Rules, tropes, cliches all films have them, what sub-genres should I test?

Help decide on future film sub-genres to be tested by doing the following poll (explanations for sub-genres appear after the poll.)

  • "Carry On" films - A British series of sex comedies.  [Carry on Behind]
  • Erotic romance - Romances that have lots of sex.  [9 1/2 Weeks]
  • Historical romances - Romances set in an earlier period.  [Titanic]
  • Lesbian romance - A romance between 2 women.  10+ films have already been tested for this genre.  [The Incredible True Adventure of Two Girls In Love]
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl - Films based around this character type.  10 films have already been tested for this genre.  [Garden State]
  • Romantic drama - A romantic drama.  [Breakfast At Tiffany's]
  • Romantic tragedies - A romance with a death.  [Sweet November]
  • Rom Coms - The standard formulaic romantic comedies.  10 films have already been tested for this genre.  [Sleepless In Seattle]
  • Supernatural romance - Romances between humans and supernatural creatures.  [Twilight]
  • Teen Sex Comedies - Coming of age films meet sex comedies.  [Porky's]

There may be a lot of crossover between these sub-genres, many Sex & Romance films are comedies, dramas films.  Films may be tested in multiple genres.

There are Sex & Romance sub-genres not included here that appeared in previous polls.
  • Comedies & Musicals - includes: Sex Comedies.
  • Dramas & Historical - include genres that often include romances, like Bio-Pics, Coming of Age films, Melodramas and the like.
  • Exploitation films - especially Sexploitation films.

There are Sex & Romance  sub-genres not included here that will appear on later polls.
  • Suspense & Thrillers - especially Erotic thrillers.

Any sub-genres of Sex & Romance you feel are missing and need to be added to the list?  Any films that need to be tested?  Please comment below.
