Storyline

90 Days is a tongue-in-cheek look at the misadventures of two modern men in search of romantic bliss: macho Alex, who receives the offer of a lifetime from a mysterious woman, and sincere Blue, who goes to extravagant lengths to find the perfect bride. A classic example of the philandering husband, Alex is caught in a bind. Wife and girlfriend abandon him simultaneously. One suitcase and his golf clubs bear silent witness. But, as if by magic, a new woman appears in Alex's life. Lacking the bravado of Alex, Blue has discovered a new approach to happiness - the written word. In his relentless search for the perfect woman, he has resorted to the Cherry Blossoms catologue for a mail-order bride from Korea. He has 90 days to make up his mind before her visa expires.

Terrific
11 June 2003 | by André-7See all my reviews

A Wonderful little piece of Canadian cinema was a transitional film between the docu-drama The "Masculine Mystique" and the below average farce they made later. This is the best of the three films. Sam Grana's dry, dead-pan delivery and Wodolovsky's enthusiastic sincerity give the film heart and soul. The film's highlight is Sam\Alex' confrontation with the fertility clinic nurse.
