Hollywood romance is realistic.

I could make quite a long list of silly but supremely enjoyable romantic comedies from the "classic" or "golden age" of Hollywood. I would not enjoy Bringing Up Baby or It Happened One Night or The Lady Eve more if they were less silly and more realistic.

The problem is not a disconnect with reality, but a disconnect with good writing.

Maybe more things should go wrong, then there would be more to the movie and maybe more comedy

"Romantic comedy" is an oxymoron at best, so why should you expect them to be "more in touch with reality"? Films are for entertainment, not for reality.
