Meet the Borgens. William Borgens is an acclaimed author who hasn't written a word since his ex-wife Erica left him 3 years ago for another man. In between spying on Erica and casual romps with his married neighbour Tricia, Bill is dealing with the complexities of raising his teenage children Samantha and Rusty. Samantha is publishing her first novel and is determined to avoid love at all costs - after all she's seen what it has done to her parents. In between hook ups, she meets "nice guy" Lou who will stop at nothing to win her over. Rusty, is an aspiring fantasy writer and Stephen King aficionado, who is on a quest to gain 'life experiences'. He falls for the beautiful, but troubled Kate and gets his first taste of love and a broken heart. A tale of family, love (lost and found), and how endings can make new beginnings. There are no rewrites in life, only second chances. Written by Becker Film Group

Love with a spoon of reality and two spoons of smartness
9 December 2013 | by Moh_1993See all my reviews

Stuck in love,the title was attractive for me.I was looking for a romance movie to watch,ant it seemed to be a good one.After watching this movie i would like to tell you "Go watch it and enjoy".This movie is the best type of romance movies ,it is a movie that shows real life love not that crazy impossible love.It shows you 3 types of love that you may encounter (or encountered before) in a very realistic way.if u have experience in love you will understand what am talking about,love in real life is full of pain,disappointment,coincidences and mainly "imperfection" .This movie will show the whole parts in a very true and wonderful way.And you will really see love from the point of view of smart writers(characters are all writers).In summary,I think Josh Boone is going to have a great future in movies.He made me "stuck' in the screen focusing on every event. Why only 7?you might.Honestly,the way they made drug abuse a normal thing was so bad .It sends a message that "Its OK to use weed from time to time"??thats a real bad thing that gave the movie -2/10 .I wish directors consider that drugs is not a funny game or stress relief way.It is a real danger that is ruining people out there . Thanks for reading
