A true relationship movie, Great fun with a great cast....

"Well I have just seen this movie today and wanted to checkout what other people thought of it. So I came here and was shocked to see only a few reviews. Does this mean that this film is no good, NO! It means that it will remain something special to all of those who have seen this unexpected treasure. But please, tell your friends, neighbours and countrymen that this little movie should not be missed on any account. Right now I myself am going through a really bad break up with my girlfriend of 6 years. Who I still dearly love very much but we have decided to give ourselfs a little space and time. I can relate to this movie on all levels and it was a breath of fresh air in the romantic comedy genre. Both lead actors show great chemistry on screen and pull off genuine emotion. I have been a big fan of Jon Favreau since Swingers and we really do not see as much of him as we all should do. Famke Janssen is a great actress too, really shinning through. Watch this movie, again and again. It really is a must see! I 'CHEEESE SANDWICH' YOU ALL!!!!!"
One of the most honest movies I've ever seen...

"Love and Sex is perhaps my most favorite movie. It has a great cast and excellent chemistry between the two leading actors. It explores one woman's experience of relationships -- from losing her virginity to her high school French teacher to her eventual meeting of Adam (Jon Favreau) -- without skipping a beat. Unlike more popular "romantic comedies," Love and Sex is not about fairy tale romance but rather about the humor in real-life relationships and what happens when those relationships end. Highly recommended!"
Everything When Harry Met Sally missed...

"This is the part of when harry met sally that was missed, the TRUE relationship interpersonal relationship activity.I have read all the reviews here on this movie, they are all very accurate. This movie is perhaps the ultimate relationship/couple movie, with one real exception. This is the perfect movie for those couples in REAL relationships, relationships that are very honest and true. I love this movie, it has become one of those movies I pull out on rainy days, just to remember lost love. This is really a bellweather movie, couples that are really and truly in love and honest with each other will love this movie and talk about it over and over again; however, couples who have alot of hidden issues and things they cannot talk about this movie will make them very sad, because they long for the relationship this couple has."
You Have To Kiss Many Frogs Before You Find A Prince
Dumb Blonde Reviewing | In my bed | 05/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I got this DVD free in a magazine, and I'm normally very wary of DVDs that get handed out so freely - they're normally really bad! Or not worth the money you paid for the magazine. But this seemed tempting, as it was a romance (my favourite kind), and had Famke Janssen and the brilliant Jon Favreau in it.When I started watching it, I was entranced straight away. Despite having loads of piracy trailers before the actual movie, and not having much else in the way of extras (only a trailer), I found myself laughing, and nearly in tears at points.Everyone knows (or at least, I know) Jon Favreau from Friends - he played Monica's millionaire boyfriend, Pete, who then tried to become a World Fighting Champion. He was fantastic in this. Playing an artist this time, who does very surreal paintings. (Someone pulling a severed head out of somewhere for example!) He was fantastically funny, brilliantly neurotic, and apart from the awful side burns, and the curly goatee (not both at the same time thankfully), was also kinda cute looking. In a way where you want to give him a cuddle. Not knee-trembling gorgeous.Famke Janssen starts off in the film, as a 9-year-old girl, who is in love with the guy who bullies her. (Right) She's kinda geeky looking, and not what you'd call pretty, but what children ever are? She's totally `in love' with this guy, until she tells all to her big-mouthed friend, and ends up in tears when he dumps her. After this, she quite happily admits to having relationships with thirteen men (I'm falling WAY behind by her standards), which she admits to Adam's character over lunch/dinner/something. Later he tells her that he's only been with two women. (Very reminiscent of a scene in an early season of Friends when Monica and Richard are together, and are telling each other how many people they've slept with. Monica's is less than a ballpoint, and Richard's is two) By the end of the movie, this number has risen up to 14 - having a relationship with a Not-So-Bright-Porn-Star-Robert De Niro- loving actor. The whole point of this movie is that Famke's character is a journalist, and has to write an article about relationships - in which she knows more about, how shall we say, giving guys `pleasure', than actual relationships. Most of the movie is done in flashback, as she goes through most of the bad/good relationships she's had, with narration, as the article gets written through her experiences - with lots of cheesy/romantic lines thrown in along the way!This film goes into what relationships are all about, and how you have to go through a lot of guys before you find the perfect one. It also briefly touches the painful subject of unwanted pregnancy, and then losing the baby anyway. There's also some strange scenes, where they realise they haven't had slept together for 3 weeks, try, and then realise they're "too tired". And then the all too painful break-up. You can work out what happens from there on. This is a terrific film, to watch as a couple (the guys will probably like Famke, as she appears wearing very little most of the time), or to watch alone, and think about the pain of relationships. Or the good things about relationships. Depends what mood you're in really. The DVD is definitely worth keeping, full of fun, happiness, and sadness all at the time. Once in a blue moon, you will get a free DVD, that is actually really good! It will be a good addition to my growing collection. Watch out for an uncredited `cameo' by David Schwimmer (Ross from Friends) too!"
I love movies with great dialogue!

"As a fan of movies that have good dialogue, this one is on my list, along with When Harry Met Sally and Before Sunrise. It's a simple movie about finding the right person in life. Isn't that what so many people spend years of dating trying to determine? This movie approaches relationships in a very honest, funny, and refreshing way. The chemistry between Femke Jaansen and John Favreau is great as they go through the ups and downs of being in a relationship. This movie is for anyone in a relationship...or just wondering when they will ever find their special someone."
