As a follow up on the previous "Life" post, I'd like to comment that in living your life as a movie, some genres are easier to replicate than others.
For example, comedy is relatively simple. Funny/odd stuff happens all the time. People are always laughing at outrageous events, and it's easy to cause them on your own. Really, it isn't hard to think up crazy things, like, say, giving a rat a Viking funeral. And executing those crazy things is normally no problem either. I just made a small boat from paperboard, put my dead rat in it, surrounded her with her treasured possessions (a chewing block and a piece from the remote-controlled car I modified for her)(holy crap, that's right, I just remembered that I modified a remote-controlled car so that I could drive her around in it. Those were good times - a rat zipping down the hall at top speeds of 4.2 mph.), set it on fire, and pushed it out onto the lake. I even printed fliers advertising the event for anyone who wanted to attend ("Putting the 'fun' back in 'funeral'!" they proclaimed).
Slightly more difficult than comedy is action. Comedy can just happen, and doesn't need a controlled environment. Creating action is sometimes a bit tougher - at least if you want to be safe. I wasn't going to drop my monitor four stories and allow it to hit someone, so I had to make sure the area was cleared. Sure, there would have been more action had I just thrown it off the balcony indiscriminately, but I wasn't willing to risk it. Action can also happen incidentally, but very rarely do you actually see Jean-Claude Van Damme hanging onto the side of the metro as you ride to the office. I for one have never seen it happen. Vin Diesel? Well, that's another story...
But hardest of all? That classification falls to the musicals. In real life, people very very seldom break into song and dance. Sometimes on their own, in the private of their rooms, they'll self-choreograph a dance to some show-tune or interrupt their homework to belt out a song by The Bangles, but even those events are relatively rare. Nowhere near the 9-songs-in-2-hours ratio you get in cinema. If people ever did break from real life to perform a song-and-dance it would be the most amazing experience imaginable. I can't even conceive of a place where it would work. Though, contrary to what you'd see in the musical Chicago, court is apparently not the place to spontaneously belt out a solo while dancing a little soft-shoe. But like I said, comedy and action are easier to replicate.
