Audience Reviews for The Pick-Up Artist

    Nothing special, but this really finds its own in the second half. The first half is just a little too happy go lucky and silly, but when the love story kicks in between Robert Downey Jr. and Molly Ringwald, it's smooth sailing. The premise is interesting and natural for its release period. It takes the term ladies man and takes it to a more extreme level. RDJ holds all the cards here, his performance is comedic gold with a touch of genuine dramatic acting.

    Your typical Boy Meet Girl.. girl sleep with boy then ditches boy, boy tries to get girl back by stalking girl and paying girl's father's gambling debts. Cute.

    The story is kind of a mish-mash of two different stories, and the dialogue is horrible, but there are a bunch of great actors in the movie. The actors are the only reason to watch it, and they can't even help the movie that much. Overall, it's not a good movie.

    I enjoyed this one. I thought Robert Downey Jr and Molly Ringwald had great chemistry and made the film really work. Not to mention great supporting cast by Harvel Keital and Dennis Hopper. Story wasn't anything magnificent, but then again, most romantic movies don't. Overall it's worth a watch because it is enjoyable to see Robert and Molly on the screen together.
