Stuck In Love Movie Review

Y’gotta love a movie with tons of heart.  “Stuck In Love” is just such a movie. It cleverly ties all things together into a gorgeous bow in the shape of a Hollywood ending.  Bill Borgens (Greg Kinnear) is a very successful writer & pretty pathetic at love.  His ex-wife, Erica (Jennifer Connelly) was driven into the arms of another man.  Then there’s Bill’s free-spirited daughter, Samantha (Lilly Collins.) When it comes to having sex, she’s a Point A straight to Point B person. She’s not a dabbler.  Bill’s son, Rusty (Nat Wolf) is engulfed in his awkward teenage phase.

Bill gets by, sexually speaking, thanks to his frisky neighbor, Tricia (Kristen Bell.) She often stops by to drop off a package, herself. It’s quick, easy & tearing Bill apart inside.  Enter Lou (Logan Lerman.) He’s just a nice guy who meets Samantha & sets out to be her friend.  It’s great to watch the ice thaw on Samantha over the course of the film.  This is a well-written movie & a well-acted movie. It reminds me of ‘Love Actually” & that’s one of my favorites. I highly recommend it.  Rated R.  Follow me on Twitter @leoquinones.
