Via Chaos Theory, an article from the Los Angeles Times about the rules for creating heroines in romantic comedies. These rules, as conveyed to the author by various unnamed screenwriters, include: make your heroine as wonderful and perfect as possible, make sure she displays "vulnerability" in at least one heartfelt shot (preferably accompanied by pop music, no doubt), never specify her age if you can help it and if you can't help it, say she's 29.
