Audience Reviews for Love Stinks

    This movie rocks. I love this movie. It has some of the funniest acting and scripting that I have seen in a while. I can't remember when I laughed so hard. This movie is sort of like "War of the Roses," except this is much more psychotic. I highly recommend this movie to those who like their comedies as black as they come. Plot: French Stewart, who is a TV writer, falls in love with a babe who MUST get married soon. She does everything to advance the relationship far beyond its years. Of course, French does not want this, and it leads to some very dark and funny circumstances. It uses sophisticated humor (i.e. how this affects his show and life overall) as well as completely low-brow humor (i.e. using farts as a weapon of revenge.) Script: This movie has some very funny lines. There are some lines that I almost choked on because I was not suspecting them. I am sure that the next time I see this movie I will pick up some very quotable quotes. Listen carefully to what they say, and you will be highly rewarded. Acting: This has some of the funniest and truest acting that I have ever seen. I actually liked Bill Bellamy in his role. Go see this movie when it comes out just for him. French is really decent, but you have to go with him because "Love will make you do f***ed up things. Everybody else works, especially the girlfriend. The ending just rocks, and it is very fitting. (Unfortunately I have been seeing the ending in the previews...it should be saved.) Everybody should go see this movie. It is very good, and I did not even notice the editing because I was laughing so hard. I took a point off simply because some of the scenes I had seen before

    I don't know why, but this movie just cracks me up everytime I watch it. I think I liked the fact that finally a movie that shows the psychotic girlfriend & that the fall of a relationship is not always on the shoulders of the guy.

    This is a funny movie. Basically about this man who meets this beautiful woman at a wedding. They seem to hit it off. Next thing they know they are married. And that is when his new wife seems to change personalities for the worse. The movie pokes fun of marriage, relationships and other stereotypes of women and men. French Stewart and Bridgette Wilson are both very funny in this. I got some good laughs from the film. Worth a watch.
