Extreme dating movie review
It's a stupid, painful movie about the lengths to which a collection of losers (we're meant to think they're kinda geeky cool, but really they're far from it) will go in order to find love. Devon Sawa (aging badly) gets tongue-tied around the ladies.Amanda Detmer has a reputation for being bitchy and accident-prone. Ultimately -- after a long setup that makes us think a sex comedy is in store for us -- Amanda and Devon hatch a plan to kidnap Andrew and the girl he's lusting after (Jamie-Lynn Di Scala), the idea being that she'll fall in love with him when he breaks them out of captivity.What with the tired, insulting plot, B-list cast, and quickie production values that emphasize sex appeal (but offer no actual sex), this really should have earned the Lampoon seal of mediocrity.Extreme Dating doesn't even reach mediocrity, actually.The remaining friends must now rescue the captives, while desperately trying to avoid the long arm of the law. That gets Lindsay to thinking and not only about her work.
While on a ski trip, one of them finds passion with a beautiful girl after a random accident on the icy slopes. The only one I ever, ever want to be with, you know?An attractive but unremarkable cast headline this straight-to-video release, but none of them are particularly talented enough to make any of the resulting nonsense as funny as the makers of the film seemed to think it would be.This is Devon Sawa's second film in a row to exploit the "Extreme" name, but thankfully, this one fares better than Extreme Ops, although that doesn't say much at all.Alas, things do not turn out well in Dan's case either.But, nevermind, now co-worker Troy (the very handsome Andrew Keegan) wants to try his luck with the concept of extreme dating.
