The new Debra Messing flick, The Wedding Date, is calling itself "the number one romantic comedy in America!" in its TV ads. Probably the print ads too, though I haven’t checked.
Taking a quick look at the movie listings, The Wedding Date is the only romantic comedy out right now. Boogeyman? Nope, that’s a horror flick. Alone In The Dark? Ditto. Hide And Seek? You got it. Or how about Are We There Yet? Comedy (supposedly). Or maybe Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby? Nope, that’s a Busby Berkeley-esque musical.
Maybe the commercial refers to this week. After all, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie opens today.
