Movie Reviews

Offbeat romantic comedy
Roland E. Zwick | Valencia, Ca USA | 02/25/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)


The provocatively titled "Love, Sex and Eating the Bones" is a tale about sexual frustration involving a man addicted to porn and a woman with a decidedly more conservative view of making love. The curious twist is that it is the woman who wants to get down-and-dirty in the sack and the man who finds himself unable to rise to the occasion.

Michael is an aspiring photographer who works as a security guard at a local parking garage. Jasmine is a successful ad agency executive who has sworn off both men and sex since her last abortive relationship two years ago. The two find themselves falling in love with one another but hit a rocky patch when Michael turns out to be impotent - at least when it comes to having to perform with a flesh-and-blood human being.

"Love, Sex and Eating the Bones" starts off as a sub-par, utterly conventional romantic comedy, but just when you're about to give up on it, it takes a daring and much appreciated detour into some previously unexplored territory. This is the first film I can remember to feature impotence as a major plot point and the first to acknowledge the detrimental effect that pornography can have on real-world relationships. That the film does so in the context of a romantic comedy in no way diminishes its value and, in fact, makes the topics more palatable and approachable than they might otherwise be. Moreover, the film is blessed with two extremely likable stars as its protagonists, Hill Harper and Marlyne Afflack, who tackle the tricky subject matter with charm and grace. Some may see the humor in the film as vulgar and crude at times, but I tend to think of it as realistic, accurately capturing the ways in which couples talk and deal with one another in the modern world. This turns out to be a better film than one might initially suspect."
Listen Up!!!

"I can honestly admit that at some point in my life I suffered from the same problem as Micheal, which made me buy the movie in the first place I was suprised at how well the movie was written, and how well it address the subject of how detrimental porn can be to a healthy relationship.Kudos to the stars and Kudos to the director for making a film like this. I suggest every man at some point in his life take a good hard look at this movie."
Brilliantly funny!

"This movie is hilarious and will have you cracking up with each scene. It is funny, yet romantic at the same time."
Surprisely well done

"I have a Movie Pass that allows me to rent unlimited movies per month. With this freedom, I Find myself trying out obscure films that I would not have otherwise.

This was one film that does not deserve its obscure status. Its well-written, funny, and engaging. Plus "Jasmine (maralyn afflack)" just may be THE most beautiful woman on EARTH. My god.

It was also nice to see a sister that was willing to accept a brother for what he wants to become, not for what he is (a lowly security guard).

This movie has official displaced Love Jones as my favorite black romantic comedy.

Anyway.. its well worth your dime."
