Storyline

Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances. Written by Becker Film Group

Quotes

Samantha Borgens: There are two kinds of people in this world: hopeless romantics and realists.
Rusty Borgens: Right.
Samantha Borgens: A realist just sees that face and packs it in with every other pretty girl they've ever seen before. The hopeless romantic becomes convinced that God put them on Earth to be with that one person. But there is no God and life is only as meaningful as you fool yourself into thinking it is. Guys who get laid a lot are realists. You should be listening.

In spite of an array of average romantic-comedies these days, Stuck in Love tries its best to be humble yet having it's fair share of ROM-com uniform.
19 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Once in a while a special romantic comedy arrives with the up most intention of bending the rules of the genre. Predictability is lost and truth is portrayed - the rare essential in the ROM-COM environment. Try mixing this with a typical family flick and you might have a few problems. Next add a few curse words, sex and drugs to get it going. In the end, Stuck in Love, has it's proportion of predictability yet is a noble debut for Film-maker Josh Boone.

Novelist, Bill Borgens (Greg Kinnear), is the center of the film amongst his two kids and ex-wife Erica (Jennifer Connelly). From time to time he spies on his ex and her new, much younger partner. You could say he's in a boring mid-life crisis. Then there's the two kids - Samantha and Rusty, both aspiring writers with different views on love. Yes, the bunch are stuck in love.

With reasonably good acting, the cast were well chosen. The smaller parts were given well to Kristen Bell who pops up a few times with good cause and a surprise cameo may interact pleasantly yet a tad cheesy. Nonetheless, the cast is crisp.

Its a decent plot to say the most and when things try spice it up it falls short. These few hardly innovative circumstances aren't resolved the way we wish. They offer capability to provide more state-of-the-art stature, but as you guessed, and knew all along, leave you dry. However where it is decent, it's a good watch despite a sappy ending.

All in all, Josh Boone makes a worthy debut. He's a stack of potential waiting to find the correct film - which is great. He deserves to be somewhere in the 'film-makers to look out for' list whether or not his debut isn't anything significant. It's the seeds for a promising plant.
