The ScrewballComedy is a very strict story form: a comedy film -- usually in black and white, although some were made in color -- in which an uptight, repressed, or [[UptightLovesWild otherwise stiff character gets broken out of his or her shell]] by being [[ManicPixieDreamGirl romantically pursued]] by a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (or a similar character type). It does ''not'' just mean "zany comedy." ''Film/TheProducers'', say, is not a screwball comedy, although it is screwy, ballsy, and very funny.
