Write an email that could be sent to the presenter of the radio programme summarising the findings of your servey. Include information about:

- best plots (with examples)
- most popular settings (plase and time)
- most popular actors (male and female)
- most popular titles
We have conducted a survey on the most popular films of the 21st century so far. We found out that the most popular types of films were romance and comedy, for example 'Along came Polly'. People like to laugh after a hard day rather than watch something serious. Moreover, the most successful comedies of the 21st century had a love theme, for example 'He's not just that into you'. It also turned out that the most popular films were set in big cities such as New York and LA. And it looks like today people are fond of watching films about the present. for example 'Horrible Bosses'. The most popular female star was Jennifer Aniston while the most popular actor was George Clooney. Almost everybody named these talaned actors in their most favourite lists. Finally, we analysed the titles of the most successful films and found out that they often consisted of modern phrases or included 'slang', for example 'The Hangover'.
I hope you will find this information interesting. I would be pleased if you could incude it into your radio programme.
