Believe it or not, kids, there was a time not long ago when "romantic comedy" wasn't a dirty word. This was a time before the genre had been hugged to death by undercooked, by-the-numbers formula pablum. It was before imitation became the sincerest form of blathery -- when we all wanted to "have what she's having." Then, soon after the release of 2003's "Love, Actually" -- perhaps before, some might argue -- the genre became played out. That didn't stop Hollywood from half-heartedly cranking out half-baked romantic comedies, though. Nor did it stop audiences from going to see them.

Sometimes, you just need to make 14 bad movies to make a good one. Still, it’s not fun knowing that your artistic impulses haven’t been totally aligning for the last three quarters of your career.” At press time, Burton vowed that he would plow through his next six bombs as quickly … [Read more...] about Tim Burton Worried He Going Through A Bit Of A 14-Movie Slump
