Stuck in Love movie review

What can I say about Stuck in Love? Here’s some rambling thoughts: It features great performances from its cast, it has quality cinematography (although not what I would call a visually memorable film, but there’s some good stuff in there at the beach and the reflection on a car windshield, etc) and the movie movies at a decent pace… It’s a fine story but I’m not sure I buy the ending (or much of the plot between Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly), but it’s a satisfying enough movie. Perhaps it would have been better to focus on one of the love stories rather than trying to make all three the center of the film… the thing is, none of them are really strong enough on their own but when placed all together in the same film, they almost distract from each other.The second act turn doesn’t come out of nowhere, but… that’s not what I thought was going to happen, that’s for sure, so I can’t say that the movie is especially well written, but it’s not badly underwritten, either. I wouldn’t say this is a melodrama, but it’s dangerously close and yet somehow still pulls it off.

Anyway, Stuck in Love is a decent film and worth a look. It’s currently streaming on Netflix, so this is a low effort watch, too!
