     I think what really defines a romantic comedy is that it's a comedy in which the central conflict, whatever it is, is based in a romantic relationship. Meaning, many comedies have romances in them. But the question the movie's asking is not about the couple. A romantic comedy asks, "Will these two people become a couple?"

     Romance which is light, which is about enjoyment of love, tends to be within the comic because that although comedy can be about the battle of the sexes, and can be about problems which are keeping lovers apart, comedy is also nice as it were... laughter and having fun is part of romance.

     There are these kind of standard moves that get observed: after there's a set-up, there's what we call a "cute meet" or a "meet cute", meaning some distinctive way that these people come together, ahh, which in my mind is usually reflective of a dynamic relationship. At the core, people who go to romantic comedies, you're preaching to the converted more often than that. These are people who believe in love. And they believe in romance, and that means unattached as well as attached. I might even say more likely you've got a lot of people who are going to these movies to have that experience to enjoy vicariously what it's like to fall in love and to meet the perfect someone.
