I knew, I knew, I knew there was a reason why I detested romantic moveis.
LONDON: Planning to go for a romantic comedy with your boyfriend this weekend? Well, scrap all your plans, for according to a study, ‘rom-coms’ can ruin love lives.
The study has found that romantic comedies such as Bridget Jones’s Diary and Notting Hill give people unrealistic – and potentially unhealthy – expectations about real-life relationships. Unlikely happy endings, improbable plots and faux philosophy are to blame, they say.
Ladies, I rest my case. And please never insist I have to watch some x, y, z movie because it will make you “believe in love” again.
