    I like them.

    27 Dresses was good. So was 50 First Dates.

    They're unrealistic, but a light and funny escape from real life. No guy in real life is ever as romantic as they come in Rom-Coms.

    Romantic comedies are like porn for women.

    I'll second the nomination for Love Actually, despite Murkow's terse review In fact, the film's writer/director, Richard Curtis, may be as close as we have to an "auteur" for romantic comedies. He also wrote Four Weddings And A Funeral, which is stellar, and Notting Hill, which is pretty good. He and Hugh Grant (a criminally underrated actor) seem to bring out the best in each other. For better or for worse, Curtis was also a writer for the Mr. Bean and Black Adder TV series.

    Gotta side with Murkrow on Love Actually.

    Evaluated separatedly, the separate storylines vary from horribly awful to cute- together, the movie doesn't have any time to go deeply into any of them or build them past shallow ground, resulting in a poor movie overall.

    [SPOILERS]Examples-Horribly awful: Kid goes to America and gets a threesome (was this a cut scene from a different movie?)
    Merely awful: Best man/Kiera Knightley. So the way to deal with your husband's best friend having obsessive want for you is to kiss him. Because if just feels so great to be loved. I admit having not been in this situation before, but I fail to believe this is a good way to deal with this sort of problem.
    Okay: Hugh Grant, prime minister has the hots for an underling. Cute, but not that romantic by any stretch of the imagination. Hugh Grant also poorly convinces as a prime minister.
    Cute: Liam Neeson and his son (manage to narrowly escape annoying precocious movie kid syndrome)
    I also thought the Alan Rickman/Emma Thompson storyline resolution was left mostly unexplored, which disappointed me because I adore the actors.[/SPOILERS]

    I love You've Got Mail too! And have watched it a ridiculos amount of time from when it replays on television.

    Pertaining to the OP, the person I know who loves romantic comedies the most is a male InFJ. Unfortunately, I've seen his favorite one (My Sassy Girl) and this like of romantic comedies seems to stem from a zen for the "strong woman" stereotype from such movies. These "strong" women would be more correctly described as "emotionally unstable/insecure" or sometimes even "batshit crazy" in real-life. (And their "sensitive men" are more accurately condescending wimps.)

    This representation of an unhealthy relationship as something to root for is a worrisome . At least you can ignore the lack of any mental connection/getting-to-know-each-other-period problem.

    i agree that F's would like them more than T's but i don't agree on the S part. INFJ's for example are supreme romantics. it's the F function that's governing this attraction.

    For the ENFJ, love means flowers, poetry, candlelight dinners --- in other words, romance with a capital R
