Storyline

The Dramatics is a romantic comedy about a sweet, but stressed out actress, who unexpectedly lands a starring role in the sexually explicit mini-series adaptation of a best-selling, erotic chick lit novel and her loving, but tortured stoner boyfriend, who is forced to deal with it. Loosely based on the lives of Kat Foster and Scott Rodgers, who co-penned the script and co-star in the film, The Dramatics marks their first feature together and Rodger's directorial debut. Written by Anonymous

A Dramedy without laughs or drama
14 June 2015 | by (Old London, New England) – See all my reviews

Paul and Katie are an actor/screenwriter and actress couple who live in the Hollywood Hills while they try to catch a break in the movie business. When a predatory actor/producer offers Katie the lead role in his sado-masochistic sex film, she immediately starts agonizing about the douche-bag's lecherous behavior and his project's dubious sexual content. Needless to say, Paul feels threatened, but he responds by increasing his weed-smoking and flirting with other women.

The two lead actors appear to possess some talent, but repeatedly over-act as they fight a losing battle with their own wooden writing and direction. The minor characters are mere caricatures, although Rosemarie Dewitt shines briefly as a pretentious acting coach in a cameo which requires minimal dialog. The arc of the story hovers obstinately around the lowest common denominator, until it plummets down another few levels for the farcical conclusion. Like countless other US sex comedies, the film treats its main issues - sex and jealousy - with exceptional coyness. Since it lacks both laughs and dramatic content, a more appropriate title would be: 'The Melodramatics: A Bore'.
