Defining the terms of the question,
This review is from: What Love Is (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.
