Well made movie - on clueless loser guys!
25 June 2012 | by sgoswami-1See all my reviews

Am sure the girls were laughing their *****s off. I was beating my head against the TV....I give this a 1 coz am tired of all this clueless guy movies with a curious dry feeling between their legs. Usual plot line - A beautiful girl pops up and the stags or the main male actor can't keep his pants on. Well after monkeying around for a good part of the movie the dude gets whacked and smacked by the 'girl of his dreams'. Saving face that his friend's sis has a crush on him and he has some romantic salvation in the end!

Some tips for all these "Romantic Comedy" movie makers

STOP MAKING A*****S OF GUYS. If you yourself suck with women get some experts to write the script. Hint: If the girl is screwing around right smack on the guy's face, what does he do.....that girl is history he will not even remember her for the next 10 lifetimes. In other words move on to the next girl. Maybe next time you can line up 10 actresses for the lead to go through....am sure your movie will be rated higher. And for God's sake don't have guys on screen like they just got out of prison after 10 years!
