A sloppy romantic comedy that’s low on humor and romance. Star Cinema love stories are a lot better than this, and that’s not saying much. The Fontana di Trevi (Fountain of Love) may seem like a nice touch to the story, but too much slapstick and logical lapses got in the way.
Target Audience: stupid people in love
The lineup of movies showing this week seems more promising. Adolf Alix recreates the Shakespeare tragedy; this time, in a modern Filipino setting with Romeo at Juliet. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor and Jim Carrey play gay lovebirds slash jailbirds slash con men in I Love You Philip Morris. See you at the movies.
