Ever sense the creation of the movie one of Americans favorite activities has been going out to catch good flick, although not every movie is capable of making it to the "big screen". This is mainly because producers and film companies play what they think people want to see. People usually go to see a movie based on the mood or situation they are in at the time. I believe that there is a type of movie to fit almost any situation that someone could possibly be in. Over the past ten years their have been three genres of movies that have stuck out in my mind as the most played in theaters: comedy, romance and horror films.

In my opinion the most commonly played genre of movie in theaters is comedy films. I think comedy movies have been played so commonly because they are a lot of fun no matter what your mood may be. You could go see a comedy with a group of friends, family or even on a date. Examples of some very popular comedies in the past ten years are Wedding Crashers, Meet the Fockers and the American Pie trilogy. All these films have all the traits that make them the best. They have a hilarious story line with actors that greatly fit their character. Comedies are the best type of film to cheer up someone who is down.

I believe that the second most played movie genre is the romance film. These movies tell great stories incorporated with a romantic tale. Romance films have been most typically thought of as the best date movies, although romantic films are good movies for other occasions also. Two of the highest ranked romance films in the past decade are The Notebook and 10 Things I Hate About You. Though not all movies fit into a single classification, take 10 Things I Hate About You for example. It is both a romance and comedy film, which is probably one of the many reasons why it was so popular. The romance genre is usually preferred by female audiences but can easily be enjoyed by all....
