Coming & Going is an irreverent romantic comedy that poses the question: How far would you go to capture the heart of the one you love? Lee (Rhys Darby) is a young, skilled OBGYN who lacks confidence when it comes to talking to women outside his successful medical practice. A minor injury temporarily lands him in a wheelchair and it is at that precise time that he meets his dream girl Alex (Sasha Alexander). Convinced she's only paid attention to him because he's in that chair, he stays in it to win her affections well after his injury has healed. Coming & Going is about love and the extreme things people do for it.Written by

How about GOING to the DVD store and COMING home with this nice romcom?
Dr. Lee (Rhys Darby) is a transplanted Brit and an OB-GYN working in the Los Angeles area. At work, he is very confident that he can provide excellent care to his patients and good bedside manner, too. But, away from the office or hospital, he is very shy around women. He makes blind dates and then becomes a no-show. His aunt, Irma, lives next door and worries very much about his future romantic happiness. One day, he has a fall and is confined to a wheelchair for a week. Wouldn't you know, a beautiful lady, Alex (Sasha Alexander) accidentally stumbles over him on a sidewalk, not watching where she is going, and a conversation ensues. For the first time in a great while, Lee can actually talk to a woman without hesitation, mostly because Alex takes an interest in him. Soon, they make arrangements to meet again but although Irma asks him to tell Alex the truth, Lee only feels confident that he has Alex's attention when he is seemingly disabled. This charade goes on quite awhile, with Alex admitting she wants to "date" Lee. Now what will he do? Meanwhile, Alex's sister and brother-in-law, a character on a children's show, are pregnant but is the baby the husband's or is the fetus' father the one "afternoon stand" wife had with a co-worker? Here are some problems two couples will have to work out indeed! This is a sweet and funny romcom that should please fans. Yes, it has a small bit of risqué material but, overall, is quite wonderful. (There is one scene involving a Chihuahua that will upset viewers, push the fast forward button). Darby is very funny, resembling Dudley Moore, and Alexander makes a beautiful love interest. All of the other cast members do fine work, too. This viewer also loved the nice costumes, sets, funny situations and well-paced direction. Having trouble finding any romantic comedies at the theater? Stroll over to the nearest DVD store and try to locate this one.
