As someone who considers herself stuck in the first half of a rom-com — as though my life is a DVD that refuses to skip over the damaged area so I never reach the montage where the positive changes happen that leads me to the happy ending — I am pretty much the target audience for Mindy Kaling’s new Fox comedy, The Mindy Project.

In her most recent column for Entertainment Weekly, columnist Libby Gelman-Waxner tackled a trio of romantic-comedies that experienced varying — and surprising? — degrees of success at the box office. Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd reunited for Wanderlust, but moviegoers yawned at their yuppies’ adventure to a hippie commune.
