Sasha (Suzi Lorraine) and Kyle (Kyle Hoskins) have seperated several
months ago and are only Kyle's signature on the papers away from getting a
divorce - but they have remained good friends throughout and still meet
for coffee once a week. Sasha is actually dating again, and tonight, she
definitely wants to have sex with Scott (Steven Lee Edwards) - it's just
... she's totally dry.
For whatever reason, she thinks this is because
she feels guilty standing in the way of Kyle's happiness, so she has to
hook him up with a woman to help him come over their separation. Kyle, who
has admittedly been single since the separation, says this is bullshit,
says he has moved on ... but she coaxes him into, ummm, "helping her
out" - meaning he lets her set up a profile for him on a dating site
and pick girls for blind dates - dates that tend to end in disaster, hot
because Kyle's so incredibly picky but because the woman Sasha chooses are
... well, kind of "special". And the one woman (Rachael Robbins)
Kyle really does get along with turns out to be a single mom, and Kyle's
not ready for that.
But sending Kyle out on blind dates has somehow
totally ticked off Sasha - she actually begins stalking Kyle on the dates
she has set up, and soon enough she's no longer sure what she's more
afraid of, that he'll actually fail again or that he might succeed. And
eventually, he of course catches her stalking him ...
Lizbeth Sawyers gives a scene-stealing performance as Kyle's sister and Sasha's
best friend/roommate trying to talk sense into her, while director Travis
Legge plays Kyle's slobby roommate - who in the end actually gets the girl
- Lizbeth Sawyers that is.
Dry Spell is a
romantic comedy that's what romantic comedies should be like: It's not
trying to suck up to its female audience exclusively by making things
sugary sweet and unrealistically romantic (heck, it even has an ambivalent
[if orgasmic] ending), nor does it go the gross-out root to keep the male
dates of the female viewers in their seats - instead it tries (and
succeeds) to tell an amusing story about normal people, and even if the
premise is far-fetched, it works in the context of the film. Add to this a
subtle directorial effort and a cast that's both competent and likeable
... and suddenly you find yourself liking a romantic comedy of all things.
