Editorial Reviews

Everyone's falling in love with the wrong person in this hilariously hot all-star romantic comedy -- A PYROMANIAC'S LOVE STORY! Heartthrob William Baldwin (SLIVER, THREE OF HEARTS, BACKDRAFT) stars as the outrageous Garet, who tries to win the love of his sweetheart (sexy Erika Eleniak -- UNDER SIEGE) with a blazing crime of passion ... but she's got the hots for Sergio (John Leguizamo -- CARLITO'S WAY), who's carrying a big torch for a hot-tempered waitress named Hattie (Sadie Frost -- BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA)! Mixed-up romantic signals and comic confusion abound until the smoke finally clears ... and everyone involved can realize their burning desires!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your every day romance December 4, 1998
Format:VHS Tape
Offbeat, hilarious romantic comedy populated by weird, and weirder, characters. Avoids the typical cliches and expected characters, with surprisingly good acting from everyone. If only Hollywood made more like this....

Charming, romantic, funny are all great words for this film. I honestly don't understand why this movie didn't have greater success. Everyone I know who has seen it, loves it. Cult following like The Princess Bride.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Romance Than Comedy December 9, 2005
The title is the funniest thing about "A Pyromaniac's Love Story", this so-called romantic comedy has a lot more romance than comedy. The movie starts out as another tale of unrequited love as Sergio (John Leguizamo) explains in voice-over that he has long been in love with Hattie (Sadie Frost), the waitress daughter of a diner owner who thinks of him as just a friend.

Although Sergio and Hattie are the movie's core romantic couple, there are two minor romances going on at the same time. The gimmick of "A Pyromaniac's Love Story" is a series of mix-ups involving all three couples. The confusion could be easily cleared up if the persons in each couple managed to communicate with each other but the only communication is between couples. This might be very funny if the script was well written and clever but instead it is one of those movie situations which is only credible if you believe that all the characters are morons. So you have a decent love story with good messages about communicating and taking risks to declare your love which gets buried under a lot of poorly written slop.

"A Pyromaniac's Love Story" tries to be offbeat and whimsical in the style of "Benny and Joon" and although the two scores are almost identical it is never able to achieve the same effect. In part this is because William Baldwin's over-the-top performance is painful in relation to how understated everything else is, and Sergio has more screen time with him than with Hattie. A poor choice because Sadie Frost is the strongest member of the cast and has good chemistry with Leguizamo.

If you are looking for a way to make this movie interesting, I suggest that you watch it along with "Bram Stoker's Dracula" which was made 2 years earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's not for everyone November 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
even though this movie is very over acted, I love watching it over and a warm cozy blanket when you're sick. there are SO many hilarious lines to quote years down the road ("..I BELONG IN A MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON FOR MEN!! AHHHH!!")

it is definitely a quirky romance with hilarious characters that have their over the top way of doing things.
