Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
Like so many other low-budget, independent films, this effort by writer and director Valerie Breiman is that least expensive and most dreaded of Generation-X cinematic projects, a romantic comedy. However, in a year of several surprisingly effective indie offerings from the genre, including The Tao of Steve and Smiling Fish & Goat on Fire, Love & Sex joins the fray ably with an intelligent and funny script, skilled stars, and a zippy pace. Seemingly mismatched leads Jon Favreau and Famke Janssen serve up generous portions of genuine chemistry, with memorable supporting work from Cheri Oteri and an underused Ann Magnuson. If Favreau's neurotic artist is a bit too consciously modeled on the oft-seen nebbish played by Woody Allen, this mimicry, as well as an occasional foray into the style of television sitcoms, are the screenplay's only real flaws. Breiman's facility with her cast marks her as a talent to watch.
