UK rep'd by rom-coms?

A comment following the article at raises an interesting issue:

I am always touched that people from overseas want to associate romance with us despite our appalling dentistry and somewhat random attempts at hygiene. The popularity of the Romcom may also go some way to making up for a number of our other recent exports to the world including drunkenness on an industrial scale, armed conflict, and the hairstyles of the 1970?s, which if my recent experience is to be believed, are still a regular fashion feature in a number of East German towns.
The Romcom is a universal scream of hope that one day things will get better. It is a hope that the future is not all gurning politicans, old age, death and taxes.
