Traditionally in a romantic comedy, the storyline is meant to reflect a semi-perfect love story where two people meet and fall in love almost instantly upon first sight of each other. Romantic stories are what most people seek to experience in their own life, this generally means that the target audience for this type of film is single people aged between 13 and 21 approximately. Additionally, romantic films are frequently targeted at the female audience as stereotypically it is always the woman who is looking for love and a relationship as opposed to the man who is looking for a short ‘fling’. Conversely, when hilarity is added into the film, it instantly becomes more appealing to the male audience as well as the female. Rom-coms are sometimes thought to be less professional because of the relaxed nature of the film.
