Paperback Romance Movie Review

Unlikely, implausible, and unilaterally bizarre, Paperback Romance gives us the story of a crippled romance novelist (Carides) who falls for a jeweler of questionable moral fiber (LaPaglia) and imagines frequent dalliances between them -- before they become real. Through in an A Fish Called Wanda-like bumbled investigation and Romance gets even stranger. Some will enjoy the film, others will just be really, really confused. I mean, I'd take the mega-pretty Carides with or without the leg brace -- who wouldn't?

Aka Lucky Break.
