Video: Harry Potter, Re-Cut As A Teen Romantic Comedy

Someone named Thewlis Rox re-cut a Harry Potter trailer to look like that of a teen romantic comedy, and I must say, the results are pretty convincing. No one has a crazy party when their parents are away, violates a pastry, or loses their virginity to someone’s mom, but it still looks like an entertaining teen flick to me. The Harry Potter movies have always had a “normal teenager” element to them; the attribution of magical powers to characters kids can identify with is what makes it such a wonderful fantasy for viewers. But you’ve never seen Harry quite like this. Too bad it’s not an actual movie. Fan fic screenplay, anyone?

      I think that’s one of the things I liked best about Harry Potter – that romance and sex came into play, but as just a part of the kids’ lives. More flattering to teenagers, really – they can be interested in going to class, playing sports, being with their families, and saving the world in addition to getting laid!

      Nothing new here. No edits to make it looks like something its not. It was a Romance Drama/Comedy/Kids Action.
      But definitely shows what simple music and well timed editing can do to the mood of a movie.
