Falling in Love Again by Stacey Abbott

Book Description

Romantic comedy has long been a mainstay of the movies, from the classic screwballs of the 1930s, through Woody Allen's 'nervous comedies' of the 1970s, to the current great Hollywood revival, featuring such movies as "Maid in Manhattan" and "Lost in Translation"; yet rom-coms have often struggled to be taken seriously.This original anthology from an international collection of contributors updates, revisits and reflects on today's romantic comedies. It considers the films and issues that illustrate the breathtaking diversity of the genre, from the queer pleasures of "Miss Congeniality" and the rom-com persona of J-Lo and Bill Murray, to high school prom-coms and indie romantic comedies. It also explores the new male-centred romances like "Wedding Crashers" and looks further afield into the healing power of romantic love in the Bollywood hit "Raji Hindustani".These themes and more are covered in a book that takes the romantic comedy seriously, while also examining the many pleasures of this continually regenerating film form.
