10 years of Flick Filosopher: railing against unromantic not-comedies

There are lots of reasons why I can’t abide what passes for a romantic comedy these days. From my review of Head Over Heels and The Wedding Planner:

So this is the state of romantic comedy these days: it isn’t romantic and it isn’t funny, unless, perhaps, you’re a 12-year-old girl for whom swooning over totally gorgeous guys is a new thing and totally planning your totally romantic wedding is your hobby. Where are the romantic comedies for grownups — you know, like they used to make ’em? Where is the flirty banter? Where is the sexual tension? Where have all the Cary Grants and Katherine Hepburns gone?
