What I learned from watching When Harry Met Sally & Brokeback Mountain

When Harry Met Sally:

  1. Best friends make the best lovers.
  2. If your hero is funny, it doesn’t matter what he looks like.
  3. Happy endings are awesome.
  4. Most men think a woman always makes a lot of noise when she orgasms (men are often dumb).
  5. Chance encounters mean the universe may be telling you something (Like, hello? True love right here?)
  6. Writing witty amusing romances is awesome. Reading/watching them is also awesome.

Brokeback Mountain:

  1. Best friends make the best lovers.
  2. If your hero is a brooding, strong, sexy cowboy it doesn’t matter if he’s not funny.
  3. Tragic endings suck (make sure you have enough tissues).
  4. Most men think a woman can’t tell when he’s wishing for someone else in the sack (men are often dumb).
  5. Close encounters mean the universe may be telling you something (Like, hello? True love right here?)
  6. Writing tragedies is awesome. Reading/watching them? Not so much.

Conclusion:

Best friends make the best lovers, but because men are often dumb, if you leave it up to them, they will screw everything up and the story will end tragically. Ergo: add a woman to the mix and you will get a happy ending. Ménage rules!
