LAFS is a genuinely funny and warm love story, low budget, but sweet.
18 November 1998 | by (Kingston, Ontario, CANADA) – See all my reviews

"Love at First Sight" is Dan Aykroyd's first film, and although low budget, it's funny, funny, funny.

Don't let the grimey run-down appearance of the film and its location scare you off. Set in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in the early 1970's, LAFS is the story of Roy, a 20-something blind man who falls unexpectedly in love with Shirley, an unemployed young woman in search of a love and a future.

Shirley's father however, has different plans for his daughter. Believing that Roy is an unfit match for Shirley, he forbids the two from seeing one another ever again. With some surprise financial assistance from Shirley's grandmother, Shirley and Roy soon elope together to Niagara Falls, where they open a successful restaurant and live happily ever after.

LAFS is quirkey, well written and the characters are hilarious. Shirley's bigoted, beer guzzling dumb Canuck of a father is alone worth the price of admission.

Also, keep your eye out for all sorts of funny little details going on in the background, and just try to note all of the somewhat puzzling KFC references in the film (including a cameo by Col. Sanders himself).

LAFS is a sweetheart of a film, and it also contains one of my favourite (and strangest) movie lines ever: "Go ahead Shirley, touch the janitor's genitals."
