I think it's time we women admit something to ourselves. Actresses like Katherine Heigl, Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson are screwing us over by making movies- romantic comedies- that portray love and life like a fairy tale. We watch in awe and become entranced with the story line, when it isn't even real. Here are the ways in which rom coms are giving us unrealistic expectations.
1. The Leading Lady Lives in Luxury
Most romantic comedies take place in expensive cities like New York or Los Angeles. And yet the main actress always lives in this nice big apartment, decorated like a page from Martha Stewart Living Magazine. And they often live by themselves, without a roommate. I can hardly afford a copy of Martha Stewart Living Magazine!
