Writing a romantic screenplay is hard, but when someone wants to add a comedic performance to it, the writing gets more difficult. On the website eHow, the writers give people the instructions, tips, and warnings on writing a successful romantic comedy like Knocked Up. The writers lay out 5 steps which include a brief description of what to put in the screenplay and what order each action should be placed in the movie. The writes also give people a few tips and warnings like "Strive for having a few big comedic moments. The orgasm scene in "When Harry Met Sally" or the zipper scene in "Something About Mary" are great examples of memorable comedic moments in a romantic comedy. " This website is very helpful because it lays out the steps in a basic way that anyone can understand. It can help non-writes get a basic start on writing a romantic comedy screenplay. I think writing any thing is hard, but when someone gives instructions, it makes the situation easier.
