Unlucky in Love.....
4 July 2004 | by dslackerSee all my reviews

A love story, a cautionary tale of gambling, a comedy about growing up and taking responsibility. Luck is all of these and the mix is entertaining but, ultimately, not fulfilling. Guy gets a kiss from a female 'friend' that jumpstarts him into a gambling streak where he wins and loses a small fortune in a manner of days. His friends and roommates are even more immature than he and they all get in deep. Although its well written overall, there was much unrealized potential for more comedy. Acting was believable and up to par. This Canadian produced effort is certainly well above typical Hollywood comedy standards and worth searching out. The harness racing and goofball gambling buddies situations were pretty much how I remember them from the time period I was going through a similar (equally unsuccessful) maturing process.
