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

4.0 out of 5 stars Rapid Quick-fire May 28, 2008
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Defining the terms of the question January 1, 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars What Love Is April 25, 2008
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Movie Buff May 1, 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but true June 12, 2011
By Tracy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is hilarious. IF you really listen closely to all of the little nuiances, you can get a great deal from the movie. The title and the end of the movie coincide and are absolutely TRUE!! I laughed so hard during the movie, I nearly cried. Funny, insightful, true to the end of What Love Is?

If I had to live on a deserted island with only ten movies to watch the rest of my life, "What Love Is" would be one of them. I LOVE this movie. The dialogue and delivery is Red Bull fed intellect! It views like a stage play, and in no way is it a romantic comedy: it is a relationship reality show with a script.

My wife HATES the movie! The dialogue lays completely bare exactly what we all know about relationships but are afraid to admit. It strikes so close to the pain and uncertainty of many relationships, the shredding of one's heart, because it absolutely exposes the motivations and responses we've all experienced, but does so with humor, a cheeked tongue, and intellectual passion. Inspite of all the laughs you might feel the pins pricking your heart strings.

If you crave understanding relationships in general, especially new relationships, watch this uninhibited movie and absorb the raw truth and wisdom, complete with the F-bombs and sexual descriptions. But, if relationships live in your scary or insecurity closet, avoid "What Love Is" like an STD because it will infect you with the pain of truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love, What Love is. March 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All the talk and all the real stuff that would cost you thousands of dollars on a psychiatrist sofa to learn. It's down to earth and brutal with honesty. If you ever had your heart broken, you have got to own this movie. After you see it, give it to a friend who had their heart broken.

oh and it's funny too.
