It's downright radical for filmmakers to drop the edgy, been-there sarcasm that infuses many independent films for a full-blown swan dive into fantasy. It would be even better if the fantasy had worked.
An appealing, low-budget musical cowritten by and starring Isabel Rose as Billie, whose pluck and talent are tonic -- if as shopworn as her thrift-store threads.
Ends up little more than a vanity piece for Rose and an exercise in style over substance for Cary.
To borrow a word from another American standard, Anything but Love, is hardly unforgettable. But if you're looking for the movie equivalent of comfort food, then there's something to dig into here.
[An] ungainly little movie.
Filmed in the colors of newborn Technicolor, plotted as a tribute to the conventions of Hollywood romance, filled with standard songs, it's by and for people who love those kinds of movies.
Without the bawdiness and irony of the Doris Day tribute Down With Love, Anything but Love will also bring to mind the comedies of Judy Holliday.
Obvious, but sweet-tempered and lovingly put together enough to generally trump such shortcomings. For fans of breezy, feel-good fare only.
All the quirky characters feel as familiar and comfortable as the supporting cast in your own life, even when it comes to the irritating ones.
The script, co-written by Rose with director Robert Cary, is flatfooted in the extreme, lacking any comic value or real human insight.
It's a good indie movie that's perfect for couples, and you won't be embarrassed to take mom along, too.
It all comes off with the crowd-pleasing potential of another My Big Fat Greek Wedding, albeit one starved of much of the wit and outrageous ethnic color.
