Parness is a tourist in the land of mental illness, sitting in the air-conditioned tour bus of his mind looking out at the people below & scratching his head for clumsy jokes.

Starts out pretty funny, but the suicide theme runs out of gas during the road trip and they didn't seem to have anywhere else interesting to take this couple.

Distracting in both appearance and tone; keeping us from caring if either of these characters find love or death first. Death would be preferable.

Audience Reviews for My Suicidal Sweetheart (Crazy for Love)

½

Another offbeat romantic comedy, this one lacks originality and likeable characters. It leaves an unpleasante taste while watching. After about 30 minutes I just didn't care about the movie anymore. This film is titled Crazy For Love on DVD, and is also known as My Suicidal Sweetheart. It's never a good sign when a movie has several different titles.

Parness is clearly a bumbling tourist in the land of mental illness, sitting in the air-conditioned tour bus of his mind looking out at the people below & scratching his head for clumsy jokes.

This film attempts to be many things... funny, intelligent, strange, profound, and some sort of modern day Harold and Maude. It fails at all of these things. The characters are all robotic and impersonal - not even an inner monologue voice-over helps give any dimension. The style of acting was definitely on purpose to achieve a certain effect, but the script isn't strong enough and the direction isn't interesting enough to pull it off. This film fails to be funny. The dialog sounds like it comes from a terrible play written by a high school student.
