Romantics Anonymous ChrisK'S REVIEW

A pleasant surprise

BY ChrisK grader

I wasn't sure what to make of this film as I headed into the theatre. I wasn't the one who chose this film out of our film festival program, so I didn't bother to read the overview as I was going to watch it whether I liked it or not...

But once it got rolling, I was pleasantly surprised!

Romantics Anonymous is a light hearted rom-com, which is a lot more palatable than some of the American offerings in the same genre. I managed to get attached to the Angelique as we followed her progression from a scared girl to chocolate factory saviour, and I chuckled as Jean-Rene bumbled his way through life.

If you're looking for a rom-com for a date night, this film makes a pleasant alternative to the mainstream.
