"Wow - just watched it, my head is spinning!
The most FAST quick-fire dialogue ever seen in my 60 years of movie watching.
Could have been a play, no real action at all. it's 100% dialogue. and man, is it fast! fast talking, quick wit, amazing script. the characters take turns telling their story, their gripes on love and the opposite sex. first the men, then, the women. the rapid wit firing back and forth is reckless speed of headache proportions.
The ending is sweet. meaningful even. I love the Frank Sinatra song that comes on for the ending credits. watch the credits all the way thru and there are some out-takes.
Funny, entertaining, mostly true stuff on love and sex and the games people play.
Not for kids. major big swearing and discussions of sexual nature. BJs, anal, cheating, nothing held back. not for prudes.
I really liked each character. all were cast perfectly.
be good - safe sex, kids!! Gramma Sally"

"Mysteriously labelled a romantic comedy, this disappointed the critics who tried to see it as one. It's a fiendishly accurate depiction of the extreme positions we take over love-and-sex. Because it explodes stereotypical attitudes the film takes the form of conversation, the director/writer/actor adroitly blending the Woody Allen subject matter with His Girl Friday pacing. Each actor gets a manic stand up comic turn, each one does a good job with what they've got to deliver. It's smart, wise and funny. Best enjoyed by those who've made a relationship mistake or two and can afford to laugh at themselves. Not recommended for those looking for romantic comedies (which are often just a sentimental look at stereotypes). Here those stereotypes get their heads blown off."
Love, What Love is.

"All the talk and all the real stuff that would cost you thousands of dollars on a psychiatrist sofa to learn. It's down to earth and brutal with honesty. If you ever had your heart broken, you have got to own this movie. After you see it, give it to a friend who had their heart broken.
oh and it's funny too."
