Quoted from Cam Gray
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 agree. Now go @#$% yourself.

Hahaha, well you do have that rather Scottish sounding surname, Dave, that language has got to be hiding in the gene pool somewhere! Harness your inner Begbie and run with it...

Yep - they are a couple of Emily Posts (post - get it - God, I crack me up).

Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.

I've been one to mention "naughty" content in a few of my reviews.

To clarify my position just a bit: In one review, I mentioned that a singular f word felt out of place. It wasn't that it shouldn't have been there in a romcom, it's that the one line felt out of tone with the rest of the script.

In another script, I thought a scene had too much sexual content. Again, it wasn't that the content was inappropriate, it's just, in this particular script, I felt it would work better without it.

And, yes, on a few, I did feel the content was way over the top. So, I do believe that TOO much sexual content takes the romance out of the romcom.

I guess I feel like there's a middle ground in there somewhere. And, maybe since these are shorts, not features, that middle ground is a bit harder to establish.

Not sure if these very slight distinctions will make sense to anyone else, but, somehow they make sense to me.

They do.

If someone drops a curse word and I laugh - all good.

If someone drops a curse word and I empathize - all good.

If someone drops a curse word and I cringe - no good.

It'a about the context.  When someone uses profanity that yields in a laugh or empathy in terms of what's happening in a story then it works. If it looks gratuitous - it doesn't work.
