Default Dramedy,maybe

The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) is hosting a bunch of space related activities in honor of the 50 year Apollo 11 anniversary. One of them is
a showing of “ ...the classic comedy” ‘The Right Stuff’ . Now, there may be a few humorous scenes - even a couple of laugh out loud moments - but ‘comedy’?

It's a comedy just like The Martian.

It would seem that their spelling ‘reel’ is just a twist on the correct spelling; it’s a film, so it’s ‘reel’ as in film ‘reel’.

That was my assumption when I read it.

But yeah, there is no way any cinematic authority would characterize this movie as a comedy. THAT is a definite goof.

It's almost as tough to spell as "they".
