Don't make them like they used to
30 October 2015 | by timlin-4See all my reviews

This is a very light comedy involving multiple love triangles (or really more complicated geometries) of confused, mismatched, or ambivalent lovers. The script includes witty dialogue and humorous situations; most of all on display is the ridiculousness of the human compulsion to pair up. It's somewhat difficult to maintain interest in a movie like this that has such a narrow scope and such foolish characters. The men of course especially come off as idiots, and one loser attracts far more female interest than is believable. The women are somewhat more clever, though they don't escape humiliation. But ultimately it's the loveliness of the leading ladies that carries the movie.
