Mockingjay, Part 1 Would Make A Terrible Rom-Com

Yes, The Hunger Games films involve a love triangle. There's a female protagonist that everyone roots for, and there are even a couple of fashionable sidekicks who impart wisdom and chirpy banter. But, let's get one thing straight: This is most definitely not a chick flick or rom-com.
And, thank goodness for that because, frankly, the remixed trailer for Mockingjay, Part 1 that debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live is pretty terrible. For starters, the new title is Cupid's Arrow — something even Katherine Heigl wouldn't touch with a 10-foot pole.
Speaking of Heigl, Kimmel's parody includes a fake cameo by the chick flick queen. There's also lots of lovelorn gazing at Peeta and Gale and metaphors about arrows. Thanks, guys, but we'll stick with the original, non-treacly version.
While we're on the subject of rom-coms, though, feel free to take on Liam Neeson's latest or your pick of Marvel movies, Jimbo. Surely you're not just picking on poor Katniss because she's a female, right?
