I can deal with a lot of things but this movie is not one of those things - worst ever
15 April 2018 | by Reel_ReviewsSee all my reviews

Synopsis: A widower's daughter sets him up on an online dating site called RomanceMatch.

Story: Peter, 42, is a widower who is not really interested in dating. His college daughter, Julie, registers him for the online dating site called RomanceMatch. A little reluctant, Peter activates his account and immediately gets a message from Alexis.

DINNER AND A MATCH Peter and Julie go out to dinner to celebrate her getting into college. At the restaurant's bar, there is a lady, who seems to be on a date, possibly a blind date, with Ian. When Peter and Julie enter the restaurant, the woman at the bar keeps staring at Peter and ignoring her date. At one point, being frustrated by her date's aggressiveness, she slaps him out of his bar stool, literally, and leaves the bar.

It's during this dinner that Julie tells her father she signed him up or the online dating site. He's not happy about it but he promises her he will give it a try.

When they get home, Peter activates his account and immediately gets a response from someone named Alexis. He accepts the connection but walks away from his computer, at which point a message pops that he doesn't see.

The next morning, Julie sees the message and reads it to her father. He's still not interested, even after Julie tells him she's hot. He leaves for work. Julie decides to answer the message acting as her father. The background music played during this scene is very telling. Imagine Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) skipping along, but we the viewer know the rabbit hole is about to open up and swallow here. The music is a bit bouncy with a touch of creepiness and warning of danger in it.

Through the message exchange, Julie, pretending to be her father, sets up a date with Alexis. Not only does she set up the date, she picks the restaurant as well. Talk about being overbearing and pushy. Whose the parent and whose the child here?

Peter is at the restaurant waiting for Alexis when in she walks. She looks better in her profile picture than in person, but don't we all. She's supposedly a surgeon (doesn't seem old enough to be one). If she is in the medical profession, which I doubt, she's more of a resident than a surgeon. But the truth about Lexi does come out. We do learn she's A RN - REGISTER NUTE!

Peter and Lexi, as she likes to be called, end up go back to his place and sleep together. Who would have seen that coming?

The next morning Julie meets Alexis and doesn't care for her. Alexis offers to drive Julie to her boyfriend's house. Julie introduces Alexis to Billy to which Alexis says to call her Lexi for all her friends do.

During an afternoon tryst, Peter tells Lexi he has to get back to work. This doesn't sit well with her and gives him the boo hoo story of having trust issues. Peter leaves Lexi alone in his house while heads back to work. BIG MISTAKE!! Nothing really earth shattering happens in this movie you wouldn't see coming, but I'm going to end the recap here.

ACTING: The acting by Brianna Joy Chomer (Julie) is lackluster. She really brought the movie down. Watching her was becoming unbearable, especially in her states of supposed anger. And don't get me started on Tom DeNucci who plays Billy. He seriously overacts even when saying Hi. The extras in the movie that have lines are just as bad. I guess that's why they are extras.

However, the acting by Jullian Murray (Code Black, Murder in the First) is spot on as a devious crazy person with no soul. Need I say more? But at times, not even Jullian could save this movie.

EDITING ISSUES: There's a scene where Peter is in his office and his assistance brings him some flowers. He tries to avoid her questions and remarks regarding the flowers by saying he has a lunch date but it looks to be evening outside. Yet, in the next scene, we clearly see it's daylight outside. See images below. The one on the left is when he receives the flowers is trying to leave. The image on the right is the next scene where it clearly daylight outside. they must have filmed the flower scene at night and the other scene during the day, edited them together thinking no one would notice.

FINAL THOUGHTS: This movie has a good premise but a horrible execution as far as the actors chosen. Not to mention the flow of the movie. It seemed choppy and the ending came off rushed. As mentioned, the only one whose acting was believe able was Jullian Murray (crazy ass Lexi).

This is one movie I won't recommend to anyone. Usually, if a movie is bad, I will still recommend it because the outcome is worth the suffering and constant eye rolling from us, the viewers. But in this case, I did the suffering and eye-rolling for everyone. I took one for the team. You're welcome

A Dangerous Game came out in 2018 and should go right back in to never be seen again. Ugh!
