Film Review: ‘All Relative’

24 November 2014 3:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sleeping with your girlfriend’s mother is only a minor obstacle to true love in “All Relative.” Kinda-sorta reworking the bizarre love triangle at the center of Mike Nichols’ “The Graduate,” writer-director J.C. Khoury’s second feature clearly intends to treat all its characters with respect and understanding but somehow winds up making them look like complete idiots instead. Day-and-date theatrical and VOD release has very little going for it on any platform.

Bland New York grad student Harry (Jonathan Sadowski) is still nursing a broken heart after his fiancee cheated on him and ended their engagement. His luck improves when he meets bubbly blonde Grace (Sara Paxton) at a bowling alley, only to discover she’s currently attached to a middling prospect she met online. Looking to drown his sorrows, Harry runs into seductive fortysomething Maren (Connie Nielsen) at a bar and almost immediately winds up in her bed. »

All Relative Review

19 November 2014 3:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Toward the end of recently crowned rom-com classic Crazy, Stupid, Love, there is a big plot twist. For those of you who have not seen the film, I will not spoil it here. In vague terms, one of the characters from the main subplot is related to the characters from the main plot. The twist works because the hints dropped about this connection beforehand are subtle. Meanwhile, the aftermath of its reveal makes the story more interesting for the protagonist of the film, played by Steve Carell. This plot advancement creates genuine surprise and moves the plot in a more intriguing direction.

J.C. Khoury probably wished that his new romantic comedy, All Relative, which hinges much of its story on a big surprise and a colossal plot contrivance, had the same success. Sadly, not only is the revelation obvious – the title even drops a whopper of a hint – but this »

Bro-Centric Rom-Com All Relative Calls for a Strenuous Suspension of Disbelief

18 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The Manhattan of writer-director J.C. Khoury's bro-centric romantic comedy All Relative is one where bored housewives spit wine into the mouths of their playboys as a seduction tactic, where twentysomethings wait a month and a parental meeting before having sex, and where iPhones exist but no one uses them to post photos of their significant others on Facebook or Instagram. As the title hints, Harry (Jonathan Sadowski), a Columbia graduate student, is in for a sexual romp strongly reminiscent of Benjamin Braddock's in The Graduate. He recovers from a turn as the cuckolded fiancé by becoming "the other man." But, as his best friend advises him in the opening monologue, Harry just needs to think of romance as the French do — a journey, not a destination »

The film won top honors at the 2012 Rome Film Festival and will open in a 10- to 15-theater run in the spring. “I think Marfa Girl is my best film or at least as good as any film I’ve made,” said Clark in a statement.

The setup to Young & Hungry is simple: Gabi Diamond (Emily Osment), a very broke college dropout, interviews for a personal chef position for tech entrepreneur Josh Kaminski (Jonathan Sadowski), but their growing sexual tension as employer-employee provides complications in Gabi's life. It's not the world's most complicated pilot or show -- it has all the basic ingredients of character, writing, humor but Young & Hungry's first dish tastes eh to ew. It's just a bit of a mess. »
