Positive review of a very funny movie.
2 April 2004 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

I normally don't comment on movies, but after seeing the other review listed here, I just had to speak up. Sure, everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and I'm not gonna knock the person who gave "Love Stinks" a 0/10 rating, but don't let that one person's opinion keep you away from a VERY funny movie.

French Stewart plays a sitcom writer who meets Bridgette Wilson's character when both are in their friends' wedding. They begin dating, but have different ideas on where their dating should lead. He's happy to casually date and have fun, whereas she wants every day they spend together to be one step closer to marriage and kids. Whoa, can I ever relate... :)

As time goes on, she continues to push him into commitment while he continues to be dragged along unwillingly. Things eventually turn ugly between the two, but in a hilarious way. The things they do to torture each other are just plain funny. And I won't give away the ending, but it's genius - pure genius.

It's not a very well-known movie, but deserves to be checked out. Don't trust my review, and don't be scared off by someone else's poor review. Check it out and decide for yourself. If you like funny movies, I feel pretty confident that you'll love "Love Stinks."

My rating: 7/10.
