An Unpretentious But Memorable Look at Love
29 April 2012 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

Rarely does a romance movie stand out and if it does, it usually has some really weird or unusual premise that literally carries the movie:

Time After Time (1979). Time Travel and H.G. Wells. Simply Irresistible (1999). The literal magic of food preparation. Dave (1993). The office of the President of the United States. Working Girl (1988). Rich executive and a prostitute. Bewitched (2005). A witch. Roman Holiday (1953). A princess. City of Angels (1998). A supernatural being. Mannequin (1987). Pretty self-explanatory. Groundhog Day (1993). Time repeating itself. Notting Hill (1999). Famous actress. Charade (1963). Mystery and murder. Sweet November (2001). About dying and love. Love Story (1970). About love and dying. West Side Story (1961). Gangs and Shakespearean ideal love and tragedy.

My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, besides being shot in Salt Lake City where this commentary was born, avoids any and all pretense to being anything other than a story about real love that could involve anybody without any special circumstance or position in life. There isn't any fancy artistic or cinematic endeavor for special awards. There are no the gritty harsh dramatic and poignant in your face scenes. What the audience is presented with is a mass audience version of Lost in Translation (2003) of real romance without the photographic and authentic realism. Instead this movie presents itself as a movie that depicts simple acts of "lovingness" that most of us have forgotten in our run of the mill lives.

Perhaps the closest movie that captures a similar but more polished and mystical flavor to My Girlfriend's Boyfriend is Sliding Doors (1998) that captures two parallel love stories with the same female character. My Girlfriend's Boyfriend offers the audience a simple, well edited story about everyday love and with it a twist about what is real and what is fiction and is there really a difference? Like The Cooler (2003), this movie provides a look at love without all the frills and in doing so presents its story in a way that is authentic by its very nature of avoiding all the fantastic decorative and in the end superficial adornments.
