A movie I did like and was a little more than your typical run of the mill rom-com.

"We all go a little crazy when we fall in love." Charlie Darby (LeBlanc) is a well liked principal but has troubles when it comes to falling in love. The minute he thinks he is in love he becomes instantly jealous and his mind messes with him. Any little thought makes him nervous and sets him off. He decides to never fall in love again, but when he meets Molly (Larter) his plans change. This isn't a terrible movie and I did like it. Like most romantic comedies it follows the cookie cutter formula but this one actually has a little something different to make it seem fresh. It takes aspects of many well known rom-coms and adds a little twist to them making it funny, heartfelt and stressful. Overall, a movie I did like and was a little more than your typical run of the mill rom-com. A good date movie. I give this a B.

Is a rom-com supposed to be this creepy?!

It's amazing how this started off so well and took a nosedive so quickly. A new film debuted on Netflix this week and I was excited to see it. After all, I enjoy a nice romantic comedy--and Lovesick looked like it would fit the bill. Now here's the weird part--ten minutes into the film, my wife and I were captivated and loved it but by 20 minutes, my wife and I were appalled and hated the film. This movie stars Matt LeBlanc--you know, of Friends fame. Here he plays Charlie, a principal of an elementary school who seems to have horrible luck with women. Again and again, his girlfriends betray him and tear his heart out and as a result you really feel for the guy. During this initial portion of the film, my wife commented about how likable he was and how much she was enjoying the film. However, despite a great beginning, the film fell apart very quickly. Why? Well, the comedy part comes when you realize that Charlie is mentally imbalanced. He is super-paranoid and cannot allow himself to trust any woman---even the practically perfect Molly (Ali Larter). So, despite them being cute together and hitting it off, soon he becomes incredibly controlling, paranoid and creepy. Plus you find out that his old girlfriends NEVER hurt him-- it was all in his twisted mind. This is because when he falls in love, he becomes incredibly jealous--almost psychotically so. And this is supposed to be funny?! To me, it seems like I am watching a relationship that will end with a murder-suicide--and there is nothing romantic nor comedic about that. Because of this awful plot twist, the film is practically unwatchable. There is no way your date would want to watch this mess, as it's clearly a romance- killer. All this is a real shame, as LeBlanc and Larter are cute together at first and LeBlanc in particular is amazingly likable until he becomes a pathologically paranoid and sicko boyfriend. In fact, I really felt like he deserved so much better than this, as he WAS terrific when he was allowed to be. A horrible, over the top misfire that is painful to watch. It makes you wonder how anyone could find this mess funny. I really wanted to like it.

Principal Crazy

Greetings again from the darkness. If you have been looking for proof that there is a difference between "crazy in love" and "crazy and in love", this first feature film from director Luke Matheny (God of Love, Live action short film Oscar winner in 2011) should end your search. It's also a return to the big screen for Matt LeBlanc, who, despite an extremely successful TV career ("Friends", "Episodes"), has never quite clicked with movie goers.

Mr. LeBlanc stars as Charlie Darby, an energetic elementary school principal beloved by his students and liked by everyone … except those with whom he falls in love. In what comes across as a Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde syndrome, Charlie's charms and romantic notions make it easy for him to connect. But once he falls, a psychotic reaction occurs within his brain and he becomes sociopathically jealous and paranoid and worried sick about things that might happen and things he has imagined to have happened. Charlie's love reactions are played for laughs, but there is also a sense of sadness and danger that is left unexplored.

Writer Dean Young ("King of the Hill") goes for the conventional approach despite Charlie's unconventional affliction. The laughs are small rather than guffaws, and LeBlanc's genuine likability makes us pull for him to break free from this socially crippling behavior. Adam Rodriguez ("CSI: Miami") plays Jason, Charlie's very supportive best friend, and the narrator of the story. His character provides what little insight we get into what happens to Charlie. Ali Larter plays Molly, the most recent object of desire for Charlie. Larter and LeBlanc are very good together, but that doesn't ease the awkwardness of Charlie's reactionary ways.

Other supporting work is provided by Chevy Chase, as Charlie's lonely porn-addicted neighbor (a glimpse at Charlie's future?); Kristen Johnston as an ex-girlfriend and counselor trying to help; the always funny Rachael Harris as a vile and disgusting Charlie date; and the wonderful Connie Sawyer as Nana Bebe. If you are unfamiliar with Ms. Sawyer, she recently turned 102 years old and has appeared as Mrs. Sullivan in a couple of "Ray Donovan" episodes, plus most every seminal TV series since the 1960's (except, ironically, "Friends").

Most will find the movie likable … just like its star. It's best if you not expect a story with an edge or any real insight into human nature or relationships. The screwball musical score is enough to remind us that the film is not taking a serious approach to Charlie's psychotic affliction, yet it does remind us that we all go a bit crazy when we fall in love – let's just hope that it's not a Charlie-type crazy.
