Storyline

Josh is one of those guys who can't navigate the shallow NY singles scene. Not to worry, his two friends Tim and Sean are self proclaimed singles experts who are willing to help their buddy. From bestowing their dating wisdom, to giving their friend a total image make-over these two stop at nothing - including the writing, placement, and interviewing of a personal ad. Weeding out the three "right ones" or at least what they deem the most appropriate proves to be a monumental experience, even for these two. In the meantime, Josh applies some of his newly acquired wisdom coupled with his own honest approach on Doreen - a woman his two buddies have deemed out of his league. Indeed, it appears that all of his advances go unnoticed on this lovely but embittered singled mom. Of course love does triumph in the end, but it is found by the heart and only after the age-old adage of "to thine own self be true" is learned by one and all. Written by Anonymous

Gentle Romance (with an 80's feel)
5 October 2009 | by (m/s Seven Seas Mariner) – See all my reviews

This is quite a hidden little gem of a romance, and one you should try to discover.

The story revolves around Street Performer, Magician and part-time Book store worker, Josh (Anthony Michael Hall) and his two more worldly wise (??) friends Tim and Sean. Josh is looking for love where as his two friends are looking for lust (with varying degrees of success and quality).

The story is gentle and more than a little believable (if you overlook the usual "Friends" faux pas that a lowly worker/performer can live in a nice large apartment without starving to pay the rent and in this case dine out regularly). The stand point of both Josh and Doreen (the love interest) will ring true with most singles the world over along with their insecurities and anxieties. The romance is slow but sweet without being cloying.

The second plot line, the two friends helping to find love for Josh in the Lonely Hearts Ads is a little hit and miss, although the "Interview" sequence to find their top three is quite funny.

The look of the clothes and the scenery gives the 80's impression which is hard to shake off. That and the carefree attitude to random sex seem out of place in a 21st century film but if you let your imagination take you back to the days of Dynasty and Robert Palmer videos you can excuse this.

This is a good solid cast, the four main actors more than hold their own and provide a little escapism for 90 minutes or so. More believable than Pretty Woman for those of us still paddling in the singles pool.
