Loving Jezebel (1999)



Critic Consensus: The script is cliched and badly written. The female characters aren't believable, and the movie is not funny.

Movie Info

Writer-director Kwyn Bader debuts with this romantic comedy about finding the right woman at the wrong time. Theodorus (Hill Harper) has a knack for falling for "Jezebels," women who are already involved with someone else. His romantic misadventures begin in Kindergarten and continue with a platonic relationship with beautiful acting student Frances (Nicole Ari Parker), a fling with a teddy bear-obsessed lass, and a passionate crush on fledgling poet and very married Samantha (Laurel Holloman). Loving Jezebel was screened at the 1999 Chicago Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Loving Jezebel

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (12)

It's hard to dislike a romantic comedy that's infatuated with the concept of love.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3.5/5

Somehow manages to squander both an appealing cast and an inviting Manhattan setting.

January 1, 2000

A beguiling flow and grace to [a]strenuously inconsequential script.

January 1, 2000

Captures the embarrassment of foreplay, but it could use a few lessons in the art of seduction.

January 1, 2000

An oafish wish-fulfillment wankfest.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

A slight, unpleasant romantic comedy.
