Editorial Review:
Three young meneach cursed with two left feetfind that the right steps to salsa dancing can lead to love in this hilarious romantic film"a feel-good date movie in the Four Weddings mold" (Uncut)! Starring Craig Ferguson ("The Drew Carey Show"), Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone), Jane Horrocks ("Absolutely Fabulous"), Adrian Lester, Catherine McCormack,Jimi Mistry, David Morrissey and Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense), Born Romantic will take you for a dizzying spin through three quirky courtshipsand leave you "smiling and believing that love really can conquer all" (Good Housekeeping)! A certified lounge lotharioseeks to heat things up with an art historian who's cooled on the idea of love. A failed musician wants to strum the right chord with the bride he jilted years earlier. And a dyslexic mugger with a chloroform-doused cloth finds himself knocked out by a pretty grave attendant. They've got their workcut out for them. And yet, at a local club pulsating with the hot sounds of salsa music, any one ofthese three could find the answer to his romantic quandary if they can only find the rhythm in time.
A cheeky comedy about love's labor being well beyond lost, Born Romantic stutters out of the gate and never quite recovers. Perhaps it's the gaggle of local quips, jokes based on British television personalities, for instance, or the cameo-like nature of its ever-revolving cast, but director David Kane can't seem to sit still long enough to artfully set up his punch lines--anathema to a feature-length comedy. Set mostly in a London salsa club, the film trails behind a series of lonely thirtysomething singles as they search out one-night stands in the hopes of stumbling upon something more meaningful, namely love. As they shuttle to and fro in late-night minicabs, we're afforded insight into their shortcomings, past disappointments, shagging abilities, and ostensible charms, the cab serving as both confession booth and makeshift bedroom. Featuring a cast of recognizably talented faces, including Jimi Mistry (East Is East) and Olivia Williams (Rushmore), Born Romantic unfortunately never manages to shake its initial impression of being an inflated sitcom better pared down for television. --Fionn Meade
