1. White background, wording in two colours (the proposal, the back up plan, the break-up)
2. White background - bold font, narrow font (Date Night, Leap Year, the ugly truth, definitley maybe, made of honour)
3. Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Lopez

Like the Run Fatboy Run poster, the Two Weeks' Notice one is not in English, it's Italian. So maybe they don't have the same grasp of apostrophes.

The WORST RomCom trait ever - white background, red fonts. Doing the in-house displays in my work irritates the hang out of me, 'cos I can never put the RomCom posters together as they all look like the same film!! The Ugly Truth, The Rebound, Morning Glory, Love and Other Drugs, the Heartbreak Kid *shudder*, there must just be a 'generic RomCom' button on most studios' Photoshops...

When I saw this headline on IMDb, I was sure someone would finally be torn into for using the same freaking template for like ten movies. But no! It's the horizontal panel photos with the title in the middle in thin serif font, seen in the following movies, for example:

Something's Gotta Give (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm232299776/tt0337741)
The Holiday (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm4200108544/tt0457939)
I Could Never Be Your Woman (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm998872576/tt0466839)

This one's remarkably similar:
Because I Said So: (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2412745472/tt0490084)

Same freakin' template! Could you get any lazier about your poster design? It pisses me off.

Is it just me or has Ben Affleck suddenly gone all Mr Fantastic in the poster for Forces of Nature?
