Ever since the murder of his wife (Kristen Marie Perry), Rob (Sanjay Rao), a slightly delusional man who's constantly exaggerating his talents and who thinks himself to be an excellent detective, tries to find her killer, a man known as Jack S. - and his cop friend Frank (Jeff Riberdy) even provides him with clues from time to time. And the latest clue leads to barmaid Hannah (Emily Trent), who's apparently in an abusive relationship with Jack. It doesn't take Rob long to make up a plan that's beneficial for both him - he gets his hands on the killer of his wife - and her - she gets rid of Jack -, which involves faking her murder and leaving incriminating evidence behind that directly points to Jack. Now the reasoning is, if Jack is incriminated in the murder, he'll try to track down Hannah and this way ultimately walk into Rob's trap. Now Rob and Hannah plan all of this quite meticulously - with the help of local videostore clerk and wannabe screenwriter Antonio (Chad Hamilton) -, but then when the trap's finally set, Hannah bolts and the man (Raleigh Moore) Rob takes for Jack turns out to actually be a cop confronting him with some uncomfortable facts ...


Now my synopsis probably doesn't make it very clear, but Bad Romance is actually a comedy - and a pretty funny one at that, as it plays with many neo-noir elements, takes them apart and puts them back together awkwardly, exaggerates or understates genre tropes to comical effect, and relishes in loading the whole thing with several unexpected plottwists too many while seemingly making up its psychological undercurrents while it goes along. But it's more than just a genre parody, as it actually manages to tell an engaging story and doesn't shy away from serious or even sad moments to break up the comedy a bit. And a cast that mixes comedic and straight actors to full effect as well as a genre-savvy direction see to it that this has turned out to be a wildly funny genre film.
