That all depends on the mood I am in.

Sometimes I would far prefer a comedy and yet at other times I like drama though I do not like violence or action movies.

I have not been to the movies for a long time however as tend to get lazy and stay home and watch the movies eventually on TV

I love English comedies.

I'm partial to comedy however, if I do go to the cinema and have to pay for my own tickets then I will see a movie that will captivate me in every way regardless of the genre - for me it's all about the script and strength of story (even in comedy). I certainly don't see a movie based on who is starring in the movie. Fortunately by way of work, I do receive quite a few free tickets or 2 for 1 deals, which makes the pleasure of seeing a movie even more delightful.
I never see a movie based on who is in it either. Its always about the story not the genre.

Hard question, Finy. I am struggling to think what my ratio would be. I *think* I go to see more dramas than comedies at the cinema even though I do love comedies.

To tell the truth my 1st choice is always a Thriller!

It takes a lot to make me laugh.
Dramas are o.k.

But a Thriller gets rid of all the 'cobwebs' we sometimes seem to have :)
Oh heavens above! This is a really hard one to answer,as I like anything with a great story,good script and fine acting!! As I am getting older and rarely actually go to the cinema,I tend to like things which make me smile,whether due to being a comedy or simply having a real 'feel-good' element to it.
We have an excellent Cinema Club here,and though most of the movies shown have subtitles,I have enjoyed each one I have seen immensely! Most are comedies and have made me laugh until I ache!!
I like both but would probably choose a comedy

Some time i do
It depends what mood I'm in, but I find there seem to be fewer good comedies and a lot of rubbish ones.
I don't go to the movies because I fall asleep so choose to watch at home. I like both so would choose whichever one I felt in the mood to watch first.
I like both and I have paid to see both at the movies. It does depend upon the movies being offered. I tend to go more for the comedies as they are fun and entertaining. There are a lot of new movies being released now post- Boxing day so we will probably go see some.
Definitely a drama, not horror or scifi, a good old murder mystery fits the bill for me. Unfortunately that kind of film doesn't seem to be made any more. I usually watch murder/mysteries on Foxtel UK TV, BBC channel and 13th Street when I'm looking for a good murder series or movie.
Meant to say I am, however, looking forward to seeing the movie "The Lady in the Van" with Maggie Smith. Coming out in the New Year - looks really funny. The Brits sure know how to do comedy and drama!

Drama, any time!
Have never been a 'fan' of comedy, although it's the hardest genre to act. Used to see 'Carry On' pictures, back in the day! 'Cleo' & 'Khyber' were the best of those!

Don't get to the 'movies' as often as I did as a teenager. I suppose the 'types' of films made these days are just not my 'scene'!

Last flicks I saw were 'Phaedre', direct telecast from the National Theatre, & the 'King's Speech', both excellently British made.

I do love a good 'murder mystery', but those are mostly on TV, again, the excellent UK made ones'.............'Morse', 'Frost', 'Vera', 'Banks', & 'Luther', et al.

Am going to see 'Sufragette', this week, though!
I'm with you, Finy: It all depends on what mood I'm in. To be honest, though, with all the trashy comedies that seem to flood our cinemas, I would sooner see a drama.

I'd prefer a comedy over drama
A comedy that is if there were any good comedies these days but there aren't so its got to be a hope of a major thriller drama to entice me in.
the comedy made now is not funny, HATE the hangover stuff YUK! I prefer a good drama or thriller but my passion is sci-ifi! give me special effect on the big screen yay! I can watch all that other stuff when it comes to TV
As I have a sick sense of humour I would rather see a real life drama that's interesting. The last funny film I saw was Death at a funeral and that is not everyone's cup of tea.
It depends on what is showing and how I feeling at the time.
prefer comedies
