Movie Summary

Valerie Weiss
LOSING CONTROL is a 2012 theatrical feature that introduces you to the intelligence and humor of a true romantic comedy and plays for both men and women. The only movie ever shot on the Harvard Campus, LOSING CONTROL is a fresh and funny independent film that explores the universal idea that, at some point, everyone fears that there is a “right” way to find love, and that they might be going about it the wrong way. This original romantic comedy about a female scientist who wants empirical proof that her boyfriend is “the one,” stars Miranda Kent (Matumbo Goldberg, Campus Ladies) as the tightly wound scientist, Sam, questioning all that is in her heart because she didn’t test it against what is in her head with long time boyfriend Ben, played by the charming, Reid Scott (Veep, The Big C). Add to that the actor, Kathleen Robertson (Boss, Beverly Hills 90210), as Best Friend, Leslie, playing the foil to the slightly neurotic Sam and you have the makings of a true romantic comedy classic. LOSING CONTROL brings to the party comparisons of other great comedic romantic couples like Julia and Richard, Cameron and Ben, and Meg Ryan and anyone.moreless

    Some of Weiss' funniest material gets lost between episodes of outright silliness; to paraphrase Mark Twain's assessment of Richard Wagner, the film is smarter than it looks.

    The film, in its defense, is far too vacuous to be accused of having any kind of agenda--it just happens to get its politics wrong along with everything else.
