Storyline

In this action-comedy, four twenty-something friends are looking for love and having no luck. While on a ski trip, one of them finds passion with a beautiful girl after a random accident on the icy slopes. The others quickly conclude that the extreme circumstances of the accident were what caused love to bloom. They decide that the path to true love is to purposely set each other up on "extreme dates" with the objects of their affections. After a couple of near-successes, they go for broke by planning an elaborate kidnapping scheme that can't miss. But the hired "kidnappers" turn out to be ex-cons with a plan of their own, and the extreme date escalates out of control. The remaining friends must now rescue the captives, while desperately trying to avoid the long arm of the law. Obstacles pop up left and right, as the adventure gets wilder and wilder. The pursuit eventually takes us back to L.A., where secrets begin to get exposed.... In the end, will extreme dating lead to true love? Written by Anonymous

Pretty dumb...
13 February 2006 | by PookyiscuteSee all my reviews

I can understand why Devon Sawa would choose a role like this. Only because he's been out of work for so long, he's probably desperate. Same for Andrew Keegan as well. Both, good looking funny, semi-talented actors, they have chosen this piece, "Extreme Dating", which makes "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle" look like a Shakespearean piece.

After four friends go on a skiing trip, and one of them ends up in a dire situation with a strange girl, and falling in love with her afterwards, the rest of the group decides to try 'Extreme dating'. Meaning, they find different scenarios or situations where they can get trapped, kidnapped or isolated with the people they are in love with or have crushes on.

The whole movie was pretty lame, and although there were a few funny moments, it's not all that enthralling. I will admit that I watched the movie all the way through, partly because I was bored and the other part was because I like Devon Sawa and wanted to give the film a chance. The girl in the movie, whose name escapes me, has been in a few other films, but she looks like she's gone on Mary-Kate Olsen's diet. She used to be very full-figured, and now she looks almost sick. But, aside from that aspect, she was very good, maybe at times a little over dramatic, but cute.

It was worth checking out, but all in all not the best teen - young adult movie you'll see. Stick with better Sawa films like, "Casper" and "Idol Hands".
