Steve Guttenberg is probably supposed to be a lovable loser in "A Novel Romance," a drab, clumsy film by Allie Dvorin, but he can manage to be merely annoying.

The literary conceit [adds] tired self-deprecating narration and arch chapter titles to the romantic-comedy mix.

Cohabitation "commandments" and talk of "chick flicks" further send the material into a cutesy tailspin, with the script's low point an egregious scene featuring Nate sneaking a peek at a silhouette of Jenny undressing behind a curtain.

As a showcase for Steve Guttenberg's 52-years-young pecs, A Novel Romance might have been better served as a workout video.

The film looks good, at least. But look past that, and there's not much there.
