A formula film that makes you miss overdone formulas
on January 27, 2014
You know how even when you watch a cheesy movie, you can work with it because somehow, even with the poor acting and poor lines, the senario and the handsome guy make you enjoy it when he finally takes her in his arms? At least there is that toe curling kiss right? Yeah this doesn't even have that. In fact, this show was all build up with no delivery. It COULD have been good. It starts out ok but then completely unravels into nonsense. It vacillates from too light to too dark with no rhyme or reason. She meets a guy who comes across as a total loser and just attaches herself to him without any commitment from him. He is a billionaire who can't afford a razor and she is a damaged woman (her history is TOO dark for a rom-com) with an annoying lisp.
We never see any real catalyst for change in either of them so much as we see things like "weeks later" on the screen and we're supposed to understand that means the relationship has progressed, even though he claims from the beginning that he is leaving and gives her little more than a there there when she clings to him "I hate to think of you leaving.I love you". By the time this thing ended I felt so robbed of romance. I have never felt more apathetic towards a couple. can't recommend this one
