review by
Mike Haberfelner

Level-headed Della (Amelia Favata) and penniless poet Kyle (Adam S. Dixson) have been friends for years now, a friendship that works because they're not romantically involved with one another and neither wants to "take it to the next level" ... and then Della introduces Kyle to her other best friend, bubbly Gwen (Erin Stamp), and sparks fly from day one - and suddenly when going out with these two, Della feels like the fifth wheel. Then though, at a poetry club, Della meets chicken-themed (!) comedian Jeff (Eric Witkowski), and the two like one another from the get-go, and love is in the air ... until Gwen ditches Kyle because she felt smothered by him and starts flirting with Jeff - without ever going through the trouble of even noticing that Della might be interested as well -, and before you know it, these two are a couple, while Kyle immediately starts dating Della's other good friend, selfish beauty Allison (Casey Litzenberger) ... and now with all her friends dating each other but not being willing to see their respective exes, going out with her buddies becomes difficult for Della - and things take a turn for the worse when Allison ditches Kyle in favour of Jeff, and then asks both Della and Gwen to be bridesmaids: Critical mass is about to be reached ...

 

I guess in today's world, a film just like this would be termed "romantic comedy", as in essence it is - just one that doesn't follow the formula, one that isn't sugar-coated, one that doesn't fall into the same clichées over and over. Instead it's about real, relatable people played by a likeable cast that have problems one can identify with and find themselves in situations based on everyday life - if heightened for comical effect at times. And as for the humour, it's neither too nice nor goes the gross-out route but rather comes across as authentic. So in essence, while this might be labeled a romantic comedy per se, it's charming enough that you'll probably like it whether or not you're at all into the genre.
