Movie Summary

Director:
David Kane
Released:
2000
Rating:
R
Born Romantic is a unique take on love stories; it's strictly the male perspective. Jimmy (Adrian Lester) is a cab driver and personal consultant to three young men who are experiencing life together in London and looking for love. Fergus (David Morrissey) has nothing but memories of his long-lost high school sweetheart, Mo (Jane Horrocks), and the greatest thing he can imagine is finding her again and making up for rejecting her. Frankie (Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson) has a much more pressing issue to deal with. He's still living with his ex-wife. They've emotionally already moved away from each other but just can't afford to follow suit in reality. Their third friend Eddie (Jimi Mistry) has a guilty conscience that stands between him and romance. He's robbed the woman of his dreams Jocelyn (Catherine McCormack), a cemetery worker, and now he has to find her and return what he took. Tied together by the world of salsa dancing and lonely hearts, the men try to survive a world that isn't made for born romantics.moreless

    Variety Derek Elley

    Highly enjoyable when all its gears are clicking, but rarely as good as it should be.

    Los Angeles Times John Anderson

    Although Born Romantic is sweetly intentioned and staunchly on the side of love, it meanders long to enough to alienate whatever affection it otherwise earns.
