Can you identify the inciting incident?

The Hating Game

The Hating Game is a romantic comedy that expertly portrays the “enemies to lovers” trope. The protagonist is Lucy, and the love interest is Josh — complete coincidence that three of the four examples have a character with that name! Rather than give you all the answers this time, I invite you to take a look at the movie trailer then complete the quiz to see if you can identify the inciting incident and the ways in which the essential components are evident.

Watch the trailer below.

Now take the quiz. You’ll be able to check your answers as you progress.
