Film genre, or the classification of film into categories is based upon designated characteristics that distinguish one film from another.

They remain a useful way to categorize and distinguish most films, so that audiences know what to expect. Most film critics agree on ten film genres: action-adventure, comedy, costume films, epics, horror, musical, science fiction and fantasy, suspense, war, and the western. This DVD discusses the following films and the genre of each: Angel and the Badman, The Road to Bali, Royal Wedding, My Man Godfrey, and The Big Combo.
