Selection/competition

From Vector via Nick:

An "action" movie is a competition fantasy, in which selection doesn't exist. (Selection might mean that Man is thanked profusely by Woman for the saving of her life, but, a little ashamed, she confesses that she has no desire to sleep with him.)

A "romance" movie is a selection fantasy, in which competition doesn't exist. (Competition might mean that, despite her best efforts, Woman really does end up forced into the loveless marriage with the rich and boring Man twenty years her senior.)
