eCupid
This sweet, unpretentious movie is great date night entertainment. The performances are strong, the story engaging and there are some absurdly silly and hilarious moments. In a way, eCupid is a throwback to Disney movies where a nutty professor invents flubber or a VW Beatle sprouts a personality. While the premise is agreeably totally unbelievable, if you're in a mood to be entertained, you can sit back and have a lot of fun on this ride. Not really just fluff, the premise does have a go at a problem most of us face. Using a bit of fantasy, Calciano tells a story of how technology can step in the middle of relationships, and here the movie has a bit of resonance. Whether it's online dating or just being tied to the hip to a cell phone or laptop by work - who's in control? The movie's production values are solid, photography, editing, score and art direction all work in concert to bring the glossy world of LA to the screen successfully - and where better to set a modern day fantasy, eh? And as icing on the cake, it's great to see Morgan Fairchild in a magical cameo appearance. Worth a watch for sure!
