Romantic comedies are one of the more popular genres of film. They’re enjoyed by many and are also a staple watch during girls nights, sleepovers, or just those days where a little bit of cheesy romance is needed. These types of films have two of the best elements of cinema: love and humor.
There are several romantic comedies out there (and in this quiz to be specific) that are classified as “teen” rom-coms because of the fact that the main characters are in high school. They still do have all of the same elements of an adult rom-com, but the romance is more subtle. A lot of these romantic comedies surprisingly have their own unique plot lines. Sometimes the two love interests were strangers prior to the film, sometimes they’re best friends, and other times they’re former lovers who end up reuniting by the end of the film. The same goes for the comedy bit in these certain movies: often times there is an additional character, perhaps a friend of one of the characters who is sarcastic and/or snarky and offers up a lot of laughs.
Select all of the romantic comedies you’ve seen and we’ll guess what your astrological sign is. Happy playing!
