Editorial Reviews

It's Valentine's Day and Tom (Oscar(r) winner Cuba Gooding Jr. -1996 Best Supporting Actor, Jerry Maguire) has big plans. He's about to get engaged and has a surprise party planned to share the good news with friends. But things take a turn for the worse? Tom returns home only to discover his girlfriend has packed up and left him. Now, instead of a surprise party, the surprise is on Tom. Fortunately, his friends - and a group of beautiful women - are there to help him make sense of it all in this bold romantic comedy about men, women and that crazy little thing called love. Also starring Anne Heche, Gina Gershon, Sean Astin and Matthew Lillard

Customer Reviews

Great dialogue between the characters.
Scott M. Perkins
IF you really listen closely to all of the little nuiances, you can get a great deal from the movie.
Tracy
What a mistake it was buying this movie before seeing it first.

Wow - just watched it, my head is spinning!

The most FAST quick-fire dialogue ever seen in my 60 years of movie watching.

Could have been a play, no real action at all. it's 100% dialogue. and man, is it fast! fast talking, quick wit, amazing script. the characters take turns telling their story, their gripes on love and the opposite sex. first the men, then, the women. the rapid wit firing back and forth is reckless speed of headache proportions.

The ending is sweet. meaningful even. I love the Frank Sinatra song that comes on for the ending credits. watch the credits all the way thru and there are some out-takes.

Funny, entertaining, mostly true stuff on love and sex and the games people play.

Not for kids. major big swearing and discussions of sexual nature. BJs, anal, cheating, nothing held back. not for prudes.

I really liked each character. all were cast perfectly.

be good - safe sex, kids!! Gramma Sally

Format: DVD
Mysteriously labelled a romantic comedy, this disappointed the critics who tried to see it as one. It's a fiendishly accurate depiction of the extreme positions we take over love-and-sex. Because it explodes stereotypical attitudes the film takes the form of conversation, the director/writer/actor adroitly blending the Woody Allen subject matter with His Girl Friday pacing. Each actor gets a manic stand up comic turn, each one does a good job with what they've got to deliver. It's smart, wise and funny. Best enjoyed by those who've made a relationship mistake or two and can afford to laugh at themselves. Not recommended for those looking for romantic comedies (which are often just a sentimental look at stereotypes). Here those stereotypes get their heads blown off.

I've known about this movie for some time, but had not seen it. Some may complain about the language which is a little strong early. However, I would argue that it is true to what may happen in real life when 5 guys and 5 girls of their lifestyles get together in an emotionally charged situation?

I agree that the cover doesn't do the movie justice...get into the movie & you'll see a well played and designed story written, directed, produced, and starred in by Mars Callahan. The personalities were matched beautifully to the stars who played them. It was fun to match up the male & female counterparts as they were developing!! Go get this movie...

Great dialogue between the characters. its nice to see Gina back on screen. enjoyed the differnt kinds of love expressed not just between a guy and a girl but love for companionship, love for attention and love for the sake of love. Cuba is certainly aging but he did a fantastic job as a love-eager man.

You have to watch this one more than once just to catch all the quick punch lines. To me it is like watching an episode of something like West Wing. The dialog is fast and you have to pay attention to keep up. I enjoyed the movie and the What Love Is topic really hits home.

Tom (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) arrives home all eager to celebrate Valentine's Day with his girlfriend Sara. He even plans on asking Sara to marry him and has gathered four of his closest buddies to witness the occasion. Much to his dismay, however, he discovers upon entering the house that Sara has packed her bags and left him a Dear John letter, effectively putting an end to Tom's vision of eternal marital bliss. Further complicating the issue is the fact that one of Tom's friends, mistakenly believing he's going to a party, has invited a bunch of hot young ladies from his bar to join in the festivities.

You could be forgiven for assuming that "What Love Is" began life as a theatrical work, since writer/director Mars Callahan has filmed it in the form usually reserved for stage-to-screen adaptations. It all takes place on a single set, with the characters declaiming at one another in that histrionic way that stage actors alone are wont to do. The result is an inert, talky, claustrophobic work riddled with heightened dialogue, pseudo-profundities, long-winded speechifying and manic performances. Each character is given his moment in the spotlight - whereupon he proceeds to air his grievances concerning women, gays, straights and each other - then hands the microphone off to the next person, who pretty much does the same.

Then we get the distaff view of things, as the ladies who arrive for the party barricade themselves in the restroom to discuss at exhausting length the outrageousness and inadequacies of men.

Finally, it all comes down to the mixing of the sexes as the party moves into high gear and the characters engage in verbal jousting about the problems and pitfalls of romantic relationships.

It's Valentines Day evening. Cuba intends to propose to his girl this evening so he invites some friends over to share the experience, only to get a "Dear John" letter when he arrives home. When the guys arrive, woman bashing begins and then the women arrive, invited by the guys. Their discussion in the bathroom is enlightening. But after all of the angry words of pain, all of the advice, in the end, he gets it; Cuba finally realizes what love is. I enjoy the dialogue in this film; it has much truth in it -- much wisdom. The character Sal is freshly wounded and finds a kindred soul. He could use a larger vocabulary. He drives much of the dialogue.

This lacks guns, chase scenes, and drugs, but it has lots of use of the f-bomb and lots of insight.
