‘The Big Sick’ a cure for the common rom-com

Written by Allen Adams

For the past few years, we’ve been hearing about the demise of the romantic comedy. “The Death of the Rom-Com” has been the central thesis of loads of lengthy thinkpieces – some more navel-gaze-y than others, but all devoted to explaining the reasons behind the genre’s impending extinction.

And then a movie comes along to remind us all that there’s plenty of gas left in the romantic tank. All it takes is someone with a compelling (and funny) story to tell or a compelling (and funny) way to tell it or – ideally – both.

A movie like “The Big Sick.”
