Storyline

As soon as they meet Ari and Sam get into a pretty passionate - and combustible - relationship. Indeed, the scenes of their rendezvous often seem reminiscent of the Chicago Fire. But the course of true flaming lust never runs true, and as they try to handle their all-consuming passion their two best friends endlessly meet to compare notes on developments.

Never catches fire
6 August 2013 | by (Lincolnshire, UK) – See all my reviews

If you're going to make a talky film it helps if what the characters talk about is actually interesting, a concept lost on the makers of this bore.

For some reason the underlying premise is that Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick accidentally start fires every time they have sex, but this idea soon lies forgotten beneath a mess of captions, music, monologues to camera and dialogue that tries so hard to be cool it makes you want to kick your TV over.

Bacon is worth watching (as usual) but writer/director Noah Stern's misplaced belief that his movie is hip and meaningful is just irritating.
