Romantic Comedy contains many clips of films dating back from the 1930's- present day. The film maker attempts to make the point that many of these Rom Coms were heterosexual and all had happy endings, some with implausible happy endings, and the LGBTQ ones have been hidden, independent, more obscure titles. Well I believe the main point here is escape. People wanted an escape from their day to day lives so they went to the movies to see a nice film, which is why many of the 1930's-50's rom coms have the happy endings they do. People must remember that it is only a movie and not real life. If you are looking for love, a relationship, you have to find it yourself. It is not going to be a fairy tale romance like in a Julia Roberts Rom Com.
