On the other hand, Jerry loves romantic movies and hates horror movies, he like watching wet couples and romantic scenes. Both don’t know they have different watching movie favourite.

    One day, Emma comes home and invites Jerry to watch a new movie. Jerry thinks that it is a fantastic movie and then they go to the cinema together. Jerry don’t know this is a horror movie. Five minutes after watching movies, Jerry is really unbearable. He stands up and go to the toilet and throws up. He says “Emma, I don’t think that I can watch the movie like that again”.

Emma thinks that it is a fantastic movie and they go to the cinema together. Emma don’t know this is a romantic movie. Five minutes later, Emma stands up go to the bathroom and throws up. She says “Jerry, I don’t think that I can watch the movie like it again”. Jerry thinks about this for a moment and answers “I think we will wait for a horror love movie.

    How likely is it that they’re married and they don’t know each other's taste in movies?!

    Also, what do you mean by “wet couples”?

    Actually, if they are lover and get married each other, they will know each other’s taste. But I'm suppose to write this funny story.

    “Wet couples” means couple falls in love.

    Why do you say "supposed to"? Who is asking you to write it?

    Re: Emma and Jerry

    Maybe "wet couple" will catch on. (Probably not.)

    Re: Emma and Jerry

    That's weird.

    Try:

    Emma and Jerry are a married couple who like watching movies, but their tastes differ.

    It's fine that they love each other, but that's not truly relevant here.

    Re: Emma and Jerry

    Jerry thinks it's a fantastic movie.

    That doesn't make sense. He hasn't seen the movie yet, and he doesn't even know what kind of movie it is.

    " Wet couples", I myself think this word. So that doesn't work in English.
    " supposed to", I will try referring online to replace this word.

    Re: Emma and Jerry

    This is my rewrite.
    Emma and Jerry are a married couple who love each other very much. Both also like watching movies, but there is a little problem with them. Emma loves horror movies; she likes watching blood, awful things and bad endings. On the other hand, Jerry loves romantic movies and hates horror movies. He likes romantic scenes. However, they don’t know they have different taste in movies.

    One day, Emma comes home and says to Jerry “Jerry, there is a new movie that named Loving and remembering. We must watch it”. Jerry doesn’t know this is a horror movie, he just thinks that this is a horror movie. Five minutes into the movie, Jerry finds it really unbearable. He stands up and goes the toilet and throws up there. He comes back and says “Emma, I don’t think that I can watch a movie like that again”.

    A few days later, Jerry comes home and says to Emma “Emma you have to come with me to the cinema. There is this amazing movie, and we must go to see it”. Emma thinks that it is a fantastic movie, and they go to the cinema together. Emma doesn’t know this is a romantic movie. Five minutes Jerry thinks about this for a moment and answers “I think we will have to wait for a romantic horror movie to come out.

    Re: Emma and Jerry

    Three things. One, you didn't need to write another version. Two, the word also means in addition. Three, there are many of the same problems with that one as with the other one.

    A couple more things. This illustrates why I advise people to post just one paragraph at a time. Finally, all that for such a lame punch line?
