Hollywood Prospectus Podcast: Rom-Coms, ‘You’re the Worst,’ and ‘The Leftovers’

It’s been 25 years since the birth of the modern romantic comedy. Beginning with When Harry Met Sally… in 1989, the genre has become a launching pad for some actors and a refuge for others. In these movies we find predictable moments, heightened notions of love, and a lot of questionable outfits. And while the genre has morphed over the years, we’re still in love with rom-coms — so we’re celebrating them all week. Welcome to Rom-Com Week.

Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald talk romantic comedies, You’re the Worst, and The Leftovers.
