The Sweet Life, an edgy and unconventional dramedy, is the love story of Kenny Parker and Lolita Nowicki, each struggling with their own brand of demons, who first meet by chance in Chicago... See full summary »
You know you have a problem when one of your minor characters (but more famous person) takes up most of the space on your DVD box.
I was wrestling between a few good and a many very poor elements in this picture.
The lead was charming but in a way you've seen a thousand times before. Old jokes. Very tired and old jokes.
Nice guy can't find love. But done in a very stale, direct and familiar way. The crazy ex's vignettes thing has been done before and never works.
Some of these low-budget movies seem to cast the first person who walks through the door. They were not bad actors but not quite good for the roles.
I think I have decided what is the most annoying word that a woman can speak, and it was used a lot in the beginning of this movie: "WOOO!" In conjunction with heavy metal devil horns and my manly parts crawl up into my body (and I'm not a picky man!). (The often-misused word "amazing" is #2.)
What was Joan Jett doing there? I thought she was a Joan Jett lookalike and, to my shock, found out it was HER. Was she actually drunk and wandered into the production? Why would she bother?
I did like the message. Respect people, whoever they are. But it ended up being so clunky and day-old. New York movies seem to insist there is a charm about all these rough-edged people and dirty streets. I don't see it.
All these people seem to be so very tired. Probably 'cause they've been in all those other tired New York movies.
