super fun comedy with a can't miss sound and look
Finding love is rough. Finding love when you have an obsession for toe sucking self love is a mission for Hopeless Romantics. Norm (Doug Dezzani) and Monique (Tamara Curry), matchmakers extraordinaire, take a scientific approach to helping their "challenged" clients find true love while embracing some very hilarious kinks. So how do you find true love for a pool boy whose greatest pleasure is tinkling in your pool? Is there hope for a man whose sensual fires burn brightest while decked out in Mexican wrestling regalia? Can one find a nice, normal guy who understands a penchant for collecting very personal hairs? Find out with the charming cast of THE DEVIANTS. This gem of a movie is a riot. Where it could go with booty jokes and shock value, it offers a very human and endearing (and FUNNY) approach to tackling sex and romance. The booty jokes are there, but clever writing (co-written by Doug Dezzani) and an excellent soundtrack from Robert Wayne Johnson give one a sense of "awww" instead of "ewww". The cinematography is excellent with vivid colors and some great wipes. There are moments of "that ain't right", but mostly solid performances and fabulous sound carry one through to the delicious end in what can be described as a fun romp. (I LOVE a movie one can describe with the word romp!) In a society where the word breast is usually followed with a naughty giggle it is a treat to find THE DEVIANTS. We are such a sex obsessed culture, yet discussing upside down orgasms is usually met with a "you have issues" attitude. Here finally is a movie that treats the wackier side of love with good natured humor and characters you really root for while frankly and riotously approaching the varied sexual aspects of the perv in all of us. This flick was shot in 17 days with a minimal budget, but the production quality belies that fact. There are a few groan moments, but overall i had a blast watching THE DEVIANTS, as did pretty much everyone I have ever met. LMAO and have been sitting my pals down for over 6 months now (ever since my first viewing) to spread the joy. And fill them in on why i laugh hysterically every time i go swimming or do certain yoga positions. Contains nudity, but rarely vulgarity, and gives new and fun meaning to there is someone out there for everyone. Thanks to Reid Waterer and Doug Dezzani for the giggles!
