Default Funny / Weird Rom Com clichés

Can you think of any weird or funny things that always happen in rom coms? .

The weirdest one for me is how stalking is portrayed as something 'cute' and 'romantic' , when the guy is clearly being disturbing and creepy .

Oh one that annoys me is you often have the beautiful girl eventually see passed the over weight or not particularly attractive but very nice guy never happens in reverse though (besides Shallow Hal but tbf as much as I love Jack Black he's not exactly a typically trim and handsome lead himself)

Yeah another one is the nice character who wears glasses getting friend zoned by the 'Attractive' person.

Oh yeah and to expand on this and also my original post, if there is a story line where the hot popular guy ends up with the nerdy unpopular girl, she's always still a stunner with the perfect body, she just lets her hair down and takes her glasses off in the end or some ****

Yeah, when it's the other way around the girl has to undergo "the makeover" to become drop dead gorgeous, rather than be loved for the way she looked before.

Like Sandy in Grease who suddenly has to wear a leotard and act the complete opposite to herself to get his attention.

he only notices the "dowdy" girl pal once she takes her glasses off, wears a dress and lets her hair down

Or when the guy arrives to quote for a skylight in the attic, in his overalls. He calls early and the woman of the house is still in her short neglige.

Anyhoo he sets up his ladders and opens the loft wood square and pokes his head and shoulders up to look. The woman whos if holding the ladder unzips his trousers and gets to work on his large d..

That montage they do to a cheery song which shows everything going well/the main character getting their life together before something goes wrong
