Paying for things is like magic.


I never really like romantic comedies.  I find most of them have the same trope in them that really bothers me.  You have the girl we’re supposed to root for and the man she wants.  The man (and sometimes the girl) are in a relationship with a perfectly lovely human being that we’re supposed to dislike.  Often the man has a child that prefers the lead female to his current girlfriend for no apparent reason.  In the end the man dumps their girlfriend for the lead female.  I always feel sorry for them.

I’m reminded of this every time I hear “That’s how you know” from Enchanted.  I like the song but the movie has everything I hate about romcoms.   At least the dumped lovers get a happy ending.  I guess.
