Why do tubby middle-aged average looking male leads always end up with the prettiest female in the film?
10 May 2011 | by Tom DeFeliceSee all my reviews

Donal Logue is a talented writer/actor. I especially liked him in "The Knights of Prosperity". Here, however, he plays a man who walks into a room and every woman wants to bed him. Even when the little girl meets him, she almost immediately sees him as her new perfect stepfather. It just doesn't work.

Drunken, self-centered, egomaniac he does very well. But even George Clooney would have a hard time making this character's almost instantaneous conquest appeal believable. The film makers use a few slow motion montages to try to make it work, but it doesn't.

This standard rom-com is all script and no substance. We are supposed to think these things happen because the story says so. I didn't buy it. Bill Forsyth at his peak might have been able to pull this off. Shel Piercy simply fails.
