Betty White as grandma: The romantic comedy cliche I'd like to see

Posted on

Betty-White_l Betty White has been added to the cast of Kristen Bell’s Disney comedy You Again. She’ll play the grandmother to Bell, who stars as a woman determined to show her brother that his fiancée, her high school nemesis (The Unborn‘s Odette Yustman), is actually a mean girl. Coming off her turn as Ryan Reynolds’ grandmother in The Proposal, this makes me think that all romantic comedies are made immediately 25 percent better with her casting. I’d like to see her in every one. Agree?

P.S. I’m making this picture of her my desktop photo. It’ll be like she’s laughing at whatever profanity I yell at the screen on a bad day…
