Audience Reviews for Love & Sex

  • Nov 10, 2010
    "Love is Ecstasy and agony, freedom and imprisonment, belonging and loneliness. It's what keeps us together when life tears us apart. So when you find that perfect man, hold on tight and then call me so I can run over there and see what he looks like and laugh because he doesn't exist you sad, perky little optimistic Suckers!!!!" Kate (Famke Janssen)is a jaded young woman who has trouble meeting and dating guys. Throughout the movie, you get to meet several of her loser boyfriends and are subjected to Kate's cynical negative outlook on love and relationships. She says, early in the film, that she's better at giving oral sex than at understanding a loving relationship; if this is the extent of her knowledge of men, no wonder she has problems lol! Favreau plays artist Adam Levy who meets Kate at one of his art exhibits. Soon thereafter, they begin dating and enjoy frequent sex. At first, their relationship is nothing but great and passionate. But as time passes the passion naturally fades and, eventually, Adam decides to call it quits with Kate. Overall, the movie is filled with witty dialogue, humor and honesty and takes you on a bumpy up close ride at love, heartache and the wonderful and sometimes painful art of making/breaking up.

    Yeah, I'll admit it, I liked this. At first glance it looks like another chick flick, but John Favreau totally turned it into a great comedy. It was totally worth seeing the movie just for his comedic timing. Oh, and this guy in it does just about the most hilariously bad Robert DeNiro impressions i've ever seen.

    tick...tick...tick...tick...yep, all romantic-comedy cliches ticked off. Nearly unwatchable.

    Surprisingly well made, and a double surprising good cast of the two leads, instead of the usual flat boring actors this movies usually have (Richard Gere, Sandra Bullock, Hugh Grant, etc etc) Jon Favreau makes up for a very convicing average joe type of character, and Famke Janssen can actually act, she just happens to pick shitty roles in shitty movies. I guess those pay more than movies like this one. Also, this gives some hope to any average guy out there that maybe, just maybe, getting a piece of ass like Famke Janssen is not imposible....Nah, it is impossible, better stop dreaming.
