How Do You Know Starring Reese Witherspoon Has the Formula For a Bad Romantic Comedy

How Do You Know: The Bad Romantic Comedy Formula

As we all know by now, not all romantic comedies are created equal. And most of us have probably seen enough bad rom-coms to know what separates the funny from the lame and the good characters from the bad. What still puzzles us is how top-rate A-listers find themselves cast in movies with predictable characters, stories and not many laughs. (OK, actors aren’t fortune tellers!) How Do You Know is a new movie (out here on Feb. 10) starring Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon and funny guys Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and Jack Nicholson, but sadly it’s fallen victim to harsh reviews and apparently has all the best bits of the movie in the trailer. ABC News compiled a quick vid on why we should’ve seen a rom-com miss coming our way.

Well... The 3 reasons given by ABC are quite lame. Maybe this movie is not very clever. But that does not mean it won't be funny or romantic. Let's see, shall we...
