Romantic comedies, affectionately called rom-coms, all follow a fairly similar storyline. Two people meet; the one hates the other or both hate each other, they start liking each other, then boom! Something happens, usually through confusion or through one character deceiving the other one in some way. Will they, will they not? And then, by the third act, all is well, and the couple kisses. Their formula-like nature is what makes them comforting to look at.
We know, 99 percent of the time, we’re going to see that happy ending, even when all seems lost while we watch.
