Nobody should be outing themselves at this stage. Not even hints. C'mon, too early...

Okay, I got the wrong end of the stick. Carry on.

No it was there, but now it's not. I imagine the writer may have pulled out.

It happens on occasion.


Thanks for the clarification - I wondered if I had made up a script lol

I have just gone to read another one "My Favourite Pervert" and I can't find that either - I hope people aren't pulling their scripts because of bad reviews, the bad ones are usually the most helpful.

Warren, yes I meant my own personal spreadsheet that I started at the beginning lol sorry for the confusion.

I donít let the author affect my reviews, but I havenít even had a chance to start yet. Some unreasonable people at my job expect me to do work or something

Can I just bring something to the attention of some of the reviewers on the challenge, without attempting to open a can of worms, but rather open minds, maybe...the word ďfuckĒ being apparently out of place in a romcom.

Now, we donít all swear but swear words are in the dictionary and have been utilised frequently when it comes to romcoms: insert Four Weddings example ó> https://youtu.be/bjixdVvkfL4

The above is one example, itís not hard to find others, and letís not get started on the fake orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally, weíll be here all day. Basically, naughty words have as much a place within the confines of these scripts and this challenge as nice ones do. As weíre having a spoilertastic reveal morning (thanks for the cleanup Pia) I shall neither confirm nor deny if Iíve been picked up on dropping f bombs, but let it go when youíre reviewing these, itís not exactly review worthy comment if someone is using a naughty word or 10.

Right, back on my high horse, with helmet now firmly on,

Cam

I'm not allowed to hint which entry is mine, right? So I will say this - I think I have/have not annoyed a few people with my use/omission of the F word and variants thereof. Looking back, there were too many/too few uses of it in such a small/large space that even I thought to myself "Why the fuck did I do that?"

Curious though, do people not like the word in general? or is it purely in a Rom-com?

What a boring world weíd all live in if we couldnít swear.  I personally donít write or say as much as I use to.  It sure as hell adds colour.  Also, itís realistic.  If we never wrote swear words, what would we write if a brick fell on your foot?  One word springs to mind for me.

This seems to have been a new thing for this challenge, where Iím assuming that some members think naughty words and scenes have no place within the confines of a romcom. However, as has been shown on both sides of the Atlantic (though probably more the uk) romcoms can utilise naughty words and scenes as a humorous counterpoint to their sickly sweet nature.

Added to this, Iíve just had a talk from the former head of the BBFC, David Clarke, where he broke down at length what is offensive and what not. It wonít come as much of a shock that language has gone down the list of cinematic certification crimes a fair bit, Trainspotting saw to that in the 90s and itís 2019 now. Let it go, peeps.
