If Rom-Coms Were Realistic



Romantic comedies might be the best/worst genre of movies ever invented. They have this certain way of pulling on our heartstrings and single-handedly converting us into hopeless romantics. The only downside is that rom-coms completely mind-fuck us with all their unrealistic expectations. Needless to say, we at Jerk are realists, so we rewrote the hell out of some of your favorite love movies as they would play out in real life.
