly, the Hollywood endings prove quite elusive in the real world.
Mariella Frostrup
I’ve heard stories about movies that are really maybe difficult and really dramatic and good, but they are being sold as romantic comedies. All it’s going to do is just… that’s hurting the work, because that just makes it impossible for anyone to see it correctly.
Shane Carruth
I’ve always loved the ’40s romantic comedies and the idea of those mistaken identities and lovers’ misunderstandings.
Pearl Cleage
3D is obviously not as suited to drama and romantic comedies. But for what I do, I felt that 3D was a very, very appropriate technology.
Paul W. S. Anderson
Since so many romantic comedies vary little in their storyline, the success or failure of such movies depends largely on whether we believe in the relationship of the protagonists.
Mariella Frostrup
I think the only thing that I really haven’t done much in, and I haven’t felt too attracted to, is romantic comedies.
Marco Beltrami
There’s a hardening of the culture. Reality TV has lowered the standards of entertainment. You’re left wondering about the legitimacy of relationships. It’s probably harder to entertain the same people with a more classic form of writing, and romantic comedies are a classic genre.
Nancy Meyers
But no, I don’t really like romantic comedies, so I don’t really care. I never go see ’em.
John Cusack
I love romantic comedies… but they have to be done right, but when they are, they’re great.
Erin Moriarty
I like watching romantic comedies and animation.
Ileana D’Cruz
I love romantic comedies. I like to watch them and I like to be in them. It’s something that’s increasingly difficult to find that spark of originality that makes if different than the ones that come before.
Julia Roberts
I never meant to be in romantic comedies; it’s just what ended up happening. But they are tricky, in a post-1960s sexual revolution way. It was easier when you couldn’t have sex scenes: everything crackled very nicely. They’re not easy.
Hugh Grant
Audiences know the form in their bones, they know that romantic comedies end in an uplifting way.
Brad Hall
As it is, I have a limited range as an actor – light comedy. I have never been a fan of romantic comedies, and yet that is what I have ended up mostly doing.
Hugh Grant
Television offered me the opportunity to do new things; I had written a lot of scripts other than scary movies. I had actually written some romantic comedies and stuff that I really wanted to try my hand at, and nobody would let me do that. Television allowed me to do anything I wanted.
Gary Sherman
People in Hollywood defer to what they know, which is a white lead, particularly in romantic comedies.
Lana Condor
Romantic comedies are backbreaking to write because they have to be fresh.
Mike Newell
I’m not a big fan of romantic comedies, believe it or not.
Kate Hudson
I love comedy, but it has to be hysterical and really amusing; I’m not really a big fan of romantic comedies, in fact I can’t stand them. I’m really more of a fan of ‘Team America’ and ‘Dodgeball.’
Rachel Hurd-Wood
I don’t like high concept movies very much, and the kind of scripts that I would occasionally get offered tended to be really high concept comedies or romantic comedies. I just don’t like it. I like much more realistic movies with actual psychology and behavior in them.
Greg Mottola
I would have loved to do romantic comedies. That’s what I think I would be best at.
Rene Russo
I love being manipulated by what I see. I love weepies and romantic comedies where you’re reaching for the Kleenex at the right moment.
Nick Cave
To be honest, romantic comedies are one of my favorite type of movies ever. I’ve seen most of them that are under the sun.
Cody Simpson
The reality of our lives is never like what you see in those romantic comedies or dramas. Things don’t always end good. Things don’t usually end good.
Andrew Haigh
I think in a lot of romantic comedies it ends with a kiss, and I feel like in modern day relationships, and maybe just my own experience, it starts with a kiss and then all sort of falls apart and then comes together. You’re texting. You’re wondering what’s going on. There’s no definitions, there’s no labels.
Elizabeth Meriwether
It seems to me that romantic comedies used to be about falling in love, but in recent years they’ve really become just comedies where the love story is only there as a spine to hang the jokes on.
Nigel Cole
I love romantic comedies. I have a deep respect for them. I think they’re really difficult to write and write well.
Rashida Jones
