Storyline

Mike, Danny, and Rick are grown men who share a house in Chicago. They take on a fourth house mate, John, who is Mike's estranged first cousin. John's welcome to the house is crowned by his introduction to a game of perpetual pranks called "Watch it!" When not playing pranks on each other, the three men spend their time womanizing, avoiding commitment, treating women badly, and talking about women in the coarsest terms. John, somewhat of a drifter with a fear of commitment, is nonetheless a man apart from this trio of feckless cowards. He takes a shine to Anne, recently jilted by his cousin Mike. Meanwhile, Rick is doing his best to ruin a promising relationship with the fetching and sincere Ellen. How Annie, Ellen, Rick, Mike, and John sort out (or fail to sort out) their social lives becomes the focus of the movie. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

If You Watch It, Expect More Romance Than Comedy
14 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this if....you are looking for a romantic comedy, but don't expect it to be light on the romance. There is comedy, but their is plenty of romance. Probably not a bad choice for couples if there isn't anything better to watch.

Acting/Casting: 5* - The acting is okay. No one stands out as great and I'm not a big fan of Peter Gallagher, so the score is only average since he is the lead actor in the film. There are some solid supporting cast members in Tom Sizemore and John McGinley, but overall it is a very average cast doing very average acting.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 5.5* - The first 30 minutes of the film are very good and grab your interest, but I felt the movie really begins to slow down quite a bit when the romantic theme enters into play. It isn't painfully slow, but I tend to think it is noticeable and takes away a little from the film.

Plot/Characters: 5* - I think you can sum this film up by saying that this is a movie about relationships (sexual, family related, friends). Again, the movie starts out very well and grabs your attention, but the storyline isn't particularly strong. It is more about old grudges between cousins and payback/revenge for something that happened many years ago.

Entertainment Value: 6* - I will say that despite the slow spots and a somewhat odd storyline that develops, it is still an entertaining film. I wouldn't say it is great, but probably not a bad choice to watch with your significant other on a slow afternoon or evening.

My Score: 5+5.5+5+6 = 21.5/4 = 5.375
