  • Summary: In one Los Angeles hotel, each room hides a different trouble with romance. Jack and Jill can't get up the hill because Steve is blocking their way. Paul and Karen have been married for 7 years and could use a little spice (aka Rachel) in their love life…well, maybe not. Jimmy is from Mars and Steph is from Venus and they’ve got commitment issues that span the solar system. And Nicole thought she knew what men wanted, and what she wanted, but Charlie’s different…or is he not? Sometimes you get love advice from all the right - and wrong - people; who’s to know who is who and which is which? (Girls Club Entertainment)

    The performances are convincing, and director Gene Rhee does a good job of outlining the messiness of human affections here, showing how we don't always know what we really want or how to get it.
  2. Ever fast-forward through a late-night cable romance just to get to the good parts? This amateurish relationship dramedy features all the stuff you'd skip, and nothing else.

    The toilet caper is the lowest point of a movie with many low points, including bad acting and a generic script.
  4. Unlike Michael Knowles's similarly plotted and vastly superior "Room 314," The Trouble With Romance is visually stagnant and tonally bewildered.

    Very little that anyone here says, or does, has the slightest connection to any known reality, and if a film is going to perform an autopsy on love, the corpse should at least be recognizable.

    Can a movie get some "at least we tried" low-budget pity points, man? Move back home, all of you.
