Movie Genres: Comedy–Dislocation/Disorientation

Comedies about dislocation and disorientation revolve around the idea of a character–usually a male–who is thrown by social or economic circumstances that are beyond his control into a new, different world, or being transformed into somebody they are not familiar with.

Examples:

Teenagers  who are transformed into adults over night

Characters learn a lesson the hard way: They begin with a desire that is then turned on its head
