“Let us consider the ludicrous nature of romantic comedy…” So begins this witty, fast-paced romp that sets out to subvert every romantic comedy convention in the book.
Mike and Virginia. Both competitive. Both film lecturers. Her speciality is romantic comedy, his is monster movies. She thinks he’s a knuckle-dragging ape, he thinks she’s an uptight cow.
All it takes is some bad advice from respective best friends and an appalling screenplay by a student called Sven Bangley to set this romance on its inevitable path. But what happens when love turns out to be the most terrifying monster of all?
