Desperate lonely women ......
14 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Lonely Hearts" is predictable, repetitive, and depressing. It plays like a primer for low self esteem. Beverly D'Angelo not only has an overeating disorder, but is so desperate and unhappy that she latches onto gigolo con man Eric Roberts, and the two proceed to bilk more lonely widows. Police involvement is excluded at the expense of believability as Roberts murders two of his female marks with zero investigations. I really lost interest in this one early on, and except for totally acceptable acting by Eric Roberts and Beverly D'Angelo, would have lived with the fast forward button. It's low budget and it really shows with the simplified script. - MERK
