Funny About Love provides an opportunity to spend 101 minutes in the presence of the most cloying, inane and annoying dialogue I've heard in many a moon, punctuated only by occasional lapses into startling bad manners.

Audience Reviews for Funny About Love

Very limp and soppy romantic comedy about a couple wanting to have a baby, then breaking up in time after they can't have one then they meet other people and eventually after realising they do love each other they get back together again. I only saw this simply because it was a Wilder film and usually most of his films are good fun but this really is a film for the ladies haha not really funny, alittle slapstick here and there but mainly its a light hearted ladies flick about a young couple and their relationships with each other and others, more of a gentle drama directed by Leonard 'Mr Spock' Nimoy of all people!

Christine Lahti is a fine actress to fine to be stuck in junk like this.
