Mr. Fix It (2006)
A funny, well made date movie!
Positioned somewhere between Hitch and Failure to Launch comes Mr. Fix-It, a funny, well made date movie that stars everyone's favorite "Angel," David Boreanaz.
Boreanaz plays Lance Valenteen, who hires himself out as a fixer of relationships-gone-bad. Newly dumped guys tell Lance that major flaw that made their former significant others show them the door. Lance gathers information on the ex-girlfriends, then sets up a time and place to "accidentally" bump into them.
He aggressively courts his subjects, eventually getting them to fall madly in love with him. Then he drops the bomb on the unsuspecting female by becoming a total jerk and making whatever the ex-boyfriend did seem like child's play.
The woman crawl back to their ex, Lance gets paid and everyone lives happily ever after. Not so fast.
All this comes at a price for poor Lance. Lance does not believe in true love, is totally miserable and does not want to grow old alone. During his time of vulnerability, Lance breaks his own rule by falling for one of his marks, the beautiful Sophia (De La Garza of "Law and Order" and "CSI: Miami"), who displays a few tricks of her own.
Mr. Fix-It is a very enjoyable movie that truly showcases the comic talents of Boreanaz. The makers of this movie know exactly what they are doing and who their audience is. The film never drags, has a very good soundtrack and the box art is first rate.
This movie should have no trouble selling itself, with Boreanaz's legion of female fans and his hit TV show "Bones." There's plenty for men, too, with the very beautiful De La Garza more than holding her own on screen. Jonathan Rosenbloom, Home Media Retailing
