I love you again, Screwball Study! Well, I'm temporarily interested in spending more time with you, anyway.

G'ah!  It's been so long since I posted.  I watch the damn movies and it would take moments to write something, anything, but I don't.  It's a mystery.  Probably obvious to all but me.  My life is like a police procedural:  I'm in it yet have no idea where it's going, but any casual viewer with the TV on background while they do the dishes can tell instantly.

Thankfully, no one is looking even that little at my life.  Not even me.  Which is probably part of the problem.

Anyway, dear Screwball Study, where do we stand?  I owe you a post about I LOVE YOU AGAIN.  I know that much.   And I'm pretty sure that a million years ago I said I was also going to write about UGLY BETTY as the Dickens of Screwball Comedies, so I owe you that too.

And probably much, much more.

But not today.

Today, just to keep the cobwebs off this site, I share with you news of another romcom deconstruction (read about the other one I wrote about here).

Romcom Descending a Staircase.

Even if THEY CAME TOGETHER proves to be no good, it will likely help get the genre somewhere better.  Eventually.

Even if it turns out that better is dead and gone.

Released: 2014
Writer: David Wain, Michael Showalter
Director: David Wain
Leads: Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd
