Romance & Rejection Movie Review
In the end, this sad-sack melodrama/romantic comedy proves it's nothing new -- with Mike's neurotic and nerve-wracked pursuit of Clara Bellar (last seen as the Nanny robot from A.I.) taking up the bulk of the film. We're meant to find this as amusing, but Dinsdale invents Mike as such an enormously unlikable loser that I actually felt a little giddy when he kept missing the girl's phone calls.
Too bad it all works out in the end, even though he has to make that oh-so-difficult choice between his obvious soulmate and the girl that provides the hot sex. I mean, it did turn out right in the end, didn't it? I wasn't paying much attention.
Aka So This Is Romance?
