Here’s a Montage of Women Falling Down in Romantic Comedies

If we’ve learned anything about women over the years, it’s that women b’ lovin’ to shop. And shoes. …Women also love shoes. Babies, too; that’s another thing that women love. And the final thing that women b’ lovin’? Falling down in romantic-comedy-type movies.

So here’s a montage of that, starring all your favorite girl-type actors, including that chick, you know the one that we’re talking about — plus that bitch Katherine Heigl, plus Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, and a lot of Sandra Bullock, who seems to fall down in every movie that she’s ever in. Enjoy:

Ha.  WOMEN B’ FALLIN’, AMIRITE? Hilarious!

There are, I guess, two ways to look at this whole thing:

1) Someone falling down is intrinsically funny, and this is a topic that merits no further analysis.


2) As alluded to in the video, romantic comedies carry the intrinsic message that a woman can be smart, gorgeous, and funny — but unless she has a man, she’s nothing. And the best way to get a man is to let him act all manly, which is accomplished by a display of helplessness on the female’s part — i.e., collapsing on the floor and waiting for her Prince Charming to come rescue her.

Anyway, I’m going with theory number one, because OH SHIT, DID YOU SEE THAT CHICK TOTALLY GET KICKED IN THE FACE AND THEN FALL INTO THE WATER? DAMN.  …That’s some LOLZ, right there. Some major, major LOLZ. TC mark
