    A disappointment in every aspect…

    I was kinda hyped to this one. It felt like the right when I first
    heard of it. The cast, the posters, the trailer, even the mysterious
    plot about a hole that just appears in the middle of the living room of
    some girl and swallows her boyfriend. I was sold, I wasn’t expecting
    for nothing like a runner-up to the award season, but I was sold to a
    little indie funny and cute rom-com.

    Well, high expectations has its downsides… The shitty thing, I can’t
    be apologetic towards this movie… I tried hard to like it, but the
    movie wasn’t able to hit the right nerve in no moment, and dude, I
    watch movies with an open heart…

    The movie doesn’t actually delivers any of the expected cuteness,
    comedy or quirkiness of the story that actually sounds lovely, funny
    and pretty intriguing. The cast, mostly Brie and Chatwin, as
    protagonist, aren’t able to work all they can, and proved in previous
    works, ’cause the characters are pretty much flat, even more when the
    expositional dialogue tries to state the opposite. The supporting
    characters, unfortunately, are as much as shallow.

    The movie does not tackle none of the big points it brings. It feels
    pretty much like the writer Steve Adams just had a good idea to a
    movie, but wasn’t able to put it in the right way in the script, and
    the director Nick Wernham, in his feature directorial debut, just stuck
    with it ’cause it was what he had.

    The movie failed to be one fine rom-com, and turns out just as a silly
    cautionary tale, that waste the chance to make great statements, about
    art, love, sex, fidelity, and people.

    A look into the human lack of awareness of ourselves

    As Lucy Sherrington says ”You think about doing something and it’s
    always different than what you thought”. I believe that phrase is key
    to what Director: Nick Wernham is bringing to light in this lite
    hearted comedy with a message.

    The plot revolves around Lucy Sherrington – the high school art teacher
    – and the numerous men in this quiet idealized American small town, who
    have convinced themselves that each is the perfect lover for her. Lucy
    does not share the interest in their enthusiasm and when she finally
    gives into Clint – the high school coach – it’s a disaster for her and
    him. In doing this the coach descends into a state of abstraction.

    Then into Lucy’s life walks the stranger Rydell, who is in that small
    town to do something that is completely contrary to his nature, but his
    family expects him to do it. Rydell is the only man to enter into
    Lucy’s life that actually has some level of self awareness because he
    opens his true thoughts to Lucy and explains to her how he feels about
    his own life.

    When the town discovers what has happened to Clint they all gather
    together in friendship to bring the coach back into reality. Lucy makes
    a public confession and Rydell’s brothers arrive to take him home.
    Rydell decides he must be true to himself and abandons his rather
    hateful brothers and goes to find Lucy.

    Throughout this film Clints state of abstraction is symbolized by a
    bottomless hole in Lucy’s living room. When the hole is discovered
    everyone has a different interpretation to it’s meaning. At movies end
    we see Lucy and Rydell standing before another hole but this hole is a
    natural formation on the earth and at cliff’s edge they stand. Rydell
    has obviously fallen in love with Lucy but we are left not knowing if
    Lucy feels the same for Rydell. Lucy now faces her own state of
    abstraction as symbolized by the vast opening beyond the cliff. There
    is a difference between Clint’s mysterious undefinable abstraction and
    Lucy’s highly defined state of abstraction.

    This is a fine movie for the thinking viewer!

    Unmagical Realism

    This is a mixed bag. I can’t recommend a pay-per-view, but it is better
    than average network RomCom variety and there are some redeeming social
    values. I was expecting something funny and original. There was some
    humor and originality, but it didn’t progress. There was this
    made-for-TV religious movie feeling throughout most of the film. The
    creepy small-town seemed to be the plight of the main character, but
    you quickly see that shallow waters run very deep in the major players
    of the film. If there were a few script modifications, this could have
    been a good film, the actors could have pulled it off. There were a few
    Recognizable actors and the camera work was good.

    Characters are filled out making it a surprisingly useful movie.

    Characters are filled out making No Stranger Thank Love a surprisingly
    useful movie. When faced with ethical decisions on love and romance
    poor choices can lead people in real life to fall into a ‘hole’ which
    all of us are familiar with. As often casualties of love do need a
    lifeline to crawl out of their hole. During this process Colin Hanks is
    Suspended in a black inter-dimensional hole one of the main characters
    said, without any distractions I have a new sense of clarity. You may
    think to yourself this is a corny story line but don’t dismiss it too
    quickly. When Colin’s character, Coach Clint Coburn is faced with
    multiple consequences that would impact his world he is forced to admit
    his love for his wife. What are your thoughts on sensory deprivation
    leading to a new sense of clarity?

    A sweet but different romantic comedy

    This film tells the story of a beautiful woman in a small town, who is
    the centre of attention of all men because of her beauty. One day, the
    man she has a rendezvous with falls into a hole that mysteriously
    appears in her living room. She struggles to rescue her date, ad
    eventually the whole town knows about this mysterious hole.

    The plot is a simple one, but ”No Stranger Than Love” is actually quite
    entertaining. Alison Brie plays the beautiful woman who tries to ward
    off the many potential suitors, and she is so natural and charming
    while she does that. It is quite funny to see how numerous men try to
    win her heart, and it is even funnier that the hole just appears in her
    living room. Hilarious things happen in the film, but there is a
    touching message at the end. It is a sweet but different romantic
    comedy. I enjoyed watching it.
