->''"Why is it so damn hard to make a successful romantic comedy? All you need is two likable people the audience wants to see [[RidingIntoTheSunset walk off into the sunset together]] by fade-out. And yet, the {{cliche}}s that poison this genre are repeated ''ad nauseam''. Some examples: there's a sense of [[EntitledToHaveYou male entitlement]] that can often err on the side of being a {{stalker|WithACrush}}. Or the plot throws in [[ConflictBall unnecessary issues]] designed to keep the lovers apart. Or, and this is my least favorite, [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim the woman clearly should NOT be with this hideous creature]] and yet, she falls for him anyway. Filmmakers always overcomplicate what should be a simple matter and the result sinks like a lead soufflé. I'm starting to think that every rom-com is simply a remake of the awful one that preceded it."''

->''"Every romantic comedy should just be called ''Trying to Fuck''. "This week, JenniferAniston and this guy are Trying to Fuck. Next week, Jennifer Aniston and ''this'' guy are Trying to Fuck. Will they fuck? Probably. From the writer of ''Meh'' and the director of ''Neh'' comes ''Bleeeeeeeeh''."''

->''"The easiest thing at the movies is to sympathize with two people who are falling in love. The hardest thing is to sympathize with two people who are denying their feelings, misleading each other, and causing pain to a trusting heart. This is comedy only by dictionary definition.

The hardest thing is obviously intended for each other are kept apart for an entire movie, only to sympathize meet at the end. We're supposed to be pleased when they get together, I guess, although the movie ends with two people who are denying their feelings, misleading each other, and causing pain such unseemly haste that [[YankTheDogsChain we never get to experience them as a trusting heart.

->''"To call ''Life or Something Like It'' formulaic would be an understatement of the year. This movie [[ClicheStorm is so goddamn derivative I could recite every contrived plot twist and unbelievable character development]]. The comedy is flat and uninspired. And if you want to see something that will make your head explode, then watch Creator/AngelinaJolie sing an a Capella version of the RollingStones’ I Can’t Get No Satisfaction. [[SuckinessIsPainful That is a crime against humanity]]."''
