My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend (2010)

“Favorite President?” – Jesse Young

“Rutherford B. Hayes.” – Troy Parker

“You can’t just make up a name!” – Jesse Young

Number of Times Seen – Twice (2 Feb 2011 and 26 Apr 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A young divorcee seeking love meets two great men on the same day and must deal with trying to choose between them.

My Take on it – Intriguing idea that is a bit too saturated for its own good.

The cast is fine and Alyssa Milano does a nice job in the lead role.

It’s easy to feel for her character as the story unfolds in ways that we might not expect.

The rest of the characters aren’t developed well enough and they seem to be very stereotypical in the way that they are presented throughout which makes things feel very unoriginal the whole way through.

Unfortunately, the story never quite feels as if there is too much at risk and the various plot twists that are revealed eventually make things even less satisfying by the way that it all plays out.

The build up of the film works, but is ruin by the way things move along which is quite a shame to watch.

Besides Milano, the film has a strong supporting cast that includes Beau Bridges, Carol Kane, Michael Landes and Christopher Gorham, but none of them are able to keep things more enjoyable.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Much of Tom Lenk’s dialogue during the Spry Gum commercial shoot was improvised by the actor. The voice heard off-camera belongs to Daryn Tufts, the director of the movie. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
