I was looking for a relaxing comedy and Love and Other Disasters did satisfy that!
The movie is about a vogue fashion intern, Emily (Britanny Murphy) who love setting up her friends and helping them find true love. She lives with her gay friend, Peter (Matthew Rhys) and shares a very close relationship with him. A new fashion photographer starts working with Emily and she thinks he would be the perfect guy for Peter. Peter on the other hand is smitten by someone and tries to pursue his love interest. Emily is so blinded by setting up people that she forgets that she has someone who loves her and wishes to be with her right in front of her. The truth slowly unwinds as Emily is on the path to finding her love.
Peter’s point of view is narrated as it is hilarious! There are some parts where you start to think that the movie is lame but once I saw this part, I got interested.
It was a good watch for me as I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was going to be like the regular boy-meets-girl-and-falls in love kind of movie, but it was most certainly not.
My Rating: 3.5/5
(An extra 0.5 just for this clip!)
My favorite line: Dawn French’s analogy from the clip!
