Love Wedding Repeat - 2020 - 5/10
A man shares a fabulous few days with his sister’s best friend.
Chemistry, sparks, the works. Yet he bungles the parting, and she gets away.
Three years on, at his sister’s wedding, the flame returns.
Rom com is a showcase for formulaic writing.
Quirky, broad based characters – check.
Preposterous situations – check.
Wait, there’s not enough plot! How about, at the end, we hit RESET and start again, and change one bit.
(The reset has been used in dozens of films, my favorite being Run, Lola, Run.)
Inoffensive date flick … mmm … watchable / forgettable.
