Not Since You Reviews
Director: Jeff Stephenson
Summary: Formerly close college friends reunite for a weekend wedding, and old feelings arise, causing both conflicts and romantic dilemmas. Married Amy (Kathleen Robertson) finds herself torn when her old love, Sam (Desmond Harrington), appears after years abroad. Meanwhile, Howard (Jon Abrahams) tries to forgive Billy (Will Estes) for stealing his college sweetheart (Sunny Mabrey), while dispirited Fudge and Southern girl Doogs form a tenuous bond.
My Thoughts: "I am pleasantly surprised that this film was not as bad as I had thought it would be. The acting is good and the story is OK as well. Some of it was a bit cheesy, but not over the top. I haven't seen most of these actor's in a film in quite some time.
The film is a bit slow but I think it was done intentionally so you could focus on the character's and their stories. Although, you really don't get to know them enough to care for them. I really liked Jon Abrahams and Sara Rue in the movie. They were fun character's. A good little romance flick that was in the end really about finding closure. Worth taking a look at."
(2009) Not Since You
Co-written and directed by Jeff Stephenson, starring Desmond Harrington as Sam Nelson a struggling writer, who's just stopped by to a town near Georgia, for a wedding invitation. Unbeknownst, to find out that his ex-girlfriend, Amy Smith (Kathleen Robertson) of seven years had already been married to a guy who has just given him a lift from the airport. This is just one of many blatant unresolved issues we're showcased here which is obviously another cheapie 'reunion' type of movie. We're then introduced to more quirky characters as it's reminiscent of "The Big Chill", "Beautiful Girls", "Return of the Secaucus Seven" etc... Take my word for it, all of these examples and more are superiorly better.
I practically had to re-watch the beginning twice to grasp hold of it's several characters since it's blatantly thrush at it's viewers assuming we would already understand their petty love problems. One of the most convoluted characters I had ever witnessed in a movie is when a guy who does nothing but drink beers all day and all night, I dunno, by the name of Joey 'Fudge' Fudgler (Elden Henson) and throughout the entire movie, the movie never shows him drunk. This must be the first. It's entire synopsis as well as it's dialogue is like something I'd write if I was still in high school trying to hit puberty. The only authenticity this movie contained is the final few minutes, ending which can't make up for the garbage viewers had to endure.
