There are many ideas in this world that you can turn into separate categories. Examples are types of teachers, types of books, and more. In this essay the reader will be able to learn the differences between three types of movies. These types of movies include, romance, horror, and comedy. Now, there are many upon many romance movies but how do we distinguish them from one another? Is it the sex scenes, the lovey dovey affections we see between the characters? We cannot know for sure.

Chief among the constant elements of the plot are the Christmas theme, idea of imagination, and the importance of family.

When Michael was going to make a "citizens arrest" at the banks, there was comedy there, sort of like sarcasm which is known to sway a person's thoughts if it is funnier in the sense.
