American comedy movies – idiocy distilled

A concept that periodically fills me with dread, wonder and frustration is American comedy movies, or perhaps just a certain subgenre of it, depending on where you draw the line.

You probably know the kind of movie I'm talking about, where the protagonist, usually a male white anglo-saxon protestant, usually around 30 years of age, is trying to woo his potential or keep his current girlfriend. And the supposedly funny part is where at crucial plot points, he act in the most idiotic ways to his target's obvious frustration.
