Witty Dialogue and Adorable Leads
1 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The two leads (Abby Wathen and Michael Rady) carry this film brilliantly. Somehow they bring off the virtually impossible feat of creating powerful chemistry between them while sharing very minimal screen time together. And best friend Meghan Markle is right up there with them. Although the dialogue is witty and smart, many gratuitous curse words, for some inexplicable reason, are thrown in by screenwriters Nate Barlow and Boris Undorf. (Sad because RANDOM ENCOUNTERS could have been made - - and more effectively - - with ZERO off-color language.) Still, I was rooting wholeheartedly for Laura and Kevin to find each other again after their chance meeting early in the film because these two likable characters seemed so ideally suited. The belated resolution of their "love at first sight" does not come as much of a surprise, but it is satisfying nonetheless - - though, in my opinion, MUCH too abrupt. The film fades immediately to black, and then there is an extraneous, silly epilogue over the closing credits. That, I think, was a miscalculation. And yet, all in all, I liked RANDOM ENCOUNTERS quite a lot and found the attractive leading couple to be adorable and perfectly cast. I would like to watch it again, which, for such a conventional romantic comedy, is high praise indeed.
