Julia Roberts’ Rom-Com Hiatus And The State Of The Genre

Julia Roberts’ Rom-Com Hiatus And The State Of The Genre

When “Ticket To Paradise” finally opens in theaters this October, it will reunite Hollywood royalty. George Clooney and Julia Roberts will share the screen once more and in a romantic comedy, no less. As though that’s not applause-worthy in its own right, the upcoming film also marks Roberts’ grand return to the romantic comedy, as the leading lady we all know her to be. It’s hard to believe that she’s gone this long without reprising her girl-next-door persona or flashing her winning smile at an unsuspecting love interest, but it’s been 20 years since Julia Roberts last took the lead of a rom-com.
