This is great. Thank you so much for skewering this genre.
Also, there are these godawful Ion channel Christmas movies which are just really long ads for Kay’s jewelers. If you haven’t seen any, you should watch one horror-movie style [with hands over your eyes].
They typically involve two down on their luck people: one is a good girl down on her luck, and the other is a dude in a committed, but miserable, relationship who is down on his luck.
It ends with him ditching a Cruella De Vil type girlfriend or wife to be with the “good girl”, giving her a Kay’s Jewelers ring at the end for a Christmas wedding.
