Reese Witherspoon Has A (Totally Plausible) Theory About Why The Rom-Com Felt Like It Was Dead For A Hot Minute

Movies



Reese Witherspoon slayed the big screen in her rom-com roles such as leading the cast in Legally Blonde, Just Like Heaven, and Sweet Home Alabama. But other than rom-coms you’d find in your streaming service schedule and on the Hallmark Channel, it seems like we don’t have too many of these genre flicks dominating showtimes much these days. The Oscar winner has her own theory on why the romantic-comedy genre felt dead for a hot minute, and it’s totally plausible.

As times change, the entertainment business changes with it. We used to watch movies at home through VHS tapes which changed to DVDs. By 2010, DVDs became outdated and replaced by streaming services where you can rent movies digitally or find rom-coms already available on your streaming platforms. In her interview with The New York Times, Reese Witherspoon shared her thinking about what exactly led to a downward shift in big-screen rom-coms:

When there’s a big economic shift in the media business, it’s not the superhero movies or independent films we lose out on. It’s the middle, which is usually where women live. The family drama. The romantic comedy. So I decided to fund a company to make those kinds of movies.
