The romantic comedy genre is often maligned, and not without good reason. Wacky plot contrivances that keep the leads apart and other cliches abound in many of them. In recent years, however, I've found myself enjoying more romantic comedies than I used to, especially when they incorporate different perspectives and eschew some of those cliches.
Sure, there are some external obstacles keeping Kumali and Emily apart for much of the film's running time, but when the primary one is the weight of the expectations that Kumali's family has placed on him, it makes sense. The fairly lengthy running time (common for Judd Apatow movies at this point) works well here, too - it wouldn't make sense if Emily were to immediately welcome Kumali back into her life after [PLOT THINGS] take place. I found myself completely invested in everyone in this movie and I just wanted them to all be happy, damnit!
It also helps that the "comedy" part of the movie is excellent. One particularly awkward quoting of "The truth is out there!" had me guffawing. I highly recommend giving this a watch if you haven't already.
