review by
Mike Haberfelner

Blake (Chris Taylor) is successful, handsome, charming, and has a background in high school and college football - so it's no trouble at all for him to find women to date. However, while it's easy for him to pick up women, he's not all that successful in actually picking them, as every woman he dates turns out to be pretty crazy after a (usually very short) while, and thus he just aimlessly drifts from one relationship into the next, to a point where he doesn't actually invest all that much emotion anymore. But this kind of life also gets tiring, to a point where he's on the verge of giving up seeking out relationships altogether - much to the dismay of his best friend Clayton (Trevon Townsend), who wants him as best man at his wedding - but won't have it that Blake shows up without a date. But then, at Clayton's work, Blake runs into Mel (Corin Clay), a natural beauty and down-to-earth girl, and it's love at first sight - for him, as his usual pick-up lines don't work on her, nor does his womanizing smoothness. But Blake figures she's the one, so seeing himself through her eyes he starts to change, and eventually wins her around. And after quite a bit of wooing from his side, they become a serious couple, so much so that he introduces her to his mother (Pat Jordan). Everything seems to be perfect - until Blake's ex Kayleigh (Jasmine Dunlap), who has never accepted their break-up, shows up, laying her claim on him. And she has her way to convince Mel that he has never really gotten over her, even if that's a blatant lie. With his past having caught up with him, Blake finds himself back to square one, if not worse, and rather clueless on how to win heartbroken Mel back ...


Now I admit that romantic comedy is far from my favourite genre - but that said, I really liked this movie, especially because it doesn't follow the genre formula too closely, instead concentrates on its well fleshed out characters, and knows when to be funny (and sometimes really funny) but also when to let the dramatic aspects of the story win the upper hand. Plus the movie mostly stays away from exaggerations and rather downplays the kitsch moments that so often sink movies of its ilk. And a subtle enough direction and a likable and relatable cast sure help making this into a very entertaining film.
