A contemporary story of a woman who meddles with sex-role behaviour and takes a bet with her friend that she can get three handsome firemen, one after another, into her bed. And so she does. The thee guys unknowingly make a bet of a similar nature (whoever sleeps with her, wins), but one chickens out, and leaves the charming lady just before the night turns late. That guy eventually wins the heart of the protagonist. The apparent distinction between sex and love is the point the script writer is trying to make. The film is not particularly interesting, but the story is rather dynamic, the actors are pretty, rather beautiful erotic episodes are there to be found for those who are keen on the topic.
If a romcom's success can be measured by the chemistry of its two leads and how believable their on-screen pairing is, then the Opposite of Love doesn't cut the mustard. While some opposites may attract, there's just not enough happening between the protagonsists here to make you think for a minute they are made for each other. The only credible moments are when their differences tear them apart, and their eventual and inevitable reunion feels rushed, rote and wildly incredible. Hugo Silva has walked this path many times before, and while I'll gladly watch him display his considerable charms in any film, it would be nice if he took a few chances. The only chance the film itself takes is with the burgeoning lust between two homophobic workmates, although this ends up coming across as the least convincing thing on screen.
