Trend Alert! Romantic Comedies Are Now Being Aimed at Men

Are you the type of person who adores romantic comedies yet hates movies led by female protagonists? If so, we've got good news for you! This summer, you'll be free to spend your free time in the company of actual human beings, instead of watching your worn-down copy of Say Anything in your apartment for the millionth time, for Hollywood has finally seen it fit to fill multiplexes with a number of male-driven rom-coms. About damn time, we say! From Matthew McConaughey in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past to Steve Zahn in Management, from Paul Rust in I Love You, Beth Cooper to Jo-Go Levitt in 500 Days of Summer, the theaters will be teeming with opportunities for you and your buddies to go out and crush some brewskis before secretly crying crocodile tears in the dark for 90 minutes. Now all we need is a name for this burgeoning genre of cinema. If you've got any suggestions, you know where to leave 'em!
