02/25: Chilly Scenes Of Winter

This movie was supposed to be like, a romantic comedy. Sure, it was. I believe it turned out to be a boring, depressing film. Sure, it's a film thats to inspire hope and love. And it did. But I won't give away most of it.

John Heard (later to play Kevin McAllister's dad in Home Alone 1 & 2) plays Charles, a miserable thirty-something who's got a good job at the office but the people around him constantly all are 'debbie downers' until he meets a woman who works in the same building, Laura (Mary Beth Hart). At their first date together, he tries to persuade her to move in with him after he finds out Laura just left her husband. Many things happen between the two of them, on and off, but Charles pretty much creeps on her, which of course turns her away. No doubt Charles is in love with her.

The first part of the movie grabbed me for a moment, but most of it was just plain boring...until it got to the end. Some people would think this was a brilliantly written movie, and it probably was. At least for those who want an honest look at reality of love. I'd skip this one, unless you're really up for it.

My rating: 4 out of 10
