News & Interviews for Love Stinks
Critic Reviews for Love Stinks
A cinematic exercise in overstatement.
The title is a misnomer. This movie has nothing to do with love; it's about lust, lucre and well-paid losers.
Holy mother of the bride, what bile was Jeff Franklin drinking when he came up with this curdled revenge fantasy?
A cut-rate romantic comedy of the kind that Adam Sandler would star in if his movies made no money.
Jeff Franklin's idea of cutting-edge comedy writing runs to the kind of vulgar, unfunny shtick that puts the gag in 'gag.'
Audience Reviews for Love Stinks
This movie rocks. I love this movie. It has some of the funniest acting and scripting that I have seen in a while. I can't remember when I laughed so hard. This movie is sort of like "War of the Roses," except this is much more psychotic. I highly recommend this movie to those who like their comedies as black as they come.
Plot: French Stewart, who is a TV writer, falls in love with a babe who MUST get married soon. She does everything to advance the relationship far beyond its years. Of course, French does not want this, and it leads to some very dark and funny circumstances. It uses sophisticated humor (i.e. how this affects his show and life overall) as well as completely low-brow humor (i.e. using farts as a weapon of revenge.)
Script: This movie has some very funny lines. There are some lines that I almost choked on because I was not suspecting them. I am sure that the next time I see this movie I will pick up some very quotable quotes. Listen carefully to what they say, and you will be highly rewarded.
Acting: This has some of the funniest and truest acting that I have ever seen. I actually liked Bill Bellamy in his role. Go see this movie when it comes out just for him. French is really decent, but you have to go with him because "Love will make you do f***ed up things. Everybody else works, especially the girlfriend.
The ending just rocks, and it is very fitting. (Unfortunately I have been seeing the ending in the previews...it should be saved.) Everybody should go see this movie. It is very good, and I did not even notice the editing because I was laughing so hard. I took a point off simply because some of the scenes I had seen before
