A Solid Cut Above The Average
David Boreanaz of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" television series fame stars in this cute off-kilter romantic comedy where Boreanaz has a job at becoming the ideal date until he turns the table in order to compel his date back to their spurned lovers. But in his next job he appears to meet his match that threatens his perfect record. The one possible burning weakness shows up during the first part of the movie as how much of Boreanaz's character comes across as a demeaning ass-hole that darkens his appeal and also involves so much of an exaggerated comedy character types such as The Charmer, The Bully, The Big Mouth, The Wisecrack that it threatens to become almost a poor parody of itself. But as the ultimate outcome of his character's outlandish behavior becomes apparent, the romantic comedic genre mood returns all in good time. And as the movie proceeds to its conclusion, Boreanaz's character settles down into a rather insightful reflection of an adult coming of age film. This somewhat predictable film nevertheless maintains a good grip on its subject matter and handles most the rest of the movie in a rather compelling way with a well-handled twist for a romantic comedy. The direction of this movie and script by Darin Ferriola offers up a typical rom-com but with a bit of a refreshing and tad more of a substantive, meaningful take on romantic comedy making it a solid seven out of ten, almost an eight. Worth checking out.
