The Ten Most Preposterous Romantic-Comedy Professions

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | January 11, 2010 | Comments ()


The idea for this one came after watching the heinous Leap Year over the weekend. In it, Amy Adams plays a stager, which is actually an almost pedestrian profession for a romantic comedy, where even the most conservative, studio-safe movies give their characters weird, quirky, or outright ridiculous professions (when the leads are not in publishing or advertising).

Here are the ten most preposterous:

10. Crossword Puzzler -- Sandra Bullock, All About Steve

9. Wedding Singer -- Adam Sandler, The Wedding Singer

8. Greeting Card Writer -- Joseph Gordon-Levitt, (500) Days of Summer

7. Movie Trailer Editor -- Cameron Diaz, The Holiday

6. eBay Seller -- Catherine Keener, The 40-Year-Old Virgin

5. Veterinarian Radio Talk Show Host -- Janeane Garofalo, The Truth About Cats and Dogs

4. Interventionist -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Failure to Launch

3. Collector of Hobbies -- Rachel Weisz, The Brothers Bloom

2. Hotel Art Saleswoman -- Jennifer Aniston, Management

1. Crime-Scene Clean Up Service -- Amy Adams, Sunshine Cleaning
