touching, universal tale of love
14 October 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

John Gallagher's "Cupidity" is an endearing NYC romantic comedy that is an undeniably entertaining and heartwarming film, exceptional in that it is completely improvised.

The lead, James (played by James Gilmartin), shares with us his hilariously misguided and unsuccessful search for love in a refreshingly honest and direct, yet sweet-natured manner. The handsome and lovable Gilmartin manages to display his impressive range, despite the limits set by the nature of the film's genre.

He succeeds in creating a character who not only inspires laughter and tears, but, most importantly, evokes empathy within the viewer. He achieves this through subtlety, knowingly and confidently counterbalancing the colorful and absurd cast of caricatures that surround him.

A number of these individuals are also note-worthy, namely Michele Coniglio, who plays the stalker, and Jared Miller, Dr. Cupid. Many of the myriad of women who act as James' dates in his disastrous experiment provide a great deal of laughter as well, due to their outrageousness.

Though the audience may rightfully desire greater character (i.e. James and Bethany) development, they are awarded with a movie that is touching and universal in its tale of love. Anyone who has sought, found, or lost love can relate to "Cupidity". It is the underlying theme, the final message articulated by James that gives the film its most valuable meaning: in looking for love and in life as a whole, relinquish fear and "be yourself."
