Movie Reviews

Witty, Funny, and Meaningful

"The Pompatus of Love is one of my all-time favorite movies. The fast paced dialogue is always entertaining, and this movie addresses an issue everybody has to face at some point: how to attain a fulfilling love life before you go crazy trying. Very funny, and with a light enough touch that it'll make you think without being cheezy. You've got to see this movie!"
Good start but it tapers off......

"This film starts off well, with witty dialogue and dead-on portrayals of 30 somethings dealing with the urban dating scence. After awhile, though, the film seems overlong and the characterizations run out of steam. The guys in the film are definitely self-absorbed and verbal in a way that, upon reflection, may be particularly recognizeable to city dwellers. I wonder whether the experiences depicted here will resonate as well with non-urbanites."

"Now you may wonder why i gave this movie a 5 star rating. Well... I rented it thinking it would be another "kitchy" indie movie. I was very suprised to see that this movie had a amazing plot, and the story just make me sit there for around 40 minutes after pondering love and life and all that stuff. It is an amazing movie. Well worth the 5 star. A hip love movie for the 90's"
Terrific for anyone who has ever dated in the 90's!

"The plot, dialogue and acting are the best I have seen in a long time. It's quick and quick-witted. There is not one dull scene in this entire film about men dating in the 90's. Each character is well-drawn and three-dimensional. Each of the actors are excellent and believable throughout the film. Jon Cryer is angst-ridden (as his roles often are) and again he brings a great sense of humor and warmth to the role. Adrian Pasdar portrays a "playboy-type" character but still manages to make him likeable (and also hilariously funny). Mia Sara is beautiful but her part is not large enough! This is an unusually real, yet hysterical "romp" through dating in this 90's."
