Very little that anyone here says, or does, has the slightest connection to any known reality, and if a film is going to perform an autopsy on love, the corpse should at least be recognizable.

An airless, fragmented feature that's been kicking around since 2007.

Ever fast-forward through a late-night cable romance just to get to the good parts? This amateurish relationship dramedy features all the stuff you'd skip, and nothing else.

If He's Just Not That Into You is a film for women who want to be lied to, then The Trouble with Romance offers a conniving counterpoint for men.

The performances are convincing, and director Gene Rhee does a good job of outlining the messiness of human affections here, showing how we don't always know what we really want or how to get it.

The roaring void of talent doesn't stop.
