Love Potion No. 9 Reviews

  • Jan 21, 2021

    Really good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. While this is a trip in the way back machine, it was surprising to see Sandra Bullock "She's All That" almost 10 years earlier, and it didn't work then either. While I think the mind control substance concept is great, there is an even better zombie movie to be had in this. But they do an excellent job presenting the story, and it's got a lot of good humor to it as well.

    As a social scientist, I get a kick at how this playful movie about using a love potion also has some core behavioral truths about love. Plus, hello? Anne Bancroft as a psychic? Sandra Bullock and Tate Donovan as ugly nerds? what a hoot.

    This movie is really good. Great plot, well shot and perfectly cast. Whoever doesn't like this movie probably preffers Miss Congeniality.

    Fun movie with a happy ending. A go-to movie when my husband and I have had a challenging day.

    It's definitely a fun "what-if" movie, and despite about a 50/50 split on good performances and bad, as well as a poorer-than-average script, it's enjoyable. It's fairly apparent that it was produced on a small budget. So many of the songs are in the public domain (such as classical music in a movie that isn't ABOUT classical music). Sandra Bullock does a nice job, which I'm sure contributed to her increasing fame. Again, enjoyable, the kind of movie that if you were flipping channels and bumped into it, you'd probably watch.

    If there were potions like this, there would be millions of $ for it and against it, plus lots of lawsuits. The film works though.
