Romantic Comedies, Hollywood to Divorce
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (DPI) - In a development that stunned the movie world,
filed for divorce from the romantic-comedy genre yesterday, citing
"irreconcilable differences." The move ended a 70-year marriage that
thought would last forever. An obviously saddened Hollywood held an
impromptu press conference on the courthouse steps to try to explain.
relationships go through a number of changes through the years," it said. "In
beginning it was great -- Thin Man, Topper, very Astaire and
were happy. Then came the comfortable years, when our mutual interest
started to fade. We spiced up our relationship with some ... well,
stuff. Harold and Maude. Even Rocky Horror Picture Show. Those
very good times."
And yet this was only a temporary remedy for an increasingly
Hollywood, which felt that romantic Comedy was not seriously trying
up its half of the relationship. "I felt it was becoming very one-
Hollywood admitted. "I found myself in bed with total strangers, like
Sandler and a bunch of other Saturday Night Live alumni. When I
issue, romantic comedy became very defensive and I knew we needed
help. We tried to recapture the old magic, but even the endearing
familiarity of something like Two Weeks Notice couldn't rekindle
flame." Hollywood said it finally realized that it had "gone to bed
Tracy and Hepburn, but was waking up with Nicholson and Bates."
Later in the day, the romantic-comedy genre would only comment, "I
that we couldn't work things out, but I believe this is best for both
I wish Hollywood nothing but the best for the future." Romantic
turned and walked away, eyes brimming with stoic tears.
