Study finds romantic comedies are ruining relationships

In an Australian survey ironically intended to promote the DVD release of Valentine’s Day, half of the respondents claimed that watching romantic comedies with all their warm-and-fuzzy happy endings has ruined their idea of what constitutes a perfect relationship.
