September 10, 2005
With 3rd Rock from the Sun's French Stewart in the lead, it's hard to not think 'sitcom' while watching this 'un-romantic comedy.'

They got one word in the title right.

January 1, 2000
A one-dimensional comedy that mostly falls flat.

January 1, 2000
Love Stinks offers up the very modest pleasures of a middling TV show, something you'd watch only if the cable went out on a Friday night.
January 1, 2000
A sitcom episode stretched to fit, with raunch and language added for shock effect and cheap laughs.
January 1, 2000
Inane writing and a flaccid plot.
January 1, 2000
It's fun while it unfolds, but is instantly forgettable.
January 1, 2000
Just when you thought it was safe to go into the movie theater, along comes Love Stinks.

January 1, 2000
Franklin relies too much on easy laugh-getters such as flatulence and crotch-kick gags, but at least he does provide his half-baked script with a fairly satisfying wrap-up.
January 1, 2000
Franklin has a certain talent for one-liners -- which Stewart delivers with rat-a-tat precision -- but the result is a spiteful movie that savors its own venom a little too well.

January 1, 2000
Wilson, who occasionally seems above all this, has a flatness that makes you wonder what Jenny McCarthy would have done with the part.
January 1, 2000
Love Stinks exceeds its expectations.
January 1, 2000
Wilson's performance consists of spouting demeaning dialog.
January 1, 2000
Love Stinks smells like a bad sitcom.
January 1, 2000
Love Stinks can make you feel good, especially if you've been involved in a bad relationship.
January 1, 2000
While the film bills itself as an unromantic comedy, the truth is that it's an unromantic un-comedy.
January 1, 2000
Love Stinks is proof that even an awful, poorly executed idea can be borderline entertaining if it has enough funny jokes.
January 1, 2000
Sometimes it stinks with the sweat of failure. But sometimes it's as bitterly funny as its makers could hope.
January 1, 2000
A cinematic exercise in overstatement.
January 1, 2000
Witless romantic comedy with hooks and lines that are all stinkers.
