Review

This indie romantic comedy comes with a surprising and welcome darkness. - Jeffrey M. Anderson (Combustible Celluloid)

A rare breed of romantic comedy that actually dares to be funny. - Molly Celaschi (2snaps.tv)

Xs & Os gives a voice to everyone in the twists of love and lusting, making it stand out from others and is an all around fun time and a refreshing change to most one-sided romantic comedies. - Kelsey Zukowski (Film Arcade) Proof that not all romantic comedies have to be air-headed to be funny. - Serena Markstrom (The Register Guard) --xoxothemovie.com

X's & O's review by Molly Celaschi

Simon is a geeky scientist who is not so smart in the Love Dept. He sets his sights much to high and like a typical guy he foolishly lets pretty blonde Jane walk all over him. Enter sweet co-worker Trese and cad roommate Lorenzo and you have a recipe for disaster. Or a really good movie. Let's first start off by saying that this was an indie romantic comedy that will hopefully make its way onto DVD in the near future. There are so many fun characters here. Simon advises Jane to lower her standards when he is ironically chasing in his own Quixote-esque pursuit. So pathetic is he that he even keeps a mirror in his front pocket for Jane to use whenever she desires staring at herself. There is the Chigger, which is a Chinese wigger, who treats his girlfriend like a doormat. Ironically, he changes his bad ways and she isn t quite as interested in him anymore. There is the hot roommate Lorenzo (swoon!) who may actually have a heart of gold. I say they do a male version of Pretty Woman with him in the lead. Take that Julia Roberts! Simon himself looks like a combination of a young Jude Law and Ray Liotta. Alright, there are a couple of hot chicks too. Jane is a gorgeous gal, but her behavior is disgusting. I'm sure there are plenty of guys who will like her despite that. And I really dug Trese's alcoholic closeted lesbian roommate Vivian. Poor girl needs some love. Oh the laughs are aplenty. There is the scene where Simon explains to a kid that it is God s fault that he missed a basketball shot. Lorenzo s ex-girlfriend had left him for a creepy Christian who reminded the hell out of me of Preacher Boy in There Will Be Blood. Simon moans that a woman attached by the head to her twin sister somehow manages to get laid more than he does. And then there is the weird Christian hip hop dance (!?!) by a couple of young ladies. But I laughed the hardest during a poetry slam where a gentleman recited, Paradigms. I drop a Pair of Dimes in a meter. Please tell me I am not the only person that gets that joke (Hint: Paradigms is pronounced like pair uh dimes. )

But what gets better still is that we are given insight into these characters especially when you learn of how Simon and Lorenzo the Lothario become best friends. The added backstory makes you care more about the characters. Writer/ director Kedar Korde even managed to throw in a little bit of Columbine shooting-type mass hysteria in the mix.

This is another one of those rare breed romantic comedies that dares to be...actually funny. I place this in the ranks of Forgetting Sarah Marshall in that it has something to appeal to both men and women. It portrays both genders in a fairly accurate light. And as opposed to the lame rom-coms that focus on one idiotic couple overcoming one simple problem to reach the end goal of living happily ever after, this film showcases an ensemble cast with varying problems. There should be at least one situation the viewer can identify with.
Favorite Quote: Girl after a one-night stand, I can t remember anything. I think you came in my brain.

Product Description

Xs & Os is a hip romantic comedy that takes a humorously genuine look at post-college relationships. A circle of friends in San Francisco finds out the hard way that it is not all hugs and kisses in the game of love and that everyone needs a strategy to score. Bookish biologist Simon (Clayne Crawford A Walk to Remember) lusts after Jane (Sarah Wright The House Bunny), a blonde beauty who barely knows he exists. Against the advice of his womanizing best friend, Lorenzo (Warren Christie October Road), Simon decides to make Jane jealous by dating his lab partner, Trese (Judy Marte Raising Victor Vargas). But every part of Simon s plan falls apart, trapping him between the pursuit of a hopeless dream and unexpected, real feelings for someone. Also starring Kel Mitchell (Good Burger, Kenan and Kel), Lynn Chen (Saving Face), Azita Ghanizada (Alphas), Gino Anthony Pesi (Battle: Los Angeles) and Jill Bennett (And Then Came Lola). With Candice Accola (The Vampire Diaries) featuring her hit song The Break Up Song on the Xs & Os soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars X's and O's Scores a Winning Game Plan June 16, 2011
Format:DVD
Billed as an indie film, X's and O's surpasses the indie label doing away with long pointless expositions, contrived "intellectual" storylines, pretentious "Clerks"-like dialogue, and shooting on 35mm instead of DV gives the movie a classic Hollywood grade look and feel. X's and O's gets back to basics of characters and story. It focuses on the various relationships among a group of young adults in the San Francisco bay area. Each relationship is as different and interesting as the people who are in it. The "different and interesting" qualities can be attributed to the beautifully cast ensemble who represent the cultural diversity of the bay area - white, black, Latino, Asian, middle-eastern, gay, straight, confused, pseudo-gangster, insecure, etc. There are several sub-plots and storylines that help you understand the motivations of each character, and that in turn helps explain how each character affects the decisions of each other. For a romantic comedy, the movie refrains from employing Hollywood cliches like grand gestures of romance, chases across great distances to profess love, overcoming dramatic obstacles to reach emotional epiphanies, and the predictable happily-ever ending. Instead, X's and O's opts to paint a picture of conflict, insecurities, self-contradictions, redemption, and the little trivial things that constitute real romance and relationships. The ending itself is cleverly constructed to be left to interpretation and lends itself for a possible sequel. Though labeled as a romantic comedy, X's and O's is definitely not just a chick flick. It is a movie that even dudes can admit they watched and enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars X's and O's.....good movie! April 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this movie because it showed what happens on both sides of the coin as far as relaionships are concerned. What I don't understand is why this movie never made it to the theaters because I believe that it would've done well. The actors and actresses did a wonderful job with the story, and I look forward to seeing them more. My best friend told me about Judy Marte a long time ago, and I've been a fan of hers ever since!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Indie November 12, 2010
Format:DVD
Great directorial debut and indie film. X's and O's IS NOT and i repeat NOT the typical chick flick but more of a film for both sexes to enjoy together. I'm not going to describe the plot in case of spoilers but I must say, the film has some funny cameos of up and coming actors (Ryles, the Christian guy and etc), an interesting story that keeps you entertained, overall good actors, and clever writing. If your into slap stick funny then this isn't the film for you, the dialogue is what makes this film a romantic-comedy with a slice of drama added into it. Check it out and enjoy. There are many horrible indie films out there that are being watched and purchased every day... why not take a look at one that is actually good and enjoyable from start to end. Can't wait to see the director and writers next project.
