"WARNER's ROMANTIC COMEDY: 4 FILM FAVORITES is a collection of at-best middling movies.
Extra points however for top notch transfer quality.
ADDICTED TO LOVE-- Sam's girl, Linda, leaves him for Anton, who dumps Maggie so he can take up with Linda. Sam and Maggie join forces to exact revenge on their ex's, but end up falling for each other. Director Griffin Dunne cast his father (author and OJ trial expert) Dominick in a small role.
HOME FRIES-- The married man who got unwed Sally pregnant is frightened to death by the guns his stepsons fire in his general direction. Fearing Sally knows they are responsible for the man's heart attack, one of the two takes a job at the hamburger joint where she waitresses. For Drew Barrymore fans only.
ROCK STAR-- Chris fronts a tribute band at night. His dead-on imitation of a heavy metal lead singer brings him an offer to front the group he's been copying. With this comes instant celebrity, and more. Based on a true story. (Drummer Jason Bonham is the son of Led Zeppelin drummer John B.)
SUMMER CATCH-- Local Cape Cod boy dreams of trying out for the big leagues, but he gets distracted by a beautiful young summer visitor. Minor roles for several sports celebrities, including former baseball bad boy Dick Allen (as the "scout in black hat").
If you'd enjoy four examples of "Love British Style," THE ROMANTIC FAVORITES COLLECTION is right up your mews.
