Delightful, heart-warming comedy about finding love in strange places.

I didn't expect much from this comedy, but I must say it did deliver. It's a sweet, heart-warming look at the many faces of love and the diverse needs of lovers for self-validation in the eyes of others.

Doug Dezzani and Tamara Curry play Norm and Monique, who run HOPELESS ROMANTICS, a dating agency for the kinky needs of deviant sexual and romantic men/women, seeking to find a mate. Among the many clients are: a female flasher, a bodily narcissistic gay man, a house cleaner who collects pubic hairs from her clients, a man whose penis size is just not up to his expectations (big surprise here for those who can't see it coming a mile away), a woman who can only experience orgasm while standing on her head, a pool boy who loves to pee into his clients' swimming pools, and a gay man in a wheelchair, who gets off on being able to stare at crotches without being noticed.

These may sound weird (and some of them are), but the characters themselves are lovingly, goofily played and are as endearing as all get out. Of course neither lead is having the best romantic private life either. The clients may wind up solving their problems as well as their own.

This is breezily scripted, breezily but sensitively acted, and delightfully directed. There isn't a dud in the bunch - all the actors are thoroughly professional. A stand-out is Christopher Bradley as the wheelchair bound Ivan, whose real pain is the invisibility of being gay and single in a world that only honors youth. His one revelatory scene (out of six) rings emotionally true and brings a tear to the eye.

This is a lovely film and the color is outstanding, not only in the vivid main title sequence but throughout the entire film. In fact, Hollywood has rarely turned out a better lit, better color designed achievement in cinematography since the good old days of three-strip Technicolor. Bravo to Mark Putnam!

See this one - it is sure to make you smile and feel good about both yourself and your fellow humans. How many films these days can guarantee that?
