Elle sent me this article (which is about the failure of this summer's rom-coms to draw female viewers to theaters in large numbers) with the note: "Girl, I swear the last paragraph was written just for you." LOL!

The last paragraph:
"Women like today's bromances better than the movies aimed at them. They're funnier. They're smarter. Especially Judd Apatow's movies. He understands women. 'I Love You Man' and 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' did really well with women," [Paul Dergarabedian of] says. "We're selling women short just thinking they want traditional romantic comedies."

Yes, that's certainly always been my complaint: Hollywood not assuming hard enough that I want MORE THE HANGOVER!
