Love and loss in '82
6 December 2013 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Featuring an unknown cast, this surprise b hit, touches on the quest for true love. A slightly geeky sort of guy joins an introduction agency, where he meets a variety of women, one loud, extroverted providing the funniest scene of the film. It's true to life, where looks do count as to the different leagues of attraction. When finally meeting his new love, who has a passion for roller skating, (the movie spends a little too much time on this angle) the ex explodes back into her life, where again he loses out, his last hurt him pretty badly. The film kind of teaches you a little about do's and don'ts of dating, no more than the hilarious disaster date Shelly. Quite a different kind of entertaining vehicle, The Personals is well worth a look.
