19 Months takes a comic look at a young couple who believe that romantic love has an expiry date. Rather than stay in a relationship past its due date they have decided to break up. In order to avoid the usual pain, jealousy and loneliness so many others go through during a break up Rob and Melanie have agreed to stay together until each of them has found a new partner. So confident are they in this process they have invited a documentary filmmaker to help show the world their "new and better way." Unfortunately for Rob and Melanie they are about to show the world something entirely different. Written by
This is by far, (no exaggeration) the WORST film I have ever seen. In the opening scene you hear the "documentary maker's" voice telling you how they had been interviewing couples for a documentary on relationships and stumbled on Rob and Melanie who had this interesting theory about relationships and breakups. At this point you are left to imagine that this is a legitimate documentary... interesting... perhaps. Anyway about 2 minutes into the movie you realize it is not really a documentary, the responses are too obviously scripted and they are very poorly executed by these "actors." Actually the only good performance is on the part of Page (Kari Matchett) who you might recognise from "Blue Murder." Although the film is relatively short (77 minutes) I couldn't stand watching all of it. Luckily I had it on DVD so I skipped the long drawn out monologues (which unfortunately pollute most of the film). Basically the whole thing is predictable: Everyone knows about those couples who break up thinking everything will be fine and then everything ends up going to s**t and then they feel bad about it, feel nostalgic and eventually get back together only to break up again after sometime. Know what I'm talking about? Seen this in real life before, more than once? Then you don't need to see this movie. And on another note, it's categorized as a comedy... they really stretched the definition of "comedy" to fit this one into it. There wasn't even one remotely funny scene in this entire movie. Spare yourself the $4 or $5 it costs to rent it, it's not worth it at all. Two thumbs and all other digits and toes down!
